We had reservations for 5pm. We arrived about 10 minutes early and waited another 20 minutes at the bar. The bartender was wonderful. He kept us entertained while we waited. Our waitress was good. Our steaks were good. The fried shrimp were in a batter that was missing any seasoning. They were very disappointing. For the money we spent it... More

Step back in time when you enter the wood paneled Log Cabin. Grab a drink at their old school oak bar and wait for your table. The Greek guys who run the place are great. You can get just about everything on the menu "Greek-style" which is AWESOME. The steaks and chops are fabulous, so too is the fish and... More

While the decor and lighting is sub par the food makes up for it. Large salads, a relish tray, loaf of bread and huge baked potatoes accompany the entrees. I had the deep fried shrimp and they were not overdone nor greasy as they are at other restaurants where I have had them. The service was very good and the... More

You might want to make a reservation on weekends because this place is very busy. Locals and visitors line up to eat here and after dining here ourselves, we know why. The meals are large and mid to upper ranged in price, but the steaks are, without doubt, some of the best steaks I have ever tasted. The Ribeye I... More

We have been coming to Galena for almost 10 years with friends and ALWAYS make it a point to have dinner at the Log Cabin. The service is excellent, the food mouth-watering, and a great place to relax with friends. The prime rib is excellent as is the rest of the menu items. Would definitely recommend it and have told...

On a couples visit to Galena, this was "the" place we were to have dinner. It did not disappoint. We of course ordered steaks, and were greatly impressed with the quantity and, more importantly, the quality. The service was good, but but like you would expect from a higher priced steak house, thus the "home town service". This is not... More

This had to be one of the worst restaurants I ate at in years. From the food to the service all was miserable. I'm not one to write a bad review but that's how awful my ecperience was. I will not return nor would I recommend it to any of my friends

This place was amazing! The food was soooo delicious. Our main entrees and our appetizer (the saganake) was divine! We could taste the care and quality that went into the food. I had the steak and my husband had some sea food plate. The seasonings were savory, and the flavors were well-balanced. The server was friendly and efficient. Our experience... More

We went to this restaurant because of a recommendation from a friend about the great steak. We ordered the king filet and fried chicken. While we waited for our meal, we were given bread and butter AND a basket of crackers and bread sticks AND veggies and this amazing cheese spread. There was no need to order an appetizer! The...
