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.

This restaurant turned out to be a pleasant surprise, The food tasted great and had a nice presentation. Good service. Atmosphere was a little loud , but much better than some of the other restaurant choices. Nice view of the water.

We were treated to an evening here and what a great restaurant, they have an excellent food list to choose from. If weather is nice you can be seated outside and watch the boats!!

We had lunch here while in Kodiak on 4/26/16. This restaurant was recommended by our nephews, who are locals, and it did not disappoint. We all had the lunch specials and the food was delicious. Service was very attentive and the lunch prices were very inexpensive. Great views of the river and bay and we saw a bunch of sea... More

This menu is incredible and the food outstanding. We had three different dishes. The flavors complimented the fish: perfect- flavorful but not over powering. The sushi roll was inventive but not covered in sauces which so many places do. Going back tonight.

Favorite sushi spot to go to when in Kodiak. Located on the water, it serves up fresh Alaskan Seafood when in season as well as other Sushi and Sashimi staples. Menu includes other Japanese favorites for those not interested in Sushi. Food is ample and service good.

One of my favorite aspects of the Powerhouse is the friendly staff. Fun views, watch the sea lions, puffins and boats. Sushi is good, along with the overall full menu.

Nice combination of hot and cold Japanese-ish food. Definitely worth a visit if only for the views out over the channel with passing fishing boats and... More

We only thought we were going to enjoy Old Powerhouse once but then got delayed on Kodiak and were able to go twice! The sushi is fresh and much of it is local. The restaurant is right on the channel so there are great views of fishing boats, etc. Service can be slow if they are busy, and reservations are... More
