“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

What a nice surprise. This restaurant not only has a great view in the river but also friendly staff (William was extremely nice to us) and fresh seafood! Would go back, definitely!

“Lovely outdoor area on river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

Combination bar and restaurant. Not very attractive inside, but has huge windows overlooking porches and river.
Friendly service. Lots of fish entrees,especially salmon. Well prepared. Uninteresting vegetables,but not over cooked, at least! Shared a good Creme brûlée .
Very pleasant spot,out of town on Chena River.

“Outdoor seating!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed the outdoor seating by the river. Waitress was sure friendly. Seafood chowder was full of potatoes and not served hot...luke warm and overpriced. We split the salmon special which was very tasty but again was luke warm and not served hot. Sangria was nice and sweet. Outdoor seating filled up fast.

“Good Fish Dinners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

The only reason we didn't give it Five Stars was because we felt the prices were a little on the high side, especially when you consider the fish is caught locally. I mean, Alaska is the fishing capital of the world for salmon, isn't it? The atmosphere was nice, the food delicious, the selection extensive, but a little on the pricey side.

“Good Food Beautiful View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

We arrived here for a late lunch around 3:00 so had the place practically to ourselves. It was a basic sorta "bar-food" menu, burgers, salads, etc. I had the salmon and it was fine. Server was very friendly and accommodating and really seemed to know her local Alaska beers!
