“Good Food, Good People, & Good Prices”
Reviewed February 27, 2008

Good Down Home place to eat. This is a place where the locals eat. Sure you may have to put up with a little cigerette smoke, but it is worth it. And I'm a non-smoker. The Alaska Burger could feed two people, but I ate the whole thing. The Strawberry Pancakes are also very good, that was what my wife had. Was able to read a copy of the local newspaper, and visit with Locals at the sit down counter. But I really enjoyed the coffee, with as many refills as you need. Patty was a great waitress, and I enjoyed talking with everyone there. One of my best memories of Ketchikan Alaska. Give it a try, it is on the way to Dolly's.

“Good Local Breakfast”
Reviewed August 13, 2007

This is an unpretentious, local restaurant that is filled with locals as well as tourists desiring a normal American [Alaskan ?] breakfast at reasonable prices. Serving was large enough to share well-made pancakes at a total with tip under $15. Much preferred to a large hotel buffet that costs that much per person for pancakes made 3o minutes earlier.

“Good Food”
Reviewed June 7, 2007

Local cafe that serves good food for a reasonable price. The Alaska burger is enough for two people. If you do want to eat in a place without a separate No Smoking area this is not the eatery for you.
