We get a lot of traffic from people wanting to visit. I enjoy reading about all the places to eat or drink. So, I thought I would start a food/drink thread for our great state. If you have some recommendations, please place them here.


Breakfast:
1. Kriner's Diner: Their corned beef hash
2. Gweenies: I enjoy it all.
3. Sno City Cafe: If you have the time


Lunch/Dinner:
1. Thai Kitchen
2. Moose/Bear tooth
3. Hippy salad place by REI
4. Arctic Roadrunner
5. Serranos (their flan...to die for)
6. There is a food truck, and I am not sure of its name. I will have to get it.



Drinks:
1. Moose/Bear tooth
2.

Brewhouse 49? 49 Brewhouse? Something like that, downtown. I enjoyed the heck out of that place.

Great idea, Hj!

Fairbanks-ish, in no particular order:

Turtle Club: known for their prime rib, but a lot of people either forget or don't know that the TC has a bar menu that has prime rib dishes (french dip, tips, etc), shrimp and an awesome salad bar for super cheap

Clear Sky Lodge (Anderson): the rib eye, the rib eye, the rib eye. Go out of your way to go here and get the rib eye

Howling Dog Saloon Cafe: tasty bar food. The BLT and the bacon cheeseburger are house favorites

Lane's Quickie Tacos: exactly what it says. The tacos are so delicious and these guys are really nice and very cool. They remembered my name (which is not easy for most people) and what I ordered after I'd only been there once. I get The Alaskan every Saturday.

Irashai AND Ajimi: really good Japanese food. I always waffle back and forth about which one I like best

Bucko's: best coffee; incredibly annoying baristas. Fortunately it's a coffee hut, so the punishment generally ends quickly

Alaska Coffee Roasting Company: great coffee and pizzas, quiche, other yummy things and desserts that will make your mouth water

Bobby's Downtown: lots of delicious Greek food. Possibly my favorite restaurant in town

Friar Tuck's: truly great sandwiches and things. I think they are way overpriced; others disagree.

The Hungry Robot: best pizza around

A great little deli downtown is Urban Greens. 3rd & G. I try to go there whenever I'm in Anchorage. Yesterday a Thai lady recommended Thai Orchid as the best Thai restaurant in Anchorage. I used to live near the old Thai Orchid and it had great food back then. Apparently the new Lake Otis and Dowling location is owned by the same people.

There's a fish and chips food truck in one of the parking lots on POW that isn't bad.

I always hear that and somehow I never make it there. I will make a point of it.

A few of my favorite Juneau eateries are:

Island Pub - Probably my favorite restaurant in town. Amazing pizza and a fun place to grab a drink after work. Their smoked salmon spread & breadsticks are a super yummy appetizer. They also have a yearly pizza contest, so there are always new things to try. It is located just across the bridge in Douglas.

Sandpiper Cafe - Great little breakfast or lunch spot. It's only open until early afternoon and fills up fast, so prepare to wait. It is walkable from the downtown/cruise ship-area, but it is a bit off of the typical path and tends to be full of locals. LOVE their pancakes.

The Rookery Cafe - In the morning this is a good place to get tasty coffee and homemade baked goods, and then in the afternoon/evening you can get really great food. It's also a pretty small space and can fill up, but totally worth the wait. It's right downtown and super accessible for tourists or locals.

Twisted Fish - This one is a total tourist spot, located right near the cruise ship docks and is only open in the summer. I really, really like a lot of their food though and the atmosphere is pretty fun. This is also a good place to enjoy drinks and appetizers with a view.

Tracy's Crab Shack - They have an open-air stand located right downtown. Lots of good seafood. This tends be a super touristy spot, so I usually reserved trips here for when guests are in town. All of my guests have really enjoyed going here to eat though. I like their bisque and crab cakes.

There are a bunch of other good places to eat too, but I'm sure someone else will chime in with their favorites.
