We went to the old Log for our annivesary ( had not been there for years as we moved out of the western suburbs) my wife & I each had the glazed crown roast of pork...yes the salad came with ranch but that is what I probably would have ordered, the pork was perfect..just the right combo of heat & sweet in the glaze, meat was moist and flavorful, the potatos were a little plain but that was about only bad thing to say about it. The Play ( Everyone loves Opal) was funny and fun..they must feed the cat prozac he is so mellow.
One thing to keepm in mind is that they have an older clientel and so food & the plays are greared to that..nothing edgey here.

This was our first (and last) visit to Old Log Theater. We were there to see Dixie Swim Club which was a great show, lots of good clean fun. This is a show you can safely bring your parents to. But skip the meal. The food was very disappointing. Do to a group mixup we didn't get the selections we had wanted and they only prepare the exact amount ordered so they couldn't correct that error. When we sat down there was a salad in place (already dressed with ranch - no choice here).,..and the sad excuse of a dessert was already on the table. A small bowl that was supposed to be apple crisp - looked like they opened a huge can of apple pie filling and put a scoop in each dish and sprinked some granola crunch on top. The entrees were alright but nothing to even talk about. There were 5 of us at the table. Nobody ate the dessert. We all ate some of the entrees (mostly chicken - even though that wasn't what 2 of us thought we had requested), because we were all hungy.

We saw "On Golden Pond" and it was an excellent, moving production that we have recommended to co-workers and friends. The meal was okay--not spectacular but acceptable. We will be back.

We went with a group tour and had a wonderful experience. The service was excellent, but most of the group was disappointed in their food choice. The show "The Dixie Swim Club" more than made up for the disappoinments in dining. Even the men were impressed, though it may have been more of a girly play. It was truly delightful.
