View out the windows is pretty sweet, with planes and cruise ships providing character. Tables themselves are just okay though, and the upstairs is kinda ghetto. Service was friendly but kind of ditzy about the beer list. Passed on a couple of draft options in favour of bottles mostly because I wasn’t sure what we were going to get... Decent modest selection of Alaskan and PNW products. Nachos were decent though absolutely drowned in toppings (which was a mixed blessing/curse).
A decent pub space on the water. The place was fairly busy when we stopped in and I expected slow service but even with that mindset I was disappointed in the time it took for each step to take place. Server was friendly and the place seemed well understaffed. A few Alaskan brews I hadn’t seen elsewhere, other than that normal micros, albeit good ones. A solid option for a pint before getting back on your cruise ship.
Been here a couple times, I guess I better say something.
Wow, what a crowded place in the sleepy part of tourist season in Juneau. My wife and I didn’t know we were supposed to have reservations the first time we went, so eventually we made it back on a Saturday night. Next time, I’ll take my 3 year old as he’ll fit it in with his loudness.
There was a pretty good selection of top notch Northwest brews.
The service was pretty good as busy as they were, my wife and I got our food in a pretty good amount of time.
The food was very good as I had this sesame citrus salmon which was absolutely awesome with a Stone IPA, boy oh boy that was exceptional.
The value, well, its downtown Juneau in the off season, so what does one expect? I will still be back.
Great spot for food that attracts tourists and locals alike. Respectable tap list, but nothing out of the ordinary. Go for the halibut tacos and the view from the wharf.

Popped in for a pint and a peek. Decent enough selection, about 12-15 taps and 50 or so bottles when I was there. Alaskan brews on tap, a couple of Midnight Sun brews in bottles, and a variety of not-hard-to-find-elsewhere micros. Didn’t try the food.
Visited late on a Tuesday afternoon in September, this very cool setting has a rich history, various airplane paraphernalia displayed around the large room that overlooks a lovely view of the waterfront. Fun background music was playing and it wasn’t too busy, but we could sense it picking up more when we left and the shifts changed. Service was generally confused and not aware of the beers available, but they did bring us tasty Macho Nachos. Brews available were in fair shape (Deschute, Kona, Butte Creek), and aside from the disappointing service, a recommendable destination when in town.
