Burgers and fries were delicious. Ordered the champ, which is a mushroom and Swiss with grilled onions and it was cooked just right this time. Beer battered fries were very good as always. One of the better places in Soldotna for a good burger.

A varied menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sports bar venue. We had the haddock which was good. Prices were higher than in other places for all menu items. The haddock was $27 with fries. Good selection of beer on tap. Very nice staff.

Stopped here on our way from Homer to Anchorage for late lunch. We both had halibut nuggets, one with onion rings and one with a salad, equally good. The beer was good and cold too.

Good halibut! The clam chowder was tasty, but a bit pasty thick. The burger was passable, but not the best. Good Caesar salad. Service was pretty good, not great.
