Very good

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 .

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

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.

Service was very good, food was good, the views of the Matanuska Glacier are spectacular. Menu is a little limited but we enjoyed the burgers and French Dip.

Went here on the recommendation of friends, expecting more. Funky little place with lots of atmosphere and a sweeping view of the Matanuska Glacier. Unfortunately the food was run of the mill and didn't live up to our expectations. What's special about the place is its location - don't expect a great dining experience.

After taking a walking trip out onto the Matanuska Glacier we took some time with friends to have lunch at the long rifle lodge. we have hamburgers which seems to be a favorite there. The hamburgers were larger than what I would expect salads are excellent and food was overall very good. service was excellent and the view from my... More
