This is a nice little store front bistro is located on Katlain Street where all the fisherman and packing houses are located. I can't say that we ate here, but this appeared to be a very nice place and it was packed when we walked by the window. Being within walking distance and near the Pioneer Bar, this would be a good alternative to the shuttle out to The Channel Club for a seafood dinner. The prices were more reasonable and the food looked very good. Next time in Sitka this will be one of the first places we try. Rustic Mediterranean fare specializing in Alaskan seafood - fresh - and hand-crafted specialty foods and baked bread. Reservations recommended. Cocktails served. Credit cards accepted handicap accessible.
Summer hours: Tuesday through Friday lunch 12:00p-3:00p, Tuesday through Saturday 5:00p-10:00p Dinner. Winter hours: Tuesday through Saturday 5:00p-10:00p.

The back of the Sitka Hotel
Off the lobby of the Sitka Hotel, Victoria's is a fine choice for breakfast or lunch. They had a fairly extensive breakfast menu. The portions were large and the prices reasonable. The servers were lighthearted and very nice. The lunch menu also looked decent. During the summer they also feature a full dinner menu.
Favorite Dish: Victoria's Special Breakfast. Sliced grilled steak with onions and peppers served with eggs and cheese. The portions are large and the food is tasty. This one sticks to the ribs.
Address: 118 Lincoln St
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Across from the Pioneer's Home on Lincoln Street.
On the Road to Mi Ranchito
After many seafood dinners, we could not supress our craving for Mexican food while in Sitka. After asking directions, we walked from Sheldon Jackson Museum to Sitka National Historic Park. There we took the left entrance of the Totem Trail. (From the front of the visitor's center) We paused at Indian Creek bridge to watch the salmon run, and continued our walk across the bridge to Sawmill Road. We walked another quarter mile to the right on Sawmill Road past a beautiful Russian Orthodox roadside memorial and the restaurant was on the left. It is located in an old blue gas station. It was well worth the long walk.
The restaurant itself is in a funky old gas station, though inside it was pleasent enough. The food was as authentic and quite tasty. We also had Mexican while in Juneau and this little joint cost less and had better food. Of course it came with free chips and tasty homemade salsa, and a local Mexican family in the kitchen.
Favorite Dish: I highly recommend the chile relleno, enchilada, tamale combination.
Address: 1315 Sawmill Creek Rd
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Just south of town on Sawmill Creek Road go past Indian Creek Bridge and it is just before Eagle Way on the left. The area surrounding the restuarant has a slightly industrial / trailer park feel.
Sunset View from Halibut Point Road
The Channel Club is housed in a nice wooden building with sea-view windows out Halibut Point Road. Moose antler's, trophy fish, nets, and shells, line the walls of this very Alaskan place. Sitka's finest Steak and Lobster Restaurant is typically Alaskan - pricey, but good. It is unusual in that every meal comes with a the salad bar. This is not just any salad bar. The varieties of salad both warm and cold is commendable. Consider it salad and an appetizer. While you are stewing over your salad selections along the back wall, the menu items are posted on separate signs above your head. The food is grilled and prepared in an open kitchen. The steaks were very tasty, the service excellent, and smoking is now allowed only at the bar. The prices are a little steep. Menu items ranged from $12-$42, but I noticed that many locals ordered hamburgers and sandwiches. Ask about the sandwich menu if you are interested. It is a little over halfway to the ferry and a shuttle will pick you up at downtown hotels and even take you to the ferry terminal afterwards. Reservations recommended.
Favorite Dish: A large sirloin grilled to perfection. The halibut cheeks are also tasty.
Sun-Thurs 5-10pm, Fri-Sat 5-11pm
Address: 2906 Halibut Point Rd
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Half way between downtown Sitka and the ferry terminal on Halibut Point Road.
