I've been looking for a replacement for Sunrise Grill as a go to breakfast spot. This is a great place with good food, especially for breakfast and chicken burgers. Decent parking for the location and small waiting area.

My wife and I were upset that we found this place on the last day of our vacation. We only had breakfast here but it was by far the best breakfast of the four different places we had breakfast. Their atmosphere and food is the best in Anchorage. Other places were not even close. It is obvious that the owner... More

lots of menu choices, large portions. Came recommended by the locals. I had the fresh hand breaded chicken strips and they were delicious! Others had the Burgers which looked terrific as well. I would have liked to go back for breakfast

Food was pretty good, but way too much. Service could have been friendlier. I could have done without the politics on the menu.

You gotta try the Andy's Awesome burger. We usually have at least 1 a month! It is a favorite in our household. I haven't had a dessert I loved yet and probably won't keep trying.

From the menu (printed as a newspaper circa Goldrush) to the quippy little signs and beautiful artwork to the Alaskan-style portions - this place delivers on all levels! Sourdough toast is to die for! Chicken fried steak is the thickest cut I have ever eaten, covered in a thick and hearty country white gravy with just enough sage to make... More

My wife and I have had breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Kriner's and enjoyed every meal. The menu is "typical diner," very delicious and reasonably priced. The servings are large-we always end up taking some home for our next meal. It is too bad some people can't stomach conservative Alaskan ideals and values and let what a lot of Alaskans... More

Nothing special about the diner food. Leroys up the street is just as good and less expensive. Was disappointed that the owners political views got mixed up with cooking and serving food. When someone feels inclined to place their political party on the front of the menu I will certainly find other places to dine where I know what I... More

They are known for good food at a good price and with good service. The serving sizes are large and there is a wide of variety of entrees to serve from. I do not hesitate to recommend Kriner's if you enjoy diner style food...nothing fancy, just good food.

We stopped here after a glacier tour in Whittier and found something to please everyone in our family (including our 11 and 14 year old girls, who can be picky). Everything was clearly made from scratch, including real turkey on my turkey sandwich, freshly shredded hashbrowns, flavorful meatloaf and real mashed potatoes. We came toward the end of the day,...
