Our classic American grill has been artfully serving quality USDA prime-aged steak, fresh and innovative seafood since 1978. Chef James Sheppard has worked at Simon & Seafort's for 16 years and is an expert at preparing Alaska seafood. Crab stuffed Alaska halibut, Asiago crusted Halibut Cheeks, Wild Alaska salmon and rock salt roasted prime rib. Take advantage of our two hours of validated parking in the Captain Cook garage and enjoy a daily lunch, dinner or perhaps a special business or romantic occasion in our inviting and spacious dining room.

“Good Place To Go To”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Every year when we come to Anchorage we have dinner here
Reservations are advised
It is somewhat pricey but the food is consistently good.
We have eaten in both the restaurant and the bar area when seating in the main room was not ready and we were too hungry to wait.
We prefer the restaurant simply because it is less noisy and less crowded
The seats along the windows have very nice views of the inlet and you can enjoy a great sunset viewing if the weather is right

“Quality food, but on the pricey side in the restaurant but the bar area has f&d specials.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We came here on a holiday of Alaska, because my name is Simon! The food was very good quality, and well presented. It is an upper market restaurant with higher prices, but still reasonably priced for the quality/quantity. They have a bar area as well which we returned to a few days later that had a lively, busy atmosphere (they have food and drink specials in the bar which were better priced!)

“Got harassed for drugs in the bathroom.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

My freinds and I had a nice time, the food was good (not fantastic but good). Service was very slow to begin with but other than that it was fine. Then I went to the ladies toilets and got asked for drugs, well that sort of thing is very strange but I guess it happens. Anyway, I told the staff at the front but they did not seam to care - they didn't even say anything to me about it. I think that is poor. They should have delt with the situation, there were lots of us ladies who were yelled at by this woman and made to feel very uncomfortable.
This does not seam to be a classy place anymore.

NewMex47029,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and bring this issue to my attention. I apologize for the experience. This is not indicative of Simon's and is definitely a unique and isolated event.

Please email me at rkilby@r-u-i.com so that I may talk to you more and make it right.

Best,

Robert Kilby - GM

“Great food and view of bay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We were with a tour group and very pleased that this restaurant was on our itinerary for lunch. The food was delicious and the service was attentive. If possible get a table near the windows. The view is beautiful.

“Great food and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We were visiting Anchorage on business and this restaurant was recommended to us by local people. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent and the views were amazing. They offered a 3-course meal special for $29.95 that included soup or salad, 5 entries to choose from (we both had salmon) and a dessert. The meal was very good with good size portions. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely eat there again!
