“Good and filling food but once is enough.”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

Wife and I went on a Friday night with out reservations which I would recommmend. We had originally decided to go to the Twisted Fish but they were hosting a private party and were closed.
Only had to wait about 20 minutes for a table which was OK considering how busy the place looked. Several cruise ships were in port and I am sure that added to a Friday night rush.
Can't comment on the supposed harbor views since we were almost sitting in the kitchen.
Waiter seemed harried and kind of sullen but he came around after I began talking to him and by the end of the evening he was pretty chatty.
Food was good and they served ample portions. I had a steak and the wife had a shrimp dish which she said was fine.
Maybe we just had a bad night but the place just seemed hectic and loud and it appeared they may have been short on staff.
If you want a chance at the harbor view make sure you have reservations.
When we return to Juneau I would try other places first just for the variety. Actually this seemed more like a place for a good luch than a relaxed evening meal.
I guess to sum up it felt like eating at a chain resturant.

“Mediocre food, high prices, great view”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

The crabcakes were mostly filler--a dead loss. The halibut was mediocre, the fries likewise. The servers? some were attentive, and otherrs were....umm, eccentric. The only thing to recommend the place is the great view of the harbor, but I daresay other, better restaurants had that too.

“Beautiful views, good food, great beer!”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

We ate dinner here on the night we arrived in Juneau from the US Midwest.

The weather was almost crystal clear the night we visited, and we really enjoyed the view of Juneau harbor and the mountains beyond.

As others have said, the beer selection was excellent. We tried two varieties of Alaskan Brewing beers, which we liked so much we drank Alaskan Brewing products on the rest of the trip.

The menu selections and food quality were similar to what you would expect from a Chili's, with a few local favorites, like halibut burgers also on the menu. The portions were very large; two people could share an entree.

The servers were reasonably friendly, although they seemed a little rushed at times - not surprising, since we were there at the height of the dinner rush.

Overall, it was a nice place to unwind after a very long day of travelling.

“Great Beer Selection!”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We visited based on a recommendation from the folks at the Alaskan Brewing Co. Store downtown. We did not want to make the trek out to the brewery but wanted to try some of the beers on tap. Hanger had 20-25 taps with 5 or so from Alaskan Brewing Co. Beyond that they had a nice selection of other micros from Alaska and the northwest as well as some good international taps. We also had the well known Alaskan Smoked Porter from a bottle (the guy at the company store said it wasn't currently available on tap)

The crowd was mostly locals, a nice change from the cruise ship crowds. We met one 'out-of-towner' from Skagway - he gave us some good advice for our visit there the next day.

We had an order of the steamed clams - very will done.

Nice view, friendly staff, great beer selection - well worth a visit while in town!
