“Ammmmayzing view!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

It may be a long way from anywhere, but the view alone is worth the trip! Professional and friendly service, good menu and overall good value for money. There is a reason why this place gets so many good reviews and recommendations!

“♥️Best place on the planet to eat♥️”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We drive for 2 days, every couple years, from Red Deer, just to eat here. You cannot beat the seafood. The atmosphere and scenery is beyond compare. This time the live entertainment was the best musical experience we have ever had. The guitars and the voices made for the most exquisite of evenings. Seafood like this is so beyond compare. Delectable.

“Scenic Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We were told of this restaurant as a must visit for the food and the scenic view of the Okeover Inlet. Very good seafood menu and the view is to die for. This is a very popular restaurant and reservations are recommended. The restaurant is really up in the Lund area which is the end of Hwy 101.

“Has been better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Somewhat disappointed to wait 75 minutes for meal as previous visits have been outstanding. More bread or other should have been offered. Presentation always lovely. Seafood salad scant on seafood for price. Unfortunately regulations disallow local restaurants using local shrimp and fish, so shrimp from Thailand and other fish from Alaska. Staff friendly and chef met us at door.f
