Built in 1929, the original log cabin building that now houses the restaurant was constructed with oak logs from the surrounding Lehoy Forest on a site once occupied by the Nanticoke Indians. It started out as a speakeasy and has undergone a number of renovations since its early beginnings.
Just reading the menu is enough to motivate one to drive to Leola to try any one of The Log Cabin’s many mouth-watering dishes.
Known for providing great steaks and lobster, the restaurant continues its tradition of providing guests with upscale fare in a charming and historic setting. The Log Cabin specializes in local farm-to-table cuisine and is the perfect setting for any occasion.
Chef Steven Painter says the menus emphasize a variety of what he likes to call “polished casual” offerings. Seafood is more prevalent, but the dinner menu also offers the Cabin Burger, Meatloaf, PA Farm Raised Duck a L’Orange, fried chicken and more. The restaurant also has a children’s menu and vegetarian menu. Stay for after-dinner spirits and choose from a list of classic cocktails or view the expansive wine menu.
And, don’t forget the restaurant’s Sunday brunch, featuring anything from lobster tacos and smoked salmon with bagels to creamed chipped dry beef with buttermilk biscuits.
