Driving by, it may not look like much is going on, but walk in the door and you'll find our original knotty pine walls and bar (that date back to the 1930s), friendly faces, and a menu that the locals keep coming back for. We don't do things too fancy, or too crazy, but we put a lot of effort into making sure your meal is fresh and delicious and (with the exception of, say, quinoa) pronounceable! The local perch is always a hit, but try our excellent chicken, shrimp, steaks, and other favorites! Oh, and save room for our homemade dessert-- it's always scratchmade and usually heavenly!

found this on Trip advisor so decided to give it a try and was glad we did. The place was really busy but got seated really quickly, then they got busier! Our meals came with salads which were nice portions and well done. The salad also served with pretzel bread which was to die for, it was a high light... More

We stopped in for dinner and the food was excellent, we had fresh lake whitefish and perch- the service was very attentive. The place was packed by 7 pm, so plan ahead for a great time and great food with excellent service !

Went here recently with my in-laws...the selection and food was excellent. Nice to see balanced choices and reasonable portions. And the Creme Brulee was SO good!

We found the Cabin based on reviews from Trip Advisor and I'm so glad we tried it. The staff and owners were so wonderful, our dinners were fantastic - especially the perch! But the peach pie!!!! What a treat! I look forward to going back in the fall.

When I visited this restaurant, my pork chop was served medium rare.Not a good impression.The pretzel rolls were good,but I don't like medium rare pork chops!

Marja J, Owner at The Cabin, responded to this review

You are absolutely correct-- that is unacceptable and I'm very sorry. I'm not sure what night you came in but I do hope you sent back the pork chop so that whoever was on the grill knew they made a big mistake-- all of our cooks are well aware that pork needs to be cooked thoroughly. My apologies to you,... More

We went here because of the reviews on this site. Are we ever glad we did! We shared the tempura shrimp and we both loved it. We also shared the prime rib. We both agreed that it was probably the best we have ever had. They ran out of peach pie so we opted for the strawberry rhubarb. I can't... More

4th visit in 2 years. Tonight I had the perch sandwich. It was superb, cooked perfectly with a wonderful assortment of garnishes. Staff very friendly and owner Marja a pleasure to talk to. Highly recommended

We made reservations for a fish boil for Saturday by email about two weeks before our trip. We stopped in the day of our arrival. After ordering our drinks at the bar, something came up in conversation with Marya that reminded her of our email reservation. Instantly she yelled back to Erik that we were there from Illinois. This is... More

I got the whitefish and husband got a steak. Both were good. The clam chowder was the best we have had. The customer service was excellent. Marja made the desserts for the night and the one we had was fantastic. The owner came over and talked to us, which wasn't expected, but she is a delight. What I liked the... More
