“overpriced”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

The food can be very good or just mediocre. The wait staff and bartenders are always smiling and friendly. The last take out meal I purchased was $27.00 for one person and the food was a jumbled mess when I arrived home. Not appetizing.

“Grossly overpriced”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This restaurant had food which was ok but nothing special. I ordered a round of drinks for four of us which cost $40 - insane prices!! The restaurant was almost empty. We were in a larger group and were seated towards the back of the restaurant - so no view. On top of this there was an automatic 20% gratuity on already high prices.

“Great view, good food”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

The food was good and the portions were generous. A bit overpriced, but expected for southeast AK. There aren't any other options for "fine dining" in Cordova so if that's the atmosphere you're looking for this is the place to be. If you order dessert share it with the rest of the restaurant because it's that big.

“Reluctant Fisherman”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Food presentation was good, Hors-derves consisted of two pieces of Pilot Bread with a Salmon Pate and could have used a larger amount of the Pate to go with the Pilot Bread, chef was stingy with it and wanted to charge more for what equivilated about a tablespoon. The same with salad dressing. Quantity could bet a bit better. Prices not too bad for the area. They need to enlarge the menu a bit as it is rather limited. Resteraunt has a great view of the harbor where the fishing fleet of the area berths. Fun to watch them come and go.

Reviewed March 22, 2012

everyone that ate with us loved their meal. Guess the new chef is from Chicago and he is doing a fantastic job with the menu. of course the sea food is great!
