Burger and Beer is great

When the weather is good, this is a wonderful place to eat. Worth a stop. Great salads also. A good meeting location for groups.Right in the heart of town.

Largest hamburger in the world! (well it's pretty big!) Ask the bartender about her Iditarod experiences. Did I say try the hamburger!

We found the West Rib Pub to be a friendly place. The staff made you feel very welcome and the atmosphere and the way the place is set up is quite unique. the food was great. We had a Carribou Burger with chips which was very tasty and as my husband said was like an old fashioned great tasting burger.

After having a not so great experience in Nagleys, we decided to try the West Rib pub and grill for dinner. What a delight, there was a terrific atmosphere and lots of photos and collectables from previous years. The menu was varied and serves were large. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience . The bakery attached had us returning daily as... More

We added a growler from here to our collection and it was great. Walked in and walked out happy. Stop in if you are in the area.

I've been a patron of this establishment for over 17 years I've never once had an issue it's under new management and I've met them and they're great people. Always a pleasure.

I was keen to eat here as it came highly recommended. The pub is full of interesting photos and articles around attempts to climb Denali (Mt McKinley) from the west rib. Talkeetna is a launching place for many such attempts, and the pub a natural meeting place, where plans are formed. Clearly there were many locals here and it was... More

It was cold outside but very warm inside and everybody was friendly. The Pub is connected to Nagley's which was an... More
