Very good food uniquely prepared. Fresh ingredients, locally harvested! For some reason the service to our table was slow, but I think it was uniquely so. It was a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the good food!

We fully expected this Alaska vacation would be about the sights and not the tastes, so we dialed down our culinary expectations. Were we wrong! The trip delivered tasty discoveries from north to south, and none better than dinner at 229, located just minutes from...More
