We stopped there because it was packed and apparently a local favorite. The Breakfast was Good, The decor is in desperate need of attention.

This is kind of like the Cheers of Anchorage burger joints. It's eclectic, has the expected menu of burgers, fries and the like, but it's just always darn good food. You can't go wrong with a restaurant that is dependable and serves up food that your kids love, your parents love, and that you enjoy. Cute and kitschy - well... More

We ate a lot of fish on our Alaska vacation and this little gem served the best fried halibut. Tasty coleslaw and crispy skin on fries completes the plate. Be sure to try the blueberry shake and don't clog your straw with one of the chunks of blueberry. Service was fast and friendly. Just listen to all the locals surrounding... More

Downtown with easy parking. Doesn't look like much on the outside but the food was excellent especially the fish and chips and the staff was super friendly.

Decent food. Breakfast was good. Returned for their famous halibut, which was great! Not many breakfast restaurants in downtown.

Its been a year or so since I've been here. The halibut sandwich is still delicious! It comes with fresh cut french fries (not frozen). The halibut it fresh daily which is such a treat.

We fell across this cafe while searching for the local delicacy .. Halibut. Owner and staff were very welcoming and cooked us great meals .. The blackened halibut (Cajun spices, grilled) and unsliced halibut on coleslaw. Both were wonderful. Local beers were also great Meals were well priced at $18 and we enjoyed their local stories.

This small, funky café has some great food. Four of us had the haddock sandwiches for lunch and everyone loved them. The service was excellent as well. It's a busy place so get there early if you want a table.

We asked a local where to eat. He told us the White Spot Café in downtown Anchorage. It was the best hamburger we have ever had. Just a small café with great old time music and the staff was fantastic. Not fancy but really good.

Thank Linda B
