“Great food-funky atmosphere :-)”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

First of all, Talkeetna is a small town. I mean really small-like 2 blocks long. We found the West Rib Pub and decided to give it a try. We ate inside-they also have a patio. It's one of those places where things have been added on a little at a time. The room we were in had a pool table which occupied a lot of space. The food was really good and so was the service. They had a special for the day but we got the fish and chips instead. And it was very good. I thought the price was pretty good, too. They had a lot of different kinds of beer but I stuck to a soda. I would eat there again.

“Ate here twice”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

I think it was the Ice Axe beer that made us eat here twice. My food was either stale or boring. But husband loved the beer. Perhaps it was my choices (seafood soup, then halibut tacos) since others in our party enjoyed their crab legs and salmon.

“A don't miss on your Alaska Trip”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Put yourself into the total Alaska frame of mind with West Ribs Caribou berger, parmesian garlic fries and top it off with an Ice Axe Ale handcrafted especially for West Rib by the Glacier Brewing. Rustic but fun, great staff not priced to rip off the tourists. This is just one of the highlights of the menu, but one you shouldn't miss.

“Tanner crab!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We were glad we followed the waiters recommendation to get the tanner crab and homer split, got to try fresh halibut and fresh silver salmon, giant crab legs for 24.95 can't beat anywhere! Beer was cold and delicious, we loved it. Service was fit for a king! 5 stars! Next time I'm there I'll get the seafood combination platter, and dessert afterwards.

“Great caribou burgers”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Burgers were fantastic and tasty. Nice little bar area to sit in and have food, or the restaurant attached is fun and interesting.
