“Great Place for Breakfast, but come prepared to share.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Gwennies is one of those places that everyone who goes to Anchorage should eat at, at least once. But come prepared to share. The portions cover your plate, and can easily feed to people, or just one in my case. The breakfast was excellent, and the reindeer sausage omelet was a real treat.

The atmosphere of the place is all Alaska. If you don't like hunting, than this is not a place to go. There are many native animals mounted on the walls.

Service was good and friendly. Its not a cheap breakfast, but it is good and filling.

“This is not a very good place to eat.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The place is not clean. My potato salad tasted like it had started to ferment. I had to return my fork for a clean one. I tried crab one time and it was over done.

“Novel”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

There's some great items to look at on the outside and inside. The food is good but one of the waitresses really treated me horribly and needs to learn to keep her mouth shut. You take your chances come'n here if you want respect and fun.

“MASSIVE PORTIONS!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

When you first walk into Gwennies, the decor is the first thing you notice. In a beautiful rustic building with an eclectic decorating scheme, it's quite a place to dine and you won't get bored waiting for your food with all the things on the wall.

The portions are massive! And we took home plenty of leftovers. If you're visiting in town, be sure to try the reindeer sausage!

“Good ole Alaska feel”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

We went here the first night into town as its near the airport. I guess I would describe it as very local - the decor is dated, but that's what makes it charming. Price was right and the sandwich we got was huge - enough to share. Waitress was very sweet. Good place to try, just don't go into it expecting 4 star - it's more of a diner.
