Double Musky Inn Restaurant Review:

Step through the door and you are transported from pristine Alaskan wilderness to a party waiting just for you. The interior of this rustic log cabin drips with beads, mirrors, and other Mardi Gras-themed eye candy packed into every nook and cranny. The bar is a lively spot, with friendly hangers-on waiting to poach a table. Reservations are famously (or infamously) not accepted, so show up right at opening time for the best chance of grabbing a table. Starters may include halibut ceviche, a fresh Alaskan treat marinated in lemon and lime then cradled in an avocado, while entrées range from French pepper steak to a Prime filet with béarnaise sauce. The slam dunk dessert choice is Musky Pie, a rich, creamy chocolate pie made with a pecan and cracker crust. You can buy a single slice or indulge in a whole pie. To complement a meal, there's a full bar and a varied wine list. Best to skip the house wine, which has proved disappointing on occasion, and upgrade. Note that this popular establishment is closed each year from late October through early December.
