49th State Brewing Co - Anchorage

Delve into the long tradition of brewing with our award-winning beer. With a welcoming environment and a huge menu, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the 49th State - Anchorage.

“I’ve actually gone to 49th State a few times now. Every food item that I’ve tried has been fantastic...The beer option are especially good because they brew them themselves and don’t reuse ingredients the way some other breweries do. Solstice IPA is my favorite, but I am also a fan of Just the Tip. I love the use of spruce tips. The layout is open and perfect for gathering with friends. 49th State is often my first choice for meeting with a group of friends.”

Our goal is to ignite the Spice of Life ... in you by offering the most delicious food in Alaska. For this, we use the best available ingredients. Our breads and cheeses are prepared in our kitchen by our skilled staff. Our curries are made from scratch. We want to tantalize your taste buds to keep you coming back to Bombay Deluxe.

“I am Indian so I know good Indian food when I see it, smell and taste it. I have grown up with many aunties, who were great chefs. This place makes wonderful food with very generous servings and brings me back to my childhood of all those yummy curries.” (Yelp)

Charlie's Bakery

Charlie's Bakery & Chinese Cuisine offers a unique combination of authentic Chinese food and baked goods. We are an ideal spot to bring the family, with our casual open seating and affordable menu items. We know how hard that can be to find in Alaska. Come by and see why we are Anchorage's choice for dim sum!

“Definitely the best Chinese food in town. I have had several dishes here and have not been disappointed. Some of my favorites are the crispy noodle with chicken the short ribs the eggrolls the ginger chicken pork steamed bun and their chicken wings. The desserts are great too. My favorite is the tiramisu.” (Yelp)

Chinalights Oriental Cuisine

The glorious China Lights buffet with more than 60 different options has been the talk of the town. China Lights Oriental Cuisine is family friendly, with menus for both adults and kids. The staff's sincere customer hospitality has won them acclaim and contributed to their abundance of repeat customers.

“This place rocks!! It is super clean.. The staff was welcoming and on point as a former server I was glad to finally see a serving staff that cleaned when not busy.. Imagine that!! And having an Associates in Culinary Arts I will give them a awesome job for Anchorage Alaska!! There is no way a person can get the quality or quantity of food added w the atmosphere and cleanliness for less than \$20 a person... Please we all know the price of crab per lb ... So a props to them y'all have me and my daughter as a customer from now on!!!” (yelp)

Crush Wine Cellar & Bistro

The wine professionals at Crush love to pair wine with people. With seasonal wine flights, over 40 wines by the glass, a creative bottle reserve list and a shop filled with over 400 labels, Crush truly has wine for everyone!

“I'm seriously in love with this place. Their menu is pretty tiny, as far as food goes, but everything on there is so.damn.good. Life-changing salad? They have one. Maybe two or three, depending on my mood. All their charcuterie is cured in-house, and they do a duck proscuitto that's out of this world. The soups here are consistently stellar, and having a dinner without soup here is doing yourself a disservice. All their specials are always on point, and the staff goes out of their way to be awesome.” (Yelp)

Double Shovel Cider CO.

Double Shovel Cider Company: the first micro-cidery in Alaska. We specialize in crafting delicious, naturally gluten-free hard ciders right here in Anchorage by combining hand-picked Alaska apples, berries, and syrups with Washington apples.

“Forget-Me-Hopped is an amazing balance of hops and cider. This place is great! The staff is very friendly and always willing to help explain and describe the Ciders. I came for a Yelp event and have been back multiple times since and every time I am happy I did. I recommend bringing a friend, trying a flight or two, then ordering a pint of your favorite. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this place. I recommend you check it out for yourself!” - (Yelp)


At Ginger, we specialize in Pacific Rim cuisine and classic Asian specialties. Our meals are hand-crafted from fresh ingredients by a devoted crew of local restaurant veterans. Ginger also offers a hip, new lounge area as well as local microbrewed beer and a select wine and sake list.

“I have long been a fan of Ginger and my past visit only added to my long list of reasons why I love Ginger. Aside from the chic interior, friendly staff and reasonable prices, Ginger also serves up some unexpected combos like their coconut banana lemongrass soup and my most recent favorite, their teriyaki chicken and pork bhan mi sandwich. Serious flavor and it was huge, enough to share and still have a belly full of food.” (Yelp)

Glacier Brewhouse

Alaska's first choice for fresh Alaska seafood, rotisserie grilled meats, wood oven pizzas, handcrafted ales and classic cocktails. Celebrating 20 years! “Where Alaskans meet Alaskans.”

“First of all, this is where the locals go for great food. Make a reservation, highly recommended. Atmosphere is wonderful with a fire in the center of the restaurant. The food came out hot and delicious. My steak was cooked to perfection. Service was very good even on a busy night. I tried the Alaskan Blonde brew and it was awesome.” (Trip Advisor)

Kaladi Brothers

Kaladi Brothers Coffee Company was born in Alaska and we like to say were also raised here. What began as an espresso cart on Anchorage’s 4th Avenue in the spring of 1986, is now Alaska's premier coffee roaster. Over 25 years later the Kaladi roasters in Anchorage are cranking out nearly a million pounds a year of premium, air-roasted coffee.

“I am a coffee and espresso connoisseur... When I travel, I love to hop around independent coffee shops and find the best espresso drinks in town. Kaladi Brothers has made my list of "Must-Gos"! Fresh roasted right here in Anchorage, using organic coffee beans. Their large lattes come with 4 shots of espresso, as they should! Crafted creamy, smooth and strong. Excellent. The cafe is modern and trendy with free wifi... Apparel for sale, fireplace, local artwork. Good place to enjoy your caffeine.” (Yelp)

A Pie Shop

At A Pie Stop, we insist on quality ingredients and use locally grown, seasonal, and fresh fruits as much as possible. You will be amazed at how our pies taste and you will always be treated like family.

“So I was excited to try A Pie Stop,...It’s a bright, cheery space with a few cafe-style tables and a sign on the wall that reads: ‘Stress does not exist in the presence of pie’. I placed an eclectic order, starting with a couple of beef pasties (\$7) and a Mexican pot pie (\$7) -- the day’s special… In addition, I ordered a chocolate cream pie to bring to a friend’s party… Distinctly chocolatey and decadent, it was also restrained in the sugar department. Even the whipped cream was gently sweetened, allowing me to enjoy the texture and the flavor of the filling and the light, flaky crust.”

Romano’s Trattoria

Romano’s carries the same ownership today as when they first opened in 1966. Come experience our romantic, old-school Italian ambiance. Craving homemade Italian cuisine? With our family friendly portion sizes, we promise to fill your appetite. Come see why we are Anchorage’s favorite Italian Restaurant.

“We decided on this place after reading the Yelp reviews... Hostess and waitress were very accommodating and polite. We decided to stay after looking at the prices and I am glad we did! Even with a 4 year old and a 1 year old. You can tell the food was homemade and everything tastes amazing! Would highly recommend this place.”

Sea Galley

Fabulous entrees and desserts, classic decor, smiling service and a full service bar are just a few things that make us one of Anchorage's best restaurants. Sea Galley is perfect for everything from intimate dining to a family affair.

“We had just arrived in town, this place was a short walk from our hotel and the parking lot was packed. Our waitress’ name was Jennifer and she was great. Friendly, prompt and well aware of menu items. Salad bar was awesome (large fresh selection), so was clam chowder and shrimp salad.”

Simon & Seafort's

Simon’s has a beautiful panoramic view overlooking Cook Inlet and the Alaska Range. Enjoy lunch, drinks, dinner, weekend brunch or a romantic occasion in our warm, inviting and spacious dining room or private room.

“We were excited to bring our kids back to the restaurant that holds a special place in our hearts. 12 yrs ago my best friend proposed and I said yes! We were excited to bring our kids to our favorite restaurant and share our memories with them. The food and service was just as we remembered....remarkable! And watching the sunset while we dined was breathtaking, my babies enjoyed their first visit. We're excited to be back in Alaska to make more memories. Thanks to Simon and Seafort for the enjoyable family night out.”

SOUTH Restaurant & Coffeehouse

Happy Hour is Monday through Friday 4-6 p.m. We host monthly chef dinners, tastings and classes in our Back Room. Our Coffeehouse is a great place to hang out and enjoy our house-baked goodies.

“Simply delicious. Serene atmosphere, great service. I have to say my favorite part was the Mediterranean gin and tonic. This is a must go for anyone who loves tasty food and a great cocktail.”

Seven Glaciers Restaurant

Thank you to the Alaskan voters for choosing us as the Best Place to Propose, Best Wedding Venue and Resort. Your journey to Seven Glaciers begins with a scenic aerial tram ride. In this mountain-top perch, you're surrounded by nature. Our chefs carefully craft the Seven Glaciers' menus with an emphasis on locally available produce, seafood and game.

“There’s little more that can be said regarding Seven Glaciers that hasn’t already been. The setting is upscale, the views are spectacular, and the service is nearly always impeccable. My party of 12 were celebrating a successful season, and were well taken care of throughout by Kelly, who is in his own right one of the finest servers I’ve had the pleasure of dining with. Between the group, we covered nearly the entire menu, and everything was delivered both timely and prepared perfectly. From first courses to the last, from bisque and salad to steaks and pounds of crab. we spared no expense and had an exceptional time with friends and family alike. My wife and I dine frequently at Seven Glaciers to commemorate special occasions. I’d recommend the restaurant to anyone seeking to get away from the world below. At 2300ft, Seven Glaciers is the perfect romantic retreat. First class.” (Trip Advisor)

Spenard Roadhouse

Spenard Roadhouse serves contemporary comfort food in a casual, eclectic setting. A neighborhood gathering place, we welcome families and friends to come and enjoy our amazing food, local beers on draft and a flight of small batch bourbon, among other delights!

This place is a favorite of my husband and I's. We absolutely adore the biscuits and gravy, so on point and well done!... and we often can't help but taste the calimari strips! They have crafty beverages and mixed drinks, and have a new bacon of the month appetizer that is always ingenious and crafty as well. Their menu is diverse and has vegetarian / vegan options… We love coming here. They change the menu every so often in a subtle way. We always keep coming back, the service is fresh and cool every time.” (Yelp)

Sweet Caribou

We look forward to delivering locovore lunch bowls, providing quality service, and designing Alaska style macarons for Anchorage for years to come!

“Hands down the best place for macarons. No one else in Anchorage even comes close. The fact that they actually travel to France to train for their macarons, shows their dedication to their craft. We always place our order online ahead of time for easy pick up and to ensure we get the macarons we want as they are so popular they often sell out. If you're in Anchorage, living or visiting, do yourself the favor of stopping by. All their baked goods are legit, but the macarons are hands down our favorite!”

Tequila 61

Tequila 61° is a smart and authentic “Mexican Gastropub” that embodies the warmth of traditional Mexican cooking and the fun and genuine hospitality that defines Anchorage. We also have a superior collection of wines, traditional and hand-crafted spirits, and the best artisanal-crafted beers from local breweries.

“I can't say enough great things about this restaurant. The atmosphere was very trendy and cool and we were seated quickly and well taken care of (6 people) The drink menu was overwhelming (in a good way) only because the flavors were so unique and the waiter steered me away from a drink I probably wouldn't have liked, which was appreciated. Ultimately we all got different drinks, took sips and passed them to the right so we could try them all. Recommend: the smoked scallop experience, any of the 3 desserts are a hit, and the tacos are small but flavorful” (Yelp)

Waffles and Whatnot

After spending a year doing volunteer community service in Anchorage, Derrick and Liron Green decided to venture into making waffles. Since June, they have been perfecting their recipe to bring you an amazing waffle that is free of the top 10 allergens and will still be one of the best you've had.

“Talk about an AMAZING waffle!!! You don't think of waffles being wonderfully savory, or out-of- this-world indulgent, but you really get that here! We tried the Parmesan Chicken waffles and the sweet waffles with all of the fixins' and I thought I was going to die - it was that good!”

Wild Scoops

Wild Scoops is a new microcreamery, bringing Alaska small batches of craft ice cream and frozen treats. Our flavors are fresh, adventurous and wildly delicious, starring local products. We churn ice cream in our Anchorage Test Kitchen year-round, and sell it across town.

"Wild Scoops flavors are both comforting and sophisticated — sure to please your inner-child, and, you know, any actual child you might have lying around." (

We offer you more than just bacon and eggs, hamburgers and fries or meat and potatoes. Walk-in, reservations, private parties welcome. Cater or order it to-go. We look forward to seeing you!

“Great service right from the start! We were seated immediately, and I noticed the decor was modern and the entire place had a good "flow" to it… The server, Shawn, was OUTSTANDING from the beginning until the end. Prompt, polite, funny, attentive - and right on top of anything that needed to be done. Good drinks, nice selection, and quick. Appetizers were proportioned well, light but balanced and they were great… the steaks were perfect, well seasoned - the ribeye with the broccolini and potatoes was spot on, I remember someone having some rabbit ravioli that was tasty, and everybody enjoyed the food. A wonderful time with good people, made great by outstanding food and top notch service.” (Yelp)
