We so wanted to visit here so bad but the line was out the door. There were 3 cruise ships docked and ours in Haines. The whole town was hard to appreciate with the overwhelming tourist.

The Red Onion is a fixture in Skagway. We live in Whitehorse and have visited this establishment for more than three decades. They do an awesome job with artifacts and period costumes. The location cannot be beat.

We were interested in seeing the saloon but it was so dark, crowded, & dusty we were turned off. I know it was a brothel but the "kid" who greeted us looked ridiculous. Food looked okay, nothing special.

Good drinks, food. Girl waiters dressed as Madams with a hotel tour for $10 visiting rooms and 100 year ago life

The girls in the saloon were friendly and happy and willing to take pictures with you. Food mediocre. Good to have a beer.

No The train ride I hear takes most of your time and there was a long line to enter and site even for a beer.

Just go to the Red Onion and find out when the next tour is....they start about noon. They meet you and you pay ($10 ) on the ground floor and the tour is upstairs in what is left of the brothel. I was on the noon tour... More
