“Wonderful beer and pizza. Worth the wait?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Having lived in Anchorage for 17 years, I've been lucky to watch Moose's Tooth grow from the beginning.

The pizza is wonderful... all the "regular" toppings for pizza are available, but what really stands out is the range of not-so-usual toppings and combinations. There are a list of regular pizzas, as well as specials that change every week or so. The pizza crust is chewy and wonderful, and the toppings are generous.

There are several salads, sandwiches, and appetizers on the menu, but there's not a lot of choice if you aren't up for pizza.

The craft brewed beers are wonderful! They even brew their own root beer.

The only drawback is that there is often as much as an hour wait for a table. If you can find seats at the bar, the full menu is available. If you are with a group, or don't care to sit at the bar, grab a drink and find a spot in one of the waiting areas until you can get a table.

Carry-out is also available - for the pizza as well as the beer (in growlers). Your best bet is to call the order in, as the wait can be an hour or more, even for take-out at busy times!

“Sensational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This place came highly rated on TripAdvisor and didn't disappoint. My colleague was asked for ID at the bar and as she didn't have any was denied alcohol (she is 36), but this is not a reflection so much of the restaurant as of Alaskan law. After that, things went swimmingly. The beers are amazing and they have more range than you can handle in one sitting. The chicken wings with habenero sauce were fantastic and the pizza simply incredible. Busy place, we had to wait for 30 mins but could easily amuse ourselves at the bar during that time. Atmosphere is great and our waiter was stellar. Quite simply, this place is not to be missed.

“Our favorite in Anchorage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Moose Tooth is always the choice for dinner or lunch out. Food is imaginative and very tasty. Service is good even when they are very busy which is most of the time. We try others places but always come back to Moose Tooth.

“Can't wait to go back,again and again and again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Been two times to this fine establishment. Both times, during the weekend, and late at night. This last time, went around 10pm and no waiting for a table, on a Saturday night. The first time, went on a late Friday night, and had to wait a bit (10 minutes?). They give you a vibrating pager, if you have to wait. We walked around and looked at the old concert posters on the walls.
The pizza is amazing!! (I should put AMAZING in all caps) Had the medium tomato/pepperoni.
The crust is not thick, but not super thin. The red sauce was just right. The onions were not overwhelming. My son and I had to ask for a to go box. The next morning, he had it for breakfast. Yes, for breakfast, it is that good the next day.
We don't live in Anchorage. But, we will always make it a point to have a meal here. I saw that there are also lunch specials during the weekday. Maybe next time.

“Casual dining surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This restaurant is well known by locals for it's excellent fare, not the least of which is it's own brew.Hence there can be a wait at busy times. Take in the brew whilst waiting on the outdoor patio. It's worth the wait. Pizza's with excellent ingredients made the right way.
