Food is good, historic building, fun atmosphere. Worth waiting in line. Had to convince them to let us have a beer at vacant deck table while waiting for table.

You can not book a reservation for a specific time at this place. Arrive early and give your name and number in your party to the host as soon as you arrive. You may be sitting outside in front of the restaurant from anywhere between 5 - 60 min, so bring some sort of "waiting game" or take a short stroll to the river bank and look in the little gift store that is down that way. This place is worth the wait! They have the best salmon in town. From what I know, they order it from local fishermen(woman) who catch it on the Taku river, and have it shipped for same day or next day delivery right to the kitchen.

It might be small (watch out for cruise ship crowds visiting Whitehorse) and on the expensive side but the food is worth it. Small patio, but if you can do sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere. Friendly staff and very quick service. The rib and salmon combo is simply delicious!

It's quicker to write about the bad things ... It's only open in the summer and the long line ups
The food here absolutely rocks here!

Well, when I traveled through in May as a tourist the restaurant was very busy with locals and not tourists. I received really good service, the food was good and the dessert was amazing!!! Yes, I did go witth the 1/2 rack BBQ ribs which I very rarely eat but it was delicious and it was served with this massive piece of corn bread which I only nibbled on. Was saving myself for dessert, bread pudding that took me to the moon and back.

Timing may be everything to not have to stand in line but I was not in this position and it was nice to be amongst locals rather than a tourist frenzy.
