Claims to offer fare similar to what was served on the riverboats. I'm not sure if that's true, but we did have some interesting combinations. Good good, good service, nice view.

This was our second time at this restaurant. First time wasn't great but always give them a second chance. We waited 20 minutes before we ordered a drink and that was after asking the busgirl to send the waitress over. They ran out of 4 different types of beer. Apparently they only stock 6 of anything. Blamed other tables for... More

My husband and I found this restaurant while on holidays from Australia. The prices are slightly high but we had a really nice dinner, good service in pleasant surrounds. The Strip sirloin was beautifully cooked as was the seafood linguine. We had a great bottle of white wine. It made up for the absence of the Aurora Borealis which we... More

This is a restaurant with a great atmosphere: smart without being pretentious and friendly but also very professional. Delicious food and a menu with variety. Strongly recommended.

We had a lovely dinner here the other week. The service was top-notch but the food was average. We had scallops to start, which were ok and then we both had steaks, which although tasty and tender considering the grizzle, were not in alignment with the pricing. We should have brought up the how the steak was grizzly and seemed... More

The wheelhouse never fails to deliver outstanding service and a delicious menu. Although it features a slightly higher price point, it's worth every cent. It's decor is involved enough to give you something new to look at every time you're there, but not so involved that it's tacky. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our meals here in a nice setting. We walked down a nice pathway along the river from the visitor center. We enjoyed the Arctic Char, with a nice dish of veggies. We also enjoyed a tasty seafood pasta dish. Great host, friendly welcome and a good job by all of the staff. We shared a bourbon chocolate torte... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on our way back from an adventure in Atlin B.C and were happy to drop in on Jazz Wednesday. Wonderful live music really complimented the fine meal and created great ambiance. I had the rack of lamb that was delicious and Lemon meringue cheese cake for desert(yum). We all finished the meal with... More

We decided to go to the Wheelhouse for supper on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews and pleased that we did. Staff were great, menu nicely varied, decor nice, and both food and service was wonderful. My wife is a Vegetarian and they customized a dish for her. I had a Bison Shepards pie that was delicious, well presented, and... More

When we want a nice meal in a relaxed atmosphere with good service, we go to the Wheelhouse. The menu is interesting and includes as many local food items as possible. Most of the food is very good but it is not inexpensive. It's worth it if you want to eat good food in a nice, relaxed ambiance and plan... More
