“Food Galore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

We are traveling with Fantasy RV, from Idaho through Alaska and back (although we are form NY). We stayed in Valdez for three days and on our last night I suggested we all go to Mike's since they had a private room. We went "dutch treat" so you can imagine how time consuming that was for them, but our waitress kept her smile and they produced a host of delicious food from pizza, to lobster ravioli to seafood specials! Thank you Mike's Palace!

“Best Pizza In Alaska”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We have had several pizzas while in Alaska this summer but this was the best. Pizza was delicious. Crust was perfect and quality ingredients.

“An Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

The food was adequate in that while not above average it was quite nice at least for our first meal. There was one server who was outstanding with great attention to customer service and detail - I wish we knew her name. We ate there more than once having been told it was the best in town. Our first meal of crab was decent but either the crab was frozen or slightly overcooked, still it was passable and the ambience that evening and the excellent server made the whole evening worthwhile. We unfortunately had very bad experiences with the other meals we tried there with poor service and food reaching us only slightly warm. The rest of the staff seemed much more interested in catching up with the locals and not that interested in the customers. We would recommend supper here once (on the off chance you would be served by that amazing server) but I am afraid we cannot recommend beyond that, nor can we endorse their food preparation, presentation or service overall.

“Large menu and efficient service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

This is one of the better places to dine in Valdez. It is always busy so sometimes a wait to be seated is necessary. The staff whilst not friendly in a matey way were definitely very efficient and polite considering how many tables they were dealing with. The food is very Alaskan and that is large portions and unimaginative so live with it. In terms of pricing Alaska is expensive so this was average in comparison. Good views of the harbour.
