Fodor's Expert Review Moose's Tooth Pub & Pizzeria
Always the top pick when local newspapers rate Anchorage pizzerias, Moose's Tooth is packed all week, despite the ample seating (on the order of 300 guests). The reason for the popularity is obvious: creative pizzas and handcrafted beers from its own brewery. More than a dozen ales, ambers, porters, and stouts are the order of the day, and homemade root beer and cream soda are also available. You can match these brews with a seemingly endless roster of pizzas topped with standards like mushrooms and roasted red peppers or inventive options like jalapeños, cream cheese, shrimp, and capers. Check out the biweekly pizza specials for some pretty exotic topping combinations, such as Southern pork barbecue and Samui shrimp. Those who prefer nonpizza fare can choose from soups, sandwiches, and salads. No delivery, but there is a streamlined pickup counter for those who call ahead. To avoid the cattle call blues, show up 45 minutes before you want to eat, grab a beer at the bar, and chat with locals in the outdoor waiting area.
