One of or best meals in AK!

This place is super! Nice atmosphere, great food. Lots of choices. The only thing I could say is that it would be so helpful for older people to have the specials written out. We were with an older couple and they absolutely could not hear the server or follow what she was saying. Also, she didn't... read more

This was the best meal of our Alaska trip. We were fortunate to be promptly seated when we walked in without a reservation. The entrees took a while to appear but were worth the wait. Both the Mediterranean chicken and lamb shank were excellent. They have a decent reasonably priced wine list. Service was friendly. Highly recommended casual fine dining.

Succulent and savory are two terms that totally fit this restaurant. Recipes that feature fresh, local and healthy ingredients, with many choices for special diets, clearly demonstrate how incredible eating right should be. Well trained, attentive staff and an impeccable wine list make this a hip destination for people from all walks of life. Foodies should not pass this by!

Turkey Red was not at all what I was expecting to find in Palmer, but it was such a welcome change from the heavy food we had been finding. Fresh, organic, plenty of options for dietary restrictions, a great wine list, all in a bright, airy restaurant with extremely friendly and accommodating service. We enjoyed the fresh baked bread, split... More

We were looking for a light bite to eat when in Palmer and found Turkey Red. The well designed interior was a great back drop for a relaxing meal. My husband enjoyed the well seasoned beef stew, while I made two appetizers my main meal. The spanikopita and the gyrokopita were both flavorful. I especially enjoyed the cinnnamon flavoring with...

We tried to dine at the red turkey, but the staff was not at all helpful. We go in, 4 adults 2 kids. 5:00 on a Saturday. "Do you have reservations" they asked. I looked around and counted 4 places we could have been seated. "This is Saturday night in Palmer." The sarcastic greeter barks in a monotone reply. "How... More
