I had a takeaway so I cannot really comment on the table service. The takeaway service is really friendly and quick. They found out that I'm sharing my breakfast burrito with the son and offered to cut it into half and wrap it separately. The burrito is really great, my son loved it, and finished up all of his half... More

My family and I were walking around town (not super big) and stumbled upon this place....it smelled fantastic so I had to stop and get a "snack". Holly Molly what great breakfast sandwich. The best I have eaten...stop what you are doing and eat there.

Love this place on the small boat harbor in Valdez. Firstly, it opens very early at 5am and is located near all the activities. I had a kayaking trip early in the morning, and there were actually very few places that were open. Secondly, the food was great - not only was the Potatohead Burrito I ordered for breakfast great,... More

Our group of six stopped here while in the area for a cruise ship stop. One in our group has to eat gluten free so we thought we would give it a try based on trip advisor reviews. Some in our group really liked it and others thought it was only ok. The veggie wrap was quite good as was... More

I ate food from here on two occasions this week. The breakfast burritos are big. I wasn't able to put together the right combo for me to make me want to come back. The first time I got the Potato Head plain. I thought it came with meat of some kind. No thats extra charge. The next time I ordered... More

This is a small place with patio seating and a great view. There are also a few tables inside. We had smoked pork hoagies, and they were very good. Hoagie rolls were very fresh and sandwich was topped with a horseradish slaw. Fries are fabulous! Everything was homemade and fresh, nothing from the freezer here. It was crowded and looked... More

What better way to start an adventurous day than a bowl of delicious fries, cheesy eggs and chili. Fuel for an adventure for sure. This charming, casual spot features a walk up window beside a deck with cheery flowers and a small room with large windows overlooking the harbor. The service was warm and friendly. The menu featured many tasty... More

I want one of these in NY!!! Food was fantastic. You must, must, must have the Spudnicks Supreme. I foolishly waited until the last day to try it and have been craving it ever since. Breakfast, lunch, dinner terrific offerings.

The food here is very good, nothing special, just really good wholesome food. The curly chips however, are not your usual chips, not sure what they do to them, but they are really good.
