History

Foti Rigopoulos (Frank) was born in Kalamata on the southern tip of Greece. (Kalamata is the number one olive oil region in Greece.)When Frankie turned 17 years old, he came to Ellis Island, America. The boat ride to America lasted three weeks.

The year was 1954 and Frankie started work as a dish washer in his uncle’s Chicago restaurant.

As he earned money from this job, he would save it and send it back to his family in Greece. Eventually, his family was able to join him in America.

Frank soon opened his own restaurant in Dekalb, Illinois. It was called Sea Breeze.

Frankie moved to Galena in 1975 and purchased the Log Cabin.

He has two sons, Dino and Sam. They are both named after their grandfathers.

Dear Family & Friends,
 
In light of the circumstances regarding COVID-19, the latest IL Government mandate, and the fluid nature of the situation, we will temporarily close all Family locations for dine-in service effective tonight , March 16, 2020 at 9pm.
 
We will, however, still offer carry-out, curbside pick-up, and delivery from both the Log Cabin Steakhouse and Gobbie's Sports Pub and Eatery. With more details in the near future. Things are changing so fast we don’t want to get ahead of anything we can’t control.
 
We're in the process of contacting all reservations and are happy to arrange your order for pick-up or delivery.
 
We appreciate your support and loyalty and encourage everyone to follow CDC guidelines to keep our community safe and healthy.
 
We will continue to keep you updated on our social media pages. If you would like to reach out directly, please email logcabingalena@yahoo.com or gobbiesgalena@gmail.com
