Best fish you will ever have. The chef is great and personable too. Recommend reservations for dinner otherwise enjoy the eclectic ambience.

The food here was exceptional!!! So delicious!!! It is a little pricey; however, their portions are huge...you can easily split a meal!! A place you should definitely visit while in Yellowknife!!

The fish tasted really great - we tried pan fried and deep fried fish and both dish are yummy! While... you may need to wait outside for a while - it took us 15 mins

I had the arctic char with half fries and half salad and it was well worth standing outside in minus 30 weather for (dress warmly in case they are full - their capacity is around 32 people, so those waiting must stand out in the cold). They seem to cook the catch of the day and hand cut their potatoes... More

we were in the old town for a quick visit, and since we didn't have lunch, we decided to have late lunch/dinner at the spot since it was "recommended" by the lady working at one of the tour companies. Even during the non-peak time, there was a long wait (outside of the restaurant) since they don't want people crowding the... More

We arrived at around 4pm and put our name on the list outside to get a table. We were seated just before 5pm (we took turns picking up supplies at the convenience store across the rd to keep warm!). You have to be there where they call your name or your table goes to the next person! The menu had... More

Highly recommend to go at off peak meal time or make a reservation. If you go during meal time without reservations, you better be driving or will be waiting outside in cold for at least 45 minutes. Great fresh food!

A must for great local color and outstanding fish! Hand caught, filetted & cooked the old fashioned way. Served with salad, fries or half & half. Reservations a must!

Food is good, service is very, very slow. Pre dinner bread snacks were scanty on this visit (I have been many times). Fish is usually a best choice, but ask what is fresh and local that day. Location in old town is fantastic, so walk around the area either before or after the meal. If you are walking up to... More
