What a great old building. So much character, and lots of local color. The bartender was extremely friendly and chatted my partner and I up for good while. The bar has a great balcony where they were playing some cool bluegrass style music. We had some beers and got a little taste of the local flavor. Would love to stay in one of the rooms sometime.
The crab looked great, but the prices drove me towards the halibut. Partner had fish and chips, and I had the fish tacos. Fish tacos were in no way authentic, but man were they tasty. There was a mayo based sauce, cabbage, and their salsa on top. Chips on the side were not made in house, but it was Alaska, towards the end of the tourist season so I wasn't expecting that. The fish and chips were really good, and were some of the best we had while in Alaska. This place in Skagway gave us four TINY pieces of fish, about a bite or two per piece, for $20. Partner got 3 good sized pieces here for $16, and the service was much better as well. Tasty food, decent view of the port and some good cold beer to wash it down with!
Friendly folks, tasty beer, and good food! We started here for beers; the spruce tip beer is amazing, and I highly recommend it. After walking around town for a bit, we decided to come back here and have lunch. Partner had the fried halibut sandwich, which was cooked perfectly; nice crispy batter, with moist flaky fish inside. I opted for the Angus beef burger, and was not disappointed. Fries and onion rings were great, and the bartender made us some tasty spicy tequilla drinks. Can't remember what all was in it, but they house-infused the tequilla. Fun place to check out while in town.
Had been hearing about this place, and am very glad I checked it out. My partner is vegetarian, and there were plenty of options for him to pick from. He got the empanadas verde which were excellent. The chipotle cream sauce they topped it with was the perfect touch, just enough spice. I had a great carne asada burrito. The house made tortilla was tasty and everything inside was nicely balanced. Great guacamole and fresh pico salsa. I will definitely be back to check out more of their offerings.
Only tried two different slices of pizza, the margherita and the blanca. Both were excellent! Crust was perfect IMHO, and had a nice amount of char, but not too much. The sauce on the marg was well seasoned, and had just the right amount of cheese. My only negative comment would be the basil. They put it on before cooking, so the little leaves are pretty much burnt to a crisp by the time it's done cooking. The blanca had a nice contrast of heat and sweet that came from hot peppers and cheese. I am excited to try some more of their offerings! What bumped them from 4 to 5 stars was SQUIRT in a bottle, from Mexico. So delicious.
Had a couple of sandwiches with my partner, and was pleasantly surprised. We were working a flea market down the street, and found this spot on Yelp. Thanks, folks! The Turkey Paw was great, and my partners breakfast sandwich was also tasty. Great ingredients. with good flavor combinations, and a solid guy working the place! I want to try out the roast beef next time; they were out of one of the main ingredients when I was there, so the cook steered me towards something else. Nice spot for a good sammie and maybe a beer too!
Organized tours are not normally my cup of tea, but this one was just disappointing and frustrating. We took a 2+ hour tour to see some wildlife, and mainly the Saxman Totem park.
We got last minute tickets around 9:20 for a 9:30 tour. The desk clerk was friendly, and we were quickly boarded, The pictures shown of where we were going, made it look like we were heading to a nature reserve. Huge hype up about how likely it was that we would see whales, eagles, salmon, and possibly bears. The tour kept trying to pack more and more people on, so we didn't even end up leaving until about 9:50. It was hot, muggy, and sweaty inside the bus while we waited for them to pack more folks on. Eventually we took off, and were given paper towels to wipe the windows clean with, so that we could somewhat see out of the bus. We ended up looking for wildlife in two different PARKING LOTS; one at a boat ramp, and one at some abandoned/run down warehouse... super setting! The whole way there, the tour guide rambled on and on, without a single pause, telling us about exciting facts such as the names and birth dates of his six kids. We also got to hear some BS about how sustainable clear-cut logging is, and how it was the environmentalist who ruined Ketchikan's economy. On top of that, the tour company had some feud with a local property owner, so we were warned about a security guard who would be taking pictures of us if we strayed onto the guy's property. This was so random, and uncomfortable. There are so many beautiful places in Ketchikan; if you've got an uncomfortable situation with a property owner, than find another spot. By no means were we anywhere "one of a kind". Yes, there were salmon, and some seals in the water, but there were both right in downtown Ketchikan. We actually left shortly after being herded onto a two lane bridge on a somewhat busy road. Lots of big trucks and tour buses going back and forth while we were supposed to be "soaking in the Alaskan scenery and wildlife". We walked 7 miles back, and honestly saw more of Ketchikan than most tourist would, and it was far more enjoyable than piling back onto a muggy bus. We tried to get a refund, or a partial refund, but of course the office was closed when we got back, and they are now closed for the season. I would avoid this company at all costs.
I was so disappointed on my last visit, and I think Luc Lac has gotten "too big for its britches". I wish I could say that only the atmosphere, and service, had changed, but unfortunately the food was no where near as good as it used to be. We were the first ones in the door on Friday afternoon; they opened a little late, and just pushed the door open at one point, not even welcoming the guests. The cashier was borderline rude, and super aloof. It didn't seem like anyone that worked there wanted to be there. I asked what the drink special was and she acted like my question was exhausting. She managed to quickly point to some poorly written sign, and said "it's written right here". Thanks for pointing out your ineligible sign. We ordered, and took a seat, and the food came out promptly. The broth in the mussels was bland, which is a shame because it used to be my favorite mussels dish in town. The papaya salad was also extremely bland, no heat, and just "meh". I was overcharged for my beer, which they corrected, but offered no apology. To top it off, they have this abrasive chalk board with their house rules. All sorts of little snarky comments like "if you don't like our policy, why are you here?" I know they serve a late-night crowd, and maybe that treatment flies when you're drunk at 330 and no where else is open, but I would like a little respect as a customer. The menu is also getting a little old, I don't think they have ever added anything new or changed things up. This used to be my go-to spot to take guests, and I recommended it all the time. That is no longer the case, and I will be frequenting other establishments that actually appreciate the customers who have made them a success. A little dose of humility is needed, Luc Lac. There are other games in town...
What a great restaurant. I moved here a few years ago, and have had this place on my radar ever since. I finally got around to trying it out this past Saturday, and it made me upset that I had waited so long! What first caught my eye were the extremely reasonable entree prices. $18 for a ribeye with sides... DEAL! The quality of the food is well above what you would expect, price-wise. Everything was great; servers were friendly, the wait wasn't long, and the food was paced properly. We sat at the bar, and I think you get better service doing that sometimes. Our server kept a close eye on our progress during appetizer and salad courses... pretty much as soon as we finished, the next round showed up. The Thom-ka cocktail was freaking DELICIOUS!
Great burgers, and some of the best onion rings I've ever had! Bar Bar serves up some great greasy burgers, fries, and the like along with some good beer and cocktails. Throw on the huge patio, and you've got a winning combo! I came to try out the burger they were doing for Portland Burger Week, and I was not disappointed. Nicely cooked patty, grilled onions, homemade tomato chutney, and swiss(?) on a potato bun. It was damn good, and for $5 it was killer. I added on some onion rings, and like others have mentioned Bar Bar's ORs are KILLER! So crispy, with nice sized rings. Perfect place to chill out and relax on a nice Portland summer day.
