Sketchy area but awesome food

I don't go downtown to eat too much but happened to be there on business. He recommended it and it was an awesome burger. Place is a little dirty, it's definitely a mom n pop type place. But food and service were great!

A small local cafe which serves good basic food. They do have reindeer sausage and meats.. As I said local flavor. The food is what you would expect at a local local restaurant. Good value for money, local crowds.

Awesome place for lunch! It gets packed around noon so it's best to get there early. The halibut sandwich is on point and the burgers are juicy and delicious.

This was our second time to visit. We ordered the cheeseburger and fries again. Bread was fresh. Food was ok but if you want a better burger go up the street to the lounge at the Lofts. The staff here needs to be a little friendlier. This is a cash only restaurant. They have an ATM inside. Was going to... More

My burger was a little overcooked and my fries were a little under cooked. Service was slow if I got any at all. The server came by only once to drop off my food only. Never came to refill my coffee or asked how I was doing, nothing.

This little hole in the wall had been open for 50 years or so. You can tell they were able to stay open with such good food. The hash browns were delicious, eggs perfect, the bacon was almost perfect. My son and MIL adored their hot cake. The reason it's not five stars is they don't take credit cards (although... More

Hands down - best halibut in Anchorage! Grown and raised in Alaska, I'm disappointed this was my first halibut sandwich from the White Spot! Nice quiet place to visit for breakfast, lunch, or an early dinner... They also serve nice cold Alaskan beer on tap!

Had halibut fish and chips, fish was good. Also had a hamburger, it was okay, fries a little greasy, not my favorite, but fish yummy. Service good, mom and pop restaurant.
