As far as the locals are concerned, the few green-and-white-vinyl booths at this bar across from the harbor make a fine destination. The Pioneer is vintage Alaska, with pool tables, rough-hewn locals clad in Carhartts and XtraTuf boots, hundreds of pictures of local fishing boats, and occasional live music. Regulars, mostly local fishermen, swear by the submarine sandwiches and hot dogs. One downside: the Pioneer allows smoking, so you're likely to leave smelling like an ashtray.
