Great View

The view of the port while you eat is the highlight of this restaurant. The server was very friendly but service was slow. The food was good.

Evangelina the bartender was awesome! Loved hanging out at the bar with her swapping stories. Chowder was really good too!

Today, 8/27/15 We arrived in Haines Alaska in cold wet weather. After settling in we decided to order food to go. We ordered two orders of fish and chips to go. When my husband picked it up the bill was $53.00. Each order consisted of 5 small pieces of fish a handful of fries, and a small plastic container of... More

First night in Haines we decided to eat here. This place is too big for their small kitchen. We waited for 30 minutes plus. Food was good. Had the salmon and chips which was 5 large pieces. Atmosphere has lots of history with a sterile feel.

The food was terrible. My blackened "local" red snapper sandwich was a tiny bit of shredded old fish --- very fishy. Husbands halibut was greasy and the fries were the awful frozen ones. Menu said there was tomato on the sandwich an it was not there. Very slow. Service was terrible. Never asked if we wanted more water or tea... More

The view should be good, but we were seated facing the parking lot and so it wasn't the best. Naturally we ran into the few times 'the bus'; that is the tour bus let off. Too many customers for them - not only the cook, but also the wait staff to handle. The food might have been better if it... More

Not too many restaurants from which to choose in Haines. The view here is wonderful- right overlooking the water, marina and mountains. The menu was not very interesting. The fried chicken was good and not at all greasy. My husband had the halibut; it was good but could have been better. While not inexpensive, it was one of the cheaper... More

The inside is a bit dated; however the food was great and so was the view of the harbor. I had the best Calamari I have ever had at this restaurant. Big pieces that looked like fish sticks. Good thing they provide a large serving or my boyfriend and I would have fought over them!

Very disorganized service, hot and stuffy atmosphere and disappointing food --vegetables with bland salmon were half cooked/half raw. Embarrassed that we brought family here. For better (and cheaper) fish and chips try the Halsingland.

Lousy service, terrible attitude, this is not the way to run a seasonal business! It was a little after 11AM, not busy we were the only people there and we ordered a ice tea and water. She returned and we still had not made a choice so she said she would be right back, 45 minutes later she returned .... More
