Good Food But Not Great Service

The waiter and waitress were friendly enough but not very attentive, however, the service here was better than the other restaurant down the street... read more

Our lodge owner recommended Mykel's. Our waitress was very good natured and quick to respond. The food was delicious - we had the salmon and fish and chips. I would have given this place a 5 if it had a little more Alaska ambience. But if you're just looking for good food, this place will deliver.

My husband and I were disappointed in this place. Our waitress was absolutely cloying and other waitresses just seemed to circle the dining area looking for something to do. The food was fine. I had a tostado salad that was good. But everything was pricey. A lot of people seem to like the live music which was fine, but it... More

I LIVE In Soldotna and will never return to this restaurant. I was asked to leave because my son was bothering other customers. He was being a very well behaved 12 month old. Granted we fed him bread and little pieces of everyone else's food because he was still waiting for his grilled cheese after 40 minutes who wouldn't be... More

My daughter and I ate here as it was recommended by lodge manager. I had walnut crusted salmon and she had chicken pasta. The salmon was overly cooked with the crust being mostly flour/bread crumbs. Rice and veggies seemed to have been held in steam table a bit long. Pasta had soaked up the sauce, very heavy. Service was mediocre;... More

Mykel's is one of what I would refer to as upscale restaurants in Soldotna. I like the ambiance of the dimmed lighting and the private booths. Service over all is pretty good but sometimes the wait time seems longer than it should be. Have not had a bad meal there at all.

Love the prime rib and the Calamari on the appetizer menu. My friend raves about the halibut with blue cheese-its not on the menu but ask for it.

We were recommended Mykel's by the manager of the lodge where we stayed so we gave it a try. The place was packed and although the food was good- the real attraction for us was the fabulous local entertainment. We would go again for both!

Relaxed, calming atmosphere with delicious meals. Enjoy the unique benedicts on the weekends. Full service non-smoking lounge with soothing live music on the weekends is also well appreciated.

I have been going here for years and have been willing to pay the price, but the prices have risen even more while the quality seems to have declined.
