Worth the trip!

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... read 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!

My family eats here often. It's very hard to find a healthy place to eat that offers extremely good tasting food. Well, here it is - Turkey Red has my vote!

The food is excellent - unique menu. The acoustics aren't great and it's not the best romantic place but when you are sick of the diner food that is available, this is a great place to take a date!

I am in town on business and had lunch here based on a recommendation from my customer. I had a ham and blue cheese sandwich. It was excellent. There were many great items to choose from. Make sure you stop to read the specials board on the way in. I missed it and was not told of the specials. Just... More

Went here for lunch on the way from Anchorage to Denali. Picked it from the reviews in TripAdvisor. The reviews were great but we were still surprised how good the food and the overall experience was. We made a point of going there again on the way back down. The food is very interesting from the salads to the main... More

I have been for breakfast with family - it was very good (they tend to stick to one kind of cheese though so if you don't like that it might not be so good) and had the French toast. Went back for lunch and the clam chowder and sand which were really good ... But if a wait time and... More
