The last time I was in Fairbanks, 4 years ago, this place was one to avoid according to the locals. Not now, Wolf Run has been updated in the last few years by the look of the interior. The food is an intersting mix of american, european and asian influence. From apeetizers through desert,I would have to say, its my... More

We came for our anniversary celebration. It is a nice restaurant in a log house/building. Decent service. Okay wine selection. Food was well prepared. I had the braciole (a rolled beef dish) and hubby had the pork medallions. Both were tasty. Veggies were not overcooked. Desserts ARE the reason to come here - we shared the Kentucky Derby Pie.

We were expecting a nice dinner, and we got an unexpected treat! A local recommended this place to us. Our server- Nicolien- suggested several dishes. We chose the halibut and the steak (which was a roll-up with spices). Both entrees were excellent and came with risotto ! Wonderful wine list and delicious desert- we had creme brûlée . Best meal...

The atmosphere and menu lead one to expect a quality meal. Not so much. The vegetables are over steamed with ZERO seasoning. Same with the potatoes. The meat dishes were fairly well prepared, but nothing special. My husband ordered their special Surf and Turf. The shrimp were nice, but the rib eye was very disappointing. Not tender and clearly not... More

This restaurant is ranked quite high so we tried it for dinner. Apparently we are here during a very unusual high temperature period. There was no air conditioning,and even though they had fans moving the air, the temperature was 87 degrees - a bit too high for our comfort. The menu is fairly limited but the selections are very nice.... More

This is such a charming little restaurant. The food is all fresh and made from scratch. Do not miss the seared scallop appetizer! The planked salmon is a wonderful dinner. The MUST have is any of the desserts. OMG! So fabulous. The five of us each got a different one to share. The favorites were the lemon cake, the amaretto... More

Growing up in Fairbanks, this was a place that felt special for dinner out. On my two recent visits, it has been much less satisfying. Dark inside, we found the service to be VERY slow, and the food was only so-so. The attention to detail was lacking. If you go in with modest expectations and plenty of time, it might... More

This has been a favorite restaurant of mine for many years. Sadly it was falling into disrepair for some time but within the last year a new owner has bought it and put the love it needed back into it! Prices have gone up but, for good reason. Many items are also made with better quality. It is also nice... More

I loved the interior decor of this restaurant! You need to be aware that there are sculptures, paintings, and drawings of wolves. They are tastefully presented throughout the restaurant. Wolf Run is a quaint restaurant that uses an old home and has been remodeled for food preparation and service. The entrees are absolutely delicious, particularly the seafood. It's been awhile,...
