We were going out for my wife's birthday and wanted to try something we hadn't had before. Like several of the reviews mentioned, a lot of menu items are similar in Alaska. While we were at the restaurant, it appeared many of the other patrons were there for he dessert menu. We were there for both dinner and dessert. We... More

My husband and I visited here on a Saturday evening for the first time since its remodel and new owners. We weren't disappointed. We found the atmosphere to be pleasant, although we were seated very close to fellow diners. We ordered the bruschetta, and while it was tasty, our waitress forgot to bring us plates. My husband had the salmon... More

Surprise, it was just like anywhere else in Fairbanks-horrible service! The salad had black slimey rotten lettuce. When we told the waitress she just said "sorry i'll tell the kitchen". Not sorry can I bring you a new one but more like oh well too bad. The sandwiches were good but laid on a bed of what looked like lettuce... More

We decided to try Wolf Run again after about a year since our original visit. Got seated with water, wine, and menus pretty quickly and it didn't take long to get our order in. Things seemed to really slow down after that. Bread and butter, or something, would have helped pass the time, but none was provided. My scallops appetizer,... More

Went for late lunch. Would have ordered off dinner menu if we could but the the lunch sandwiches turned out to be awesome! Other guys had the salmon wiches, I had the steak one. Great view out the window, good waitress (owner?), would go again. Oh, peanut butter pie beyond belief!

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. One... More

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
