we liked the food, the location was a bit noisy, but it was on a saturday evening, so ... service was gentle , the place was clean. To be repeated.

We spent 3 nights in Anchorage and our best meal was at Sacks cafe, we loved that the fish was cooked correctly (and not overcooked). The place is small and well known by the locals so it is a good idea to make a reservation. The wine selection is good and pleasant.

Sacks Cafe is a small and charming restaurant which serves delicious, fresh seafood. We shared an excellent appetizer of king salmon tempura roll, and enjoyed the king salmon and halibut entrees, followed by a tasty dessert. The wine list was excellent. Our server was helpful and engaging. Sacks Cafe should be a destination when you visit Anchorage.

I had the Mariscada. It's a shrimp, halibut, salmon, clam, scallop delight bathed in a deliciously spiced sauce and fragrant jasmine rice topped with basil shreds and watercress microgreens. They really know how to manage flavors.

We wanted fresh unadulterated Alaskan seafood in an elegant ambience. Their menu only had jambalaya (with too many non-seafood ingredients), or salmon tacos. For our one splurge seafood meal, this wasn’t the place for us. It was really noisy too, so we left and didn’t actually eat there.

There are not may restaurants inn Anchorage that can accomodate a group of 13 but Sacks Cafe was up for the challenge. They have a great menu selection with more than just seafood and a wide variety of local beers. This is not an inexpensive place to eat but the quality of food, the plate presentation and the service was... More

The service was great and they kept the flow going even with a larger group. The food tasted great and it was within walking distance of our hotel, the Historic Anchorage Hotel. We would recommend the seafood as it is local and prepared very well.

Very popular and for good reason. I had a lunch and a dinner here and both were excellent. Nice panzanella salad for lunch with lemon vinaigrette. Perfect light meal. I decided to return another night for dinner. I had a beautiful salmon for dinner and they cooked it rare when I asked. I like my salmon less done than most... More

Found this place while walking around downtown and decided to give it a try. Very eclectic interior. Food was amazing. I had some seared scallops over polenta with some killer sauce. Soup was great too. Very good wine selection. The wait staff was right on and super friendly. I'll be back next week after a trip to Goodnews for some... More

I went there for dinner 3 times and it was amazing every time! Service is friendly and attentive. They won't let you have an empty water glass. Food is absolutely delicious. Their salmon is outstanding! I also love the bruschetta, crab cakes, and soups. And the duck is yummy as well, especially the roasted potatoes it comes with! If you... More
