We very much enjoyed dinner at Thorn's. Fun atmosphere with the bourbon decanters on display. Also enjoyed the live music.

Had a terrific meal. Great service, great food, and we just loved the interior. A step back to another era. Highly recommend.

Had a late evening snack of halibut bites and a beer. Fun people watching too. Very good collection of strange booze bottles

Salty fisherman, quirky locals all found at this bar. Beer selection is good and cocktails are mixed great. Food is classic Alaska americana. Seafood, burgers and appetizers.

The room was crazy wild with every imaginable decorator bottle of Jim Beam. It was cool to see the collection and recognize some from my granny's personal collectibles. The Halibut was awesome and the Ice Tea was perfect.

If you like time travel, stop in at least for a beer. We did not eat but saw some halibut go by on plates that looked delicious.

A local recommended this place to us as a place they frequent. What a great tip! The chowder was great, and the bucket of butts (halibut) was the best! An interesting place.
