Best restaurant in Haines

Our best dinner on the trip. Make a reservation as it is a small place. Very good service and food. Felt like we were a guest in the owners home. Came to each table and talked to everyone.

We stayed in the hotel and since it was late we decided to eat here. It was a very lovely dining room and the food was beautifully executed.

We had dinner at the Commander's Room in late July It was so busy that we opted to eat in the bar, rather than the main restaurant. However, as always, the food was really excellent and we didn't feel at all deprived. I admired the wait person who was working a big crowd alone and managed to do it quite... More

This is the more upscale restaurant for Haines. It was very good. We just had salads and flatbread and it was excellent. We ate in the bar and the wait staff was so-so. Fun to people watch as you have the hikers and city folk mixed together!

Pleasantly furnished dining room with a view to the parade grounds. just a limited menu. every dish we tried was cooked to perfection and quite delicious. we loved the salmon, the halibut, the lamb shank with Moroccan spices and the rabbit sausage dishes. good friendly service. I think the reason why the restaurant doesn't get many reviews is that it... More

We were expecting more from this restaurant that some have spoken highly of. The chicken liver pate was excellent, rest of meal just good. All would have been fine if we had had friendly service. The waitress (evening, bar, 6/24/15) was decidedly unfriendly. Only when she brought food for the table, she told me they were out of what I... More

I wish the restaurant stayed open past 9pm. That's probably my biggest complaint. The food I was served over two nights was terrific. If you like seafood, try out the king salmon, the halibut, or the fish and chips. I would also recommend looking at the wine list. The prices they are charging for good bottles of wine is very...

Ate here twice towards the end of the summer. The first time I had the Moroccan spiced lamb shank w/couscous and it was truly gourmet. The next time I tried the house made rabbit sausage. That was quite good, but the portion was pretty small for the price. My dining partner had the halibut, which he raved about.

Ok, I know this was their last day of the season, but everything seemed a bit....rubbish! 2 of the 5 or 6 entrees were sold out, and we were there early, but this looked like the busiest day of the year...it was packed! It took a full hour to go straight to entree's. I ordered the rib-eye, medium rare, it... More

Although learning to cook a steak is one of the easiest tasks for most chefs to learn, those in the kitchen here consistently mess up. If a steak is ordered medium rare it comes out rare. If you order medium it comes out rare. The menu does not say "pepper steak", yet the steak arrives coated in cracked pepper. The... More
