What a view!

Stopped here for lunch. Reminds me of a road house back before the days of the interstate... Sandwiches were good, service was quick, and enjoyed the view of the Glacier. They also have stuffed critters of all sorts displayed, neat to see. RECOMMENDED!

Stopped here for a lunch. Great views of the Matanuska Glacier, warm rustic interior with interesting native mounts. Food and service was good. Overall, great atmosphere and good food for an afternoon lunch.

Great service. Good food. Fabulous views. Entertaining mounts. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but you'll be pleasantly surprised when you go in.

Wow!! We rolled in about 8pm and they close at 8:30. We came for a few cocktails. Immediately the bartender said she would check to see if the kitchen was still open. We were not there for food but drinks. So we waited at the bar for ten more minutes with no service. I finally had to hunt the bartender... More

About 45 miles out of Palmer ,AK on hwy. 1. Overlooking matanuska glacier. Great glacier views as you rest and relax while you fine. Food was fresh, meat juicy and bread warm. Service was the best we have had so far on our vacation in Alaska .

We ordered burgers that were great but their desert was to die for. It had vanilla ice cream and recess size bites. Wish I remembered the name. Very Alaskan lodge with wildlife and home cooking. As everyone has posted the view is KILLER. Would return for that desert any day.

We took a drive from Palmer to visit Glacier View Elementary School, as we had done in 2009. After taking our photos we decided we were ready for some beverages. I was the one of our foursome who was skeptical of the Long Rifle Lodge, and I admit that I was wrong! What a truly amazing surprise! Not only was... More

This was the BEST Vegetarian meal we had in AK. Best Veg Burgers and I had veg burrito - staff was very friendly and courteous. My daughter has french toast for breakfast she loved it. Very reasonably priced.

Interesting little place with a great view of Matanuska Glacier and the valley below. Fairly limited menu but everything we had was very good, particularly for a small roadside lodge. Waitress was efficient and nice. Lots of stuffed animals all around made it even more interesting. Wouldn't hesitate to stop here again if I was passing by.
