I've eaten here twice, both times were great. Service was quick attentive and friendly. Food is great and different as well. Pretty good wine by the glass choices for a small town. I will definitely go back.

Loved this place. Super busy, had to wait a little bit for a table but it was totally worth it. They were out of the scallop app I ordered, but had the ham board (with coffee-infused mustard, whaaaat? Delicious beyond belief), fondue, and beet salad. Everything was amazing. Wine list needs some love, and I HATE the stupid little wine... More

I love grabbing lunch or dinner at this coffee shop. Every other time we go downtown we end up eating here because it's that good. This isn't your typical coffee shop food. Everything is made to such high quality. It's clear that the owner Loves to cook to take such care in everything they make. It's hard to say if... More

I have loved the Rookery for many years as a Cafe and always stop in whenever I am in Juneau, and now to find out that they are open for dinner at night! Their appetizers are fabulous, salads divine and deserts large enough to share! I love this place, and oh yea, the wine is great too as are the... More

My coworkers and I were in Juneau for some training and had a group dinner here. The service was excellent even though we were a large party. Everyone enjoyed their food and said they wood eat here again. I'm a vegetarian so I had a spinach salad and the mac and cheese. Very good food.

The Rookery is a true gem of Juneau's food scene. With great pastries, burritos, coffee and hot drinks throughout the mornings, it has a wonderfully warm atmosphere with friendly relaxed service. The Saturday Brunch is simply a must if you can get in the door! Lunch and dinner are unique and exquisite. They are well thought out and delightful. The... More

We decided to have dinner here last week while we were in Juneau. They were able to seat 10 of us and we all enjoyed our meal.

Well I went back to The Rookery for dinner. Wow! Great menu, food, ambiance. The service was perfect. Friendly staff who took the time to go over the menu with me & check in to see if I was ok. Coffee to die for. Visit when in Juneau. You will not be disappointed.

So glad I stopped in here! Menu changes a lot, so look at it in the window first. The atmosphere is cool, and the food is even better. I ordered the Brussels sprouts and bibimbop. Both really good, but not sure what they were thinking with fresh tomatoes in the bibimbop. Also I like the bottom part of the rice... More
