Our cruise ship made an unscheduled stop in this town and basically turned everyone loose to find something to do to make use of the day. This little half-restaurant/half-bar was overwhelmed and the servers were obviously whomever in town wasn't already doing something else. And the halibut fish... read more

A little overwhelmed when cruise ship docks, slightly pricey but food and service are ok if you're not in a hurry.

The fish and chips were great but for 26 dollars?? Give me a break, save your money and shop around or ask a local where to go. I have a feeling Alaska is heading for trouble. Too many tourist traps and money pits, won't be back. Goodbye scammers

It's just a little diner, nothing special. We were there on a busy weekend (Brew Fest) and they were out of a lot of things on the menu. After dinner we went next door to the bar, and the "bartender" was beyond rude. She didn't know how to make the signature drinks they have featured on their menu, and asked... More

The waitress didn't know what was available for pies and forgot my salad. The food was ordinary but very expensive for 2 pieces of fish and fries, $16. The fish was overlooked.

How disappointing given the rather good reviews here. Visited on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend 2015 based on the reviews here and the moniker "famous for fish and chips" on the outside of the restaurant. Arrived to an empty house (both bar and restaurant) at 5:45 p.m. on a Saturday night of a very busy Haines, AK, weekend (annual... More

This was one of few options near our hotel, and fortunately it was very nice. The inside of the building is about half bar, and half restaurant. The food was good to very good. Some of the best halibut fish and chips I've ever had, and I live in Alaska.

The bamboo room has been around since the dawn of time. If the walls could talk they would tell volumes. I have eaten there maybe 8-10 times over 10 or so years. I am always satisfied, We just ate there 3 times in the same amount of days. The place was BUSY with a big swim meet going on. Ever... More

If you want good fish and chips go here. Good menu. Open hours are a tad weird. Decor is old but nice. Good place to take the family. Prices can be a bit over the top on something's

This place has been around forever and has lots of interesting history. The menu is pretty basic, good food, homecooking. The staff are friendly. A good place for a warm meal on a rainy day
