We had an amazing time here, the prices were great. There was an abundant quantity of food that was really good. The service was excellent. Best of all there was this really cute little gift shop attached to the restaurant, so convenient.

We stopped here for breakfast after seeing the sunrise from Cadillac mountain. The place looks nice but the waitresses seemed like they didn't want to bother with us. It took a while to get our food and it was just ok. My friends got up several times to get their own refills. It didn't appear to be that busy. Was... More

The Log Cabin was right down the road from our motel (which doesn't serve breakfast), so we ate breakfast every morning at the Log Cabin. Reasonable prices, good food. We had scrambled eggs & bacon each morning, and it was served with either toast or a delicious, warm, homemade blueberry muffin. The most expensive breakfast item was the lobster omelet... More

Found this on the way back from Acadia. We were seated promptly and were looking for a non-seafood lunch as we were "sea fooded out"! So chicken tenders and a burger it was. Nothing special but well prepared and tasty, and very good fries.

On our last night in Bar Harbor, we went to the Log Cabin Restaurant out on Hwy 3 (north?) of Bar Harbor. We had been there many years ago, and remembered it as a good restaurant. I ordered one of the specials, broiled scallops and haddock (which I seem to remember was in the $22.00 range). The salad that came... More

We stopped in here for lunch after visiting Acadia and had a good lunch. We enjoyed the open face pot roast which was the special of the day. Lunch was good but service was a bit slow, took a while to get refills on our drinks. However, we still enjoyed our lunch.

We stopped here on the way to Bar Harbor, not much still open in October. Nice little place, we just ordered burgers and they had a great flavor. First problem was we ordered one medium rare and got it well done. When we pointed it out to the server he said well I didn't cook it. Then asked how long... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed it. Portions were fairly large and my wife and I actually shared a dish. They also have battered onion rings that were very good.

We went to this restaurant because we couldn't get into the lobster pound. My meal was very good. The haddock was very fresh and the french fries were good also. They were in the process of closing down for the winter so some items weren't available. I asked for a wine that I like and they did have it.

On the way to our hotel, we saw this restaurant and decided we would stop by for dinner after we checked in. The place was pretty big and had friendly staff. The food was good and they gave you plenty of it. After you eat, you can visit the attached store to pick up a few things. If you do... More

TEMPORARILY CLOSED - The Log Cabin Restaurant is a wonderful family owned Seafood & Steak restaurant that has been in continuous operation since 1984. The original owners who built the restaurant are now back and running the family operation. Great for families and large groups. Our dining rooms offer a very comfortable Maine experience with a classic Maine décor. We also have an absolutely wonderful Country Store filled with products made in Maine and New England. We hope you come to visit and dine with us. Greetings from the entire Hansen Family!
