“Above average, but not amazing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

My friend recommended this place to us, so we went for lunch but we more or less ended up eating breakfast items, as they're available all day. The plus side is i could enjoy a beer with my meal, and there are the usual excellent offerings from local microbreweries. I had a local stout which was simply amazing. The food was good but I'd say average value... neither cheap nor overly expensive. You'll often need to wait for a table, as it is a very busy restaurant. Atmosphere is nice and bright and the service is good also. Overall, I was satisfied but not tremendously impressed, but I must say I would eat here again.

“Love this place - I eat there everytime I go to ANC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Love the breakfast at Snow City. Waitstaff are friendly. Seems like this restaurant is straight out of Portland, OR - in a good way.
They will make the bacon extra crispy, if you ask. The oatmeal is a healthy choice with fresh fruit. The coffee is not bad, and they keep it flowing.
Prices are a little high, but so is every place in Alaska - the food is all shipped up after all.

“Great Food, Close to Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This was the best meals we had in Anchorage. We walked from Captain Cook hotel. It is under five minute walk. We went for breakfast on our first morning and then went back for the second day. We also got lunch items to go. Reasonably priced and the food is really good. Made Mom and teenage boys very full.
