We enjoyed a couple of cold beers and bar food while seated at a window table looking out on a clear blue sky day. This is mostly a locals place. Our beers were ordered and paid for from the Squires Rest bar portion of the establishment. Our food was ordered and paid for from the Devils Hideaway window portion of... More

Whilst it was snowing heavily outside a call in to Squires Rest was necessary! Just a typical bar, no frills, but typical Alaskan. Great tequila, onion rings and the vibe. Bar staff as you'd expect - colourful. Authentic, real in every way!

Squires Rest is the polar opposite of the Red Dog downtown. It is a neighborhood bar that real people come to for a beer n burger break. If you expect lots of souvenir items for sale, skip this stop as you head out the road to see some Lynn Canal views, the Shrine and Eagle Beach and beyond. Atmosphere wise,... More

This was perfect meal (burgers) after a long day hiking in the rain-self order at a walk up window, and very much a local place/bar. We liked it!

Nothing to dislike. This is a neighborhood bar and everyone knows everybody. Kind of like sitting in the living room, but with more people to interact with.

Auke bay harbour with the glacier as a back drop could be considered to be an ideal location. However the lack of services is disappointing. Restaurants are overpriced with poor quality of food and attitudes of those who know you either pay or do without. The exception to this is the Squires Rest bar, I visited a number of times... More

Stopped for beer and food, both of which were good (burgers and wings). Nice view of the harbor and both marinas. Far enough from downtown to get good service. A good local vibe and comfortable feel, they are OK with tourists, friendly and attentive.

Lots of friendly locals.Located in the Auke Bay Area. Amazing views of the small harbor. The restaurant located in the bar(The Devils Claw) was small but the food they put out was excellent. Burger type fare was above average in taste. Worth a visit if you are staying in Juneau
