My second visit on my second trip through Fairbanks. Both times it was a vibrant environment with good service and good food and wine. I wouldn't call it "Alaskan" but good for a nice evening out.

Reliably good food, great variety, daily specials. I am not a wine drinker, but the variety and number of wines available is impressive. The bar does a great job on the drinks, and my favorite appetizer is the calamari. It's tender and tasty with a...More

Good bar and dining area. A little pricey, but the food was worth it, plus it's probably the best place in town to eat.

Atmosphere is nice--warm and bustling, and my dinner was good (scallops w/ spinach...), but my three friends' meals were so-so to bad (large apple chunks in salad and very overcooked salmon with a strange "hash-brown-like" crust).

The ambiance was nice but a bit noisy. The food was attractively prepared but nothing special. My dish was certainly plentiful but unimaginative

Super busy, even at 11pm - but enjoyed wine and beer, and delicious appetizers. Staff was friendly and professional. Very good!

We will be open on Christmas Eve but not on Christmas Day and we only open at 4:30. We are hosting our 18th annual New Years Eve Party on the 31st and it is always a hugely good time. Hope to see you there. Frank, Owner

Hi Chinablue48, We most definitely serve fresh seafood all summer long. As far as shell fish goes, I would highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab legs. They're scrumptious. We also have fresh Alaskan oysters and clams on... More
