I love burgers, I love pizza, I love food in general. I was not expecting to be floored by the food in this joint, but I was! My first trip in, I ordered the elk burger and was not disappointed, the second time in, I got a pizza and was thrilled. The service was great, the food was tasty, and... More

Surprisingly good food in this little restaurant. Good halibut dishes. Enjoyed halibut sandwich and taco. Fish taco was not quite as good as I have had in other locales (Cabo San Lucas, Key West and Aruba) but fresh. Blackened halibut sandwich is a winner. Good selection of craft beers and cute, warm atmosphere.

We landed at Chair 5 late on a rainy Sunday night. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the wait staff friendly and our two pizzas arrived in a short time. And boy, were they delicious, a Meat Lovers' and a Chicken variety (can't remember the name exactly). Not cheap, but considering the locale (a ski area in December), price was... More

10 of us stopped in for dinner after a trip to the Alaska wildlife conservation. The staff was quick to get us a table and was very polite. We got a Hawaiian pizza which was said to be good. The huge nacho appetizer, delicious. Husband got some three patty burger that was HUGE. It was delicious. The kids liked their... More

I've been coming to Girdwood with my family for years, and we always make a stop at Chair 5. It has become our go-to place when visiting the area. From my perspective, Girdwood restaurants offer either high-priced fare, or major disappointment. Chair 5 fills a void and offers great food, in a warm welcoming environment, at a fair price. I've...

We have been to this restaurant a few times while visiting Girdwood and can not say anything bad. The service is great. The staff are knowledgeable and polite. Fast service even when busy. I had a bison burger and my husband had elk burger which were cooked perfectly. Will visit again.

Always love chair 5 when in girdwood. Food is great lots of beer options and good kid menu. Do not go on a weekend with large groups. Can not accommodate large groups. But they did do their best for us and we appreciated it so very much. Staff is wonderful. If busy expect service to be slower than normal.

This is another place that my family has visited in the Girdwood area for a number of years. It is a good bar and grill and the food has never disappointed. But the service has really been sliding and our last visit was disappointing on so many levels that I will absolutely hesitate before we try this location again. When... More
