Located in one of the oldest homes in Anchorage, The Marx Bros. Café specializes in innovative contemporary cuisine featuring fresh Alaskan seafood and only the finest quality meats. Our chef revises the menu each night to reflect unique ingredients and imaginative preparations. Our cuisine is expertly paired with an extensive selection of wines housed in one of Alaska's largest cellars. Welcomed at the door by partner Van Hale, guests are at once immersed in a quaintly elegant atmosphere provided by our original town-site house and tasteful table settings. The evening is guided with unrivaled service by our subtle, accomplished staff. With only 14 tables in our house, we serve an average of 60 guests each night. Reservations are highly recommended.

We were greeted warmly when we arrived & taken directly to our table. Shelly was our server. She was kind, professional m, & efficient. I enjoyed the shaved Brussels salad - tangy & tasty. The butter leaf salad was light & enjoyed also. The steak special was appreciated by my husband with good flavors. I enjoyed the scallops with polenta. The scallops were cooked just right and were delicious. My husband enjoyed the cobbler. Every person we interacted with during our evening was wonderful - friendly & helpful.

Ginger has the best burger in town in my opinion. Great wait staff. Not too busy. I was able to get a table a couple days in advance for family that flew in. Highly recommend it if you’re in the neighborhood.

Alaskan, warm, inviting, innovative, a menu full of surprises, unbelievable wine list, great cocktails, are common phrases used by our guests to describe ORSO. We feature the freshest ingredients available, Alaskan whenever possible- fresh Alaskan seafood, fresh local pasta, and local produce when in season. ORSO’s outstanding service, bold menu, classic cocktails combined with a wine list that has received the “award of excellence” from the Wine Spectator for five years is why ORSO is the “Place to be” for Anchorage dinning.

About the restaurant
You will know the moment you walk in that this is not your typical brew pub. The scent of the alder wood grill and wood fired oven, the energy of the sparking exhibition cooking line and the glow of the brewery delight your senses. The BrewHouse features rotisserie grilled meats, the freshest Alaskan seafood, brick oven pizza and award winning hand crafted ales. The BrewHouse is Anchorage’s downtown landmark restaurant-“Where Alaskans meet Alaskans”.
