Good Lunch - Convenient to Anchorage Museum

My husband and I were in Anchorage in August of 2015 and were glad to find a good restaurant so conveniently located inside the Anchorage Museum, which was our actual destination. The menu offered a number of interesting choices; and we enjoyed our lunch, as well as appreciating the quick service.

I was thankfully seated promptly, despite a larger party barging in front of me and trying to follow the server while she seated me. There was no sign showing that you were to wait there and I saw another party seat themselves. After I sat down, however, I was ignored while the larger party was seated and orders taken. I... More

Lovely cafe to stop in after viewing the museum. Fresh menu choices; we had delicious salads and a scrumptious desert.

Good food and a full bar. This was a nice find inside the Anchorage Museum (definitely a great place to visit). Soup was very good. The rest of menu was fine. A modern place to rest a bit while seeing the museum.

Unfortunately I was not able to test out their menu on our visit. We waited 30 minutes to get a seat and than never to be helped again once we sat down. THe staff was extremely rude and pissy. I wasn't able to get the one young ladies name, but she wouldn't help anyone and than would snap at the... More

This very sleek restaurant is inviting and really hits the spot after browsing the museum for a few hours. The Alaskan Cobb Salad was fresh, tasty, and quite filling. Wine was available...but it wasn't 5 o'clock!

This is a great little lunch stop. We had some sandwiches with coleslaw and fries. The slaw was really good with fennel added and the fries had garlic and parmesan on them. The décor is modern and trendy. There is a large wine selection too. This was convenient for us as the Park to Park connection bus stop is here... More

Surroundings are clean and modern and you wouldn't know it was in a museum. You can enter it without paying to get into the museum proper. $15 for a shrimp salad which was large and tasty. Great value and perfect for lunch when visiting Anchorage and/or the museum.

This is very handy if you are at the museum. The food was ok and you is a good option if you don't want to walk to find other options. Have lunch then get back into the extensive museum.
