My father-in-law and I booked a busy afternoon in Talkeetna. We had about 1 hour in between adventures so we wanted to sit down and relax. There are not a whole lot of options in town close to where K2 is and the bus for the Mahay jet boat picks you up. The service was friendly and quick. The food... More

We were WOWed by the food at the last Taste of Talkeetna here, so came back for a meal. We ordered the coconut shrimp for an appetizer-excellent and 6 of them!. Hubby had the halibut-good size portion. I had the chicken stir fry-yummy! And local beers on tap! What else could you ask for!

The prices are slightly higher than other restaurants in Talkeetna, but the food is very good, and nicely prepared. The restaurant is small, and if you are there in the summer reservations are recommended.

While the food was tasty they were out of several things on the menu. I ordered the filet kebab and there was no kebab to it. The only veggies served which would have been on it were peppers. No onions or mushrooms.

The fish burger was delicious. The hospitality was great. And the atmosphere was outstanding. We opted to eat out on the patio and it was a cloudless day. What a treat to "people watch".

We went for the fish tacos. They were tasty but overpriced for what you got. I didn't price the other eateries in the area, so this might be the going rate, but wasn't impressed with the portions.

We caught a salmon on a Phantom Tri-River Charger and it was suggested we take our salmon to this Bistro -what a marvelous concept. For $15 they cooked one salmon and provided two sides. Others in our party had sandwiches, but sent their soup back (too bland).

We happened to be staying in the Chinook WindCabins which were pretty much across the street from this restaurant. So convenient! Also as you are driving North on the Talkeetna Spur Road, they are the first restaurant on the left as you reach town. If traveling by rail road, they are right across the street from the rail station. They... More

Food was excellent and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. She steered us toward some excellent dishes including the halibut burger and the crab cakes.
