Simply delicious. Never expected to find fine dining at a national park . It was great. I came to Alaska thinking I was going to find amazing salmon everywhere. To my surprise I only found it here.

Really had a great time. We were on a princess cruise and climbed up to the crows nest for drinks and food. We felt like we found the locals spot. Pork chop was exceptional. Thanks to our server CJ.
