“Location location location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

From where we were staying, it would have been a hike back into town, so we were glad that there was something close by. Food was pretty ordinary---like you would have found in an american chinese restaurant in the '50s. Chop suey still exists!

“Perfectly Adequate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

There aren't many restaurants to eat at in Petersburg, especially if you want some vegetarian food. The Pizza Place and Joan Mei are going to be about it. The food is nothing special, but it is clean and relatively tasty so it's a good choice if you are staying in the city a few days and you want to eat something else other than hamburgers, pizza and fish.

“Decent, one of the few dinner places open during winter months”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Before the summer tourist season kicks into gear in May, your choices for dining in Petersburg are rather limited. This is one of those few choices. It offers Chinese and American (think, burgers) fare. Prices are in-line with what is typical in Southeast Alaska for basic, sit-down fare. They also offer wine and beer.

Several of us had Chinese dinner items recently. They were good, particularly the egg rolls. The wonton soup was also quite good. The other items, though good, did not stand out in any particular manner. Service was very good in spite of the fact that there were far more guests than usual due to an event happening with the ferry across the street.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Don't be fooled by the interior decor. This little home-town restaurant has great Chinese food and a reasonable selection of more traditional dishes. It's nothing fancy, but the food and the service are good.
