Great view, good drinks

The restaurant sits on the river and is just beautiful. There are specials every night to include food and drink specials. Sitting out on the deck having a cocktail was a wonderful way to end a long day. Our food was good, nothing spectacular but good.

My husband and I chose Chena's Alaskan Grill for our Anniversary Dinner last July. We were seated to a wonderful table on the deck next to the river. The food was excellent. My husbands steak was cooked to perfection and my Seafood Alfredo was indescribably delicious! During dinner we made conversation with a couple from Austrailia and learned the husband... More

After a morning on the Riverboat Discovery, we went to Chena's Alaskan Grill for a late lunch. It was a warm, sunny day so we sat out on the patio shaded by the huge umbrellas. We both had Crab and Artichoke with Asiago Sandwiches - delicious! As side dishes, one of us had a cold pasta salad, while the other... More

My husband enjoyed eating at Chena's Alaskan Grill several times while we were in Fairbanks. The restaurant doesn't open up until 5:30 for dinner and they do have luncheon hours, so please check before you go. We ate two times both outside and inside. The outside seating is perfect for good weather. The food was incredible. They have specials each... More

I have lived in Fairbanks for almost 15 years now and am super happy every summer because I know this restaurant is opening up again! When our two foodie friends came to town I knew exactly where we were going to take them to dinner. Chena's is amazing, we took our foodie friends here and we all left very happy.... More

Even though it was cool and rainy it was a great experience. On a nice day, this place would be spectacular since the outside seating on the river is awesome. The inside décor is really interesting as is the history.

Sangria was very good. Halibut with blueberries and rice and vegetables was excellent. Maple mustard glazed salmon was good. Apple crisp was okay, but needed a little sugar. The cinnamon bread pudding was great.

Food was wonderful. Presentation was superb. Wait staff was very good. I recommend that you eat here while in town. Prices are 25 to 35 per dish. For Fairbanks this is reasonable.

We had a delicious meal with fresh salmon in our appetizer, our salad and our entrée. They were all very tasty. The setting was nice situated along the river. Some road noise from a nearby bridge but easily ignored.
