Second time at Log Haven, and just as incredible. Food is outstanding (artichoke soup was superb) and the setting is unparalleled. Jeremy was a great server. Thanks for another fabulous dinner!

Service and food were fantastic. The elk, bison, calamari, clams, cauliflower, and bread pudding were all delicious.

In a region where restaurants often range from bad to worse, Log Haven is a jewel that matches the best dining anywhere in the world. Erik was a terrific server, and fellow skier. The food here is simple but sophisticated. This is a chef defined restaurant that prides itself on personalizing its service and cuisine. Wine choices were excellent and in a broad price range. Be sure you have 4 wheel drive if its storming, but worth the beautiful drive on the mountain road. The setting and waterfalls are gorgeous as well.

It snowed the night we were there and the place looked picturesque. We always enjoy dining at Log Haven. I ordered a medium well cooked bison steak and unfortunately for me it was delivered rare. My wife and I swapped dinners and all was good. She was happy.

All the dishes were pretty amazing. I know the scenery is supposed to be the real star here, but it seems like they could have done a little bit better with the ambiance within the restaurant itself.

Incredible food--mostly familiar and non-adventurous, but just unique enough to be noteworthy. Everything was perfectly prepared and as good or better than you'd expect based on the menu descriptions. Highly recommended.

Good food, okay service.
In fairness, I really have no complaints regarding log haven.
Overall, my experience was pleasant.
I’m comparing this meal to the tree room at Sundance resort. And while the food is a virtual tie, the service at the tree room is second to none.

My suggestion would be to visit the tree room for a meal, and you’ll see the difference in service.

Again, no complaints here, just a comparison.....G

What can I say about Log Haven that hasn’t been said many times before. It’s GREAT. It’s beautiful. The food is excellent. Service is always wonderful. Our thanks to Erik our waiter for a great job with the menu. The elk and filet were wonderful. The ladies both loved the scallops. Always recommended. Always delightful. Happy anniversary for the restaurant owners. 25 years with this beautiful place up Millcreek Canyon. You should be very proud.

Great experience, but waiters need to describe plate when serving dishes as opposed to just laying each plate down quickly and walking away. Also, our waiter served men cocktails first before womem who were present at table. These are essential steps for a restaurant striving to be world class. In spite of these issues, I will be back as I am sure management will continue to refine its processes. The ambient and food was superb.

Beautiful mountain setting sets the stage for a solid evening meal. Diverse but limited offerings for both starter and main plates, nice wine list with Europe well represented. All our food choices were well prepared and savory, the elk main plate paired with a southern Rhône stands out as perhaps the star main course. Apple crisp desert was disappointing, lacking both texture and flavors.
Wait staff is competent, knowledgeable but discrete. A table next to the fireplace....rounds out a very enjoyable evening.
We reserve the rating “outstanding” for those rare events when the overall experience stands well above the norm....we found this to be the case at Log Haven.

A great atmosphere with excellent food, the menu has some old favorites mixed in with some exotically local dishes. Ambiance is some of the best in the valley. Service is good, but not great. It would have been nice if the waiter knew more about the dishes.

My wife and I got married here 3 years ago and we try to go here every year for our anniversary. The area is absolutely beautiful and the environment is always wonderful. This was the first time we went while there was snow on the ground and it was beautiful. Service is always great and the food was absolutely amazing. So, so good! Will always come back when able to.

We had dinner to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. We arrived a little early and the manager was very rude, informing us the restaurant was not ready and we would have to wait. We asked to sit in the bar and the manager informed us there was no bar tender but we could “wander around”. Once we were eventually seated, the food and service was ok but no one went out of there way to make it a special occasion.

Beautiful restaurant. We were seated in a noisy area, unfortunately. The food is wonderful. My husband ordered the bison steak, and preferred the elk he had previously. My duck was delicious. The special anniversary red wine was also good. Service was a bit less attentive than desired.

My husband and I loved it here! The food was great and it was an adorable place. We will definitely be back.
One small bad thing- this was our first time, and parking was limited, so we parked down the street a bit, which was fine. However, it took us SO LONG to find the front door! There’s no signage so we were just wandering around in the dark/cold until we found the door!

The atmosphere is the main selling point here. Beautiful location up Millcreek Canyon with a lit up waterfall in view across the street. The live piano is a nice touch. Inside is romantically lit and very appealing. Food is good but not great.

So delicous!!! The best scallops I've ever had. In the most landlocked state! The waterfall across the way is so beautiful. Service was amazing. We were running late and didn't have time to change into nicer clothing but they still treated us like gold! Thanks Log Haven!!
