We decided to go to the Marx Brothers Cafe as we read a lot of good reviews on tripadvisor, however we were thoroughly disappointed. Perhaps our expectations were too high based on the reviews - the speciality was a Caesar salad which the waiter made...More

Went for the Italian paired wine dinner. Not to be disappointed, the food and wine pairs where excellent. Great to have the wine wholesaler there that gave interesting stories, and descriptions for each wine.

The Bros isn't what it used to be. Had dinner with friends and found the menu and dishes more or less unchanged since the last visit. The menu is uninspired and the food was good, but very far from awe inspiring. A little mediocre in...More

And also the priciest. But you pays your money and takes your choice. The menu can be a bit of a flavour assault course, three types of roe atop of the seafood terrine (three layers) made palate differentiation a challenge. The restaurant really scores on...More

Located in one of the oldest homes in Anchorage, The Marx Bros. Cafe specializes in innovative contemporary cuisine featuring fresh Alaskan seafood and only the finest quality meats. Our chef revises the menu each night to reflect unique ingredients and imaginative preparations. Our cuisine is expertly paired with an extensive selection of wines housed in one of Alaska's largest cellars.

Welcomed at the door by partner Van Hale, guests are at once immersed in a quaintly elegant atmosphere provided by our original town-site house and tasteful table settings. The evening is guided with unrivaled service by our subtle, accomplished staff.

With only 14 tables in our house, we serve an average of 60 guests each night. Reservations are highly recommended. Please contact the restaurant directly if you are unable to get the time or party size requested online.
