Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have always loved the Cabin. Although we live nearby, we don't go there often because they are pricey. It's a great place to take guests, though. The food is excellent.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I have eaten here since I was a child. Still go there 55 years later, and the food is still great. Country atmosphere in an actual cabin.

“Great food, good service, miserable parking”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

This restaurant has been around since at least the 1950s, but neither we nor the couple we were with had been there in many years.

Initially, The Cabin was one of the very few restaurants in town and had a reputation as a premier dining-out spot. I was happy to see that they've kept up their standards for food (variety, price, and especially quality), and service was well done (on a very busy evening, with a large Christmas gathering in the next room).

Unfortunately, their parking lot is the same as it was in the 1950s, too, and the neighboring oriental restaurant has understandably never been welcoming to Cabin patrons' use of their storefront lot. Parking was available across the street (a main drag, but not busy during dinner hour), but I found that out only by going into the restaurant to ask the hostess. The Cabin would really take a step up by arranging for patron parking with commercial properties on the same side of the street, and for heaven's sake they could at least post a sign on the building about using the lot across the street.

We'll probably go back, but early in the week (this visit was on a Thursday evening), and when I make reservations I'll make sure they aren't expecting any large gatherings.

“Very good service...Very good meal...”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

I have read several reviews and thought a more current review would help.
My wife and I had dinner reservations this past weekend and our experience was very good.

The hostess and waitress were very friendly and our waitress ( PAM ) made sure we were taken care with anything from water to more bread.

There was a table of 16 next to us she was also working and she always checked with us for anything we needed ( even extra olives for the martini )

We had the raspberry brie as an appetizer. It was excellent. The fruit and bread were very fresh and the brie was prepared just right.

I had a chopped salad, which by the way is 1/2 price with an entrée, It was very good.

My wife is a prime rib person and her entrée was cooked to her liking and was of nice size.

I had the ship and shore which is a filet and scampi. It was excellent.

Yes it is an older style of restaurant, but that is part of its charm. You can actually have a conversation with your significant other or group as it does not have the loud bar areas close by.

So maybe some changes have been made based on other comments but we think you should give the Cabin a shot.
