The two hotels also offer some of Wrangell's best dining. Alaskan Sourdough Lodge serves meals to guests, and to others by reservation. It's a family-style dinner without a menu. The Stikine Inn Restaurant is a popular spot, with excellent simple meals.

You have other choices for deli sandwiches or a simple meal, including the Diamond C Coffee Shop, 223 Front St. (tel. 907/874-3350), next to the cafe of the same name, described below. It's a typical coffee and espresso shop, with good daily sandwich specials for lunch, such as the halibut panini served the day we visited.

The deli at Bob's IGA, 223 Brueger St. (tel. 907/874-2341), produces good sandwiches and also sells frozen yogurt. It is open Monday through Saturday 9am to 6pm.
