Great gluten-free memu

Great gluten-free menu. Great steaks and salads. The blue cheese dressing is good. Would like to try the chicken plate next time

Guys, this is not the place to take your wife on a date unless she plans on watching your favorite team with you. So many monitors with every sport you can imagine playing simultaneously, and the neat thing is you can control which one you listen to right from your table. Now the food...everything on the menu is of great... More

Excellent little place to go to eat. Staff is always very pleasant & smiling. Sandwiches are huge, usually need a to go box, so could easily split a meal. Have eaten here multiple times & never had a bad experience.

Friendly staff, fast service, and good food. We have been there a few other times and it is predictably good. Is it five star dining? Of course not. But good bang for your buck and the food is just fine.

Huge menu, quality food! A bit crowded but worth it if you can get in. A definite stop when in Soldotna! $$$

Stopped in for lunch and was nicely surprised with good food and decent service. They have a large menu priced as Alaskan Restaurants price. Will definately go back.

Terrible service and terrible food. Go anywhere else! The place, admittedly, was busy but the service was extremely slow. I had some sort of Alfredo thing that tasted like the sauce was from a jar. Gross.

The food was constantly good. The chicken fingers were light & crisp. The burgers were of great quality. A little messy towards the end but good food.

Food was good but small portions and very pricey. The 2 1/4 sticks of celery looked pitiful on the plate. The blueberry sauce was quite good as was the blue cheese dressing. 6$ for a corona ???? You have to be kidding.

Driving through the area on a Sunday afternoon from Homer to Alaska, we wanted a bite to eat but not a big meal. The selection was great with an assortment of appetizers or small meals to choose from. Tasty.
