We must have had an off night, given all the positive reviews. Walking in downstairs, it immediately smelled like gas. Using the women's restroom, there was a restroom attendant, always a nice touch, but the restroom was poorly maintained and in disrepair. The service was very slow, which would be tolerable if at any point the server has stopped to check on our appetizer or entrees. We got the garlic shrimp as an appetizer, priced at $10, for 5 pieces of what appeared to be previously frozen shrimp, unseasoned, and slapped on a piece of soggy toast with a very odd sauce. It was surprisingly bad!
Burgers were good, meat was quality, both overcooked but tolerable. We've both had better burgers at other establishments, but wanted to say something nice.
To repeat, service was horrible and atmosphere was simply weird. We're both late 20 professionals who appreciate good food at both dive bars and high end places, so this review is openminded, but also simply we were shocked at how horrid everything was.

I love going out to eat at Pals Cabin Restaurant. It is a great place for family and friends to meet up and enjoy a delicious meal together. My family always meets our friends from Oregon here when they come to visit, and we also throw many family parties in one of their designated party rooms.

I grew up going to Pals. It's been around forever. If you have never been there I highly recommend you check it out. Get the famous mushroom soup and double salad bowl (I like the blue cheese dressing). Great burgers, steaks and cabin like atmosphere! My husband and I do not go as much since we moved to Bloomingdale and had kids but we plan to make a stop soon! I miss it! The prices are fair if you stick to the burgers, soup, salads, etc. Entrees are pricey to me but I usually don't get them anyway. They have a Winchester room which is for the more dressed up dining experience or I recommend having dinner in the main dining cabin area--more relaxed and cozy. Just wait till you smell the charcol burgers and steaks when you park the car!!! Yumm!!

Just left Pals cabin the food was no better the a fair resturant! The service was the worst I have ever incountered. We waited 20 minutes to be seated even though there were open tables all over. It seamed the Manager was busy chatting in the back or at least that is where my wife found hin when she went looking for someone to seat us. It seams the waitress must have been doing the same since we had to ask the bus boys to get her 3 times for simple things like coffee and codiments. There cold brew coffee was also less the enjoyable ( must be cold brew cause we couldn't get hot coffee). When near West orange check out the Mcdonalds you'll have a better shot and I know the coffee is hot.

Cons: Finding the dooor unlocked
