Best value for the dollar in Ketchikan. We ate breakfast early twice before going out to fish. Huge portions and I'm a big eater, satisfied my hunger until the late afternoon. The food and service were good.

We visited the Pioneer on our first morning in Alaska. The breakfast was brilliant, and we were both sure that we wouldn't manage to finish it all. We were wrong.

We had both breakfasts(2) and dinner here. The breakfast is unbelievable. The portions are quite large; the pancakes are HUGE! Try the HOuse Club for lunch or dinner; VERY good. The website says 'open at 6AM'. Actually the are open almost 24/7; they close 10PM...More

Halibut and chips what a disappointment. Two very small over fried pieces of halibut about as dry as cardboard. Service took forever even though there was only 12 people in the place. High prices, poor service and low quality food.

Ate at this cafe twice during my stay. Enjoyed both meals. Not a fancy location, it caters to mainly the Ketchikan residents more so than the cruise traffic. Just Good Food.

Great location with typical diner type food. Good portions, but the prices seemed high but everything in Ketchikan is high. One morning we had to wait for a table because they were so busy.

I read reviews that said the prices were high but the portions made it worth it. That was not my experience. The prices were high and the portions were small and the food was nor where near exceptional.

Short walk from the port, we really enjoyed the bfast (get the stuffed hashbrowns) the only problem was when we got home we noticed an extra $25 charge, I think they entered the tip in wrong, but we couldn't find our receipt to fight it.....More
