Excellent menu and everything we had was excellent. Lived up to the ratings. Service was slow. Wine selection was Superb. Would have been 5+ except for service.

My wife and I went to dinner here. Wasn’t really looking for a huge dinner. The menu has a good variety of dishes, wines and beers. To my wife’s delight they had a local wheat beer, her favorite. I haven’t had good fish and chips...More

Had a great time here, the menu was great. We had the clams, and if you like beef, the prime rib was melt in your mouth good

This place is packed every night. Nice bar . The food is classic late 90s. Ie cold seasonal veggies, mashed potatoes, protein & over sauced or over simplified. If this is your thing or you are staying at the hotel this is a good fallback...More

Had the best meal in Fairbanks at the restaurant: oysters on the half shell, and scallops. The wine list is quite extensive and service was very prompt. It is on the expensive side, but worth it!

We will be open on Christmas Eve but not on Christmas Day and we only open at 4:30. We are hosting our 18th annual New Years Eve Party on the 31st and it is always a hugely good time. Hope to see you there. Frank, Owner

Hi Chinablue48, We most definitely serve fresh seafood all summer long. As far as shell fish goes, I would highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab legs. They're scrumptious. We also have fresh Alaskan oysters and clams on... More
