Friendly people. Generous portions. Had the fish and chips. Typical frozen fish. Served piping hot. I wanted to try something different in Inuvik and now I have. Seems like a locals place.

Chinese food was horrible. But the pizzas were good. Open till midnight is good for travelers. Particularly when after trip if one reaches Inuvik after 10 pm, except Roost nothing remains open.

We had dinner at the roost and of all the restaurants in Inuvik this would be the one I would go back to. The service was good and the food portions were generous and I thought the prices were reasonable.

Essentially a takeaway with a few tables and chairs. Mostly pizza but a few extras like limited Chinese and steak. It is however open late and on Sunday, which is when I called. I ate a pizza inside. Tasty enough, nothing special.

A quick stop for supper after a long day on the Dempster. It's standard grill food, we enjoyed the burger and grilled cheese after a few days of dehydrated meals :) Wouldn't mind trying the pizzas next time.
