Did not have steak available, and slow, uninterested staff. No restaurant should run out of product with proper planning. Because of this, I will not be going back. Oh, and $12 for a small glass of house wine. No thanks.

We came here because the place we originally went to was closed, but we enjoyed the food and the friendly and attentive service. There is a lot of creativity in what the restaurant has to offer and we had dessert as well and also free...wifi. There were a lot of choices and the restaurant was very gracious about substituting to avoid eating pork, which was much appreciated.More

Excellent food and service! Really appreciated their Covid precautions. We had burgers with bacon jam, which was new to us. Loved it!

The tater tots with the paprika sauce are just amazing and worth going for. The carnitas tacos were ok, but tasted much more like pulled pork than carnitas.

We had to wait a good amount of time for two of us to get a table around 11am. But it was worth the wait! The food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely recommend going for brunch (the French toast, breakfast...tacos, and tater tots were great!).More

We have not been here in a very long time. But, this past Saturday we did a date lunch. Even with the extra care to be safe, we were seated in less than 5 minutes. Our waitress was very friendly and offered suggestions upon our...request. My wife ordered the salmon and I ordered the halibut and chips. We also ordered the pizza with the reindeer sausage. All of the food was outstanding. The pizza for taste and quality reveled Moose's Tooth except can't pick size. We really enjoyed our meal and will visit more often. My only suggestion is that in a community that has such a large military presences, that there should be a military discount. I visit places more often with said discount like Texas Roadhouse.More

I had a great dinner at the Spaniard Roadhouse. Loved the staff and atmosphere. Simple, efficient, good. Had a soup and some glazed carrots. All perfect. My partner had a delicious salmon. It was a really good moment and I will come back fore sure...when in Anchorage.More

Sometimes the stars align and everyone at your table enjoys truly exceptional food. While the Spenard Roadhouse is not high-brow gourmet dining, it is comfort food par excellence. Let me tell you about it. This evening I had Halibut and Chips. The halibut’s beer batter...breading was perfect. Crispy and neither too thick or too thin. The juicy halibut exploded with flavor in my mouth. Not as sexy, but more delicious then any kiss. I am a french fry snob. But even I was impressed with these perfectly seasoned delicious hand-cut fries. My wife had the Bacon Jam Burger. Wow! Fresh ground beef, topped with thin slices of grilled apple, arugula and house mayo. The handmade sweet potato tots was the most incredible sweet potato dish I may have ever tasted. Each time I tasted one I said, “What is that?!” I would love to know how they made them. They’re indescribable. Our grandson ordered a pepperoni pizza. Ho-hum, right? ...Not so fast. When the server brought it to the table, my heart skipped a beat. I thought, “I ordered the wrong thing. ...Maybe he can’t he can’t eat it all.” He couldn’t and I could. At this point, even though we were stuffed, we had to sample a dessert. We chose a Banana Cream Pie. But it was actually a salted caramel, banana brûlée, mountain of goodness. Yes, we will be back soon. Maybe tomorrow!More
