Everything we ordered was excellent; very generous portions; friendly servers-especially Peggy! Bread pudding was the best we've ever eaten.

Food was good although expensive, pretty location along the river. But service was very slow, we waited a long time for our entree and our dessert.

The food was less than sub par. The vegetables were very bland, had no seasoning and arrived cold. My pork sirloin tasted like it was prepared by a high school senior in home ec class. The food was pricey, far too pricey for the meal...More

We were taken to Chena's for lunch during a day of kayaking and cycling in Fairbanks and what a treat! Excellent soups, sandwiches and desserts in casual setting and very good service make sure that you go here for a meal while in Fairbanks.

Nice place to eat on the Chena River in Fairbanks. The food was good and on warm days there is ample deck space to eat outdoors.....The prices were a little on the high side.

I checked the website and I do not see that they have gift cards, but I suspect they might. If you search for the website (Chena's Alaskan Grill), you can probably ask.
