    I made reservations several weeks before, and we were seated right away! We ordered drinks and an appetizer and weren't pushed to order. When we did order, I read the menu wrong and thought that my dinner came with something different than it did. I asked, and instead of showing me the menu, I was charged an extra side price for some extra veggies that I thought were coming with the dinner. Our waiter didn't come back til we were almost done eating, and other waitresses had come to clear our table. When he returned, I asked about my blue rare steak, and whether that was cooks choice for medium rare. He apologized and said it was pretty rare. I did get a free dessert without asking. We will be trying other downtown eateries for future dates.

    The food was great- our waiter was not very was lackluster - didn't come by to check on us, ask if we wanted another glass of wine or to remove the appetizer plates. Fortunately we have been there many times and knew what we wanted - had we been newbies we might have been disappointed. Awesome food and left sataisfied with our food choices!

    My recent visit to Glacier Brewhouse was on a busy night with lots of events occurring downtown. We were greeted and seated on time. Our wait staff was prompt, pleasant and knowledgeable. Our drinks and food were great. The salads are fresh and delicious and the Fettuccine Jambalaya continues to be a favorite. For a lively restaurant with a great bar, Glacier Brewhouse can't be beat.

    Your food is good, anytime we go anywhere this past couple months we always feel ourselves comparing to your dishes. The huge downfall is the noise level, your atmosphere is starting to sound like a bar, keeps me from dining there in the evening. Your staff needs help with refills and checking up on you. Three different visit I have learned if I just hold up my glass in the air I will get a refill, they don't check on you until the order is up. This is why i keep wandering to different places, because I don't have to ask for refills.

    We had a great experience at the Brewhouse. We made a reservation a couple days prior and found street parking. The atmosphere is great and perfect if you like a place with energy. I can't speak for every dish as I have not tried them all but I have never had a plate that I regretted here. I will speak high for the Seared Tuna, Breaded Halibut, and the Roasted Chicken…a lll amazing! The service was excellent. Our waitress told us she was newer and would be shadowed by another wait staff member, but we never noticed any issue and actually thought she was great. The prices were reasonable and with several options to cover the different price level and pallet. This place is clearly well managed. Thank you!

    Immediately upon walking into the Glacier BrewHouse you are greeted warmly by the hostess. The decor is rustic chic with open rafters and a large fireplace in the center of the room. I highly recommend the seafood chowder and pear & goat cheese salad. The soup is creamy and rich in flavor and the salad with crisp pears, candied nuts, dried figs and a pear vinaigrette is delicious. The steaks and crab cakes were all very good as well. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing. Will definitely visit again when in Anchorage.

    We are never disappointed here. The food and beer are good. We had a really good waiter who was friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. The only thing that could be better is a change in the noise level, but I have yet to find a place in Anchorage that is busy and quiet at the same time. People who aren't used to Alaska prices might be shocked, but now I'm used to it (comparable pricing with better quality than some of the competition).

    One of my favorite restaurants in Anchorage! I make it a point to have dinner here every time I'm in town. Absolutely love the food, they are consistently top notch. They are also willing to go off menu and prepare something for you as long as they have the ingredients. They do this for me all of the time when I want halibut prepared like one of their salmon dishes. The one down side is it can be very busy, so be sure to make a reservation otherwise the wait can be quite lengthy.

    Was recommended by a friend to try out glacier brew house for a nice fine dinning place. Reserved space for a party of four for my girlfriendson birthday dinner, but was surprisingly plenty of space for a small party such as mine. The host were friendly the waitress were great and the food was even better. A must go in Anchorage!

    We had 3 left handed people and were not able to switch to round table but were given a longer booth. Service was okay and seemed distracted but did go to Orso to get tiramisu for our table. Food was as we ordered it and prepared well. Had gluten free menu as requested in reservation and bday dessert had candle in it. Had to flag someone down to get refill on soda. Bread to the table came right before the appetizer. Felt like we were yelling to hear each other and couldn't hear the far side of booth with the loud "ambiance". Overall, glad we had a reservation, food great, service good, as expected.

    The standards of quality food and service are not compromised. I have been coming here for +10 years and still find this as one of my most favorite restaurants in Anchorage. The food is abundant and of high quality. All preparations were done to perfection. Use of local fresh products adds to the variety and enjoyment of each meal. Their locally produced beer is a great addition to any meal. Reservations are a must if you have more than 2 people.

    They pack people in there like cattle so the person behind you is literally less than a foot away. The menu is... choppy. I wish they had more options for steaks/pastas/seafood dishes rather than adding in the oddities of pizza and other things. I think the menu could be fine tuned. I ordered the ribeye with some sort of glaze. There was literally a drizzle of the glaze on the asparagus. The char flavor overwhelmed everything on the plate. Our server was super chipper but we had to ask for everything we wanted (bread, wine, water, etc). We ordered an app as well as salads and our app came after our salad. That is no the order food should come out. I hadn't finished my salad before my entrée came. I just don't see a huge need to go back.

    We have dined periodically at the GBH since it opened. While we have always enjoyed the food, this time it was just OK, and the prices have really gone up. My husband's pasta dish was a disappointment; the other entrees were average but not memorable. Their bread was not up to the usual standards. We ordered their signature dessert, bread pudding. It should have been heated through but was still cool in the center. The service was excellent despite being a busy Saturday night before a major concert.

    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.
