We just moved to Palmer from California. Not exactly foodies, but do enjoy great food and ambiance. Turkey Red has both, and then some... Friendly, homey space and staff; delicious, fresh, meals.

I just love this Italian/Greek bakery/restaurant. The food and drink is fabulous! It is a favorite weekday lunch site with Palmeranians, but Turkey Red serves breakfast and dinner as well every day but Sunday.

Recommended by the young man at the Palmer Museum and Visitor Center, we were a little skeptical of what we would find at the Turkey Red (it sounded like a tavern out of a Jack London novel). I asked for a place that might have something for a Gluten Free Vegan. What we found was an exciting restaurant and bakery... More

Turkey Red adds a little class to your Palmer visit. I eat here solo frequently but love meeting up with a friend. The service is very friendly.

I was in Anchorage on business for the weekend and a client recommenced this restaurant. I had the salmon with blueberry butter over jasmine rice. It was fabulous. We also had the the Bree with blue berries.. Worth the drive. One of the best meals I have ever eaten

Although it's over 50 miles from my home in South Anchorage to downtown Palmer I find Turkey Red (weird name for a restaurant) is worth the trip. I've had both Lunches and Dinner here. Both have been noteworthy and keep bringing me back. For dinner, I asked for something Vegan because I didn't see anything on the menu. What came... More

I love teh food at Turkey Red. The food is fresh and quality, the staff is friendly and kind. It gets crowded on Weekends and i like the dinner menu better than the lunch menu. My favorite is the beef steak salad . completely delicious! They have daily stew and they are always good.

At a recent Business Network meeting we were served a Turkey Red lunch. The Caprese sandwich was one of the best I have ever had. Esther was a great server, the salad scrumptious & so fresh + a nice touch with the bread on the side. A definite place I would frequent again and the BNI group was awesome too!... More

I've eaten here many times and enjoy the food. I have sent them 3 emails over the past 3 weeks to talk to them about catering a party for 60 people. And have called and left message for the owner. They don't respond. Maybe they don't need the business anymore.... Too bad.

This is a great place for lunch. They have a good selection of sandwiches, great soup and salad. Dinners are good, too, but I had to wait for our meal longer than necessary. Their breads are awsome, esp. the baguette and their sourdough. Try their cookies, too, you'll love them!
