This is a nice spot to sit and people watch while enjoying good food. With plenty of shopping, all within walking distance, you will not forget Talkeetna.

Great burgers and sandwiches. Relaxed atmosphere and family friendly. Great selection of beers on tap. Definitely a great stop after an adventurous day in Talkeetna. Home of the Talkeetna Mayor!

Food is very good, as is the service. There was a major renovation since our last visit, and it greatly improved the place.
