  • I like the brunch
    BeckyinAlaska
    Dined on 9/14/2014
    I've been going to the Brewhouse for many years and had yet to try the brunch menu. I made reservations, which was smart, given the popularity of this place and its downtown location. The brunch menu had a nice variety of items and was small enough to ensure the quality. My niece had the crab cake benedict which came with good crab cakes, lots of sauce, potatoes and fresh fruit. I had the skillet, which while tasty, had a few too many red and green peppers in it for my taste. My only criticism would be the use of a chipotle sauce in just about every menu item. While tasty, many people can't handle spicy and it should come on the side. Prices were reasonable. I will be back.

    Glacier has the best calamari I have ever had. The fresh fish is always perfectly cooked and tasty. The local beers bring it all together for a great dining experience. It is usually busy, so get a reservation.

    Went to this restaurant on our trip last week to Anchorage. Since we wanted to eat there on a Saturday, I booked reservations ahead of time. I'm glad I did as they were very busy, but seated us right away. My husband and I enjoyed our food very much, and our waiter even brought me a small sample of their beer cheese soup to see if I would like to order a cup, which I did. We shared a piece of their chocolate, peanut butter pie which was fabulous and would highly recommend. Overall, we were very impressed with all aspects of this restaurant and would recommend to others.

    We had a reservation and were seated right away, service was good and the food was excellent. We sampled wine, beer & the coffee and cannot complain. The ribeye was cooked just right, the chicken has a smoked flavor that is amazing. If you like peanut butter and chocolate get the peanut butter pie! It's worth a visit just for that.

    Had heard from friends and relatives that it was a must eat location. After telling them it was disappointing they said, "yes, it is not always good." If I order a prime rib sandwich I expect recognizable meat...I got chopped roasted overcooked meat...not good. We had a waitress in training who was superb.

    I hadn't been to Brewhouse for about a year (avoiding the business). Usually have great food....but I was disappointed. Had the salmon pasta salad and the salmon looked like scraps you'd feed to your dog. Vegetables did not seem fresh. Was taking out of town guests out for a great meal and was not impressed with the quality.

    We haven't been in about a year due to an extremely terrible visit the last time we were there, but we had out of town guests and thought we would give it another try. Service was poor. Server took plates with food still being eaten away without a single " are you finished with your plate" in which we were not finished. Drinks went without refill, salad swimming in dressing, burger burnt, kids meals poorly put together, and appetizers poorly made.

    I have eaten at GB several times over the past year, and I have noticed a subtle but definite decline in the experience. The attention to little things, like timely greeting of a newly seated table, making sure there is butter in a second basket of bread, watching the temperature and resting time on the steaks...all of those keep adding up to make the experience a good deal less than it was even this time last year. I understand the desire to maximize profits, but the squeezing of too many tables into too little space results in a very loud dining room and much slower service. I have kept going to GB because of the peanut butter pie, but even that isn't good enough to keep me, especially with checks averaging $50+/person.

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    Beer is great with lots to choose from. Seafood is always fresh and cooked properly, although the side dishes that come with the main courses always seem to be an afterthought and not as tasty as the fish. Restaurant can get packed for dinner during Summer months, but can't fault them for being popular.

    We made the reservation because was recommended by Fodors. The atmosphere was dynamic. They brew in-house. I had the stout, which was excellent. They make gourmet nachos, which were far and away the best that I have ever had - no gooey mess here. The halibut was excellent. Service was efficient and friendly. Overall, a great experience.

    Been dining at the GB for just over a year. I've heard some comments lately about the quality declining, but I haven't noticed it to be true. If anything, I experienced two improvements on this visit: 1) The seafood chowder was served warm instead of lukewarm, 2) time spent waiting on a beer to be served was minimal. The special of the day (macadamia crusted halibut) was superb, as was the simply grilled salmon. The noise level remained vigorous until 10PM, but then that's The BrewHouse. A good meal with equally good service.

    Our server was very good, but the kitchen was awful. There were a number of problems, but it appeared the had plenty of kitchen staff, but just no coordination. Some meals were delayed and delivered after others. Some came out cold or under cooked. It took a very long time to get our meals. Overall a major disappointment for what was a very special occasion. I cannot recommend this location at this time.

    This spot was recommended by our tour guide. We had one day to spend in Anchorage before catching a flight back home and wanted something casual. Luckily the restaurant had online reservations available and we booked in advance, otherwise we probably would have missed out. This place is extremely popular and I can see why. The food was outstanding! Calamari and blue cheese/bacon potato chip nachos; delicious king crab legs; macadamia nut crusted halibut; tempura green beans, pizza... all delicious. The kids burger came with parmesan french fries and a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich. Great food and the prices were reasonable. I'm not a beer drinker but those who ordered the local brew agreed it was great too.
