You don't come here for the salad bar!

Prime rib, best in the state. Sorry, what else is there to say? This is what it's known for, & the reputation is well earned.

If you love red meat, this probably is the best place in Fairbanks, well in the Fairbanks district. located just on the edge of Fox, it's about a 15 min drive out of Fairbanks. Lovers of beef rave about this place. I tried seafood this time, the King Crab legs were very good, a good portion. The prime ribs and... More

The best salad bar in Fairbanks hands down. Prime rib is the main attraction here, and it's a solid 9/10, and available every night. They do shrimp well also. They bring you some bread with dinner that is wonderful. The rice pilaf has not been very good the few times I've tried it. Everything else there is good.

Going to the Turtle Cub outside of Fairbanks, AK in the little town of Fox is well worth it. As the State is very large, so are their food entrees especially their prime rib. My wife was able to get two meals out of her small prime rib cut. They have various delectable seafood items as well and the King... More

Even though they are famous for the prime rib, I would recommend their king crab legs more. It's juicy & fresh. Prime rib is good, but king crab legs are better IMHO.

Turtle consistently serves outstanding prime rib and large prawns. Their salad bar is excellent. Don't expect a lengthy menu or many choices. Visit just for their specialties and for a true Alaskan experience.

We always come here when we visit and it is always great! The crab is the best around and the salad bar is great.

I used to really like this place but then I realized they sell themselves as the best prime rib around. Since they assert that, I am basing my review on that. To that end, the prime rib is just okay. It may swing all the way up to good occasionally but for a restaurant to mainly serve prime rib it... More

Everyone said in Fairbanks that this is where you need to go to eat. Glad we did. The people were very, very friendly. Very crowded for a small restaurant, DO make reservations, they fill up fast after 6 pm. I had the prime rib, MR, was excellent. wife had the halibut, was OK, not great. DO GO there if you... More

Turtle Club is a wonderful place to eat. This is a "Meat and Potatoes" kind of restaurant (with fish of course, it is Alaska). I had the prime rib and baked potato and it was excellent. The restaurant also provides a great salad bar with each meal. Our service was also top notch. If you are in the Fairbanks area... More
