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

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.

This is a great place to eat. We actually ate there a few times during our short stay. It was a bit noisy with volume control speakers on every table.

The food was good and of an adequate serving size however upon delivering my entrée that waitress asked if I would like steak sauce and I indicated I would like bbq sauce. I was surprised when I went to pay the bill that $1 was added on for what is usually a complimentary condiment .
