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.

Locals top spot for halibut lunch. Batter halibut or halibut sandwich. Kind of a hole in the wall lunch spot. Lunch counter and a few table. Close to the center of downtown Anchorage. One of town's high volume halibut location despite their small size.

We stopped by on our trip up to Fairbanks and WOW! It was by far the best halibut sandwich we have ever had! Five of us ordered the halibut sandwiches with either fries or slaw and we all said the same thing, it was amazing!!! We sat at the counter and watched them batter the fish and fry it fresh... More

This little cafe really fills up about noon, and the reason is excellent food. It's a cafe with stools, booths and cafe tables. They aren't particularly fast, but they turn out what may well be the best sandwiches you're going to find anywhere in Anchorage. You can get Alaskan Amber to go with your sandwiches, and you'll leave very satisfied... More

I've been going to The White Spot Cafe since I was a child and it's never failed to be about the tastiest place in town. The ambience isn't much but the people are incredible, the conversation is fantastic and the food is amazing. It's a great little place for a good burger, hand made fries, and the halibut, oh the...

This little cafe on 4th Ave in Anchorage serves a delicious halibut sandwich. It is a very busy location especially around noon. Go in relatively early to make sure you get the halibut. They do run out of fish! Delicious!!!!
