“I want to go back”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

My wife and I have been to Alaska twice, and upon the recommendation of a friend, we made it a point to eat here. Their beer-battered halibut melts in your mouth and is the best halibut we've ever had. The atmosphere is rustic, and the owners and waiters are very friendly. We were even given a ride back into Juneau on their courtesy shuttle after our meal. It is located 5 miles out of town, and most tourists don't know about it - they allstay in the port area and eat in downtown restaurants. Hail a taxi and just say "Thane Oar House.". You'll be glad you did.

“Thane Ore House”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

A little out of the way but worth the trouble if you can get there. All you can eat options, plenty of seafood, beautiful location on the water.

“We like Thane Ore House.”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We like the variety of food available. Not a fancy kind of restaurant at all, but, very comfortable and we enjoy visiting with the owners. It is a very original type of restaurant. There is also neat mining museum in the back of the restaurant, where they used to have a great gold mining show. This restaurant has a nice view of the channel and also has nice outside dining. We like going to the Thane Ore House, much better than the Golden North Salmon Bake, which has moved to a mediocre location and is really expensive. Thiis is a comparable type of restaurant, that I think we prefer.

“VERY TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Battered halibut is dry, not as tasty as other restaurants in Juneau. Not very clean place. I want to puke after eating. Very terrible customer service.

“Best value in Juneau”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Great food at a reasonable price. The halibut and salmon were better than any we have had in Alaska. Our taxi driver said this is where the locals eat and our Inn keeper said they have the best beer batter halibut in town. They were right. If you are looking for fancy this is not the place for you, but if you want a good simple meal, with a good salad bar this is it. Six of us ate for the same price I spent at Zephyr for two, and this was a much better meal. I can't wait to go back for my birthday dinner next week.
