Half atmosphere, Half amazing food. Best place in yellowknife hands down. Be sure to write your name on the wait list, take a wander if there is a wait and come back. Baked fresh breads delicious. Simple menu, large portions.

This is a must do. Arctic Char that was amazing, and I usually never pick fish. Fries good, atmosphere fun, decor so rustic and interesting and staff with just the right kind of sass and good advice. We loved it!

We were so impressed with our fish!!! We had the deep fried Arctic Cod! It melted in our mouths. It was the best we've ever had. Very large portions too!

The food here is amazing. The fish is caught daily and is pretty much as fresh as you can get in a restaurant. The only issue is the long wait. If you're super hungry, get here early or late.
