Every time a get somewhere close to the ocean, I have to try some of the local chowder. The seafood chowder here rates up there but it was just wasn't creamy enough to make it into the top five. The rest of the food was good, flavourful and fresh, especially the salad, and the beers we had were local (... More

We had a really good experience in this restaurant and a really bad one too... Good food, service is sometimes odd, but overall is not a bad place in a town with limited options.

We ate at this restaurant at the same time as a small tour group arrived and perhaps that effected our experience. We ordered the fish chowder. Mine was all white liquid with not a single piece of seafood. My wife got one tiny piece of seafood and she felt like she won the Lighthouse fish chowder lottery. We also ordered... More

we had very good service, but the kitchen was a bit slow. The food was fresh and tasty. I would return.

This restaurant has a nice view of the harbor if you get a table near one of the small windows. Food was fine, but nothing special or exciting. The best part of the meal was the small side salad that came with the meal - it had cranberry bits in it and a lovely cranberry vinaigrette dressing. The house wine... More

The taste of the food was OK, but the serving was quite small (I'm European; when we say "small serving" this means "tiny" by American standards :)) and the service was bad. I wouldn't go there anymore.

I guess it all depends on the day? We ate lunch here during busy lunch time. We both had the Salmon pita and Alaskan Amber. The food was great and so was the beer. They were not stingy with the salmon and the pita was done just right. The Alaskan was on tap. The pitas were $9.99 each, which for... More

Saturday night crowd for the dining room with lovely view of the Haines Harbor. However, only one waitress. Not only was she harried, but also was inefficient. (Could carry only a plate and a glass at a time.) A couple, tired of the long wait just to be recognized and to place an order, got up and left . Wish... More

Recently ate at the restaurant. The table cutlery was dirty, with food on the forks. The menu has stains on it, and was marred with spelling errors, like may for mayo. One of my kids had the chicken fingers with fries for 5.99. The dish came, and I counted exactly 8 fries....talk about cut backs in the kitchen for portion... More

Has a great time here! Went in around 2:30pm and started to have a few drinks. Met some great people at the bar who later on invited us on their boat and had an amazing night! There were $1 mystery shots as well which were fun and a couple pool tables.
