We've been to the Red Dog several times over the past twenty years, and it never really seems to change. There are minor interior modifications but it is basically always a fun place to go for lunch. The interior is very funky/Western and dusty. If you're coming off a cruise ship, your best bet is to go directly there as fast as possible. Otherwise, you'll have to wait in a line outside which may be slightly unpleasant if the weather isn't good.

The food is decent lunch fare--good chowder, caesar salad, burgers and bratwurst. Those are the dishes that the 4 of us chose.

I'm not sure of the schedule when the piano/keyboard player is there. He was there when we were there for lunch in August, and he played a nice set. One of us is a professional piano player who does exactly what this guy does, so that is actually a good recommendation on the entertainment.

The minute you hear the laughter, and saloon noise you know you've been transported back to the gold rush time. Always a line up to get in. We didn't have a chance to eat here, so no review for food. Atmosphere was great though. Great little gift shop- get a tee shirt - look for coupons for free promo items.

On a recent trip to Alaska we had dinner at the old saloon. We went in the place just to check it out and drink a beer but were surprised by the excellent food and service. As expected, it was kinda loud and a little rowdy with a good ole country singer on stage. it is important to go there between cruise ships since that crowd overwhelms the place.

Different to see with all the writing on the walls. Very authenticate with the saw dust floor and all. The atmosphere was okay and the food was just oaky. Fun for a laugh. Beer was cold.

We stopped in after our trip to the Mendenhall Glacier. The crab dip was great start. The music was fun. Service by Matthew was excellent.
