A bit pricey for the fare. Salmon was overcooked even when I requested rare. Vegetables a bit soggy. Halibut rap was good but lacked Halibut. One bite on one side, nothing on the other. The place was clean and managed well. Food needs some help.

I had 2 dinners here while I stayed at the adjacent gillmore hotel. I would have expected that as a guest I'd get a discount here, at least on breakfast but, no dice. In any case, the food offered here was pricey and not prepared...More

Depending on where the ship docks, it is right across the street or no farther than an easy two block walk.
