Caesar salad made table-side was perfect! Steak was amazing! The atmosphere is cozy and warm -- great for a cold January evening.

For some reason, this little place is not widely known about but it should be in everyone's top 5 list for best in Alaska. Everything was wonderful from start to finish.

Quaint historic setting for this long time Anchorage fixture. Wonderful fresh local seafood, and excellent service . Owners are making their rounds and are good smoozers and have run the restaurant for 40 years. A little pricey, but great for a special occasion
