I love this restaurant and go almost every year. The fish and chips are fabulous! Other dishes have been good as well and the prices are pretty good. It is nice to sit with a view of the ocean. Service is usually quite good.

It had good food. The staff was very nice. The view was great! You could see the snowcapped mountains and turquoise water. You can also see eagles in the restruaunt.

Right from the moment we walked in, we had a horrible experience. It took forever for us to be seated. The meal we had (fish and chips) was horrible and tasteless. The service was horrific and we waited forever for our orders. When we DID receive them, they were wrong :( I would never go back to this place! I... More

Not fancy but, great and friendly service. The seafood chowder was very good along with a nice view of water and the mountains.

We traveled in Alaska for a month and dined at many places. This was the very best of a highly regarded list of outstanding experiences. Location, décor, menu options, and overall quality is not to be beat. Compliments and regards to the staff!

We had an evening meal here, and loved the setting, with its views out over the harbour and the inlet. The food was good - plenty of it, and good value, a nice menu.

We arrived later than expected in Haines and want to find a place for a late lunch. This place fit the bill. Service was fine, and the food was basic and decent. We arrived on a Tuesday, and they were still waiting for their weekly food delivery, so there was no salad available, which tells you something about Alaska and... More

The place could stand a good cleaning, the food is not very good and the service was just ok, it seemed that the server was having a bad day. The table was kind of sticky, but the photos on the wall were interesting
