Fodor's Review

Though it pays homage to the roadhouses that dot Alaska—and the state's history—Spenard Roadhouse is by no means just a place to grab a quick meal while traveling. Settle in; order some wine, a cocktail, a house-made infused vodka, or one of the 30-plus bourbons on hand, and enjoy. The warm and inviting restaurant features art that will delight the eyes as the menu is a treat for the taste buds. Owned by the folks behind superpopular mainstays Snow City Café and Sacks Café, Spenard Roadhouse serves lunch and dinner daily and a weekend breakfast menu you'll dream about the rest of the week. The weekend breakfast "hair o'the dog" cocktails alone are worth getting out of bed for. Try the house-infused habanero Bloody Mary. Lunch and dinner menus offer plates both light and mighty hearty, from a lemon basil quinoa salad to the bacon jam burger. Other options include pizzas, sandwiches, seafood, and small plates. Of course, you'll need to finish the meal off with a s'more or a coconut-cream tartlet. Better yet: go with friends and order a few of each. Service is friendly and accommodating, and there's free Wi-Fi.
