It was my last night in Alaska, and I wanted to eat fresh salmon again before I left. I had been reading reviews of restaurants in Anchorage, and Bridge Seafood sounded as if it would have what I wanted. It took me awhile to find the place because it is located in a kind of industrial area. But, then again, I may have taken a somewhat circuitous route to get there too. There is a chain motel nearby so it can't be that hard to find. The restaurant itself really is a bridge over a stream. It's long and narrow with gleaming wood floors, and windows on both sides of the restaurant offer views of people fishing. There is a fairly busy walking trail along the stream. Since I was dining alone, I was glad I had a nice view to enjoy. The lady sitting across from me had several fishing poles leaning against the wall and was a bit annoyed that her husband was still fishing. Maybe they'll cook your catch? I don't know.
This place was exactly what I wanted for my last Alaskan meal. I was dining alone and the server was very solicitous and helpful. I chose a beer and she commented that it was a good choice as the brewery was right down the street. I'm sold on Alaskan microbrews!
I did order a simple grilled salmon with roasted vegetables and it was excellent. One of the reasons I had chosen the Bridge was because of its salad bar which advertised fresh shrimp and crab legs. The salad bar itself was excellent. I can't say anything about dessert because I skipped it and went back for more crab legs. This was a very enjoyable dining experience, and I would love to go here again. I was there early on a Monday, like 5 p.m., and there were only a few tables occupied, but by the time I left it was starting to get busier. The place was not pricey by Alaska standards. I felt as if I had gotten my money's worth and enjoyed the restaurant's ambiance, good service, and excellent food.
