“French fries! Crab salad sandwich. Fish and Chips. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Yum! A great place right across from the bus stop. They also have Sun Dog Kennels and we got a free meal with our ticket. A nice stop. There is a walking tour brochure of the town and shopping to keep you busy.

“A Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

The surprise started when a server came outside to chat with us while we were reading the menu by the door. We left for some shopping but returned when the Seafood Mac & Cheese she had described called out to us. As one of the other reviewers reported, that was a surprise - not at all the seafood mac & cheese we expected, but a collection of seafood with penne in an Anfredo sauce. Maybe the healthfulness of the fish offset the richness of the sauce? It was excellent. An added plus were the two servers from Bulgaria who were friendly and attentive. It is located on the highway as you enter town; luckily we were out for a walk or we might not have gotten that far from the center of town. Not cheap, but not unreasonable for an excellent meal. Not very busy when we were there, it might get loud if the bar space were packed. $30 each with a glass of wine each and a shared salad and dessert.

“Surprisingly good ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by for late lunch and really enjoyed it. The weather was beautiful, so we sat outside. The server was very friendly and efficient. The food was great! We ordered the Fish and chips, halibut and a couple of salads. Everyone was pleased. Expect about $20-$25/person.

“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Wouldn't recommend for a memorable meal - food is average. There are several better choices in the little town of Talkeetna.

“Hidden Jewel - great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

My favorite is the Seafood Mac & Cheese. A great surprise, hunks of Halibit, large Shrimp and scallops, in a cheese sauce that was surprising mild and did not overwhelm the seafood. Other items on the menu that I enjoyed on return visits the open face crab sandwich and the seafood asian salad, and rice bowl with fresh veges.
