“(4.2 mi) Want to enjoy the freshest seafood selection in Fairbanks while also taking in a part of our history and enjoying being on the Chena River? This is the place to be. From the timeless historical saloon to the dining room you will enjoy the ambiance of Alaska. The 11 foot grizzly greets you upon entering and the walls are lined with historical artifacts. While you enjoy this 5 star food experience your eyes will feast on a 5 star Alaskan ambiance experience. The shuffle board and pool tables are classic past times. This place will not disappoint. ”

“One half is a bar, the other half is a movie theater where they bring you your dinner while you are watching your movie! Great food and fun. Weekends often offer local DJ talent and dancing.”

American Restaurant

“Filled with eclectic icons and sports memorabilia. Out in the boonies, but a great place for brunch on Sunday. If you want to feel like a Goldstream local, come and get a drink here and shoot the breeze with some interesting folks, who most likely live in dry cabins. There is also live music on the weekends. My favorite brunch item is the Steak and Eggs. The homemade biscuits and honey butter will blow your mind! I've heard they also serve a mean Bloody Mary.”
