A good greasy spoon-type place

Food was average, menu had a lot of variety. This is a nice regular, run of the mill place to eat and you can always get a table. It is also open late!

We wanted a hot lunch at a sit down restaurant. We came across the Carbou. We both had a fish burger and fries. The sandwich left a lot to be desired. I guess this is a local spot, but would not recommend it to anyone.

Don't do it. Unless you're desperate and nothing else is open, as was the case for us. The server was very nice but the food was just terrible. When we returned to our B&B our hostess told us it was the worst place in town. But it was late, it was there and we were exhausted and hungry. My advice... More

Alaska Diner type food. Old, typical frozen in time AK restaurant. Good service. Nothing special, although you can get a decent meal.

We were referred to the Caribou Family Restaurant by the owners of our lodging. It was acceptable. The food was good and the portions were large but expensive for what you got. Typical breakfast meal was around $15. The place needs to be updated. It does look dark and worn. The staff were nice and our waitress was very attentive.... More

Four of us ate here 4 years ago and the food was very good with large portions. We ate here again this year and nothing has changed. Pleasant employees and good food. My husband tried the sourdough pancakes and he really enjoyed them. Glad we made the second visit.
