Just off the plane, first night in Anchorage, a little rummy -- Brewhouse was absolutely perfect. The beer offerings are good (and served quickly) and their wine list, though small, has enough variety and quality for most wine drinkers. We started with calamari, which were excellent -- fresh and full-flavored. Salads were the blue cheese and Caesar, both very tasty... More

Had to make a reservation to eat here at 4:30 in the afternoon in order to eat there. That's okay because of all the places we ate at on this vacation this one was one of the best. I had the pizza. My husband had the Ahi tuna. Both of us were absolutely thrilled with our food and with the... More

I was expecting a more pub type of atmosphere since it is a brewery but it is more like a fancy restaurant. The food is delicious!

Ate lunch here one day before a bike ride around the Tony Knowles trail and before our flight home later that evening. Had a delicious pizza that was plenty big enough for two. Beer was excellent. It was a bit crowded for a Tuesday at 1:00 PM, but perhaps that was cruise ship traffic. Our waitress, Amber, was attentive and... More

We heard a lot of cruise groups go here so we thought it would be overly commercialized, but we were impressed with the beer. This was one of 6 breweries we visited while in Alaska and I would recommend trying it.

Lovely restaurant with great brew pub atmosphere. Friendly service and packed with tourists coming into town from cruise ships and local hotels. Two of us had salmon and seafood chowder. The chowder was great,,good taste , thick and creamy. The salmon was overlooked , salty and so dry we asked for melted butter to drizzle on it to moisten it... More

So everyone we met recommended this restaurant, but with the name Brewhouse, we figured it would be more pub style, beer, etc., but we decided to give it a try. We went on a Monday evening in July at 5:30, had an hour wait for a party of three, but it was definitely worth it. Not what we expected at... More

I think this is one of the best restaurants in Anchorage. The menu is extensive and includes many Alaskan seafood options. Coupled with the locally brewed beer, what more could you ask for? This place gets really busy, so i would recommend a reservation to avoid a long wait. You will not be disappointed!

There were four of us who just flew in to Anchorage that day and needed dinner. A man at the hotel suggested we try another establishment, but we trusted the reviews on this site. Again, it was a home run! We all had seafood and it was marvelous. The service was real good and nice portions. It was a nice... More

I just had dinner at the Brewhouse, and it was absolutely some of the best food I've had. There was a bit of a wait, but it's worth it. I had the pizza and it was wonderful. Thin crust, just the right amount of sauce, five cheeses, and everything was fresh. My friend had the burger and he felt it... More
