Met four former colleagues at Turkey Red for lunch. Fantastic, eclectic food and atmosphere. This is not the kind of restaurant you would expect to find on the "Last Frontier" more like a bistro in New York. Excellent service and very unique recipe pairings.

I've eaten here for years. It's the only place for a nice dinner in Palmer. Fresh, local ingredients, comfortable and clean. I often come for lunch as well - amazing soup and sandwich deals. I love their breakfast too.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to the Knik River Lodge as part of a photography tour. Parking was ample but most important of all the food was excellent. There is a big variety to choose from and service was fast. Popular place with the locals.

Turkey Red is officially on my radar of good places to dine in the Anchorage area. After hearing several friends rave about it, I finally got to check it out for myself about a month ago and I was quite impressed. Despite its location in a strip mall, Turkey Red boasts a lovely interior. The décor is classy, the music... More

A local suggested Turkey Red and our lunch was great. The food and homey service (Rebecca and Faye) have us going back for breakfast this morning as we pass through Palmer again, this time from Valdez to Talkeetna.

Had a terrific dinner here while overnighting in Palmer. The menu is interesting and ingredients are sourced locally when possible. Pleasant dining room without bering fussy. Fun and helpful service. Altogether, not a bad combination.

I had no idea about where to eat when I drove into Palmer as I had not checked Trip Advisor. Fortunately, I found this place by accident as it is next door to the local "Chamber of Commerce" and I needed some tourist information. I enjoyed a grilled portobello sandwich with a cup of soup and both were delicious. The... More

Slow service and high prices. Skip this one unless you are looking for something that is more New Tork style than Alaskan

this was recommended by our B&B host. We ate dinner and stopped for lunch the next day. Food had unique and delicious variations. The macaroons were super yummy.
