    Tina was amazing. Her service was great! The food was good and the variety of choices mapped to everyone's preferences and food issues. Before the meal was completed, half of the group already had decided to come back.

    Loved the decor. Very comfortable but not very accommodating to people with food allergies. I asked for a sauce on the side and she served it on the dinner but instead of having the cook fix it she told me to scrap it off. Seriously? The bread was hard and when we didn’t order a second drink the waitress lost interest in us. The food was sub pare for the price point

    Fist time dining at the log cabin and we went for my birthday. The drive to the restaurant is beautiful and the interior of the restaurant is very quaint. The service is wonderful, as everyone was very attentive to our needs. When we sat down they informed us that they thought it was my wife’s birthday so they set out flowers instead of jerky, which is what they do for gentlemen’s birthdays. We ordered an open faced salmon appetizer which was average at best, lacked flavor and the bread was too thick. We shared a blue coat mocktail since my wife is pregnant and it was amazing. We planned to order another one but they informed us that they were out of blueberry syrup, which is odd for early service in a Thursday evening. Then we ordered our entrees, my wife got a mussel and scallop dish which she says was the best she’s ever had. I ordered a Cesar salad, which was wonderful, and a 16 oz dry aged ribeye that came with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley. Aside from the mashed potatoes I was very disappointed with my meal. The vegetables did not seem cooked all the way and again flavor was bland. Now to the steak, it was cooked temperature wise perfectly (medium rare) but that’s about all I can say. It wasn’t trimmed well, the ends were charred too much, and it lacked the juiciness of a hot steak. Normally with a good steak no sauce is needed, but I found myself trying to mop up the conservative portion of steak sauce that it was served with. We opted not to get dessert since we had to get home to our child, but I don’t imagine I would’ve been blown away. When our server brought the check she once again reminded us that if they knew it was my birthday that they would’ve set out jerky instead of flowers. To conclude, we might return here in the future but my expectations were not met. I’m glad my wife enjoyed the meal.

    My wife and I were celebrating our 13th anniversary. We were created with a coat check and lead to our table. They had a card on the table recognizing our anniversary and a small flower vase with flowers to take with us. I had ordered the rib eye steak and my wife could lamb chops. The food was excellent. We will be going back again and again and again.

    Another great meal at the Log Cabin. Ambience was excellent as seated near the fireplace and plenty of room between tables so not a lot of noise from other parties. Menu continues to offer good variety of selections. Our group had the salmon, seafood platter and the pork osso bucco. All of our meals were excellent and we will be back again soon. .

    We were there to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary and they put a little sign on our table with flowers. Our server was very friendly and gave us good input on what menu items we would enjoy and what her favorites were. Our entire meal from start to finish was delicious. Highly recommend and we will be sure to come back. We enjoyed a very memorable dinner celebration date night.

    My wife had told me many times about the Log Cabin, but we'd not been able to get there before the original closed down. Last night, for her 70th birthday, I surprised her with our reservation. Wow! You guys scored me points toward a Husband of the Century award! When we arrived, we were greeted by two women—one's name might have been Lisa?—whose beautiful smiles showed us we were welcome. The atmosphere was great, and our server, Edwin, was top notch. He was very personable and attentive without being intrusive. The meal was incredible! Deb and I both ordered the seared sea scallops with mussels, and Chef Painter and his kitchen staff made them to perfection. The desserts were likewise wonderful. My wife ordered the vanilla bean crème brûlée, which she described as "excellent"; I chose my favorite, New York cheesecake, which was probably the best I ever tasted. Thank you for a very enjoyable, unforgettable evening.

    We were warmly greeted as soon as we walked in the door. We were early for our reservation but were able to be seated right away. The restaurant is beautiful, full of character and interesting items throughout its many rooms. Soon after being seated, our server introduced himself, told us a bit more about the restaurant and answered any questions we had. He was attentive throughout the evening and provided excellent information about the menu. Our cocktails were outstanding and a great way to kick off our evening. The food which followed was equally good. We had soup, small plates, our entrees and then a couple of small desserts, which is an excellent feature when you want something sweet but not a full portion. The meal was very well-paced. We neither felt rushed nor like we were waiting for the next course. As we retrieved our coats, the hostess happily answered some questions we had about the history of the establishment and told us about some of the special events (music, themed dinners) that were offered. We will definitely be back.

    We've been coming here for years and this visit did not disappoint, as usual. We always start with a cocktail at the bar. I had the Cabin in the Woods and my wife had an espresso martini. Both were excellent. The bar tenders are super friendly and the drinks are imaginative. After cocktails, we moved into the main dining room by the fire place. I was happy to see the Christmas decorations were still up. I had the chicken for the first time, and my wife had the filet mignon. I asked the waiter what part of the chick was in this entree. I was happy to hear when he told me it was a leg and thigh because I prefer the moistness of dark meat. I was a little nervous when dinner arrived, it was a breast with wing attached as chicken breast is so often dry. This entree was not. It was the juiciest, moistest chicken breast I've ever had. I don't usually order chicken but I will again for sure at the Log Cabin. My wife loved her filet and took half of it home with her. We passed on dessert. After dinner, what has been our favorite part of visiting the Log Cabin in recent years, is retiring to the parlor for a nightcap and to enjoy the live music. This time it was the Tuck Ryan band and they were outstanding. A great mix of music including some great 70s pop which, at 55 years of age, I remember well. All in all it was another perfect experience at the Log Cabin. They continue to get busier and busier and reservations are required further in advance every time, but it is so worth it. We'll no doubt be back time and time again.

    We have not been to The Log Cabin in over a decade. Many friends had been encouraging us to "try it again." We finally did and were not disappointed. The venue is just as charming as always (though spiffed up a bit) and the food and service were back at the level we enjoyed in the 90's! Owner Kirk Liddell made a point of visiting each table to not only insure we were happy but also gave time for a nice chat about his vision for the project. There are signs of graciousness all about the restaurant - from the coat check at the front door to the well-dressed servers who did not remove any plates until all at the table had finished. A lovely return to a wonderful spot!
