A Study in Contradictions

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

We stopped in for a late lunch and the restaurant was not very busy. The restaurant was divided down the middle with a wall and a diner like restaurant on one side and a bar on the other side. You could eat and drink on either side. We chose the bar side as it was much more eclectic with funny... More

Local food good service. Enjoyed staff. No down side. Even when they were busy they were fast. We were there during beer Fest and there aren't a lot of restaurants they did an amazing job with the serving staff

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.
