“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We ate here twice during our stay in Soldotna. Their food is decent and their desserts are just delicious and the dessert slices are HUGE - one slice of their delicious cake was more than the two of us could eat!
The only thing I did not like was the door - it slams so hard if the person in front of you lets go off it - it almost broke my arm. My arm is still bruised now. I hope they will fix it before somebody gets seriously hurt.

“Good salad bar, good selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

The salad bar here is a good deal. Add it to a sandwich and you can eat well. Lots of fixings and at least two soup options. The menu has breakfast lunch and dinner and is a decent price for this part of Alaska. Service is fast and friendly. A diner in a log cabin.

“So-So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

They have been trying to update their menu and facility. Nothing special about the decor or food. Bathrooms are supposed to be remodeled soon.

Breakfast 24 hours a day. Nothing special, just a good all around place to eat. The staff is friendly

“Good Chowder”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Average is the best I can say. Every-time me and my husband eat there we both get the runs which of course gives us cause not to eat there. I'd stick with the salads and drinks. The chowders and salad bar are actually very good but like I said, buyer beware! There is generally enough to take home a doggy bag unless you order breakfast. Good luck!
