One truth about Alaska is that the people there are truly thrilled to have tourists eat and stay there. Gwennies is no exception. We took a party of 10 here on a Sunday morning and each and every one of us had a great meal....More

You would think with such a limited menu they could cook a decent hamburger but NO! It is a frozen patty heated up. And the fries must be a worse frozen product than Oreida. Not real French fries, in other words. Maybe a person should...More
