    We arrived to the restaurant and there was only one couple there eating. We sat down and ordered drinks and a tourist bus showed up. A few people came in and got to eat and leave before we even got to order food. When the food did arrive it was not the correct order and so it went to a different table. They then tried to take our order again but at that time we were too upset so we paid for our two drinks and left. We went to Red Robin and had a great meal there.

    The Boat House was a wonderful place for our date night out with friends. We were seated right away and brought drinks. we did have to wait quite awhile for our appetizer to arrive and then even longer for the entrees to come. We ordered scallops, they were rubbery and not cooked properly. but another person in our party ordered some and they were cooked to perfection, so I suppose its a hit and miss. the prices are very high and there are not many options available. example"mac and cheese came with one cup of pasta and no sides for $14

    I had a friend out from Anchorage, we were very pleased with the service and food we received. The portions were nice, we were able to share a sweet and a savory with no problem. The mimosa was a full glass of champagne with a splash of fresh squeezed orange juice. I had eggs benedict and the eggs were poached to perfection and the hollandaise sauce was made with a quality butter and the right amount of sauce was used so that it complimented the eggs and English muffin not over powered it.
