You won't find a better breakfast in town. Portions are huge. My daughter and I always share one. The sourdough pancakes are the best in Alaska. The omelettes are delicious. Atmosphere is true Alaskan. A most see in Anchorage.

This was a fun stop to eat dinner, excellent friendly service, old building atmosphere complete with stuffed bear, and food was good. We had a nice walk here from the Microtel.

We went here before our flight back to the states. The portions were huge and everyone seemed to enjoy their food. I got a "Brit" burger which is a bacon cheeseburger. It was delicious and I did enjoy it the rest of the day which...More

We went here based on the reviews and it was a bit less than we expected. Yes, cute atmosphere with the old-time Alaska feel. Yes, friendly and usually prompt service. But, the food was lacking and seemed not fully cooked-to-order. Some, like the waffles, tasted...More

We have been to Gwennie's many times when visiting AK. Sadly, the last two times we've done dinner there, I've noted less quality int he food. I used to love the Smoked Salmon, but since it was really dry the last time, I ordered Fried...More
