Yes, Alaska is gorgeous! Okay, we had incredible experiences viewing wildlife and interacting with local characters. But it is interesting after returning home from our Alaskan cruise that one of the definite highlights of our sojourn was eating at this local establishment in Juneau. We'd been to this city a couple of time previously so have seen and done a lot of things there. We were initially quite disappointed that our favorite Thane Ore House had closed, but the rental car agent steered us in the direction of the San Bar and Grill and we were thrilled she did! Yes, we were warned that it is a bit of a dive. Not to the point where you can't be interested in another layer of Alaskan experience. But the fried Halibut platter made everything worth it. Kind of funny that after consuming a myriad of delectable meals on our cruise, this is probably the meal which stands out in our collective memories after returning home. Would we go back again? You betcha! Don't just settle for the melt-in-your-mouth halibut balls and fries, but be sure to order some of the deep-fried zucchini and other vegetables, too. I can see why they can't add this to the formal tour circuit, but all you independents should put it on your agendas:)
