Obviously only concerned about his tables and tips. Disappointing as its about the pub not the tips. gad a great Cheese burger with beer battered... More

Came in and sat down immediately. Ordered a few burgers, soups, sandwiches and salads. Had the caribou burger and it was good. Salads were also filling. It was a slow day and weather was getting colder. Not too many places were open. But was satisfying.

Nothing wrong with the place, low end pub with decent burgers. We went because it was highly rated and we were slightly disappointed. Burger was okay, my husband's caribou burger was decent. Server got my drink wrong and acted like she was slammed, even though we were one of three tables seated at the time. Didn't fail us, we got... More

Went to this little place for lunch. We shared the caribou burger, chili and a salad. Very filling. The server was super nice and silly. We had a good time here. The burger was great and hit the spot. Price not too bad which was great for us budgetters.

So unfortunately we did not get to meet Stubbs but we did meet Denali ;) I felt very welcomed, and the service was friendly. We ordered the wings and I had the Jalapeño Bacon burger. Everything we ate was pretty... More

Thought we would try the halibut fish and chips. We visited AK in the summer and experienced amazing halibut fish and chips in Ketchikan and Juneau. Well this time was a huge bust. The management should be ashamed to charge $20 for one piece of very dry halibut PROBABLY 4" x 1 1/2" that was not prepared In the traditional... More

I eat at the west rib every time I am in town. I love the burgers and a nice cold Ice Axe. However, the staff could be a little nicer. I get it, I am in no way a local but I should be treated kindly though. Every time I come in it seems that the staff just gets ruder... More

This is a nice spot to sit and people watch while enjoying good food. With plenty of shopping, all within walking distance, you will not forget Talkeetna.
