A cozy little place with delicious dishes. I had the summer plate of crabcakes on fried green tomatoes on a corn relish. Fresh and delicious! Our server was attentive and eager to help.

No kidding, this is my favorite restaurant in the DC area; food is DELICIOUS (maple glazed, cedar planked salmon topped with lump crab - you will thank me), the cocktails are the best I've ever had at a restaurant (their originals are amazing), and the atmosphere is tops - quiet, cozy, extremely friendly. This is always my pick for a... More

You can never go wrong at Log Cabin. It is consistently delicious and well prepared. Crab dishes are excellent. Be sure to try specials. This is a must visit.

Great atmosphere, excellent food, and fantastic service. The mushroom caps (mushrooms stuffed with crab imperial) were perfect. The seafood was well prepared across the appetizers and the entrees. Worth every penny and won't disappoint.

The Log Cabin is one of those special places for great food, service and an ambiance that fits well with family gatherings and even for a romantic setting; especially near the fireplace area. On each of our trips through Virginia we make it a point to dine there. We have yet to be disappointed.

The staff here is exceptional. They handled our large group with no issues, even splitting checks as necessary. Many raved about the crab. I had the filet and it was perfectly cooked. The waitstaff was present without hovering and super attentive. The only complaint was the smoke smell from the fireplace. Overwhelming and my clothes still stink today from it.... More

My wife and I go to this restaurant for our wedding anniversary each year. The Log Cabin is a great place for a quiet/romantic meal. They have a large wood burning fireplace that gives the restaurant a lot of character. We always ask for the table in front of the fireplace. They are known for having great lobster and steak....

This was our go to place for special occasions when we lived nearby. It has been 5 years since we were able to get down to the area and with family coming in to that area for a visit we knew we had to go back. We were not disappointed. The feel of the place is very homey and quaint.... More
