We visited because of a promotional offer they had with the sled dog museum next door. The food and fudge was delicious, and the staff was very friendly. As a side-note, their selection of fridge magnets is better than many other places we visited while in Alaska. We loved the museum next door, too. :)

We stopped for lunch here because it was recommended by our Celebrity Cruises tour guide during our stop in down town Fairbanks. The line was out the door, but they were very efficient in handling the crowd. They have a small gift shop as well. We had sandwiches and tried the fudge. It was all good. I especially enjoyed the...

We had sandwiches and they were delicious. The sandwiches are large so we would have had to go back to get dessert later.

My family and I had lunch at The Fudge Pot. We ordered sandwiches for lunch. Most sandwiches were $11 and included a drink and chips or/fruit cup. Our sandwiches were good. I ordered a fruit cup. The fruit cup was good. I personally wish they has a bigger chip selection. The options were plain or BBQ chips. I was really... More

We were part of a tour group and this restaurant was suggested by our guide for lunch. It was pouring down rain when we entered and my husband took a seat and I ordered for us which apparently is the wrong thing to do here. The waitress let me have it for that. I ordered and stood in line to... More

Small family owned cafe. Had great seafood chowder and coffee. Definitely worth the stop. Fresh made sandwiches. Very busy at times as the busses stop here

this is the place to go. If there was one type of fudge, there were 30 to choose from....everything from 'regular' fudge to chocolate caramel sea salt and everything in between.

Souvenirs and small gifts available for the visitor. If you have a sweet tooth, it is maybe worth a quick stop to enjoy this place! Prices worth... More

We finally located this in the old downtown area with our phone. This shop has many really cute gifts which are made in Alaska and in nice taste. We bought some fudge. It's over $15. a pound and they have lots of different flavors. The clerk was very friendly and helpful. I bought a variety as you can just get... More
