“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Can't beat the food here! I always have the Prime Rib because the price is great! although all of there dishes are wonderful and wont leave you feeling like you had to empty your wallet. Great atmosphere although it is a little darker than i would like it to be. Very good place to eat when visiting Galena

“Warm family dinner in classy small town steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Grandma, grandpa, mom dad and the toddler all had an excellent meal. The space was comfortable, the food was delicious: Ny Strip perfectly seasoned, Prime Rib was spot on and Grandma's Lamp Chops didn't get shared with anybody else, and the service was as crisp and up to par as any big city spot.

It was the cap to an great family weekend in Galena. We'll be back for dinner next time we're in town.

“Expected more.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We dined at the Log Cabin on a Thursday evening. Drinks at the bar were below average. I had the prime rib, medium rare. The prime rib was above average. Wait staff was fine. We also tried the "Greek" fries. Those were good as well.

I was not disappointed at the Log Cabin, I guess I just expected more. From the word of mouth recommendations I've heard I expected a top notch experience. that was not achieved.

Try it and make you're own assumptions.

“Great Place for Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

We were in Galena on Dec. 1st to celebrate our 52nd anniversary. We decided we wanted to have dinner at a nice steak house. We were not disappointed at all.
We were seated right away, our server ( Alex was his name ) Was very prompt with service, and very helpful with ordering our dinner. We weren't real hungry, but knew we wanted a steak.
We ordered the Jr. Filet which was 8 ounces. It was the perfect amount. Along with it came a relish tray with cheese spread, dinner rolls, a great fresh dinner salad, and then our steak with potato. Next time were in Galena, we will dine here again.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

We chose the Log Cabin for dinner on our first night in Galena based on reading reviews on Trip Advisor. It was a top notch experience. We weren't sure what to expect and did make a reservation. However, the restaurant wasn't packed and we were seated right away even though we arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation. Being the night before Thanksgiving, we figured it could go either way. The food was fantastic! We ordered Greek style (scallops for him, filet for me). Everything about our meal was excellent - from the bread, to the salad to the entrees. We also split the red velvet cake for dessert.

The whole atmosphere was very classy and yet warm and welcoming. Our service was fantastic. We were VERY casually dressed after wrapping up a 3 hour drive in Thanksgiving traffic from Chicago but still felt at home.
