Make Reservations On Our New Picnic Area


Dear Friends & Family,

We hope you are all healthy & well. Thank you again for your continued support through these difficult times. We have been working hard to open back up for regular dine-in business hours. We had two amazing "soft open" weekends to get ourselves back into the groove. We really learned a lot,  mostly we were able to increase safety and sanitizing measures for our staff and guests.

We are happy to announce we officially open Friday, July 10 for full 7 day a week lunch & dinner daily dine-in service. Our Patio, Dining Room, Bar, Banquet Room, Curbside & NEWLY remodeled Picnic Area are all safely available from the hours of 12-9 (subject to change). We highly recommend making reservations online using our NEW Resy App (here) or by calling 734-455-8450. Walk-ins are always welcomed.

Starting July 10 you will also be able to order carry out off our entire menu for pick up between Noon-9pm. We recommend using our NEW online ordering system (here) You can even schedule your pickup up time! We conveniently installed 7 new designated curbside parking spots and we'll be offering the same "dinner drive-thru-like" service you have enjoyed bringing your meals safely to your car with contactless to-go.

We want to thank everyone who supported us during the lock-down.  We are so grateful to have the best customers in Metro-Detroit.  We look forward to safely serving you again.

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 opened 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 you're 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.
