Under new management, lunch choices are limited. Our old favorites of halibut tempura and general's chicken were not available. We were met at the door by an enthusuastic waitress, seated, brought menus and water and then waited and waited to give our orders. Finally, a different waitress took our order. She failed ro ask if we would like the soup... More

I have eaten here at least twice a week since visiting Eagle River. I have had their sushi and the General Thai. My boyfriend orders the same thing every time, the General Thai. The atmosphere inside is so refreshing, and the amazing staff are quick and friendly. The sushi is up there in my top 5!!! One of THE cleanest... More

The food here is always good. The curry is great and I love the fried rice. I don't eat fish, but my family members really like the sushi. Service is always good too.

Fast service, good food, huge parking lot. Sushi made fresh on site custom as you order. The last time I visited I had the pork fried rice. Large portion and quite possibly the best I have had anywhere.

They are more of a fusion restaurant and don't specialize in sushi. Their sushi was a just bit above par.

Sushi is delicious and the service is always exceptional. McKinley and Faire Oaks rolls are my family's absolute favorite. They also make a stellar ocean breeze salad and have great miso soup. Dining area is like your typical sushi restaurant-nice relaxed atmosphere, great for casual dining or days night. Definitely your best option for takeout in Eagle River.

I've eaten at Shines a few times now and have found the food to be so delicious and the prices to be very reasonable, which is saying something considering how much everything costs in Alaska. I'm from the East Coast originally and have had a hard time finding Asian food here that I truly like. There is just something different... More

Prices are relatively high and quality, and freshness of sushi/seafood is not as good as it used to be prior to moving to its new location. Current ambience is nice and they did a fairly good job with the decor, aside from the brass glass lights that do not harmonize with the Japanese theme. Families and couples frequent this place...

The food was good. My friend, who recommended Shines, said it was the best Asian restaurant on the area. The food was good but service was very slow. We had to ask for water, tea, a doggie bag, and the check. We had the lettuce cup wraps as the appetizer. They were already put together with no sauce. I wanted... More
