The Log Cabin is a breakfast and lunch restaurant. I stopped in today with my wife, my son, and my granddaughter. Our server Noelle really contributed to a great meal. She was pleasant, helpful, and extremely accommodating. All of our meals were a treat. The...More

Why is there a line? Because it's so good. How to make your wait easier? Call ahead, put in your name, AND THEN BE THERE ON TIME! Come 5 minutes before they tell you to come (just in case) and then be prepared to wait...More

We stopped here for lunch one and ice cream another. The lunch (we had breakfast food) was delicious and filling. The muffin of the day was banana chocolate chip and it was so good! The outdoor seating is nice, off the road a bit and...More

Don't understand why the lines are so long at the ice cream shop. The ice cream is only average. Won't stand in line again

We have been here several times over the years. It seems to be declining. Our meals today were good, not great. The corned beef hash was food service, not made on site (to be fair, they don't advertise homemade for that item). Waffles were fine...More

I had the biscuits and gravy - comes with potatoes and eggs your way. The sausage comes on the side which still tasted great. Coffee was good. We split a pancake - yum! So hard to find great pancakes. This was kind of Swedish style...More

Had a good breakfast. Locks and cream cheese on a behalf and corn beef and hash. Both were good. A little spendy but that's what you get for going to the best breakfast on kings beach. I would recommend unless you are on a budget.

Our third visit was as enjoyable as the others. Although they don't take reservations, our wait was not too long. We all had different meals and they all were very good. The Tuscan omelet was especially easy. The service is fast, friendly, and very patient...More

Everything was excellent! Easy to find. We had a late breakfast at 1pm on Friday June 9, 2016. There was no wait, but in a couple weeks I bet there'll be a line all the time for Log Cabin. And probably worth the wait, unless...More

Had to ask my wife, as she had the pancakes. She thinks they were not sweet, till she put on syrup. It was all very good as it should be at $75 for three to have breakfast on the lake shore, though we should have been... More
