Good food but they allow smoking

Even though there is a non smoking section it still smells of smoke when someone lights up. The breakfast was good and not badly prices. The staff was nice and very welcoming. Would have gotten another point if it wasn't for the smoke. Will go back and give it another shot in a few weeks.

If you are looking for a restaurant that allows smoking, this is a good choice. The hostess was very friendly, but after we were seated and had started to look at the menu, we realized that our family was no longer adapted to this type of environment, even in the non-smoking section. Our eyes and lungs were feeling the irritation... More

We had a wonderful breakfast and will be back during our 6 nights in Fairbanks. Service was good. They have a separate smoking section which was a hit with my husband.. They are open 24 hours a day.

We asked one on the guides at the Fairbanks Pioneer Park for a restaurant suggestion and she recommended the close-by Airport Way Family Restaurant. It is open 24hours/day and breakfast is served anytime. The food was forgettable but the cigarette smoke smell was not!! It is one of the last two restaurants in Fairbanks that still has a smoking section.... More

What a surprise to find a lunch costing about $6 in Alaska!? We had a bowl of soup and a very generous sized home-made chicken salad sandwich that was very tasty. We went back again and it was closed for remodeling for a week, but I would definitely make this a habit if I lived here. The waitress was very... More

Their food is reasonably price and their service is fast. My aunts and I walked in , were seated, within minutes waited on, and shortly after breakfast was served. My aunts are there for the 1st time and I told them anytime I travel to Fairbanks this is wear I go to eat. My experience has always been positive.

The last time we came here the wait staff was not friendly or honest. We waited a LONG time before being served. My wife ordered roast beef. When she served our food the meat was WHITE!?! My wife said there must be some mistake as she ordered roast beef. The waiter insisted that the meat (looked like roast turkey) was... More

Spouse and I had breakfast here our first morning out exploring Fairbanks. We decided to have the $4.95 breakfast special which included two eggs, a large pile of hashed Browns, and toast. Our orders were cooked perfectly as requested from the kitchen. Add coffee to the final tab and we ended up with a satisfying and relatively inexpensive breakfast!

We had just arrived in Fairbanks after a long rainy day of driving. We wanted comfort food! That is just what we found. We had chicken and rice soup and a hamburger that seemed to be made by hand. We had good service and found the prices to be reasonable. We were so happy to have found a clean local... More

Husband and I took the kids for an after late movie dinner treat thinking it's better than the conventional fast food. Holy cow were we wrong. Like some others we toggled between the other family restaurant where we have had lousy food and service across the street. The restaurant offers smoking and non smoking. There is no such thing when... More
