While the food was tasty they were out of several things on the menu. I ordered the filet kebab and there was no kebab to it. The only veggies served which would have been on it were peppers. No onions or mushrooms.

My friend and I had the halibut burger. Very yummy! My sister had the shrimp rice bowl. She loved it!

The fish burger was delicious. The hospitality was great. And the atmosphere was outstanding. We opted to eat out on the patio and it was a cloudless day. What a treat to "people watch".

We went for the fish tacos. They were tasty but overpriced for what you got. I didn't price the other eateries in the area, so this might be the going rate, but wasn't impressed with the portions.

We caught a salmon on a Phantom Tri-River Charger and it was suggested we take our salmon to this Bistro -what a marvelous concept. For $15 they cooked one salmon and provided two sides. Others in our party had sandwiches, but sent their soup back (too bland).

We happened to be staying in the Chinook WindCabins which were pretty much across the street from this restaurant. So convenient! Also as you are driving North on the Talkeetna Spur Road, they are the first restaurant on the left as you reach town. If traveling by rail road, they are right across the street from the rail station. They... More

Food was excellent and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. She steered us toward some excellent dishes including the halibut burger and the crab cakes.

I had just got done fishing for 6 hours and I was hungry. I also had to catch my bus in 40 minutes. I stopped in here since it was across the street from the bus stop. Glad I stopped in. The halibut burger was great, really thick. I was able to sip down a couple beers from their good... More

Stopped in here after a tour. It is a small place that is mixed between a restaurant and tour booking location. I had a cup of reindeer chili and a halibut burger both of which were awesome. The server was a lot of fun to talk to also and the prices were quite reasonable for Talkeetna. I would go back... More
