“Fun place”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Went with family for lunch. Simple food but it was good. Service was excellent. Fun entertainment. Loud. Face it---it's a tourist place, but well done. Expect crowds if a cruise ship is in.

“Fun and Friendly”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

Everybody is happy here. You walk into a old time Saloon with sawdust on the floor that reminded me of a bar from college days. The Gal at the bar was full of fun and she recommended the drink called the "duck fart" because you would of course have a year of good luck if you drank one . I will have 3 years of good luck. My Sister Moey and her husband Doug had been there 14 years ago and said we had to go...so glad we did and we were early enough that it wasn't crowded. What a fun experience!

“Always the Same”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

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.

“Red Dog Saloon- the real Alaska”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

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.

“Try the Red Dog”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

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.
