I had lunch here twice, as it was on the agenda during our Road Scholar program. The food is mediocre but it is worth a visit just for the Alaska decor & memorabilia on the walls. The owner greeted us & proceeded to give us his family history (grandfather came during Gold Rush, father was an Alaskan governor). He loves to sit back & talk while the lone waiter Bill does the bulk of the serving. It is worth going there just to meet Bill who makes dining there a unique experience.
