Nice lil place with friendly staff. The photographs around the restaurant and in the halls of the hotel Seward are timeless and wonderful!

Breakfast of biscuits and sausage gravy with eggs was pretty good. Coffee was very good. Service was very good. Dining room is small with 4 or 5 tables and a bar. Located inside Hotel Seward where we stayed, so was convenient.

The food here is superlative. Even if you're not staying in the Hotel Seward, you're missing out if you don't go here to eat.

Couldn't resist ordering the salmon with pasta - proved to be a great choice! My wife ordered the halibut cheeks - also a great choice... A small restaurant, located inside the Hotel Seward...A must find/must dine when you're in Seward!
