I had french toast with two eggs and bacon, excellent! My companion raved about her omelet. Friendly safe and right on our way from Anchorage to Denali!

Their breakfast is awesome. Lunch menu is average. Wasn't thrilled with their burgers or pasta dishes. But the halibut sandwich is pretty good. Servers are always friendly.

Very nice local restaurant serving a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items. All orders arrived hot and quickly once we placed our order. Good tasting halibut burgers and Reuben sandwich were very tasty. Definitely worth a return visit to try more of the menu items.

Went here for dinner and was not disappointed. The large menu offers "home-style" cooking, a large variety and home made pies. A good family type restaurant like the name says. I had the chicken fried steak dinner and my wife had an omelet which she said was the best she ever had, and pancake with home fries.. I would return... More

Decent restaurant that has okay service and food. Some menu items are very good, and breakfast is always a safe bet, but other items can be hit-or-miss. I ordered a reuben, which was quite good, and the fries were very good. I did not enjoy the monte cristo, though. The homemade potato salad is a good choice as well. Some... More

My daughter wanted to take two visiting friends to something other than just a chain. This had decent reviews online, so we decided to give it a try. I didn't expect a whole lot, but we were pleasantly surprised. I just got a chili burger, which was big and well cooked. The homemade chili was good, too. One of our... More

People waited 45 min to be seated we waited 1hr and 20 min for an omelet and pancakes that tasted frozen. Go to IHOP instead.

Really good, hearty food in a relaxed setting. Breakfast available all day-and all of it is very good. Sandwiches, soups, chili, halibut baskets that looked wonderful, and not as expensive as restaurants in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Valdez, Kodiak, etc. Easily accessible on Parks Hwy. Going to Talkeetna or Denali? Stop here for an excellent meal at a great price.

Comfortable booths, server by name of Jolene was very accommodating and an excellent server. The menu is a little too big but meals looked fresh. Food is a little different with each cook. Owner lady is very harsh on workers.
