Daily Happy Hour: 3-6pm & 9-Close. Known by the locals simply as "Simon's," we are an Anchorage landmark with beautiful panoramic views overlooking Cook Inlet of Mount Susitna and the Alaska Range giving guests a true Alaska dining experience. Our classic American grill has been artfully serving quality USDA prime-aged steak, fresh and innovative seafood since 1978. Chef James Sheppard has worked at Simon & Seafort's for 16 years and is an expert at preparing Alaska seafood. Crab stuffed Alaska halibut, Asiago crusted Halibut Cheeks, Wild Alaska salmon and rock salt roasted prime rib. Take advantage of our two hours of validated parking in the Captain Cook garage and enjoy a daily lunch, dinner or perhaps a special business or romantic occasion in our inviting and spacious dining room. Join our longtime friends and frequent visitors who have enjoyed many fond memories over the years as our guests and see why we are known locally for the best view and best seafood in Anchorage.

Best restaurant in Anchorage!

All of those things make the prices worth it. Make sure to mention in your reservation if you are... read more

Recommend Brandy Ice, it's not on the menus but it's an ole time favorite for years. Food was good, but I would not recommend the Étouffée it was the smallest shrimp I've ever seen, steam clams way over cooked but everything else was good.

Had a table next to the window with a great view. Atmosphere was good and service was okay. Ordered the fillet steak, looked great and didn't disappoint. Not cheap but well worth it.

Excellent in every way! (except one) I ordered the Seafood éTouffée - but it was missing the reindeer sausage that was listed in the menu description. "Daniel" came out to apologize and tell me they were out of it, and that it was only 3% reindeer anyway. Then as we were about to finish our meal, he came out to... More

We came here to end our trip to Alaska and it truly made our adventure all the more unforgettable. If you love sea food, you will love this terrific restaurant. Stop for appetizers or drinks in the inviting, old-world bar, then head to the dining room for your amazingly fresh sea food meal served with loads of excellent service. Try... More

We've dined at Simon & Seafort's Saloon & Grill three times now, and have yet to be disappointed in what we were served. Although we sometimes are unable to eat everything on our plate, we are usually so contented with the high quality of the food that it just doesn't matter. The helpings are large, and the quality is consistently... More

It was a little hard to find, because of small signage, but so worth the hunt! The atmosphere is beautiful, but interesting and accessible. Not too stuffy. Our server did a wonderful job. He was so friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the fresh bread and butter-some of the best we've had in a restaurant. The buttermilk fried calamari appetizer with... More

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor! We appreciate you taking the time to write such kind words. You picked some of our most popular items. We tried taking the spinach salad off the menu once and there was a riot! We do hope to make it back in again soon. More

This is a very nice restaurant and if planning to have a group I would highly recommend making reservations at least a week in advance. We were there for Easter Sunday so the special menu was available. Although their dishes are on the pricier side, the servings are plentiful with left overs to take home. I had the prime rib,...

This place has the best calamari!! The food is fresh and the seafood is prepared fresh and too order. If you like margaritas, then this is your place. The Scratch margarita is the best ever! Hands down!! Only bad side of Simone's is. They are aittle Spendy.
