I make an annual pilgrimage to Log Haven for my birthday dinner because it is always, always the best. The ambiance is calm and lovely and the scenery gorgeous with the snow covered trees and icicles. Excellent wine list.

Log Haven is cozily nestled in the trees of Millcreek Canyon just east of Salt Lake City. It offers a quiet, intimate atmosphere and excellent food. The service is friendly and we didn't feel rushed or 'processed.' A hidden gem; highly recommended.
