Relaxed atmosphere, good food, in this tourist area where that's not always true. It was pleasant to be there and walk the area near the river and through the little town.

I wasn't really thrilled with my meal here. It wasn't bad, but not that great. I think I'd try another place in town first.

It started very strangely--I ordered a glass of wine and was told I couldn't have one because they were out of wine glasses. I've been to places before where they had run out of wine, but never glasses. So I said I was happy to drink out of whatever glasses they had. She finally relented and I got a very... More

Casual dining inside under roof, or choose the outside patio. The staff was friendly and efficient. Clean tables and rest room. A nice place for a quick, casual meal. Choose from a good variety on the menu, from hamburgers, soup to fish. We had the cod fish and chips meal, which was really excellent except the fish portions were not... More

This restaurant seems to be a favourite place to eat, Menu is diversified and therefore something for everyone. It is a small place with a large patio, on cool days it is hard to get a seat inside. The portions are large and the soup is great. We were not disappointed with our choices.

Quick service, nice atmosphere with hand made wooden canoe hanging from the ceiling. We ordered a hamburger to split, glad we did the hamburger was huge. Price was reasonable, after all this is a rural goal mining town. Servers were great and really working hard. There is an outside area where dogs are welcome.

This was our very first time in Dawson City. We happened to be walking by this place, and decided to try it out. We were seated immediately, and our drink order was taken. It took 30 minutes for our drinks to be served after placing our order and 90 minutes for our food to be served. It wasn't like the... More

Really neat restaurant in Front Street. Amazing halibut and salmon. It's fish and chips style but I loved it. Stayed outside on the big patio. I recommend it 100%. Bathrooms needed a clean but that's my only complaint. Waitresses were very cool young people we talked a lot about Dawson.

Thank HarperTse
