Awesome lunch

We were looking for a place in downtown Juneau that was not a tourist spot. This place fit the bill. Great hamburgers w/a special sauce and a pickled zucchini slice. Taters tots were crispy perfection.

Was advised to go to Salt but went here based on reviews. Great choice. Had a great IPA to start. My wife passes on the wine. She had the mac & cheese app for dinner and I shared the grilled halibut with aoli. This should be the restaurant of choice for anyone.

We love to go to the Rookery on date night. The Rookery has a rotating menu and it's always exciting to see what is available.
