Dinner in Anchorage

Hi we will be landing inAnchorage around 545 local after flying all day from Florida. We are staying downtown that night preparing for a land sea tour of Alaska. Any ideas of good restaurants for supper near 5th avenue? We have a party of 8 people.
Thanks for your help!

meant to say -- that is a great option for a group all sitting around the grill table.

There is a Red Robin at the Northway Mall off 6th Avenue.
DW and I will be in Anchorage next Tuesday. Unless we see something better, we'll probably be at the Red Robin.

Red Robin, Tom? Start perusing reviews on Trip Advisor. There are many nice restaurants, vs. fast food places with screaming brats, and bland food.

Admittedly, it was 8 years ago, but we ate at Glacier BrewHouse - had grilled stuff, salmon, good appetizers. At the time, the brewery was on premises and some could be seen from the restaurant.

Red Robin...
There is no Red Robin at Northway Mall. It closed couple years ago. Northway Mall is also not downtown.

Downtown has a fine selection of very good restaurants (all searchable). Among them are:
Sacks Cafe
Orso
Glacier Brewhouse
Club Paris
Crows Nest
Marx Bros.
F Street Station
Simon & Seaforts

My favorite is Sacks. Glacier Brewhouse is liked by many, but it is very loud inside and yo won't be able to hold a conversation. I highly recommend a reservation for any of these in the summer


My favorite is Sacks

Thanks for the tip on Sacks. Reservation made for next Tuesday.

sdpryde is correct about Glacier Brewhouse being loud. Reservations are a necessity, IMO. Ginger is also in the downtown area and very good too.

Enjoy your trip, Tom. If nothing else, take the short drive through the tunnel to Whittier. The scenery is spectacular, and you could choose a short cruise, just under 4 hours. Very calm waters on a catamaran.

I would recommend the Glacier Brewhouse which is right on 5th Avenue. I've been there a number of times and never had a bad meal. The brew their own beer (if you're in to that) which are really good. There's also Orso which is also on 5th. Again good food, Italian.

Orso has a smoked salmon and clam chowder that is simply outstanding! Lots of good seafood entrees too.

I 2nd (or 3rd) Orso. Good food, good service, nice (but not opulent) atmosphere.
