Looked like a place that might be a local favorite. They say they have been there 30 years. Whew, I find that hard to believe except that the place looks like it was decorated 30 years ago. The food was very average. Think Long John Silvers fried fish. The Halibut was OK, but as expensive as it is for 2... More

Given the name of the place I had high expectations of this place. I ordered the classic fish and chips which were that days special of rockfish. You're kidding me right. It came in a paper boat with shoe string fries ~ bad enough right there but the fish did not look or taste like rock fish at all. The... More

Great place for a quick meal. Everything on the menu I think was fried. We had the fried salmon and the fried halibut. It was good, not great. It's more or less a fast food place. You enter and order, sit and they bring it to you.

Not a lot of restaurants in Valdez but I wanted halibut. And I was delighted to have picked this place. The halibut meal...4 pieces of lightly battered and fried halibut and fries. The fish was very tasty fried in fresh oil so the flavor was wonderful and the fries as well. You order from the menu on the wall and... More

At a late dinner here on the recommendation of trip advisor. So happy that we did so. Get the fried halibut dinner. Very fresh, nice batter. Simple meal but really fresh tasting. Really good tarter sauce, too. Fries are nothing to write home about, but you are really there for the fish!

Alaska prices are overall higher than the lower 48. That being said the lunch was a very good value. They had a "salad bar". The only reason I didn't give the higher rating...small paper bowl, one pass. The fish was excellent, light batter. Wait staff was professional.

Yummy lunch of halibut. I have not been to this place sense I was a kid, so when we were in town we stopped by. Not a lot has changed over the years.

Ate here twice - beer battered halibut and red salmon. Decent salad bar, good food, reasonable price, large servings. Recommended to us by BnB owners. Located a bit away from harbor across from Safeway store.
