The experience is so quaint and enjoyable. A sunday dinner for the six of us was amazing, and the food was deliciously cooked to order. Very fresh and flavorful. Nice attention by the waitstaff, who were exceptionally pleasant.

A cozy little place with delicious dishes. I had the summer plate of crabcakes on fried green tomatoes on a corn relish. Fresh and delicious! Our server was attentive and eager to help.

No kidding, this is my favorite restaurant in the DC area; food is DELICIOUS (maple glazed, cedar planked salmon topped with lump crab - you will thank me), the cocktails are the best I've ever had at a restaurant (their originals are amazing), and the atmosphere is tops - quiet, cozy, extremely friendly. This is always my pick for a... More

Great atmosphere, excellent food, and fantastic service. The mushroom caps (mushrooms stuffed with crab imperial) were perfect. The seafood was well prepared across the appetizers and the entrees. Worth every penny and won't disappoint.

The Log Cabin is one of those special places for great food, service and an ambiance that fits well with family gatherings and even for a romantic setting; especially near the fireplace area. On each of our trips through Virginia we make it a point to dine there. We have yet to be disappointed.

The staff here is exceptional. They handled our large group with no issues, even splitting checks as necessary. Many raved about the crab. I had the filet and it was perfectly cooked. The waitstaff was present without hovering and super attentive. The only complaint was the smoke smell from the fireplace. Overwhelming and my clothes still stink today from it.... More

My wife and I go to this restaurant for our wedding anniversary each year. The Log Cabin is a great place for a quiet/romantic meal. They have a large wood burning fireplace that gives the restaurant a lot of character. We always ask for the table in front of the fireplace. They are known for having great lobster and steak....
