"Great atmosphere, friendly home-style crowd, and delicious food. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger with fries. The burger was the perfect size and the fries were fresh from the grill delivered right from the cook!"
"Rocky's is an out of the way place with "Alaskan Experience" that you will remember. The building has a history that goes back to the Fifties and contains a resturant, a movie rental store, a clothing are ,and a coffee shop that serves coffee from around the world. The food is great. The staff is friendly. I highly recommend Rocky's!"
"We enjoyed two dinners at Rocky's Cafe while visiting friends in Clam Gulch. The menu is a fun read! We enjoyed the Halibut basket, specialty reuben sandwich, and cheese burgers. Food is fresh, hot, and the fries were perfectly crispy, along with a very friendly wait staff. Looking forward to trying their breakfast menu next trip."
The Kasilof Mercantile began as the “Kasilof Grocery” in 1959. It was run by Bill and Isabella Harris out of the supply shed next to the Kasilof Children’s Home on K-Beach road. They sold only what they could purchase in two annual case lots delivered from Seward. Beginning in 1960, a new building was built in the current location and was added onto, piece-by-piece, by a succession of hard working and dedicated owners. In it’s time this building has served as a post office, feed store, residential home, and newest of all is as Alaska’s first outlet store for Alaskan Hardgear.
Travis and Junie Steinbeck purchased the Kasilof Mercantile in July 2014. Travis has been involved in the grocery business since moving back to Alaska in 1984. When the opportunity came about to purchase the Mercantile it seemed like a natural fit. He knows the grocery business inside and out and the restaurant would make good use of Travis and Junie’s culinary talents.
