Spent 4 days in Anchorage followed by 4 days in Hawaii. This was the best meal of both locations combined! Go for bar seating if you can’t get reservations and wait is long. Tables just as comfortable and not very noisy.

Excellent fresh salmon and ravioli appetizer. Good crab cake appetizer (but small portion). Everything was tasty. But, the menu was a bit limited. I prefer their sister restaurant, Glacier Brewhouse, for the variety on its menu. Make reservations.

My wife and I ate here on our second and final evening in Anchorage. Food is well-prepared and atmosphere is good. Waitress was friendly, and helpful in answering our questions, not just about menu. The wait to receive our food was a bit long, however.

I picked this restaurant for my last dinner in Anchorage and it turned out to be the best dinner I ate in that city. The atmosphere was quiet, the service very attentive, and the food excellent. Save room for dessert.
