“Cheap food, huge portions, but not very good”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Stopped here on a whim and ordered you standard greasy spoon diner fair- eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, and biscuits. The waitress was overworked and didn't have time to help all to customers, the cooks looked dirty and distressed, the kitchen was nasty, and the place was small and cramped. I must admit the food turned out ok and it was the cheapest meal we got while in Seward for the weekend so it can't be all bad, just nothing to write home about. We probably won't be returning.

“fresh seafood, but bland”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had a halibut dinner. It included 5 pieces of lightly-breaded, fried, halibut, potatoes, a little salad. Whie the fish was fresh, the food was kind of tasteless, even the gravy for the mash potato.

I know Alaska is expensive, and halibut is not cheap, but $20 something for fish and mash is high.

“Great food nice local feel”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Waitress was nice but very busy. The place was packed for lunch. We were greeted and got a table right away. Take the time to check out the photos on the wall they are great. Food was very good and reasonably priced for the area.

“Over rated”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Way to expensive for their halibut lunch. Heck you get much more halibut in the lower 48. Was barely done enough because the chunks were to good. Over $45 for 3 people at lunch. Ok I know it's alaska but it is still not worth it. I don't mind paying for good food but hate being ripped off for average or bad food
