restaurant review #5

Doc Water's Pub at the Wharf

Typical Alaska pub menu - halibut burger, salmon burger, cow burger, halibut fish and chips - good grub, interesting pub atmosphere. They have music 7 nights a week but we were too early for the evening's performance. We'll have to keep it in mind for another night. The salmon burger was a nice sockeye fillet, the halibut burger was served with avocado and pico de gallo, the cow burger had bacon and blue cheese (and tell me what's not delicious with these condiments) and the halibut fish and chips was served crispy and moist inside. The tartar sauce was homemade and was delicious. Definitely will go back for more grub and entertainment.

El Sombrero
Good mexican food in the tex-mex style–probably the only mexican restaurant I've been to where the entire kitchen and wait staff was caucasain! They fry up the chips fresh and the salsa had a nice kick to it. No hard liquor license but they had a decent wine margarita. I like them on the sweet side so it was good for me. We'll be back here for more mexican food.

Capital Cafe
Located in the Baranof Hotel, the cafe is very nice for breakfast or lunch. For lunch I had the halibut burger and Tim had a Reuben – we both had the fries and they were really crispy. Service was very nice and since it was in a hotel the bathrooms were very clean! I've heard that the dinners in the Gold Room are also very good so we'll have to save it for another night out.
