Went for bloody Mary's, stayed for the fish

Bloody Mary's are really seasoned and come with a monster meat stick. The deep fried fish and chips could feed 3 people! No need for Friday's all you can eat fish fry

My 7 year old daughter and I love to go here for dinner and split the fish dinner. We both leave with our bellies very happy. The food and service are both great.

My wife and I enjoy trying new restaurants around our region, not minding to drive a while for a good experience. It just happened that we discovered the Old Log Cabin restaurant a year or so ago and have returned several times. Over time we've been trying to replace our former favorite, The Vineyard in Anoka, and haven't been able... More

If you eat here you get a lot of home Cooking. Very Homey old style eatery. The atmosphere is like a Local Pub that people wait in line to Enjoy.

I also like the cabin steak dinner. It's a god piece of meat with potatoes any stile,I get the fried mushrooms piled... More

We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. It's a great local place; love the log cabin decor and food. It could be busy on a weekend, but go early, it's worth it. The service has always been top notch, with friendly, efficient servers. The steaks and fish & seafood are especially delicious, as are the home made... More

Very popular/busy old time place. Advise early arrival (especially week-ends). Broad menu. Great lunch specials. Usually 4 or more daily soup choices. Prices are very reasonable. Food consistently good. Service is usually very good.

We ordered 3 glasses of wine, a rum & coke, and a Bloody Mary. The wines and rum and coke were fine but the Bloody Many was watery. We ordered onion... More

Arrived around 1800 hrs and the place looked busy by the number of cars in the lot. People were waiting but we were seated within 5 minutes. The waitress was right there within three minutes to get us started. I ordered a Humongus Fungus (breaded mushrooms) and they were really big and plentiful (a dozen). It looked like a meal... More
