“Most wonderful overall, just get good directions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

This was an amazing meal, view and service. My husband and I spent 30 minutes or so walking around Haines looking for Fireweed (I think it was the poor directions given). Once we found them we got in sat at the window and enjoyed a spectacular pizza with feta, italian sausage and ham. We got baked raviolli with a tomatoe dip (not sure what it was called) which was just phenomenal!

“Great Pizza and a Great View!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

We had a wonderful meal of the Orzo and Pea salad (you must love garlic and onion) and the Fireweed Favorite pizza. Such great pizza. The atmosphere inside is cozy and inviting as is the service.

“Best Pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

This restaurant is in kind of a tucked-away location ... so I urge you to take a look at the map in the visitor's guide and find it. It's well worth it! They have a good variety of foods to choose from, but the pizza is most awesome! There are about 10 (?) different choices with the majority having a marinara (red) base and 2 have a pesto (green) base. A variety of fresh ingredients are offered on the listed ones, or you can 'build' your own. We opted for the 'Fireweed' special - it was awesome!
Very thin crust but not brittle like they can get, and a generous amount of toppings made a meal that we couldn't finish! (Got the 18" size ... they also offer a 10" size.) They also offer a variety of local beers which is what we really came for - Haines Brewery Spruce Tip beer (sounds weird but it's awesome!). We opted to sit on the balcony to take in the view. The balcony is not the greatest as there's only a few picnic tables out there but looking out over the water and mountains make up for that. The service was quick and friendly and we got our food in a reasonable amount of time.
Take note - there are 2 entrances to this restaurant: the one facing the water is a steep set of stars, but there's a door on the other side with much less of a climb.
I highly recommend this restaurant!

“One of the top 3”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Ask any local and the answer will vary between 3 restaurants, the Fireweed is always one of the top 3. They serve a wide variety of foods with Pizza being a specialty. They also serve beer some of them are from the local brewery a real treat with your meal. It is located in the historic Fort Seward it does have 2 entrances on with a lot of stairs the other just a few for those who have issues with lots of stairs don't despair go around to the back side entrance.
