We were staying up the road a bit. Stopped in for a bite to eat and was not disappointed. Ended up returning for breakfast. Again very good. Great drop in place for travelers and locals.

This is the same restaurant as the Fireweed Grill. Very poor service even though there were only a few customers. Waitress too busy chatting with cook to bring utensils or offer more coffee. Pricey for what you get. Would not stop here again

Location just outside the Caribou hotel and the lovely gift shop. That's easy, especially as Glennallen is more a stop over place. Inviting big room, well decorated. On the menu card are only a few items but the plates are large and delicious. Quick service....More

Good food, slow, but great service. New ownership and management, improving rapidly. Very nice people, very good food, slow service, but it was a very busy dinner hour. Very accommodating and kind. New management. Great gift shop next door.

We stopped here mainly for a coffee and a break on the journey down to Valdez and then again on the way back to Anchorage. It was the first decent looking place we came across and actually ate here twice. The service was rather slow...More
