The family was happy I chose The White Spot for lunch. They completed their meals before me. Halibut sandwich will fill your belly.

If you are craving a real country cafe in the heart of the city , come to the oldest cafe in Anchorage for homemade biscuits and gravy or chicken fried steak! Sure to provide a hangover cure or fuel for your Alaskan outdoor adventure served with a smile! I love this place!

This is a great lunch spot near downtown. Nice little place with some history and atmosphere, great service as well. The Halibut was great, but recommend the plate over the sandwich as you don't need all the extras to go along with it. Only difficulty was finding parking.

Ate lunch here on a local recommendation. The place is old, dated, mildly unsavory looking. Fact is, that all adds to the charm of it. I ordered the halibut plate. The fish was white, light, fluffy, and breaded to perfection. A golden brown very light breading that didn't take away from the fish. The plate came with fries and coleslaw.... More

Halibut, halibut, halibut.The White Spot is my favorite place for 30 years to get a halibut sandwich. Always fresh and perfectly cooked. Home made fries are great as well. Burgers also good but not the same as halibut. Dine in or take out. Convienent downtown location. Making myself hungry just thinking about it.

This is a second visit after several years. Still good. Fish and Chips, as well as hamburgers, are worth the drive into town for. This is kind of a hole-in-the-wall type cafe, out of the way but very popular with those in the know. It is low key, but service is good, and friendly and the food excellent.

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
