Everything from the service to dessert was fantastic! Our server was very personable and the salmon was the BEST salmon I had in Alaska! The drinks were great and not watered down like a lot of restaurants. The peanutbutter pie is amazing! First timer and it was a GREAT experience!

What a fun spot. We had a great meal. The service, food and atmosphere was great. My salmon was delicious. We would return for another fabulous meal. The atmosphere was very welcoming and made us feel like we had arrived in Alaska.

Glacier Brewhouse always has a great atmosphere. For this Friday night visit we reserved ahead of time on OpenTable to avoid a long wait, but a table was not ready for us when we arrive and we waited for about 10 minutes past our reservation time. We ordered a calamari starter that was saltier than necessary but still quite good.... More

Food was lovely, but the real treats were the drinks. Great beers, and my daughter loved her homebrewed cream soda! Large, delicious crab legs, creative salads, tasty breads.

The thing I like most about this restaurant is their willingness to accommodate their customer's tastes. When I asked for a vegetarian option of one of their pasta dishes, they not only removed the meat but added extra vegetables and cheese. Great flavors and excellent service!

Arguably one of our best meals in Anchorage. As others have pointed out - it is incredibly loud. But we like the vibe of the restaurant. The beers are quite good (IPA quite good) but it was really the halibut that made this meal. The quality and freshness of the fish was outstanding and the mild yet very flavorful sauce... More

We hit this place for our last dinner in Anchorage. The food was solid. My dad had salmon, I split a pasta with my mom and my hubby had pizza. We also had flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Even though the place was packed we got good service, food came out fast, and the wait was not as bad as... More

First night in anchorage and went here for dinner. It was busy, which showed it was popular, and justifiably! We had the crab legs, steak, scallops and the corn bread. Great food and great service!
