Stopped here on our way from Homer to Anchorage for late lunch. We both had halibut nuggets, one with onion rings and one with a salad, equally good. The beer was good and cold too.

We had a good dinner there. Get there early so they don't run out of anything. When we got there at 8pm, they were out of ribs. The halibut nuggets were great.
