great bread pudding

My wife and I loved this place. I got the hamburger on fresh sourdough bread. My wife got the fish and chips and loved it. The bread pudding was great and they serve an awesome hot chocolate.

Who would expect a microbrewery in a very small Alaska town? Well Talkeetna has one, and they do an excellent job of preparing food and brewing craft beer. The short ribs just melted in your mouth, you did not need a knife to cut the meat. Small menu, but the choices are very good. This was our fourth time dining... More

The beer here is so good they started canning it to sell outside of Talkeetna a few years back. Lots of choices of beer to fit anyone's taste. The menu has a soup, salads, sandwiches and entrees. Tonight we both picked the short rib platter. A huge piece of beef that fell apart with the touch of a fork. Served... More

My husband and I stayed in Talkeetna over the weekend recently with another couple. We stopped here for dinner Saturday evening and it was definitely a good choice! The menu had diverse offerings, so all of us ordered completely different items. I decided on the coconut shrimp curry, my husband had a southwest bacon burger, and our friend ordered a... More

The food is adequate and the service is good. I just cannot accept that a pint of beer costs $6 here when you can go next door to the pizza place and it is only $5. Why would they charge more for beer that they brew themselves when their competitors sell their beer for less? Because they can apparently. The... More

Thank you very much for visiting our Brewpub. We hope you enjoyed the beer. I would like to take a moment to shed light on some common misconceptions. First, believe it or not, because our restaurant buys our beer directly from the brewery we actually pay more for it than other restaurants who buy from our distributor. To be fair,... More

We went here for lunch and sat outside, great so you keep in touch with life on Main Street. We received a warm welcome and service is very good (and quick) We had some really good burgers (at reasonable prices). So, when your hungry, I can surely recommend this restaurant.

Twister Creek Restaurant has a great porch, fun decor, and decent beer. However, the service was pretty slow and the food was nothing special. I will go elsewhere for dinner the next time I'm in Talkeetna...
