We had a very enjoyable dinner. Everything was prepared perfectly from appetizer through desert. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and gave us a few recommendations.
We look forward to our next visit.
Thanks for a great night!

We've been here many times over the years for dinner but it was first time for brunch. We sat on the porch looking out over the gardens and it was so beautiful and peaceful. Our meals were outstanding - french onion soup, salmon omelet, and the to-die-for Lobster Benedict. Delicious coffee and great service for under $50.
Great experience and would definitely recommend to others.

* Beautiful, unique and most delicious and delightful dining experience. Very thoughtful and wide-ranging menu... makes you want to try everything! Servers very friendly and helpful. The Log Cabin is a lovely oasis ...just slightly off the beaten path and what a delight getting there. A historical gem that remains lovingly preserved and maintained. Highly recommend!

We had a reservation at 7:30 PM and had requested a table on the patio. The (older) hostess wanted to seat us right next to a very loud party of 12 - even though there were five other unoccupied tables on the patio. When I asked her if we could be seated at one of those other tables because an 80 year old member of our party was hard of hearing, she told me we either had to sit at that table or go inside. When I pointed out the other empty tables on the patio - three of which were not right next to the large, very loud party - the hostess responded rudely and impatiently, saying there were other reservations and tables had already been assigned. Finally a younger hostess intervened and told us of course we could be seated at another table on the patio. Once we were seated, I then asked the older hostess if she could turn the music down a bit (again to facilitate the hearing of the older member of our party) and she said no, she could not adjust the volume and left. People at the table next to ours heard this exchange and told us they, too, had been treated rudely by the same hostess when she tried to seat them at the same table where she tried to seat us (right next to the party of 12), and they, too, had requested a different table. How disappointing and upsetting to be greeted at your beautiful restaurant by such a rude and difficult hostess! Fortunately our server (Laurie) was wonderful - she turned the music down for us and provided excellent service all evening. The older hostess did return at one point to say she was sorry that she didn't know the volume of the music could be adjusted - but she did not apologize for her rude behavior. Please note: All but one of the four empty tables on the patio were still unoccupied when we left at 9:30.

The Log Cabin has become the #1 place for special occasions as well as those times when we want to feel pampered and appreciated while we enjoy great food prepared and served without being rushed.

Very nice setting. I haven’t been here in years. My server did an excellent job. A helper brought our cheese tray and normally they explain the different types of cheese, but she just set it down and left. We had to wait to ask our Server what types of cheese were on the plate.

We ordered the tiny desserts and none were really that tasty. They looked great.

The atmosphere of this place is wonderful. The service was excellent. Each part of our dinner was well spaced and we did not feel rushed in anyway. Our server was excellent. She was courteous, professional and engaged with our party of four nicely. The steak was out of this world! Some of us added the brussel sprouts vegetable and we highly recommend it to anyone who loves brussel sprouts.
Overall it was a wonderful dining experience and all four of us would highly recommend it to everyone.

Normally I would say yes, we have eaten there many times. This was unusual and disappointing. While my husband's steak was good, my Salmon Oscar was only warm by the time it got to the table. Service was slow and several items were mixed up. We asked for bread twice, were told fresh bread was coming out of the oven - definitely not 'fresh' bread. Asked for sparkling water, was given spring water. Never came back to ask if we would like a second glass of wine/cocktail. Baby iceburg salad was a wedge salad - please call it what it is. Asked for regular coffee, delivered decaf - at least they announced that before it was laid on the table and we were then given the correct beverage.

Noise level was high when we arrived. A half hour or so later the 'noisy table' departed, and so the noise level was very satisfactory. Service was excellent, as was the food we were served. Some prices are a bit high, but were to be expected considering the quality of the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant.

We had a large group and we were seated comfortably with plenty of space for everyone to enjoy themselves. The wait staff did a great job bringing out the course and not rushing us through the evening. The food was excellent and we all had a good time.

The noise level was quiet. The indicator deviated from the star system so it wasn’t clear if the larger block meant more noise or more satisfaction with the noise level.

Overall, it was an excellent experience in a quiet, relaxing setting with great ambiance.

One of the best dinners we have had in Lancaster. While, the chef is not recreating the wheel with the menu, the choices are carefully chosen and cover a good breadth. And, tho the food is not “cutting edge”, the ingredients are incredibly fresh, and prepared with considerable care. There are also nice touches such as roasted wild mushrooms that are not often found as a side dish.
Also, from our greeting at the door, through dinner service, the staff was very professional. The live piano music was an added bonus. Overall, a lovely, lovely meal.

My husband and I have been to the Log Cabin several times in the past year with outstanding dining experiences each time. Our most recent visit may have been the best yet, but that's a hard call to make.
Two people in our party ordered the filet mignon and raved about it throughout dinner and the whole way home. It was pronounced the best they have ever eaten. My husband got a muscle and scallop dish that was a true seafood masterpiece, and I had crabcakes loaded with lump crab and grilled to perfection. The lovely cheese tray appetizer and tasty desserts added depth to an already amazing culinary experience. We enjoyed a leisure dinner in a relaxing atmosphere with exemplary service. It's also worthy of note that the gentleman singing in the sitting room added a cozy familiar feeling to the dining ambiance.

Too fast. No chance to even enjoy our cocktails without a push to order.
I don't expect to have my entree on the table while my salad is still in play. If I want fast food there are a multitude of options at a far lesser cost.

This wasn’t our best trip to the Log Cabin. The food was fine but the steak didn’t compare to previous visits. The service was fine but again a little sub par. This time I don’t think it was worth the price.

The food and service was great. The location has a spectacular view and the patio sinning is romantic and spacious. The menu is creative with excellent innovative specials. The tavern has a great speciality drink selection and the old wine cellar offers a distinctive wine list. The restaurant has a fastenatingpast that must be explored on your visit.

Celebrated our anniversary at the Log Cabin and it was perfect! Reserved a patio table and enjoyed the beautiful summer gardens. Great service, outstanding food and a thoughtful bouquet. The Lobster Cobb Salad was fantastic as were our steak and crab cakes. Live music in the lounge was an unexpected bonus. Worth the expense for a special occasion.

A delightful place to celebrate as special occasion which we did this past weekend - July 27th. The atmosphere was quite charming in a rustic way and the wait staff, Landon, just the right amount of helpful attention. Food was beautifully presented and delicious.
