“Poor service and average food”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The restaurant ambience was really good. However, our server was really poor and never around when we need her service. When we placed our order, she wasn't smiley at all and have the sulken look. The bread provided was cold just like the butter. We order St Louis Ribs, Prime Ribs and Salmon Shrimp pasta. The food was average and not worth the price. The Salmon shrimp pasta sauce was delicious but the salmon and shrimp was overcooked, when we feedback to our server there was no initiative for a reserving of the food. Which was really disappointing.

“A nice place to have a good Alaskan Dinner”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I've had the good fortune of being treated to dinner here a few times last spring and was very impressed with the food and service! Nice Alaskana atmosphere as well.

“Very good food, local brews.”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

The seafood is great! Chowder is a nice starter if you are hungry, otherwise it can be a meal by itself. Decor is interesting with lots of local memorabilia. Service was excellent, very attentive staff. Local beers are on tap. Definitely worth a stop.

“Great service”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

We took a large family to breakfast today (9) total. Aging from baby to grandparents. Had reservation seated immediately. Server took our drinks right away and noticed one of the grandmothers was cold and brought her hot water as a hand warmer. One of the owners was walking the floor for most of the time we were there. Food was good and refilled quickly. Was great to have great service and great food..

“Excellent food and bar in Fairbanks”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The bar is a comfy place with a large deck and another large area with screens for nights when it is buggy. The interior is rustic with wild pieces. The food is very good, lots of fish and beef and chicken. Prices are high for a large family. It is a great place and worth a visit. Oh , yes, it sits on a river, nice view.
