We've eaten at Cookie Jar several times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They are always very accommodating to my children, offering crayons and even small paper coffee cups so they can have a "latte" like mommy! We've never been disappointed in their food, and they have a very friendly staff. An excellent stop for family dinner, lunch with your gal... More

Enjoyed our first breakfast here. The food was good. Just came back from dinner and the pot roast was delicious. Nice chunks of roast with mashed potatoes and young green beans. The best minestrone soup that we both ever had, The roast just melted in your mouth, This place is a must go in Fairbanks especially for dinner.

After having a horrible experience at another Fairbanks restaurant, we took a friend's recommendation to go to the Cookie Jar. We were worried it would have mainly baked goods, but this is a full-service restaurant with salads, lunch, dinner, AND those yummy baked goods. They have a good variety to choose from on their menu for comparable prices. One of... More

We got a couple of recommendations for this place... so we decided to go after visiting the Creamery Field Bird Sanctuary nearby. It is one of the places shown on Guy Fieri's show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. The food was good. My husband had the halibut wrap and loved it. I had the stromboli and it was good but not... More

This restaurant had been recommended by someone we met on our visit to Alaska and we were not directed wrong. The Steak Pottage and the Willy Burger were wonderful but the best part of the meal was the waiter, Justin. He did a wonderful job and made our visit a wonderful experience. The burger was a little on the dry... More

We bought some cookies and a few other fresh deserts at the checkout. Stop in if your in Fairbanks. Side note: Cadillac Ct. is a tiny little road off of Bainbridge... More

This was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel. The food was really good, but the service was slow.

We ate lunch here yesterday while visiting in Fairbanks. The lunch food served was awesome! The service was fantastic. Our waiter, Justin, worked with us with a salad and a sliced apple to top it off. We did not have to wait, our waiter anticipated our needs and the food was excellent! It was so good that we chose to... More

We chose to eat here because of the reviews in Trip Advisor. It was so good! There was more food than we could eat and it was absolutely delicious. The cheese-steak had the perfect amount of cheese to steak ratio and the burger was large, juicy, and flavorful. Both had a freshly cooked bun.

So good we went in every morning of our stay in Fairbanks. Great homemade food, appropriate pricing based upon portion and quality. Libby was our server both mornings and remembered us the second day, which is saying a lot considering how crazy busy they were the first time we visited. She did a great job.
