I've been to this lovely historic restaurant several times and ordered several different dishes. Everything I've ever had has been delicious. Beautiful presentation of the food, great service, and cozy setting. We love this place!

A great locals hang-out, where you can tell the regulars are greeted by name. Friendly folks and reindeer sausage made it a great stop for the cheapest meal I had while in Alaska, which means it cost double what my PA diner costs.

We tried several fish restaurants in Seward and the Inn Cafe seafood bucket was by far the best. So good in fact my husband was sorry he had the steak and wants to return to try one.

I have never had anything to eat that wasn't delicious. The service is great, atmosphere amazing and if you like history you should check that out too. This building was the Teacher's Dormatory when the Colony was settled in the 30s. Take some time to learn about the history while your there.

This place has the best ribeye in the Valley hands down. The mussels are awesome too! Always fast and great service...just wish they had beer on tap. They do have beer in the bottle though. Their Sunday brunch is unbeatable as well!

This is a nice quiet little restaurant. The service was great, and the food was delicious. I could see this becoming one of my favorites.

We found the B&B very charming with a nice interior. The dining room is cozy with pleasant atmosphere. We enjoyed a very good prime beef dinner.

I've eaten here twice and both times had good food. I've only eaten at lunch time and the crab sandwich was good and so was the cheese steak sandwich. Service was good, atmosphere is good, but keep in mind it is a small restaurant.
