The Crab Legs were the best deal in town! And they tasted great too. They have a sign on the corner of the street saying Fresh Fish and they are not kidding. Right off the boat!

We ate both lunch and dinner at the pub. The Caribou Chili was excellent, a must try. They have from salads to burgers to full dinners. Great burger and the Salmon was cooked perfect.
