“Dirtwater Revisited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

On a wet Friday in November we decided to revisit the Dirtwater Springs Restaurant for our supper. It was was a good decision as the party of four really enjoyed the food and the service was great. We arrived about 1645 and were immediately seated. .snacks were provided and the beer was cold. The all you can eat Alaska Cod was delicious and provided you with more then you needed to eat. The fries were homemade and good. I will revisit again

“5 out of 5”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

At first glance the restaurant is not impressive. It appears old and rundown, and it even smells a bit odd; but as soon as I tasted the incredible fried (all you can eat) cod I began to see Dirtwater Springs in a different light. The atmosphere, food, and value are all top notch. To feed a family of 5 an excellent meal for around $30 is a rare thing. I ordered the all you can eat cod and my ordered the all you can eat spaghetti. With the purchase of an adult meal you get a free child's meal. The food that arrived was far more than anyone of us could finish; surprisingly, the free kids meals were large and of high quality. 5 out of 5 stars. I found an excellent place to go for a good time with my family and I intend to return often.

“Fried Cod”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

If the English style of fish and chips is the world's standard, as I believe it is, the fried cod and french fry's at this restaurand fall far short of meeting that standard. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being excellent, I would rate Dirtwater Springs deep fried cod at 3. The breading used is terrible and the individual pieces of fish are small. When the fish are deep fried with that coating, they come out tough.
The service was excellent and the menu is extensive so there is no reason to have fried cod.
