“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Possibly the best happy hour menu in town! All appetizers are half off at the bar from 9 pm until they close. Their wine menu is ok but we usually go there for the beer. They get their beer from the Brewhouse and always have a good selection on tap. Very nice bar to spend time with friends or go on a date.

“Everything on the menu was amazing!!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We came in at 5:30 with a party of 12 without a reservation. We were seated in about 10 minutes. Stephanie was our server and I would bring her home with us--she was precious and very knowledgable about the menu. Every dish that came to our table was great! The Caesar salad was amazing. I resisted dessert, but had an caffe mocha! Delicious!

“A wonderful Alaskan experience”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Last night we had dinner here - very warm, clean and welcoming. Great staff who were very helpful, our waitress was great. But the pitter patter we received and thought unique to us was repeated at other tables.

Wonderful squid, great Salmon and portions which were more than adequate .

Great range of wine including a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - Nobilo's

Excellent range of beers
