Fantastic little place in downtown Anchorage. Great for breakfast and lunch. Old fashioned diner atmosphere with a super selection of food. We both had omelettes. Ham and cheese for the wife and reindeer sausage for me. Both we large and tasty. Came with a generous...helping of breakfast potatoes and wheat toast. I added a side of gravy. Man it was good. Excellent service as well. Hope to get back before we head home.More

My husband and I had a couple days in Alaska post cruise. We were looking for something close to our hotel for breakfast as it was raining. Saw good reviews and was not disappointed at all. It was truly refreshing. It really is reminiscent of...a cafe. The staff is so friendly,the service is great,everyone is happy and works together. Youcan watch your food being cooked. Everything is fresh,delicious and ample portions. Went back the next day for breakfast again and it was just as good. Only disappointment was that we had to go home and we’re not able to have the halibut sandwich. Chrissy the owner is lovely.More

The reviews convinced us to try. We are so glad we did. The staff are so delightful and the ambiance truly of a small diner. Our meals were tasty and exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommended.

Disappointing. World Famous Halibut sandwich was nothing special at all. Could be a cute place, but waitress was completely bored and the same 5 songs played over and over when we were there. Bummed it wasn't more special.

Excellent food and service. The grilled halibut melt was delicious and so was the fried halibut sandwich. Would definitely recommend eating here. The food was made fresh and served nice and hot.

We ate here last summer. We actually just found it heading to some stores on the same road. I can't remember everything we had but I know we had the Halibut Sandwhich and the Salmon Sandwhich. Pretty sure we had one of the soap specials....The sandwhiches are huge and you can share if you're like our family. We like to try different things and everyone share what you ordered. The owners are great and when they aren't crazy busy stopped to talk with us and my husband really enjoyed the conversation! We thought it was so good we ate lunch there twice. Highly recommend!More

We opted to eat here for breakfast when we first arrived in Anchorage, rather than eat at our hotel. You know the place has to be good when you see local police officers eating there! I had the veggie omelet and my husband had the...reindeer breakfast plate. Both were excellent. The prices were very reasonable as well. We also enjoyed the cafe/diner atmosphere and the friendly staff. We highly recommend this restaurant!More

Nothing fancy. Plain interior. I stopped in for a quick breakfast. Not too busy on this weekday. I had pancakes and bacon and coffee. The food was okay, nothing to rave about. But it was filling. Prices reasonable.

Perfect spot for a quick burger. Small but efficient and excellent food with good prices. Staff all friendly and they work well together in a small kitchen area.

Horrible experience. Got seated and beverages quickly. Sat for 10 minutes 2 people came in and ordered and one got their food. We still didn’t place an order. We took our business elsewhere.

We stopped here for a quick lunch after reading the reviews. The halibut sandwich really is as good as the hype. My husband liked his grilled cheese, jalapeño sandwich too. It is a hole in the wall but a really good one. Staff were friendly...and efficient. Glad we stopped in.More
