Right on the waterfront so you can watch boats. Had a great lunch and dinner here while in Kodiak. Shrimp Tempura was awesome. Get a local beer there also.

We had dinner. I had shrimp tempura...excellent. And my husband had teriyaki beef and rice...excellent. Service was great, fast and pleasant. Wish there were more veggies with the dinners. Very busy, make a reservation in the summer.

Obviously by the name this restaurant was previously a power-generating station there on Kodiak and now it's a great place to eat and watch the fishing boats go in and out of the harbor. Nice place to watch for Eagles and other birds as well.

The fisherman's platter was delicious. It was well prepared and presented. Batter was very light and crispy. There were at least 6 types of fish including the salmon and halibut. Unique mix of American and Japanese food.

We stopped into this place during our stay in Kodiak. Service was good, our waitress was very attentive. The Sushi selection was large and we were able to find several items to order, all came out on time and tasted fresh. We would go back here next visit to Kodiak.

Not only is the seafood fresh but the service it top notch here. The Japanese dishes were great but if one is not into raw fish the cooked dishes were also done to perfection.

This place is a gem in this small town. You can have Japanese food or the other items are also very good. Great seafood, very efficient service, clean.. great views if you can sit by window. Get here early to get a window seat..

The best restaurant that we visited in Kodiak. Amazingly fresh fish with fantastic sashimi and sushi. Definitely more interesting food than Henry's and beautifully presented too. Friendly efficient service and if you get a table by the window (or out on the terrace on a sunny day) you can watch the boats go past on the water.
