Restaurant was not busy but food and service took an extraordinary amount of time. They offered sparkling water but it was "frozen," so for anyone who doesn't drink alcohol, you were out of luck. The food was just okay. The ambiance is the best thing about this restaurant. I wouldn't go back.

Excellent meal. We had the Vermont and shaved asparagus salads followed by the Halibut and Chicken Parmesan. The salads were fresh, generous and creative. The entrées were hot and delicious. Also generous.
Wine list is good with some reasonable values. Overall very nice dining experience in a beautiful setting. It’s now on our favorite list.

Restaurant had sold out of moderate priced wines $50 two we asked for in $50range. Did not have one of three deserts on menu, waitress threw away pork chop bone I asked to take hone with meat on it for my dog. Service was poor too many guests for servers on hand. Poor experience.

The food here was fabulous. We are at several nice restaurants while in Highlands and Log Cabin food was our favorite. The wait staff was nice but they were not very attentive and did not seem to have been trained very well (ie: they did not offer us anything to drink after we told them we weren’t having wine). But overall it was a good experience and we will be back.

The server was a little friendly. No one smiled. And i felt that they would be happy if I were to hurry and leave

I ordered filet. Med rare. It was good but more medium. I did not mention that however.

It had been 3 years since I went to to the Log Cabin. I hope they just had a rare unfriendly night.wont hurry back though.

The building itself is charming, and might be worth a repeat visit just for that. This said: 1) service was a bit abrupt, and not very polished. I really expected better for a bill for two that came to over $100. 2) while the pasta/mushroom dish was excellent, the quail/bacon was drowned/lost in a spicy sauce, and the pork osso bucco was bland. Disappointing, again, especially for the price. 3) we were not offered dessert or coffee; is this standard? We felt we were being rushed to the door so you could turn the table. Again, might return, might not; would probably not recommend. Sorry. A disappointment.

I don’t typically give five stars to anything. But this is a true gem in Highlands, NC. The building is truly an old log cabin. It has a great, quiet ambiance. You feel like you’re in the mountains. The wine list is extremely reasonable with the most expensive bottle coming in at $110. Entrees are reasonable and include all the typical fare: tenderloin, a couple fish dishes, sone pastas. Something for everyone. This isn’t a super fancy and snooty place. It’s a relaxed, mountain atmosphere with waiters who chat with you like you’re an old friend. It’s my new fav restaurant in Highlands.

I came for my niece’s wedding the evening before and wanted a place to have dinner with my sisters and nieces and nephew before flying back home. Our waitress was amazing. Great recommendations on wine choices and menu items. I love that the menu was not so overwhelming. The food was unbelievable. Chef really knows his sauces. Beautiful restaurant. Would love to go again!!!

Heard nothing but amazing things about The Log Cabin so of course my husband and I had to try it out. We were in town for our babymoon and had such a wonderful experience around town. The waitress we had was absolutely terrible she was so rude tossed our plates on the table that my food literally fell off onto the table rushed us in and out had to ask for refills on our drinks and picked our plates up before asking if we were finished eating. All the other tables around us had very personable waitress and seemed so sweet. Guess we just her on a bad night.

We’ve eaten at Log Cabin a number of times but tonight our experience was less than satisfactory. First, we ordered wine and were later told that wine wasn’t available but, for slightly more, we were given a different bottle of wine. Strangely, this has happened to us before at Log Cabin. Then we ordered a basket of focaccia bread that we never got. To top it off, my husband ordered the fettuccine that the waiter recommended (with pheasant) but they brought him something entirely different (with pheasant too but not what he ordered).

We were disappointed that we did not get reservations at the restaurant where we were staying, but they recommended we try The Log Cabin. What a nice surprise! The setting was perfect and our food was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. We had the butternut squash ravioli and the antelope chop. Both were incredible. We will definitely return to the Log Cabin.

Had 7:00 reservations and arrived on time. Waited over 5 minutes before someone showed at the host/hostess desk. Plenty of servers had seen us waiting. By this time two more couples arrived behind us. After taking our name, the host asked us to step to the side and asked the other couples their names. They both had 7:30 reservations, and wanted to get a drink. No bar but the host handed them a wine list and proceeded to play around on the computer. Meanwhile, we are standing off to the side. He then takes their drink orders and enters into the computer. Finally, looks over at us and asks us our name again. 7:15 and we finally get seated with numerous empty tables in the restaurant. Our server Heidi was good but inexperienced. The food was overpriced and nothing special. The bottle of wine was the highlight. Probably not visiting the Log Cabin again.
