My brothers have been going to Haines for the past 7 falls to fish and this is the first trine they cam across this restaurant tucked away in town in a house. You’ll probably have to ask around if you want to find it as one of your stops in Haines.

The food menu is interesting and varied and the overall experience the 6 of us had was their food was good but not on the lower price point scale. The server was very friendly and helpful if you wanted recommendations for the food or wine list.

They shutdown for the season at the end of September so some things you’d normally be able to order we unavailable when we were there in late September.

We really expected more from this place, due to the rave reviews. The atmosphere inside is very nice and the service was excellent. The food was the disappointment. Shared the halibut enchiladas and a Caesar salad. There didn't appear to be any dressing on the Caesar at all (not that we wanted a lot, just enough to detect). And the enchiladas were burnt on the ends and on the bottom, and the halibut was dry. Sadly a waste of a great fish. As I said, the service is great though. Seems like they just need to do a little work on the consistency of their food.

Get here early in the summertime if you want a seat on the front porch. We sat inside because we arrived only a few minutes after opening. Nice but not as nice as the porch. :-). Anyway, food and service were both wonderful. I highly recommend the mussels and salmon cakes.

Fantastic food, service and location is very scenic. Homemade cookies, fresh baked bread and speciality coffees along with kombucha and edible flowers is just a glimpse into their unique menu. I’m so looking forward to returning.

Great food, great view. Highly recommend it. BLT, breakfast taco and breakfast salad were wonderful.
