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. Join our longtime friends and frequent visitors who have enjoyed many fond memories over the years as our guests and see why we are known locally for the best view and best seafood in Anchorage.

Simon and Seafort's Saloon and Grill has been serving outstanding food and drink for as long as I can remember (I've been dining there since the early eighties). Walking in, you'll be first struck by two sensations. First, the delightful smells of food being prepared in full view of customers. Second, the view. Simon's sits on the bluff right downtown overlooking upper Cook Inlet. In the summer you can see cruise ships and cargo ships and tugboats moving about. Beluga whales are also commonly seen chasing salmon in the inlet. In the winter you'll see the floe ice moving in and out with the tide. The ambiance in amazing. The food, however, is equally unforgettable. In my opinion Simon's has the best seafood in town, hands down. In addition, their prime rib is awesome, the spinach salad is to die for, and the creme' brulee is a signature dessert. If good "spirits" are of interest, Simon's has the most extensive Scotch whisky bar I have ever seen. The bar is separate from the restaurant, but food is served there as well. The bar menu is great. We dine there regularly and have never ever been disappointed. Don't miss it.

I have eaten at Simon and Seafort's at least a dozen times. The chef is very creative and is able to pair interesting combinations of food. The cuisine is upscale and they definitely have enough versatility to please both vegetarians and carnivores alike.

The view is the best part of this restaurant. It overlooks the Knik Arm of Cook Inlet. The food is delicious. The service is good.

We reserve Simons for special occasions. It is always a wonderful experience. While expensive by most standards, the food and service is without blemish. The "Eat, Drink & Earn" card takes some of the sting out of the price. Our last visit was paid for on points!
