Dined with a large group and saw folks enjoy the pulled pork sandwich, the halibut tacos, the fish and chips, the vegetarian wraps and the salmon sandwich. Everyone raved about their meals and a common theme was the waffle fries...thick and yummy. I had the halibut fish and chips...hands down the best I've ever had in the whole world. You... More

Great atmosphere with the whole of the structure slanted and racks, hides and gear adornments every where. Our server Chris was very affable and there are entertainment offerings most nights it appears during the season. For the food rundown: elk sliders -really good, buffalo chilli, exceptional! King crab legs moist and flavorful, cooked perfectly - best yet in Alaska. Chopped... More

This place has atmosphere, from the crooked stairs and front porch to the first floor restaurant and up to the second floor bar and dining area, you gotta check this place out. The food is very food and plentiful, the staff is nice and you can watch sporting events on the second floor

I ordered ordered the grilled salmon and it was fantastic. Great flavor and very nicely prepared. My wife ordered the Halibut, and even though she rarely orders fish, she was very happy with her selection. In addition, the service was excellent.

We have enjoyed a lot of restaurants but never have I seen food leave the kitchen, well prepared, in such a rapid rate. The wait staff all supported each other in clearing dishes, making sure the water glasses were full, etc. Our waitress, Stepheni, was awesome! She had a great attitude and was very attentive to our needs even though... More

At first I was skeptical since from the outside it seemed so-so... the inside of the place is very original (which I liked alot) The place has character and the employees are nice and service is excellent. The food blew me away and I would say I would return as would others that were with me.

This is a good place for a quick bite. It was rather warm upstairs, due to little to no air circulation. I had the grilled crab and cheese sandwich. It was very good. It came with a cup of their seafood chowder, also very tasty. This place is not fancy, but the service was good and the food was great.

The hotel does not tell you about the restaurants across the street. We went over and stumbled upon the Salmon Bake. The food was great and price is reasonable. The décor is funky and there is a fireplace which was nice on our rainy day. We actually went there two nights in a row. As the hotel restaurants were expensive... More

We had a great server at this place. She was so friendly and gave us some good tips. A manager also stopped by and told us some funny stories. Had a few drinks and some dinner. Salmon was fantastic and so was the chili. Great place to stop in!!
