My husband ate at the Log Den on June 2. The chicken enchilada soup was salty but tasted good. The t-bone steaks arrived overcooked and dry with an almost moldy taste-butter would not melt on the steaks or the potatoes. We felt that the steaks had been cooked previously and warmed up for us. Veggies were not fresh. Waiter was sympathetic but did nothing. No manager on duty. We wrote to the restaurant afterward but have heard nothing back. We would never eat at this place again. Any restaurant can serve a bad meal but not caring is unforgiveable.
Place was very nice inside. Decorated log wood style, very open and fresh. I would consider this an upscale restaurant, fancier inside, but still appropriate to bring well behaved children. Everything we ate (pasta/steak) tasted good. The price on things seemed to vary from $15 for a pasta meal to $28 for a steak. Some of the items on the menu were rather expensive ($28-$35)
Stopped for lunch here yesterday, loved the decor, food was okay but after paying the bill I overheard our waiter saying to the next table that coleslaw was included in the lunches but neither my husband or myself got any. When I mentioned this to another employee he stated that the waiter was new. On the way out I asked if we could have a $4.99 souvenir glass and he rudely commented that the coleslaw only costs about 2 cents and everybody makes mistakes! I told him we would never eat there again.
My wife and I ate here while in town for our third anniversery. We were given a gift card to the Log Den and weren't really sure what to expect. The ext/int of the restaruant were amazing. The place was very woodsy, yet classy, and cleanliness was outstanding. I walked into the restroom after eating and it was even so clean that I could have taken a nap on the floor.
Now, the food... My wife and I love going out for fine dining, and both agreed that the food was the best we have had in a long time. I can only think of one restaruant where the food created so much conversation. I had the Wisconsin Walleye (with Bacon/mushroom topping) / Veggies / and twice baked potato. My wife had one of their specials for the night; Bacon wrapped Fillet topped with spinach artichoke cream cheese, veggies, and twice baked potato. With each entre we also got the 'grand salad and soup bar.' The salad/soup bar was great, everything that I put on my plate was amazing. And the prices were very fair (about $20 per entree) considering the quality of the food, and the amount that you get ith the soup/salad bar.
Now, the service.. Our waitress was very nice, very knowledgable, and depsite the restaruant starting to fill up with large parties, gave us plenty of attention. Overall, this was a great stop that is highly recommended.
