The fried cod was amazing. the homemade salad dressing was over the top. I also had the Artic Char (on another visit) cooked on the grill and the seasoning and flavor was one of the best meals I had in Yellowknife.

Funky atmosphere, writings and pictures all over the walls and the ceiling, great fish and down-to-earth service. Maybe a tad pricey, but otherwise a place not to miss.

We stayed in Yellowknife over Christmas and ended up eating here twice. There was a limited menu, but that was no issue as the stew was delicious and the fish and chips were fantastic. I would recommend making a reservation as the restaurant was very popular, there was no room to wait for a table inside and so folk were... More

It came highly recommended for it's fresh local fish (right from Great Slave Lake) and it did not disappoint. We tried the whitefish, lake trout and cod and each were delectable.

Great atmosphere and food nice, but not as good as we expected. Felt it was a bit overpriced. You can write on the walls, tables etc and read what others have written, quirky.

Great food, great staff, great view, great ambiance. Try it, but be ready to pay for it. Heaping amounts of freshly baked bread complement the just caught fish from Great Slave Lake. Does not get any better!
