Chair 5 doesn't look like much from the outside or even once you walk in, but the food is great! The pizzas are excellent (though very greasy), they have a good beer selection, and it's usually got a great vibe.

My sister always eats here when she drives from Anchorage. We all enjoyed delicious burgers and excellent salmon salads with friendly, attentive service. This is a nice place in summer and I can just imagine how busy it is in the winter ski season!

Despite having a very interesting and enticing burger menu, the burgers where nothing special. Average patties, kind of dried out, served with the standard condiments and Sisco buns. A real dissappointment. The soup of the day was nothing to rave about either. Service was OK. Not a bad place, just nothing to rave about. Didn't try the Pizza, but looked... More

Some friends recommended chair 5 to us. They were right. Good food, especially the seafood and a great atmosphere. Kids were fine and it only added to the place.

most amazing food, most horrendous service. It's well worth the wait for the deep dish pizza (good things take time), but the 30 min to wait for a server when they are not that busy, ridiculous.

This place is very casual, everyone in the place was friendly and it didn't take long to start up a few conversations. I ordered the halibut appetizer for a snack and it was delicious. They have big screen TV's for sports and a pool table...( I wanted to play but it was pretty busy!)

Went there our first night in Girdwood based on a recommendation from the B&B we were staying at. Food was delicious, wait staff was knowledgeable and super friendly. Went back there for dinner again two nights later!!

I try halibut burgers wherever I can find them. They are a mixed lot with too many places moving to ground fish (tastes as good as it sounds.) We stopped at Chair 5 for a late lunch after hiking out of Girdwood, and this time I found a winner. Large piece of fresh fish perfectly grilled - wonderful. Nice friendly... More

For a business that relies on customer service to succeed, I can't imagine Chair 5 will be in business for a very long time. Our hostess/waitress was anything but polite right from the start as we stopped by around mid-afternoon for lunch. The place was basically empty other than a few locals and maybe one other table of tourists. Sorry... More

I don't know the quantity of beers on tap but its a HUGE number--and what goes better with fabulous fish and chips?? I keep being told that the pizza is great here too but why vary from what I love. Seriously, check this place out--well worth a trip from Anchorage to Girdwood or swing in as you come up the... More
