We spent 12 days in Alaska, and my plan was to be carted onto the plane ride home in some sort of "fish coma." With the exception of one night when my family wanted to eat something that wasn't fish, all the other days I ate after breakfast, it was some version of halibut or sockeye. After a guided float trip down the Kenai, we swung on into Gwin's, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of their halibut. It was very, very good. Service was also great. If you are going by this place any time during lunch or dinner and like well prepared fish, do yourself a favor and stop in. You won't be disappointed.
Do not miss dinner at Gwins, the halibut tacos are awesome!!! The service is outstanding, thank you Janice for an outstanding experience, we had a great time and the Alaskan beer is great!! This is a must for your visit to Cooper Landing, Alaska.
Great food after the Russian River Falls hike. Family friendly and great service. Burgers, fish, and carrot cake were great. I will add this to our drive from Anchorage to Kenai. The dining room got busy at dinner time, but cycled tables fast.
We stopped here for a late lunch/early dinner after a long day of fishing. The outside was charming and only expected bar food, but we were pleasantly surprised with the menu. We had a fantastic waiter who made recommendations and answered our questions and provided excellent service. The food was exceptional with salads, burgers, and desserts. We truly enjoyed our meal and would recommend this restaurant to everyone! There is also a souvenir/supply store and a liquor store, both next to the restaurant.
I reviewed the cabin separately under Gwin's Lodge. The restaurant looked like a bar from the outside, so I was a little nervous. However, they gave us vouchers for staying in the cabin, and I'm so glad they did. My daughter and I liked having fresh salads after all of the bar foods offered everywhere else (great croutons on the Caesars). Everything we tried having dinner there for 2 days was good (burger, chicken sandwich, reindeer dog, fries, salads). The service was good. They also have a coffee & crepe stand around the corner that is slower service and high priced, but their crepes are excellent. Everything in Alaska is expensive, so expect to pay more. Burger and fries $14-$18, chicken sandwich and fries $16, 1/2 salad $6, mushroom and turkey crepe $14, Nutella banana crepe $9. The crepes are made on the spot, so they take time. I kept wanting the crepes again throughout our trip.…
