Formica tabletops, paper napkins, and vinyl swivel chairs make for a lackluster ambience that doesn't match up to the gorgeous water views and upscale fare served here, but you probably won't mind. One of Sitka's largest eateries, Van Winkle dubs its fare "frontier cuisine," which translates to a seafood-heavy menu, but the restaurant also serves pizzas, chicken, and duck. The create-your-own pastas are excellent—a half order is plenty for normal-size appetites—and
the rich desserts are also shareable.
