This was a destination spot---a little bit of a drive out of Palmer, but worth every minute. The restaurant is settled in a beautiful place, surrounded by mountains, and large windows allow perfect views. The menu is creative and features Alaskan food, expertly prepared. Our...More

Many things to like about this end of the road restaurant. Number one is the view. The service was also attentive. However, the food was a disappointment. With a limited menu, they had several items that were not available, starting with the bread and olive...More

Beautiful drive, quite scenic, amazing views from the deck or the restaurant itself. If you're looking for something different and delicious, this is it. We had the rib eye with roasted potatoes and veggies, perfectly done. The flatbread appetizer and olives were great too. Very...More
