Great restaurant but you definitely need reservations. They have homemade root beer and cream soda as well doing their own beer brewing. Service was excellent.

Son had a nice looking roasted chicken with root veggies... More

My wife and I visited for our fifth anniversary. Now I'm not a fancy restaurant type of guy so I had my reservations. The food and beverages are reasonably priced for the quality. Excellent crab cakes, excellent prime rib and steak, and my favorite excellent beer. Excellent restaurant.

This place has a great theme of what you would expect in Alaska, the food is Pub food, and includes king crab legs and a large variety of beers, we really enjoyed this place.

Came here on a Monday evening (6:30pm) with co-workers in town for a conference and the place was packed. They do take reservations and that would be recommended. The place had a lodge-like feel to it with a large fireplace in the middle. Our waitress did a good job at first of taking our drink and food order. However, the... More

Stayed across the street at the Westmark and holy crap, this place was amazing. Ate here three times. Delicious beer, really great, diverse menu and beautiful presentation of yummy food. Great service, too. Really, it couldn't have been better.

Despite making reservations a month in advance they sar us all over the restaurant until we complained. Then our food took 1.5 hours to arrive. My wifes salad was frozen cheese, a few... More

The Brewhouse has awesome cocktails, great food and timely and professional service. It's a bit noisy, but everything else about it makes it worth going.
