Not only was the food horrible, the service also sunk. This place was one of the worst places we have ever eaten in and we highly recommend not going there. Our hamburgers were tasteless, service was so bad we truly thought about leaving before we finished our food because it tasted so bad. Do yourself a big favor, don't go and waste your money eating at "The Dinner" in Fairbanks, Alaska. You can't say we did not warn you.

Some of the best seafood chowder we ever had. Friendly staff with excellent service. Burgers & fries for another trip, which was also excellent.

Because I had not eaten for about 18 hours, I was ready for anything, or so I thought. Wish I had stayed home and had saltines instead. The beef and vegetable soup would have given Campbell's a world class standing. The lettuce was the last shreds into Alaska I think from last year. Better find the grocery store and just eat cold food.

On the recommendation of locals, we walked across the Chena River from downtown Fairbanks on the Illinois Street bridge and found the funky and simply-named "Diner" in an industrial area.

The walls are covered with numbered photographs of various scenes and events from Fairbanks history dating back to its founding. Each table has a book of descriptions for all the photos. You could spend hours examining the literally hundreds of photos but your coffee would get cold.

The breakfasts are tasty, hearty and well-prepared and the service is excellent. This is the kind of place where the waitress calls you "honey" and knows almost everyone by name.

Good diner food. We had a nice breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes and French toast and shared a side of reindeer sausage (why not? You’re in Alaska—reindeer is domesticated caribou; it’s lean and tangy). It’s a short walk across the bridge from the downtown hotels.
