Anchorage

Recommended Posts

Well did Anchorage again...it's just not a good food town.  Drive an hour out though and the scenery is breathtaking.  I'll be back next month and then heading to Fairbanks in May.

I've been to Anchorage several times in the last year and going again next week. Mostly during off season. Agree that it is not a great food town.

 

I like the Moose's Tooth well enough. Particularly good with a mid-sized party. Ate there last summer in daylight at 10:30pm.

 

My favorite meal in Anchorage was probably at Spenard Road House: good food and decent cocktails.

 

If you hit it on a night when there is a decent special, F Street Station in downtown can be good. If not, just get the halibut sandwich and a drink at the bar. (I think this place gets completely overrun in the summer.)

I would love to go, but my work won’t take me there, and it’s hard to sell for a long weekend romantic break. (Not that I’ve tried.)

Oh Alaska is gorgeous. I have upcoming trips to Fairbanks and if I can make the numbers work (so it’s not more expensive for the client) I want to do the Anchorage to Fairbanks train at least once.

 

Thank you to SLBunge, F Street Station wasn’t even on my radar. When will you be there? I will be in Anchorage again beginning the 6th.

Darwin’s Theory has been my bar go-to but there’s no food there.

 

And Sneakeater is right about the ratio.

I'm there from 4/1 - 4/4. Potential uptick to 3-4 days per month if this trip goes well.

There must be ten men for every woman. That sounds pretty romantic.

I would be bringing the “woman” and I do know she’d vote for Hawaii.

F Street Station was enjoyable for what it was. Even got to see a bar fight while eating my quite good halibut sandwich (I went back and had it again).

 

There is nothing to eat in Fairbanks btw. And prices are high the further north you go in Alaska.

 

I was also told that the King Crab in Alaska is from Siberia. Alaskan King Crab is purportedly almost all sold in Asia.
