Big crowds and hard to get prime time reservations. Good service and nice restaurant decor but quite noisy and just average food. Overall, a bit disappointing.

We've eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the food has always been delicious! Real nice spot for romance, friends, and business lunches! Call ahead for reservations.

Be prepared for at least a 30 minute wait, but once seared, it was pleasant. If you like beer, the beer sampler (your choice of 5 of their homebrewed beers) is the way to go. The seafood chowder was delicious but not served very hot....More

You will know the moment you walk in that this is not your typical brew pub. The scent of the alder wood grill and wood fired oven, the energy of the sparking exhibition cooking line and the glow of the brewery delight your senses. The BrewHouse features rotisserie grilled meats, the freshest Alaskan seafood, wood fired pizza and award winning hand crafted ales. Our friendly, energetic wait staff also offer gluten free and vegetarian options. Join us for brunch on the weekend, and bring the whole family anytime. The BrewHouse is Anchorage’s downtown landmark restaurant-“Where Alaskans meet Alaskans”. We appreciate your feedback, please let us know how we performed. Thank you, we hope to see you soon.
