it is casual dining. The menu is easy. The prices are normal. The food is great! The service is very good. It's a popular spot to eat, so there is usually a waiting line, but it moves right along. If you eat there once, you'll go back!! It is very family friendly. This is not a bar, so no alcohol... More

Stayed at hotel locally but tired of buffet breakfasts - tried this as it was one of the few open on a Sunday and was not disappointed. Very busy and had to wait for about 25 minutes for a table but it was worth it. Very varied menu, great prices and service was exceptional despite the place being really busy.... More

It is without a doubt one of the must do's in Anchorage. The breakfast was outstanding. I had blueberry pancakes and they were about 12 inches in diameter and there may have been more blueberries than pan cake - one may be enough for most people. I only finish about half of the two I ordered. The place was packed... More

Walked here after reading reviews and wanting to miss the hotel breakfast. I've never made a reservation for breakfast before but booked the first available on the Monday I visited---11:30. Glad I did because there were lots of folks waiting and they were great honoring my time. Good coffee and a super menu. Generous portions and I only wish we... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how the good the food is. I had a Reuben. Ham, turkey, cheese on a batter bread with a berry sauce. Delicious. I will definitely be going back.

Snow City is a local and tourist favorite. They tend to be very busy on weekends so I recommend calling ahead for a reservation or being flexible enough to wait. I love their eggs benedict. They have great coffee. Even Obama visited there last summer!

Had the opportunity to eat here twice for breakfast. It is popular with the locals and welcoming to tourists. Fills up fast but worth it. We had the eggs benedict and crab omelet once and quiche and breakfast burrito our other visit. The staff is friendly, food good and within easy walking distance to the Captain Crook Hotel.

This is hands down the best breakfast in Anchorage. We stumbled onto this place 4 years ago and it was so delicious it was the first place we ate upon our return. If possible I believe it was even better this time. There are several "Alaskan" items on the menu. We had the tundra scramble with reindeer sausage and it... More

Do not skip breakfast here. The food is locally sourced (as much as can be in Alaska) and as always amazing! The crab and salmon cakes are to die for. The breakfast burrito is gigantic and the scrambles will leave you very satisfied. Make reservations!!! This place is always busy, even on a Tuesday morning. You will wait at least... More

We had lunch at Snow City, but did have to wait about 45minutes for a table. Great atmosphere, endless percolator coffee available whilst waiting. Meals are of good size, and staff very attentive.

Thank peat2013
