We've never had a bad meal here and return every time we're in Galena! The steaks are delicious, the atmosphere/ambience just right and the wait staff is excellent! The menu is large so if you're not in the mood for a good steak, there are seafood, chicken and pasta dinners. We highly recommend Log Cabin!

The food was good but the lighting is very poor, hard to see ur food, no windows. I felt ignored by our server, she knew the people at the next table so she spent time w/them rather than checking on us after we started eating our food. We won't be back to this restaurant.

We dined here tonight to wrap up our trip in Galena. This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker and we were really looking forward to our dinner. The atmosphere was cozy but a little dark.

I had the filet mignon with fried shrimp and baked potato. The steak was cooked correctly and was tender, but there was no seasoning on it so it was boring. The shrimp were excellent. The potato was your normal baked potato, but the sour cream was not sour cream. It was some kind of fake knock off. That ruined the... More

We arrived with no reservation but only had a 15 minute wait. Very friendly staff and excellent food. Our waiter (Chad) was helpful in making the right choices and was very polite and friendly. Would definately go back! Prices are reasonable.

This place was recommended by our Innkeeper. In fact, he was at the table next to us when we arrived later that evening. Ask for the Greek seasoning on your steak. You can also ask for your preferred cut to be served boneless as well. The Greek potatoes are thin cut and were delicious. Also had a salad with homemade... More

We were reluctant to try a steak house in Galena, but I think this place had the best steak I have ever eaten.
