Unexpected Getaway

While looking for a place to eat with my Mother and sister, my mother recalled a place just off of Rt. 1 that she would go to when she was in college. Wanting to hear a bit of her nostalgic stories and having driven past the Log Cabin many times having wondered what kind of place it was, we... read more

Cold rainy day and The Log Cabin was a perfect place to warm by a cracking fireplace! Very warm and relaxing dinner. The broiled whole Maine Lobster was excellent as was the Butter Squash and the Broccoli Casserole was delicious!! Fresh crusty bread was served warm with butter and the Applecider Vinaigrette salad dressing was the best I've ever had!... More

My husband and I have been eating at the Log Cabin for special occasions for 25 years! We love the food and the service is wonderful! I cannot say enough good things about this. Tammy (the owner) has always made our visits special, she remembers us (even in the early years) and we have loved eating here and getting to... More

No need to drive to Alexandria or DC for a birthday lobster treat when steamed live lobster is available so close to home! The prime rib was plenty for two to share, or take home ample leftovers. The salad bar lettuce mixture was fresh and crisp, the dressings creamy, the bread crusty. And then there were the desserts--complimentary chocolate crime... More

The quality of the food has gone down in the number of years I have eaten at the Log Cabin. Be it the economy or the kitchen as the base culprit is subject to discussion. Service was good however a little slow. Ambiance is ok considering that you are right next to a 4 lane highway.

My aunt was in for the weekend from Dallas TX and wanted seafood. We were freezing with the sudden change in weather. The restaurant was warm and cozy with the fireplace going. We had a great meal and the lobster tails on the broiled seafood platter were quite large! Don't miss the broccoli casserole side dish.

The food is awesome Always fresh and delicious. The service is friendly and efficient. Warm décor and staff. The only thing I think they should improve would be the salad bar, or just offer a small dinner salad.

We enjoyed an early supper of crab stuffed rainbow trout and crab sampler. The trout was beautifully cooked and the crab sampler offered four distinct preparations and each had their charm. The chef is not shy about the proper role and use of fats to impart rich flavor and the crab was excellent. Portions may look small but the depth... More

I ordered fresh whole Maine Lobster, but the lobster tasted old, tough and not fresh. The server forgot to bring the melted butter, and after waiting 10 minutes, I got up and told the manager. Mojito, (made with vodka?) was $10. The menu prices were much higher than any other nicer restaurants in the area? I will never go back... More
