Very eclectic old time bar. Most the workers were in period costume which was neat. Fascinating old photos on the walls and a very unique history. I missed the brothel tour which I do regret now. Busy place so getting a table can be tough...More

We stumbled across the Res Onion when we were exploring Skagway and decided to take the tour!!! It was a cute tour. Lots of fun. Nothing to daunting or over the top but informative. I suggest it if you have 30 minutes. Why not join...More

Had to have a taste of old Skagway. Great pizza, fun waitress and only good things to say. It seemed the stairs were original . Cool looking while thinking back in time to those years.

This was out final stop on the "Good-time Girls" walking tour. We had the opportunity to visit the upstairs museum area as well as the saloon. An interesting stop.
