Turnagain treat

Beautifol view and inriguing food - such a treat. Even the drive out is a pleasure. Far enough from Anchorage to feel like a destinstion but clse enough to make it within easy reach. Spanish specialties star on the table within , and mountains soar scross the fjord without. Always great Alaska... read more

I went with a group, so I will way that maybe part of the issue with the number of people, however, they should have been expecting that many. Decor - I like the rustic feel, but the carpet in the entryway was just nasty. It smelled and I am not sure why they keep it. Service - Decent. The staff... More

this restaurant is a hidden gem. Went to a client dinner and they said this place is about a Half hour south of Anchorage. The drive is incredible but pay attention to the road. The food was amazing. Crab stuffed halibut was really good. All the dishes at our table looked good. Pepe is from Barcelona and his personal touches... More

My husband and I have driven by Pepe's several times and decided to give it a try for our date night about a week and a half ago (3/21/15). My father took a trip to Spain last year and made a delicious tapas feast for us over the holidays, so we felt inspired to try some other Spanish dishes (supposedly... More

Pepes Turnagin House was wonderful ! The menu had a wonderful variety at reasonable prices. The food was ideally prepared and wonderfully tasty. For the price, the quality was outstanding and beyond expectations. The atmosphere was cozy and excellent. The service was outstanding and of great assistance in their recommendations. Pepes is a must if you are touring Alaska or... More

One of the best views for dinner. You are about 100 yards from Prince William Sound. Quaint little place and small. I had such high hopes. Went on Valentines day. Met by a nice older gentleman who seated us. The older blonde woman who waited on us was perhaps the worst waitress in the history of servers. Keep in mind... More

For years, we drove past this somewhat drab-looking house-turned-into-restaurant on the Seward Highway about 20 miles south of Anchorage. One day, we decided to stop in and found a beautiful interior, including white table cloths, fire places and amazing views of Turnagain Arm. The menu includes many unique items including tapas, fresh local seafood, and their famous paella. The service... More

The food just isn't good any more since it came under new ownership. We use to go there on a regular basis and the food was excellent. But, now don't waste your time or a trip out there.

We only stopped because we had coupon and didn't want to wait until we reached Anchorage. This was slow season so there were not many customers, normally a reason for concern. Our server was excellent, helped us choose our entree's and took our drink order. As we were waiting for our meal, Pepe stopped by to welcome us and warn... More

On our last evening in Alaska, our family of 7, ranging in age from 11-70, enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Pepe's Turnagain House. Our server was most helpful, attentive, and fun! The food was exceptional - my crab stuffed salmon with mango salsa topped with hollandaise was excellent. We enjoyed our visit with Pepe. Thank yous to Pepe and his... More
