Food was good and fairly priced. Beer was a little more but it wasn't horrible. Staff was friendly, it was extremely busy.

Given that you're miles and miles from the nearest supermarket, you'd be happy with anything. But this place serves up heaping portions of great food in a bustling, lively environment. Loads of fun!

Good place to come and have a drink after a hard days hiking in Wrangell St Elias, not that there is much to choose from in McCarthy ! Despite the isolated location it serves very good food, with veggie options (which we appreciated). Has open mike nights but being very respectful of where they are people do become quiet later...

What a lovely place, they do a good job looking after groups, especially when they wander in unexpectedly. I had a veggie burger the first night which was really nice and a crazy spicy cajun type dish the next night, loved it! Good vibes, really liked this place!

We ate here both nights we were in McCarthy as it was pretty much the only place open. I have a very restricted diet due to breast-feeding baby allergies, and they were very nice to check and find me a meal to eat. We had the Creole shrimp dish, along with burgers and salad. The burger was satisfying after a... More

This place hit the spot during a long week of camping, no showers, 4wheeling, photography, etc. Great place to chill and feel like a normal human again. We will be going back.
