I've eaten here several times and love it. Okay, not fine dining. No Michelin stars. Not a foodie's dream destination. It's just food and lots of it. I think it tastes great. I can never finish the huge portions. Gotta love the bear in the...More

Old stone and log rustic atmosphere. Fantastic breakfast of an omelet stuffed with King crab served with cheese on top with a side of hollandaise sauce, home fries and homemade sourdough bread. Awesome!

This is my favorite breakfast place, but all their menu is great. The service is swift and professional, the food always hot, and tasty. I've been eating here for years, and every trip to Anchorage includes this restaurant.

Large portions on breakfast entrees. They will split an entree for you. Our favorites are either bacon or reindeer sausage. Lots of Alaska history on the walls of the dinning rooms. We enjoy taking visiting family and friends here to start our day.
