Two of us ordered the grilled Chicken Denali, with one of the dishes sporting rubbery chicken skin, the other not, but overall the dish was a nice blend of flavors. Two others ordered the crab cakes that seemed capably made but left no great impression. Flavored generally very good, service quite good, but none of the dishes arrived hot. Has a great location and tourist interest, though, and one could do worse for dinner in Fairbanks.

Had reservation for 10 people. Seated right away and sat indoors. If nice weather, patio is lovely right on the river. Excellent service, great drink menu, lots of fresh seafood choices and local game. Waitress was great at explaining fish and local game selections, as well as where fish was caught. Grilled salmon very good, as well as halibut, although both a tad dry.
Reindeer filet was excellent, very tasty, as well as the bay scallops. Overall, an excellent evening with family! Would recommend this place.

While visiting Fairbanks, we chose to check out the buffet at this restaurant. The decor was nicely "Alaskan". There was certainly enough of a variety of food at the buffet to please anyone. We chose to sit outside on the large deck, and we were glad we did. The views were really nice, and boaters were going by on the river. All in all, a nice place to visit and eat.

We decided to eat in the bar to avoid the wait. The service was great and the food was excellent. A great wine selection and some of the best salmon of our trip. Wish we were staying in Faribanks so we could go back!

I live here and make special trips to the Pump House for their Clam Chowder. Like I said in my title, there are so many pictures and artifacts to look at it kind of like a museum. The one thing I dislike is that it is a open atmosphere and is very loud.
