I like to stop in for a beer at this local neighborhood bar. Lots of locals and fisherman here. Pool tables, darts, two TV's and lots of atmosphere.

Absolutely loved this place. Adored the owner even though he bought us a duck fart. Learned that was a native Alaska shot. He shared lots of history and cultural information. Better than Ramon!

My wife and some friends of ours visited Ernie's Old Time Saloon in Sitka Alaska last week, and had a great time as we stepped back in history. The Saloon brings back memories of the old days, the way Bars, and Saloons, used to be....More
