We have eaten here 4 times in the last few months, always the same superior quality food. This is a must go for anyone for that special occasion or if you just want a perfect steak. This will be a monthly visit for us for birthdays and when entertaining family from out of town. Exceptional!

The Log Cabin is very attractive on the inside, and has a nice looking outdoor space that we didn't use. Our carpaccio appetizer and the Osso Buco were both terrific. The bisque was very tasty, but a but a bit too brown. Although very slightly overcooked per my order, the aged prime rib was delicious. The service was excellent, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will return.

I really want to love this restaurant as it is the most special location and property around this area. However they have overpriced the experience with a $50 pork chop that was 30% fat and small. $8 beer, $14 a glass wine etc. They need to improve the food quality or lower the price if they want to attract frequent dinning vs special occasion only.

The stars say it all. Charcuterie, escargot, crab cakes, salmon, scallops and muscles and sticky pudding all great! Welcomed table side by General Partner Kirk Liddell and wonderfully attended to by Adrian and the rest of the service staff. The Log Cabin continues to be one of the best in Lancaster County.

We had an outstanding dinner here Thursday night, May 27, 2021. We ate outside on the patio lawn. Truly stunning . The food, service, scenery were one of our favs of all time. We had eaten here 20 plus years ago and its better than ever. Will surely return next time we visit the Lancaster area. Thumbs up...

We have eaten at The Log Cabin a number of times. Never disappointed, and always excellent staff there to help. We dined outside on the patio, and it was lovely. Plan to return 2 more times before the end of the year arrives. We always bring friends, and they love it!

We arrived before our guests and were promptly seated. After traveling to the facility, it would have been nice if my wife and me were given water, or a chance to order from the bar. None was offered until well after our guests arrived - fortunately we were not Bedouins from the desert. After that, the service was good. My wife's lobster bisque was not competitive. My Caesar salad was drenched in dressing and overpopulated with (tasty and crunchy) croutons. Had I tried to eat them all, I would still be there. Perhaps do the dressing on the side, and share the croutons with the rest of the known world. Other than the not very cheesy tasting cheesecake, the desserts were fine. While I made pastas for George Perrier years ago, I am not a current pro. If I had to improve my game, I would talk to David Kane at the Golden Pheasant in Erwinna PA and John Barrett at the Black Bass in Lumberville PA (sister restaurants). Grant Ross runs their front ends. They are probably the best team on the east Coast, and I suspect they are happy to chat with fellow pros.

Cole, our waiter was worth the stop here. Amazing restaurant. Can’t wait to return. A little price at $38 for one crab cake at brunch but it was the best in memory!

As usual, the Log Cabin was great. The Bloody Mary's are excellent. The food is always well-prepared and the portions often require some to take home. The waitress was phenominal, knowledgeable and very polite. It is our go to for a nice meal. So glad they were able to remain open during the pandemic.

We love the Log Cabin Restaurant and the staff there. Everyone is friendly, efficient, helpful, and fun. The food is ALWAYS over the top and the atmosphere can't be beaten. The Log Cabin has been a favorite restaurant of ours for years. We had our first date there and have come back again and again for 35+ years. Highly recommend this jewel of a restaurant.

The food at The Log Cabin was delicious. I would say the sticky toffee pudding we had for dessert was phenomenal. The prices are high so I would say it is a special occasion restaurant. That being said, it is worth a visit for those occasions. The history of the restaurant is pretty cool too. It was a bit loud but unfortunately you can't do much about other diners that insist on yelling instead of talking at their table. We will be back. Thank you for a special evening.

Wonderful location in the woods. Lovely rustic ambience. Big, comfy lounge with a trio playing old-school jazz. Staff was very accommodating. The wine list is reasonably priced and the food (American, steak) was beautifully presented. The lamb chops were SO tender.

Went for a special birthday dinner for my wife. Superb attention to detail and a very nice card provided for the birthday celebrant signed by the entire staff. Absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared food (four guests with a different meal choice each). Service was perfect - not rushed, but attentive to when everyone had finished their course. Delicious and excellent choice of deserts. One of the managing partners stopped by our table to check on our satisfaction with everything and to welcome us to the Log Cabin. A wonderful all around experience.
