“Undercooked burgers, friendly service”
Review of Clove Hitch Cafe

Clove Hitch Cafe
Ranked #4 of 7 Restaurants in Gustavus
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Imagine you are the only restaurant in a town where most guests eat at the lodge/inn where they are staying. It's hard to make it, so we decided to have lunch there on our departure day while waiting for our Alaska flight ot Juneau. We ordered a couple of burgers and Angry Orchard ciders. Burgers were HUGE - 6 ounces I think - and came with a side of fries. Unfortunately they were underdone but we had plenty just eating around the sides. If you, like us, want to support the local Gustavus restaurant economy rather than Aramark and aren't able to get a reservation at one of the inns we might recommend trying the coffee shop next to the Clove Hitch which seems to have good coffee, some soups and light meals.

This is the community cafe at the four corners. Good food. A surprisingly varied menu. Friendly service. It is where the locals go.

We ate a couple of dinners here during our stay in Gustavus. The halibut and chips were quite good...some of the best French fries I have had ever. We weren't able to sample the daily specials because we don't eat dairy foods but they sounded interesting. The menu otherwise is basic burgers and pizza, well executed. Reasonable prices.

Friendly service and great food. We ate at least two lunches and once for dinner--all good. Menu selections were diverse with interesting specials each day.
