Description: You will know the moment you walk in that this is not your typical brew pub. The scent of the alder wood grill and wood fired oven, the energy of the sparking exhibition cooking line and the glow of the brewery delight your senses. The BrewHouse features rotisserie grilled meats, the freshest Alaskan seafood, wood fired pizza and award winning hand crafted ales. The BrewHouse is Anchorage’s downtown landmark restaurant-“Where Alaskans meet Alaskans”.

“the place where Anchorage meets the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

i went there almost by accident, because it was near my hotel and discovered a packed restaurant, usually a good sign. Food was outstanding, both fresh and tasty as well as spicy. I had the herb crusted salmon and it was a pure delight. I wish I had been hungrier to taste some of the other specialties of the world cuisine restaurant. Simply the best!

“How is the restaurant not rated #1 in Anchorage?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Amazing. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. My husband and I stayed for 2 days in Anchorage after an Alaskan cruise and in those 2 days we went to the Glacier Brewhouse twice (once for dinner and the following day for lunch). Yes, it was busy but we did not wait overly long for a table and it was easy to see why it was busy, and would have easily been worth a much longer wait. The wait staff was wonderful, watching the grill in action was amazing, the on-the-spot brewed beer was unbelievable and the food was some of the best I've ever eaten. Try the caribou pizza, you will not be disappointed. We went two years ago and we still reflect back on our amazing experience here. The best restaurant we went to in our twelve days in Alaska, bar none.

“Friends place for sure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Great place to have dinner with friends!
The food is very good and the service is as well. Every time we have gone here, it is packed with people. It is pricey but tasty. They have other things to eat rather than seafood. Families are always there but no kids menu.
