At first glance, the Rough Woods looks like a typical Alaskana-ish sort of place, all burled wood and carved bears and such, but it's much more thanks to owner Ruth Coy. In this town with few dining alternatives Ruth could get away with a so-so menu, but instead she challenges herself, making her own herb bread for her popular breakfast sandwich (served all day). Other menu items range from deep-fried halibut to steaks, and the pie of the day is always a good choice. Coy
even got licensed to brew beer, and her microwbrews, including an excellent Hefeweizen, are only available here.
