I dine at Lavelle's at least once a month- sometimes with a friend and sometimes with my family. The last four times I have visited, the food and service have not been as good as they usually are. When my group of five dined there...More

I guess it's better late than never but we use all customer comments, good or bad, as learning tools for our staff. We can't fix something if we don't know there's a problem. Unfortunately hearing about something that happened in February won't let us address...More

Hubby and I had dinner on our first night In Fairbanks. The Lavelle Summer salad was an up-charge with dinner but well worth it. The Halibut was delish and just the right amount for me but not quite enough to fill a hungry husband. Service...More

Excellent menu and everything we had was excellent. Lived up to the ratings. Service was slow. Wine selection was Superb. Would have been 5+ except for service.

My wife and I went to dinner here. Wasn’t really looking for a huge dinner. The menu has a good variety of dishes, wines and beers. To my wife’s delight they had a local wheat beer, her favorite. I haven’t had good fish and chips...More

This eatery is accessible through a hotel lobby in the heart of downtown Fairbanks (across the street from the shopping co-op building); one block from the Golden Heart plaza. I had the day's special Sirachacha Chicken. It was flavorable, moist and tender, the sauce sweet...More

The service in this restaurant is above expectations, Chrysta is a very good waitress, very accommodating, with good understanding. The restaurant has a great menu, tasteful salads, great food and a fantastic wine list. I think it is unfair to list this place so low...More

Had a great time here, the menu was great. We had the clams, and if you like beef, the prime rib was melt in your mouth good

We will be open on Christmas Eve but not on Christmas Day and we only open at 4:30. We are hosting our 18th annual New Years Eve Party on the 31st and it is always a hugely good time. Hope to see you there. Frank, Owner

Hi Chinablue48, We most definitely serve fresh seafood all summer long. As far as shell fish goes, I would highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab legs. They're scrumptious. We also have fresh Alaskan oysters and clams on... More
