Came into on a Holland America cruise, but that's another review. This restaurant was way overpriced, and if the people running it are the owners, then they have no idea how to run a business. No people skills whatsoever, very poor service, it would have been better to eat on the ship. $25 for 2 crablegs is a but overboard. I highly recommend you eat elsewhere.

The halibut was over cooked, we sent it back and the second one was still over cooked. The fried cod looked and tasted like it had come out of a freezer bag. The salmon was good, the pizza was the best thing anyone in our party of 7 ordered. The crab leg was terrible. Overall, over priced and terrible food, amazing view though.

The King Salmon was tasty, but the ravioli was crap.

Halibut cooked just right, king crab to die for, best salad bar on the island....! A delightful place to have dinner. The picture windows give way to a fantastic view of Sitka Sound and all the picturesgue islands dotting the coast of the island. Right our there is a dormant volcano, Mt. Edgecumbe, in all her glory.....

My husband & I were touring the Alaskan Inside Passage via the Silver Shadow cruise ship & Sitka was one of our stops. We had researched restaurants in Sitka, & Van Winkle was listed as an excellent stop. We agreed 100% w/the rating. We had the Smoked Salmon Chowder & it was heavenly. It was very rich without the heavy feeling of rich chowder. Great ambiance & friendly atmosphere. Would definitely return on my next trip. Service was excellent & staff very friendly.

Thank CLsuz
