Roadhouse Roots

a close up of a sign

Driving along the rural roads of Salem Township you stumble upon a fully restored log cabin restaurant built in 1947. For over 70 years this storied "roadhouse" has brought joy to its guests offering heart-felt service, classic comfort style cuisine and lively entertainment even once a performance by the legendary Johnny Cash. 

Today, Karl's Cabin Restaurant in Plymouth, MI specializes in New American Comfort dining.   Local rustic cooking with a twist.  Our Chef's take great pride in creating seasonal menus using fresh locally sourced food with generous size portions.  Complimenting the menu is our bar.  We offer wines that pair with our food,  20 rotating local craft beers on draft and a cocktail list to suit the season.   Our staff, the heartbeat of our restaurant, will always greet you with a friendly smile and take the extra steps to WOW you.  Don't forget to check our entertainment calendar.  You'll always find live music like Dueling Pianos & The Dale Hicks Band or a fun dinner event to cure your cabin fever.  And if your looking for a Private Room we can help. 

Located minutes west of downtown Plymouth & just few miles east of Ann Arbor, "The Cabin" has proudly served families from all of Metro Detroit for decades.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
