I was in Anchorage attending a workshop in late September. A group of us wanted to try a local restaurant so we asked the hotel doorman for a good place. The Glacier Brew House was his recommendation. We ate there two times even though somewhat disappointed the first. You have your choice of sitting in a more formal dining area... More

The Glacier Brewhouse is always busy, but I've never felt neglected. Quick and courteous service, decent food, clean and interesting surroundings, good beer.

Food was good. Atmosphere a bit loud and very crowded. Even with a reservation we still had to wait a bit.

Food is so/so, but good selection of hand crafted beer, and on a sunny warm late spring, summer, or fall day, their upper out door deck is the best place to be in Anchorage.

Beautiful restaurant and incredibly busy. No wonder, the food, service and price value relationship were outstanding. Because of its size, and location, we suspected it would be a typical tourist trap. That's where we couldn't have been more misguided. What a wonderful surprise. The food was not just good, it really was great. The service was very good but especially... More

A very nice place, this was on my to do list in Anchorage and we were not disappointed! You will normally have to wait, but it's worth waiting for! Their bread pudding is just heavenly! A must stop in Anchorage!

The appearance of the food was the first sign I had an enjoyable experience headed my way. The aroma and the taste of the salmon gave me the impression it had just been pulled out of the ocean and is probably the freshes I have ever had. The staff was friendly and greeted my companion and I with "real" smiles... More

This restaurant was on our list to try on a trip to Anchorage. Since they would take reservations this was our choice for our first night. The menu was varied and the food was outstanding. The fried calamari is the best we've ever had. It was buttermilk batter and served with jalapeño-lime aioli. They had us hooked. We ended up... More

Before coming to Anchorage to visit my son who is in the army I did my homework and read lots of reviews on trip advisor. The glacier brewhouse was top on my list, and I'm so glad I went. The atmosphere was warm and cozy, the alaskan brewed beer that is made right there was great to drink while watching... More

Owned by the same owners as Orso, brew house has a good selection of seafood and non seafood. However some of the menu items could be found at both restaurants. The pizza was good and my coworkers enjoyed their seafood dishes. Always crowded so arrive early or anticipate a wait.
