A great family and good food. Always a good place to eat and everyone is welcoming. They have just retired and had the last day of business and we wish them the best!

BeeJay's is the truck stop at Watson Lake and doesn' look like a place you'd care to stop from the outside. But inside it is welcoming, clean and gave us the best breakfast of our trip. Who would expect perfect Eggs Benedict at the edge of nowhere. Seriously, really good food and nice service.

Close to our Inn at Watson Lake, it was our best bet for breakfast....turned out to be a great choice!! Attached to BeeJay's Service garage, you really have to have a close look to know that it's there. Nice staff and a really good, hearty breakfast made for a good start to our day. In and out in no time... More

The food is breakfast, burgers, sandwiches and daily specials. The servings were a generous size and the service was quick and friendly. The dining room is clean and has a great view of the Alaska .highway

You wouldn't know by looking at the place that it is a really good cafe. The sign is faded and the building is nondescript. But the good is first-rate and the service is quick and attentive.

Salad was fresh. They had jam like packets for salad dressing which was new for me. Chicken was fried and certainly not the best I have had. Perhaps, the grease was slightly old or it was a unfamiliar oil type? I took most of the fried skin off the chicken and was left with little meat of the wing, drumstick... More

Sure doesn't look like much from the outside, but the people are very friendly, service is great, burgers were great. Lots of interesting historic photos on the walls.

Don't let the appearance of this restaurant deceive you! It doesn't look like much, but the food is delicious! I had two bowls of the potato cheddar soup. Outstanding!

Excellent little breakfast, steak & eggs here at this quaint Truck Stop cafe. I love truck stops and used to run one so I am comfortable in the greasy engine atmosphere! LOL Puts new meaning into the words Greasy Spoon.

Thank Carrie M
