Great King Crab!

Great king crab at a great price! Fun atmosphere with great staff attentive to detail. We visited 2 times in 3 days and both were very positive experiences!

This is a very casual place but that is in keeping with the town. The food was ok but nothing really special. I had the seafood chowder and expected to find some actual pieces of seafood in it but really didn't. The flavor was ok. My wife had a burger and again, ok but nothing really special. As with all...

We sat outside so I cannot say much for ambience inside except to say that the whole place seems a bit run down; but that might be what they're going for. I ordered a burger which was "okay", a bit dry and was served with a large side of fries. My son ordered caribou burger which he said was good.... More

Decent pub food with a good selection of beer on tap. If you are at the bar near closing, you might meet the mayor. Both times i was there at closing, Stubbs came in for a drink.

We stopped in for a burger and a beer on a recommendation and although the burger was good...it was nothing to write home about. The establishment is old...like really old... The bar (inside) has some character, inside dining is a hole with no windows and fold up chairs - just don't..., outside dining is the only viable option. Kitchen is... More

Our B&B owner told us the West Rib was a good burger joint for lunch, was she ever right. Not big on ambience the food and drinks made up for the atmosphere. It was a nice day so we sat outside sipping our local cold beer waiting for our burgers. When they arrived we understood the reccommendation they were delicious,... More

Enjoyed a nice lunch at this local establishment. Lots of tourist mixed with pilots and local folk. We enjoyed two different halibut dishes and the berry crisp. Staff hustled to accommodate crowded restaurant .

We picked this place because of the specials listed outside--nothing fancy to look at but the food was great. We had a cup (huge!) of caribou chili and one of seafood chowder--both were delicious. Then we shared an order of halibut fish & chips--plenty of food and they brought an extra plate without being asked. Our drinks were kept filled... More

Ate here twice in Talkeetna and was not disappointed either time. Great menu selection with many foods to choose from, while also having a great beer selection. I had the salmon quesadilla which was stellar!

Ate outside on a nice July day in Takeetna. Denali Agave Gold beer is some of the best I've had....wow! Had the fish (haddock) and chips....very good, but traveling thru Alaska for two weeks has made me very selective. Friendly wait staff made for a very pleasant lunch. The beer made my day!
