Essentially a takeaway with a few tables and chairs. Mostly pizza but a few extras like limited Chinese and steak. It is however open late and on Sunday, which is when I called. I ate a pizza inside. Tasty enough, nothing special.

A quick stop for supper after a long day on the Dempster. It's standard grill food, we enjoyed the burger and grilled cheese after a few days of dehydrated meals :) Wouldn't mind trying the pizzas next time.

There is a big menu. Not many vegetarian options so I make up my own Chinese combo. It's hit and miss. Sometimes it's good. Sometimes it's not.

Positives: great hours - open until midnight daily, very friendly staff, conveniently located down-town, Negatives: Expensive; the portions are reasonable but not for the price. Use pre-packaged burger patties -- for a place that advertises themselves as known for their Dempster burger, I would have thought they'd make their own patties (especially since the picture in the menu is a...

The staff was very friendly, the pizza awesome and the prices reasonable for the location! The chicken wings seem small (as do other chicken wings in Inuvik restaurants) but the quantity is much more than what was given at another restaurant! :) In relation to other downtown services in Inuvik, NT, the restaurant decor is average. The back room is... More

Back Room is Cool, Food is way over priced. I had a burger and fries, frozen patty, nothing special. Burgers are way better at the Arena Complex, Homemade at least. Staff was friendly.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. It was the only option open at this time. Besides us there was only one other guest visiting. The ambience was a bit gloomy. The staff was friendly. The pizza we had was good.
