Hotel Chitina: Woo Hoo Hot Food!!
We stopped at this restaurant after spending the night in the rain on the cliffs along the Copper River. A warm plate of eggs and a hot cup of coffee were just the ticket. The atmoshpere was interesting and very historic. I would reccomend stopping here.

You can start your day with a full breakfast in our sun-filled dining room or grab a pastry from our bakery case and head off on your adventure. We can also prepare lunches to go for you.
For lunch, we offer soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers or maybe just a sweet treat. And of course a relaxing view out our windows or a pause on our decks. After lunch you can stroll thru town, stop in the art gallery, The Emporium, or visit the old stage coach building and take in some history.
Dinner is more than just a meal…it’s an event served in courses. It begins with a serving of our house made soup of the day, followed by a salad of crispy fresh greens, and a demi loaf of bread. Then the culinary experience of your chosen entrée. We offer selections from steaks, salmon, halibut, shrimp, chicken and pasta. You can have your chosen main dish prepared a variety of ways… blackened with a house made spicy Cajun seasoning; grilled and glazed with a pineapple teriyaki sauce; Oscar style with crab, asparagus, and béarnais or simply grilled with a light seasoning. Whatever your choice…your taste buds are sure to enjoy it. And just when you think that there can’t be any way to top your fantastic meal… we’ll tempt you with our house made delectable desserts!"
But bring a sweater. Maybe I was chilled to the bone but it did not seem very warm inside.
Favorite Dish: I was there for breakfast... The dinner menu looked good and I can't believe the salmon would not be REALLY fresh with the Copper River so close!
This is also a hotel...btw
It'll Do Cafe: It'll Do Cafe - It sure did! ...
This was the best place in this little town to grab a bite to eat - at least it was so in 1996. By little I mean that only around 50 people live here. It was always full at lunch-time. Nice atmosphere - the typical rustic look.
Favorite Dish: Great hamburgers!
