I like to stop in for a beer at this local neighborhood bar. Lots of locals and fisherman here. Pool tables, darts, two TV's and lots of atmosphere.

This is a real flashback to what bar life was like quite a few years ago. The beer is cold and the service very good. Although we aren't smokers it is worth noting that because of a town by law you are able to smoke...More

My wife and some friends of ours visited Ernie's Old Time Saloon in Sitka Alaska last week, and had a great time as we stepped back in history. The Saloon brings back memories of the old days, the way Bars, and Saloons, used to be....More

The downtown area is not huge, and lots of traffic, but it is doable. There are many places on the main strip. P Bar is a must. It is very local. West mark, Dock Shack, Ernie's, and Halibut Point Crab & Brew are all good... More
