“I'm Guessing This is Palmer's Best Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Nice ambiance, great service, terrific food, can't be beat. We had three different entrees, all were excellent. They buy locally. They buy organic. Does it get any better?

“Good food adequate atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

IWe ate dinner at Turkey Red and felt the food was good but the service was great. It was a little overpriced for the style of food but everyone enjoyed the meal and the attentive staff. The desserts were the best part and the cookies we took home were amazing. I might try this for lunch but probably not dinner again.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Turkey Red has a very fine menu and the food is excellent. Prices are average. Staff is professional and courteous. Since the food is good, the place attracts lots of people so oftentimes there are lines during lunch hour; so maybe avoid the Noon rush hour.

“A place you'll try and definitely go back to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Okay, getting a seat was tricky. No one really "helped" us. Lots of employees walked by us, but didn't offer to help seat us or put our name on a list, etc. Once we spoke up, employees were helpful. We sat at a bar area that faced the parking lot, but there is a nice quaint area if you prefer. The Clam chowder and pastrami sandwich was one of 2 specials of the day, I loved it. The seasoning was wonderful and rye bread had a good crunch to it. Breads were all fresh. Location is in a building that houses other businesses. There is a boutique chocolate store there. Will report on that when I eat the chocolate!

“Great offering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I went in for take out after we had just landed in anchorage. The waitress, knowing right away that we were only getting something to go, say us at a table, brought us water without us asking, and bread while we waited, and the restaurant was about to close in less than 15 minutes. We enjoyed some drinks as well. Tremendous hospitality.
The food was very good and came promptly. Palmer was a cute little town, and Turkey Red was a great, classy offering in it.
