We were told this was the place for lunch in the area. What a surprise! It doesn't look like a INN or Restaurant from the outside. Once inside with a friendly greeting from the waitress and then the Burger & Hand Cut Fries (WOW!!!). Soooo good & so far out of the way. Just a really neat Alaska experience not... More

Not much out that way but the food was hot and fresh and big portions for the price. We had the chicken tenders and fries. Great ranch as well. The atmosphere was cute and the waitress was sweet although she seemed a bit unhappy with the way the older lady (maybe manager) was treating her. Worth a stop to fill... More

Had not planned on eating here. In fact , didn't even notice it at first until a friend pointed out that he was hungry and wanted to check it out. It was about lunch time. The sign at the door said wait to be seated but there was nobody around except a couple at a table who seemed as confused... More

We went into Copper Center to look for a bathroom, and then found this restaurant. So I ordered a few dishes because we were going to use their bathroom. But when the food came out, they were delicious! I have to say it is one of best restaurants we went in Alaska. The service was a little bit slow, since... More

The food was good and the portions were generous. We ate there 3 times in 2 days. There isn't much too choose from in the area so this was a pleasant surprise.

The restaurant was great, loved the atmosphere and delicious food, outdoor seating was wonderful too! Make sure to check out the two little cabins next door that they've turned into museums. Very interesting history in this area. We didn't stay at the Inn, spent the night at Lakeside B&B Cabin nearby. Copper Center is definitely a good little spot to... More

My boyfriend and I decided to drive from Girdwood to Valdez for the weekend. We knew it was a long drive for a short amount of time, so we wanted to make the most of it. When we found this restaurant on the way, we were so excited. It has a good atmosphere and the food coming out of the... More

More rustic and basic than many will be used to, but provided filling and tasty food at a fair price. 4x large burger and fries cost $60 including tip. Nice alternative to hotel food.

My husband and I always stop-by for a burger every time we are fishing the Klutina. The cheeseburgers and patty melt are outstanding! Adding fresh jalapeños to the burgers is one of our favorite sides. And service at the restaurant is great too. We took our parents there for a one night stay on our way to Valdez this year....
