Cool place to stop and a legendary local landmark. Wish we had gotten there a little earlier in the evening so we’d have had more time to enjoy.

This is a very interesting restaurant. There are dollar bills all over the walls and ceiling encouraging you to return for a drink. There is free wifi as well. Didn’t notice many people eating but there were a lot of drinks on the table.

It's is fairly close to the Land's End Resort. Ask anyone in town and they will be able to tell you. It is a dive bar, and an Alaskan monument.
