I enjoyed the homey feel...the service was great. Staff warm and attentive. My cheeseburger was disappointing. The meat had firm pieces of something...not sure....the lettuce was chopped and squished in mayo to hold it all together..Would prefer a lettuce leaf or 2.....Didn't really care for the skinny fries. Probably not going back.

I have eaten before and enjoyed it thoroughly, I came back and loved it even more! I came on a Sunday afternoon at about 2:00 pm. I tried every dish in my party and -wow!- they were fantastic. I wouldn't recommend getting a burger (the burger was great, though) because the other sandwiches were out of this world. I had... More

The bucket of shellfish (I forgot what it's called) was fantastic. Generous amount of mussels, clams, crab legs, potatoes, and corn. The servers were very helpful as well. Only good things to say about this place.

I've been to this lovely historic restaurant several times and ordered several different dishes. Everything I've ever had has been delicious. Beautiful presentation of the food, great service, and cozy setting. We love this place!

A great locals hang-out, where you can tell the regulars are greeted by name. Friendly folks and reindeer sausage made it a great stop for the cheapest meal I had while in Alaska, which means it cost double what my PA diner costs.

We tried several fish restaurants in Seward and the Inn Cafe seafood bucket was by far the best. So good in fact my husband was sorry he had the steak and wants to return to try one.

I have never had anything to eat that wasn't delicious. The service is great, atmosphere amazing and if you like history you should check that out too. This building was the Teacher's Dormatory when the Colony was settled in the 30s. Take some time to learn about the history while your there.

This place has the best ribeye in the Valley hands down. The mussels are awesome too! Always fast and great service...just wish they had beer on tap. They do have beer in the bottle though. Their Sunday brunch is unbeatable as well!
