Downtown Anchorage's best place for dinner is this upscale brewpub. Love the copper brewing vats almost as much as the daily salmon dinner specials. Incredibly fresh seafood, and the house-made potato chips with melted blue cheese are awesome if you've been working up an appetite in the great outdoors. Service is friendly, and if you don't make reservations, you can just wait to snag a table in the bar area. We ate here twice during our most recent trip to Alaska, and our relatives who are AK locals rate it as their favorite place to eat downtown. Oh, the beer's tasty, too!

Excellent choice for casual food in downtown Anchorage. This is a microbrewery on the premises, with a large dining room, and an open kitchen that features a large rotisserie with wood fired planks with heat you can feel. The smoke from this place billows out and diffuses this lovely wood plank smell for blocks, enticing you in. They print a new menu every week.
The August 2 - 8 menu included these representative highlights: Starters: Calamari strips with garlic and black pepper served with jalapeno aioli $10.50. Soups: Alaskan seafood corn chowder with fennel, peppers, bacon, and topped with cream and dry sherry $4.95 cup; $6.50 bowl. Sandwich: Chicken Thai Chile sandwich with pineapple glaze, beefsteak tomatoes, cucumber, mixed greens and Thai chile Aoili on housemade focaccia (served with parmesan/garlic sprinkled french fries) $9.50. Seafood: Alderwood grilled Salmon in cilantro shallot marinade on seared crab and rice cake, with corn relish and hollandaise sauce $17.95. Pizza: Mediterranean with sundried tomato pesto, garlic, artichoke hearts, bean sprouts, bermuda onion and cilantro. $10.95. The micro brews are also very good and enjoyable, e.g. Blonde, Amber, IPA, Heferweizen and Oatmeal Stout, $2,95 half pint, $4.50 pint. They also have stronger brews, like the Beam Black Rye Bock, which is a black beer with a chocolate/spicyness, aged in Jim Beam bourbon barrels and an alchohol volume of about 9%. The Imperial Blonde is malty and creamy, and is the same beer as in Talkeetna labelled Ice Axe Ale. These 2 speciality high alcohol beers are $3.25 half and $4.95 full.
The ambiance and decor is very inviting and comfortable, with open industrial ceiling and wood plank accents. The sandwiches are a little too wet with aioli, making them sloppy to eat. The fries are tasty. The flavors are great, and the service is good.. Wolfgang Puck couldn't do much better here.

The Glacier Brewhouse was a real treat. I was worried it might be the usual greasy pub food, but it was anything but that! The food was very well priced and great quality. The beers on tap are awesome. I'd highly recommend this for a quick bite or even a nice night out.

My go-to place whenever I'm in anchorage! I love their calamari - it's always done to perfection (not rubber)! All their appetizers are awesome, as are their entrees. I have never been disappointed with any meal. Their peanut-butter pie is awesome, but I generally have to share since I'm usually stuffed after eating the main meal.

My sister had gone shopping and I was hungry. Funny how things work out that way. I just stumbled into this one....looked like a happening place. It was crowded and had to wait a while but that was understandable. It was really nice, with a fire place and a view of a big beer brewer in the back. I do agree with everyone - the beer was amazingly good. I am still learning the finer points of beer drinking but there was nothing to ascertain...it just was all good. The food was great also......but yeah, back to the beer. It was really good. The place was really crowded and I couldn't help but stare at the sun light.....too much. The local brew helped with that. Everything went well with the beer. Especially the desert. I would give them 5 but I had to wait and the sun made me irritated - truly one of the gawds blessings to wear sunglasses indoors.
