We walked in and was told by the bar staff to take a seat and someone would be with you. So we did. After waiting 10 minutes and then seeing someone else shown to a table and offered menus, I decided to get up and...More

We were told by our 1st Alaska tour guide, Tony, that this place was not to be missed. We ordered the combo plate and one other dinner and it fed 4 adults! Great price and good beer, too.

Was missing southern barbeque. Thought I would try this restaurant. Yummy. St Louis ribs with sweet bbq sauce so good that I had to go back before I left town. Baked beans are perfect too, not very Spicey, but nice molasses taste

Friendly place notwithstanding the "biker" motifs. Food standard/good. Worth the walk from center city (10 minutes). What you expect from a BBQ place. Nothing more or less. Friendly staff. Would recommend a visit.

I never knew I would find such great ribs in Alaska. Great and friendly service and the Alaska Ale was fantastic. A must stop if ever in the neighborhood.
