“Just a fun place to eat at”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Just one of those unique places to go eat at. Lot of great historical stuff on the walls, etc. food is great...you will not leave here hungry. Good prices for Alaska. Had breakfast...try the reindeer sausage, it's tasty.

“Average food”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

The trip to Gwennies is an Alaskan tradition mostly. The portions are generous but the food is just so, so, service was good.

“Beware the Hamburgers”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

The place is old and that gives it charm however we all ordered hamburgers only to find out too late that they only make them well done. Some of the worst tasting burgers you will find. Not our style perhaps others like them to taste like cardboard. The service was good and everyone was friendly so that's why we rated it avg and not poor

“Great service and home style cooking”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

The best breakfast we have had during our visit to Anchorage. Service was outstanding and food was delicious. We sampled the reindeer sausage, which was flavorful. The order was big enough to split among our family of four. We also had the crab Benedict, which was also very good. The poached eggs were a little over done for my taste. The chicken fried steak was also delicious.
No kids menu, so our kids just shared from our meals. The meals were huge, so there was plenty to go around.
