    Very pleasant experience. The staff were all very professional and attentive. The food was exquisite. There were four us and we each had a different entree. Everyone loved their meals. The steaks were perfectly cooked. The desserts were delicious. It was very nice that they have a selection of mini desserts, too. We will definitely return !!

    An anniversary celebration brought us here. We were in the area and I wanted something extra special instead of just local fare, the Log Cabin did not disappoint. The place was lovely and everyone was so nice and made us feel so welcome. The little flower vase was a nice touch too for our table. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants to feel special.

    Recommendation from our Air B&B host for an anniversary dinner. They were spot on! Amazing food, live acoustic music, intimate cozy setting, and loved being indulged with the histories of the place. Staff were so welcoming, happy, and you could tell were there to make sure evening was perfect for you.

    Went for my wife’s birthday. Four Filet Mignon, one cheeseburger. All four filet mignon were asked for medium well. Each was burnt and crusty on the outside and bloody. The cheeseburger was asked for well done and came out like a hockey puck. Took over an hour after appetizers were done to get main course. Very disappointed on this trip.

    Went for the first time to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The atmosphere was wonderful, quiet, very nice dinner music, rustic. The service was excellent. I did think it was very expensive but the food was good and presentation was very good. My husband had lamb and I had the blackened salmon. Both were excellent. I started with a bowl of French Onion soup. Although it was good, I have had better. Overall it was very nice but would limit it to only special occasions because of the costs.

    We always enjoy our Log Cabin dining experience. The lemon pepper calamari is a good way to start with mildly spicy red pepper sauce and chimichurri sauce. The crackling pork ossobuco signature entree was outstanding. Everything was superb. This is a good place to go for special occasions.

    I called to make a reservation for a special occasion found out from the recording that I had to make the reservation on line. I wanted to request a booth but there was no option to do that. I called and left a VM to return my call so I could request the booth, but no one returned the call. When we arrived, I was told that all the booths were reserved and they set us in a back room at a table for two so that we were four feet apart and made it hard to have a conversation. I asked to have another table where we could sit next each other and they said they were all reserved. Not sure how Others reserved them since I did not see that option on the website. There were plenty of empty tables when we left. I have been going to the Log Cabin for over 40 years and nothing is the same. I miss getting the fresh salad and baked potato with the meal which either no longer is available or only for an extra charge. We were celebrating seven years since we met and you used to get something like a free desert for special occasions. We were not even offered the Small flower arrangement that other tables got. Higher prices and smaller portions!!!

    Amazing service and ambience. Jay was attentive and the chef was accomodating. While prepared for fine dining prices, I still opted out of the $12 French onion and went for the $25 Washington State oysters on the half. I made the right choice for sure!

    We are New Yorkers so we are very picky about food. Log Cabin was so delicious and filling. Our waiter was outstanding. Very profesional and made sure we were okay. I had the Lamb rack chops, medium rare and they were so tasty. My bf had the osso buco and he said that was the biggest and meatiest osso buco he’s ever ordered. I’ll def come back here during another visit to Pennsylvania.
