“Fisherman's bar with an attitude”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

A lively bar when the fishermen are in town, a favorite with locals, Charlie Sheen dropped in for drinks and a good time one night this summer.

“Gritty Fishing Bar”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

I have no problem with the bars the locals frequent, and this place is simply known as the "P" Bar, is legendary. They're not particularly friendly or talkative, so don't expect a TGI Fridays when you come in here for a drink. But the local history is all over the walls here, as probably every boat that has sailed out of Sitka's harbor may be up on the walls.

“Where Long John Silver must have come for a drink..”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

The Pioneer Bar, is a place unto itself, been here for years, and I think every sea captain that has ever landed in Sitka, over the last 50 years, has come in for a pint of Ale.. this place is steeped in history, and has the ambience, and photos to prove it...truly a one of a kind experience

“Fun and Friendly”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

One of the better bars in town. If you don't mind seeing dirty fisherman then this is the place for you. Weekends the younger crowd shows up but is the most packed place on the weekends! Pool, music and great service. They have good munchies too! It is really cool to see all the pictures of fishing vessels all over the walls too from almost every year. Go check it out!
