Family trip, had the Belgium waffles and the "Marks omelette". All was extremely tasty and presentation was beautifully done! Fresh taste and the service was wonderful. Took a bit of time to get our food since we ordered 4 dishes and there's only one cook who is also the waiter, but well worth it!

There's something about tourist towns (particularly harbour tourist towns) and producing over-priced, underwhelming food. That's not the case at Mrs Gene's. And the beers are great!

We and another couple at supper and breakfast Labor Day Weekend. The food was out of this world great. My filet was cooked just EXACTLY the way I ordered it and it melted in my mouth. The other dishes ordered by our group were GREAT also. We would have eaten there again but we needed to move on to other... More

We went here for dinner and really enjoyed thus lovely place. They have a couple of small and nicely decorated rooms, but we stayed in in main one. The bartender was very friendly and the rib-eye steak with mushrooms and mashed potatoes was excellent. Much better than they highly recommend Chinooks were we ate the day before!

Our party of four was staying at the Seward hotel and went to Mrs Genes for breakfast. It is small and dark. Our server was friendly yet busy and unable to accommodate details like coffee refills. The breakfast basics are offered and the portions are large. No speciality items or homemade baked goods.

I had the scrambled eggs with reindeer sausage. It was quite tasty & the eggs were very moist. Everything on the breakfast menu looked good. There are several themed dining rooms although I sat in the front bar room. It's quaint downtown Seward.

We had breakfast at Mrs. Genes Place during our stay at Hotel Seward. It was rated well and previous comments were in line with our experience. While the small restaurant was crowded that morning and it seemed there were few wait staff, the food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time. Everything was nicely prepared and the crab omelet... More

Pretty average evening meal, not very impressive, and relatively expensive. Breakfast was better but again not included in the daily rate.

Had breakfast there with a party of six. Kind of wondered about the seating after seeing how small the dining area was but to my surprise they had additional seating in the historical portion of the Hotel Seward. Was seated promptly with coffee and orange juice. Menu was simple with about five choices but very well chosen/healthy choices. Ordered the... More
