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 .

We sat outside and had a wonderful dining experience. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing. The food was fantastic! The halibut was fresh and not over spiced. The beer selection was extensive. The wait staff was attentive until they started getting busy. Three big tables of people arrived at the same time. We had to wait on our check, but... More
