Went in recently while on vacation, not knowing really where to go and what to experience we were lucky enough to have Josh as are bartender and server. He made our whole trip easier telling us all the great spots to see, what fish are being caught this time of the year, and even a few bear stories!!! The food was delicious, definitely worth the stop!


The music sucked. I know that because we had to listen to it waiting for our meals. My husband got his meal first. I got my meal at least a half hour later and I’m being nice by saying a half hour. I didn’t like that I couldn’t choose my own beer for the ever flights. They were preselected by them. The beer they selected sucked , no surprise. I do not recommend.

Review is only for the drinks as their kitchen was closed when we went here. The bartender was friendly and knew his stuff! We had one of the whiskey flights (all were good) as well as some beer! We had the Brokentooth Apple, Bawden Street Mark 5, Gummi Bear Trippel and all were pretty solid. Very close to the cruise ship so all we had to do was drink until we had to hop back on!


Ducked in during the rain for lunch. Limited menu, service marginal. Avoid the fish fry at all cost. Fish nonexistent and very expensive for what was provided. The pictures from others were not even close to the meals we received.

Stopped here for a drink on a hot day and very glad we did. We asked for a couple of local beers and decided to have some chicken wings with a very spicey sauce. Have to say the wings were great and the sauce very spicey!!. Service was great with a very lovely server (Tellisha F. we think) who was happy to chat and pass on local information.

Stopped here while in Ketchikan for a few local beers. The food was outstanding! Definitely try the fried cauliflower! Riley was an awesome waitress! The views outside were fantastic too. Check this place out for some great food and even better beers!Vegetarian options: The cauliflower and hummus plate were awesome!

VERY expensive for what you get. For $30, I expected more from the fish and chips. Food was nothing to write home about. The menu was nothing unique, either. We only ate here because we were incredibly hungry and it was close to our ship. We were really hoping to have more legit Alaskan choices, but it was generic, EXPENSIVE bar menu items. Definitely a cruise ship tourist trap. The cider was delicious. The gummy bear beer was gross and expensive. It was really bitter and was $10 for a pint that I didn't even finish. If I ever find myself in Ketchikan again, I will be going elsewhere.

Really nice staff! Best pineapple upsidedown cake ever!! You have to order it 20 minutes before you want it and it is spectacular! It can be shared but I'd get my own!!Food: 5/5

We dined here on June 14 while on a cruise. We were seated immediately, placed our orders, then waited. It’s a small restaurant, but it took a long time to get 3 of 4 of our meals. Mine never came. When everyone was almost done, we told the server to cancel mine, but she said she had to bring it out anyway. I told her that was fine, but I wasn’t going to eat it or pay for it. I was provided bites of the other’s meals, so I didn’t starve. Their meals were good. It's too bad, because it would have been a good review if all our meals had arrived.

Prices were very steep for most items, but then again, I'm sure the bulk it is shipped in as raw ingredients from bigger cities.Staff was friendly & accommodating. They made sure all needs were met. Restaurant was clean, comfortable and appealing.We stopped in to try some local beers and have a light snack. The potato wedges are awesome!

The server blamed the kitchen for the mixups and spent half of his time trying to figure out there ordering system instead of taking care of customers. The hostess never gave us a wait estimate, we just waited on line in the dark. Was across from the cruise ships so has plenty of new customers. Don’t think it would survive if needed repeat customers.

Good service, great selection of beers, very large portions. We easily could have shared our entree.Food: 5/5

Our family lives in Ketchikan and we had others visiting so we had a girls afternoon out in town while the guys were out fishing. After some shopping we stopped at the Bar Harbor for some drinks and light fare. We had beers and marguerites which were good. We shared a plate of fries which were excellent and a plate of Mac n cheese. The cheese sauce was so good but there were very few Macs in the bowl. We used the cheese sauce to dip our fires in. We sat outside right on the pier and watched the world go by.

Great place to have a drink or too. The food looked great but didn’t have enough time to sit for a meal. Tried a few local beers that exceeded expectations. Staff was friendly and helpful. Worth the pop in for a draft.

We were cold and wet and this hit the spot. We had the chicken with beans and onion rings. The BBQ sauces were flavorful and the onion rings so good we ordered more. Local beers on tap with good selection.
