Description: You will know the moment you walk in that this is not your typical brew pub. The scent of the alder wood grill and wood fired oven, the energy of the sparking exhibition cooking line and the glow of the brewery delight your senses. The BrewHouse features rotisserie grilled meats, the freshest Alaskan seafood, wood fired pizza and award winning hand crafted ales. Our friendly, energetic wait staff also offer gluten free and vegetarian options. Join us for brunch on the weekend, and bring the whole family anytime. The BrewHouse is Anchorage’s downtown landmark restaurant-“Where Alaskans meet Alaskans”. We appreciate your feedback, please let us know how we performed. Thank you, we hope to see you soon.

“Why so Expensive?”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

To us this place is rated overly highly and is way too expensive for what it is. It is attached to a brewery and has a selection of local brews which has a certain appeal; however, nothing else is significant and the service was mediocre. It was just an average roadhouse type of restaurant for us out-of-towners at fine dining prices.

“Nice and cozy”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

Arrived at 7pm without a reservation and had to wait almost an hour for a table. But that was exactly what I was told the wait would be. Had a seafood chowder and the catch of the day. The chowder was great, the main course very good but not exceptional. House brewed beer is great.

“Good Foor”
Reviewed August 29, 2014

We ate here twice while in Anchorage. The first day for lunch we had the Halibut. It was great. Nice salad came with the meal. Tried the Blondie beer which we enjoyed even though we normally prefer wine. The second time we went for dinner and enjoyed the fish and chips (which was Halibut--only in Alaska). The slaw was also good. Service is good. In August you need a reservation for dinner. If you want bread for lunch--you need to ask for it. Prices pretty much in line with other restaurants in Alaska which is more than they are in SC.

“Excellent food and great desert”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Very busy restaurant. This time knew to make a reservation on-line. Our party of 4 was seated promptly and greeted right away by our server. She got our berverages very promptly and took our orders. I had the salmon which came with 2 sides and splt a small salad with spouse. She had the flank steak. The other couple enjoyed the salad with salmon on it. My ife and I had our favorite desert: the chocolate peanut butter pie. It's fantastic.
