“Beautiful old log cabin with wonderful meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

I loved everything! I dislike that I live so far away. The staff was all very kind and helpful. The food was the best I have had anywhere. The owners were very nice. She went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and more. We never went away hungry. We talked all the time we were hiking about what the next special of the day might be. We were anxious to get back and cleaned up in time for dinner.

“Just what we wanted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

This place is in a roadhouse that was built in 1904. It is rustic, which to us was part of the charm. They have several dinner choices and a great sandwich selection. We both had the special which was a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with fries(I suggest the sweet potato fries). We also both had tea and split the chocolate cake and ice cream. $34.90, which we felt was reasonable since there is not much around and this is rural AK. Much better value than many other AK restaurants. The service was excellent too, we would definitely return. They are only open for dinner.

“An old Roadhouse with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Like eating in a museum, although rather dark inside. Food was good quality and plenty of it. Selection of Alaskan beers available.

“Good eats and cold beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is the real deal when it comes to authentic Alaska. The website really tells you everything you need to know. We had a very nice dinner, fresh salmon and local beer, all provided with friendly service. The salad bar was small but fresh. There's not many other choices up this way but even if there were this place would be worth a visit.
