Powder House Bar & Grill

American in Cordova

Overlooking Eyak Lake on the site of the original Copper River & Northwestern Railroad powder house, this is a fun place with live music, excellent beer, soup and sandwiches for lunch, and quality steak and – the highlight – seafood dinners, especially razor clams. Due to its out-of-town location it's 95% local and has that lived-in aroma of old carpets and cooking oil.

There are tranquilizing lake views from the deck.
