Food is good, getting a little too pricey. Very noisy in there, not a place for a quiet conversation.. Often has a wait if you don't reserve ahead. Service is usually good. Good menu selection, have several favorites.

Stopped in for a quick bite after a long day of flying. Wasn't expecting much for food quality, but I got the ahi tuna and it was prepared perfectly. The presentation, the taste, the temperature all perfect. Also the IPA was delicious and the service quick and efficient. Would definitely recommend.

Glacier Brewhouse is a local favorite. Great bar and excellent food. One of our favorite menu items is the fish and chips, but their steaks are great as well as all the seafood fare. If you like good craft beer the Brewhouse is a good stop. We like the casual, laid back atmosphere, center fireplace, warm woods throughout and, especially... More

We chose to eat here during our brief stay in Anchorage because I had researched that they could easily accommodate a gluten free diet for one member in our party--they have a GF menu! The food was good and the atmosphere lively and the GF menu was an absolute plus.

This is a popular eatery, but not a good one. The food is okay - lots of trendy dishes, none done well. Good service, good atmosphere, crowded & expensive. Overall - Meh
