My family of 5 had dinner here last night and 4 of us were extremely pleased with our dinners. The salad bar is fresh with nice variety of toppings. The crab legs, which you buy as extras were delicious. Salmon and cod were outstanding. So...More

Food was ok, not worth the price. Ate there on May 20th. Salmon didn't have much taste. Prime rib had a lot of fat.

We learned a little history, enjoyed the local crowd {this was before tourist season], and were happy we went. But the salmon had a heavy sweet sauce, the cod is heavily battered and the crab was delicious but the serving was small.

This was our first time going. Loved the fried cod and crab. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Added bonus of being next to the Pioneer Park. As must of you haven't gone.

Go visit this interesting park. The salmon bake is part of it and the salmon is GREAT! The rest is typical buffet food and not good as you might imagine. Eat all of the salmon you can though!

WE enjoyed the salad bar the most. THe salmon was a little on the dry side but had good flavor, the beef was OK. The baked beans were outstanding.

Don't get too excited. This is a large buffet, where the food is OK, but definitely, nothing exceptional. Judging by other reviews, I wonder if we were there on an off night - the desserts were disappointing and we certainly had better salmon and prime...More

Loved the salmon, crab, fried cod, and everything else. If you get a chance to go, I would highly recommend it.

large buffet with many food choices, good for kids also, plenty of seating inside and outside. bathrooms were not clean and outdated. may not be a good choice for people unable to carry food and stand in lines

Salmon is so good there.... I want more and more and more. And I like their potato salad also. It opens only during the summer but it is worth it to go. Fried halibut, crab, and meat, salads. One price and you eat all you...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
we will be in Fairbanks on Tuesday May 16th. One daughter is a vegetarian and my husband is a vegan. Can they order something else from the menu? Can one just order the salad bar and what types of foods are on that? If so, how much is that? It doesn't make sense to come if they need to pay the full $32.95 and not eat most of the items. Many tx-

It's all you can eat buffet style place. Although there are non meat items it really isn't worth it for just the salad bar, roasted potatoes, and biscuits. For meat eaters it's great: salmon, crab legs, cod, and prime rib.
how much would a 1 yr old be?

We were there on a week night the first week of September and walked right in with no wait. They were busy, but they have a lot of seating.
