Lamb chops perfect with a different mint jelly, beets and quinoa. Carrot cake was hit with butter pecan ice cream -- perfect! Crab cake appetizers to die for. Perfect birthday

I had eaten at Karl's Cabin about 5 years ago and while the decor was super the food left me unimpressed. I made a return visit with my family this week as my mom insisted this restaurant to celebrate her birthday. I have to admit that I wasn't overly excited to go but my experience changed my mind. The food... More

My family has been going to Karl's for years. They must have changed their chef a while back because the food is much better. To pay for that chef, they raised their prices which were already somewhat high. It's A nice place, log cabin atmosphere good service.

The food is pretty good, the servers are nice. Dueling pianos are wonderful. Besides all I mentioned, it is an older crowd. Sad seeing adults bring young children to the dueling pianos. It ruins it for the rest of us who want to let our hair down, and get crazy with the songs in an Adult atmosphere!!!

Thanks for the feedback. We generally do not recommend that parents bring their children to Dueling Pianos shows. We do not see this often. We most definitely want you to you to let your hair down and get crazy at the shows! :) Have a great day! More

Recently had a retirement party here with 100 guests. The private room was perfect for this size of a party and the atmosphere was just what I wanted. We selected buffet style serving and the BBQ meal selection. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. The staff that waited on us (Stacy, Alana and Annie) did such a good... More

There were about 18 of us for dinner. The service was great, atmosphere was fun and would try it again sometime. The meals were pretty good with the exception of the double patty lamb burger. First off it could never qualify as a burger. The two little patties were wafer thin and so overcooked they were tough to eat. Definitely... More

We were here with the group sometime back. The food was great the service was great. So we went in today for lunch. We sat on the patio. It was amazing to see how many waitstaff did not want to wait on us. Finally the manager walked by and decided to ask us if we'd like drinks. Shortly there after... More

We really like the feel of K's C. Good food and friendly service help sell it too. It is kinda out away from everything, but sometimes that can be a good thing. It does get busy so there's an occasional wait, but that just gives you time to take it all in.
