If you're in Coopers Landing, this is the place to stop and recharge. Beer menu is extensive, we had a local porter and Alaskan berry mojito. Fish and chips were amazing, must try the Halibut (don't recommend the cod). Prompt, polite service, delicious desserts and clean bathrooms make this the place to have lunch.
