There is absolutely nothing that anyone can fault with the views of Turnagain Sound. It is incredible. Our waitress got both our orders wrong on just a simple salad. The quality of the food was so-so. The beers were good. The service was a bit disjointed and I agreed with another customer who pointed out that the many different beer signs were confusing as though were not the beers that they featured. A bit overpriced like much of Anchorage.

Europhile, thx for your visit. Service is a constant focus and from many in-house comment cards we know we are vastly improved; your review is impetus to continued action. We do love the fact that our staff is friendly and shows true hospitality, and like you, we love our ales and the view:)

Ended up eating here twice, once with some friends and once just the two of us, both times for lunch so no wait for an outdoor seat. Ambience: very pleasant. On first visit with friends, she had excellent salmon cakes, billed as an appetizer but three good-sized patties. Others at the table had halibut fish tacos and fish & chips, everyone said they were good too. On the second visit, he had reindeer burger (very good) she had fish & chips (just okay). Service on the slow side - maybe everyone was soaking up the rays and not attending to the customers. Would recommend for a casual lunch, especially on a sunny day.

Chris-
Thx for the repeat business, with all of the excellent Anchorage restaurants this is a real compliment! The salmon cakes are so good -and unique: most places do crab. The addition of Patrick Hoogerhyde and Jose Diaz to our team is definitely reaping benefits. Thank-you again.

Lunch today on the outside deck was nothing short of fabulous. Even the locals loved it!!! We ordered the caribou sausage and bacon pizza (Alaskan Style) and the Halibut Fish and Chips. Also ordered a Portage Beer which is their darkest beer. Mix that with a sunny day and it just doesn't get any better!!! A whole lot of food and we'll have the rest of the pizza for dinner tonight. The view is the best and really makes for a beautiful lunch setting. John V. worked our table and he did all the right stuff - made sure we had great food and drink. It's all about the view and the food and the beer - you have try the Snow Goose.

The wait was about an hour to sit on the deck on a Friday night, so my husband sat inside upstairs. It was still a nice view out the windows, but would have been much better if outdoors. This has a brewery on site. I don't really like fish or seafood, so ate a burger. It was just ok - kind of dry. My husband had halibut and loved it. Good beers too.
