We liked the atmosphere of the hotel (3 trips there) cocktail was average at best, dinner spouted by staff as best in town and if true we feel sorry for the town folk. It is a nice place to visi with other travelers and some town folks, unfortunately that came to an end when some patrons felt it appropriate to... More

No matter what is ordered, you can't go wrong. Two things that were recommended by friends but I didn't get a chance to try was the captains cheeseburger and the duck confit salad. But everyone who I know that has tried a dish or two in the commander's room gave rave reviews. Even something as simple as fries taste heavenly.... More

This is a little gem. It is a quaint hotel set in attractive historical fort setting. While the decor is a little shabby the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food for the four of us was outstanding. Definitely worth a meal here if you are visiting 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
