Glacier BrewHouse Ratings and Reviews

The restaurant was hopping as usual. Good service though a bit slow if you are in a hurry, we were not. Food was excellent and some unusual offerings (roasted hominy w/fig salad) which we took advantage of and happy that we did so. Parking can be a challenge especially this time of year so plan a few extra minutes to find a spot...it is worth every bit of effort. Being totally satisfied I did not order the world class Bread Pudding which is the best I have found in the US. I have even order it first and if no room, I take it home.

All 3 of us loved our food and drinks. The portions were generous and the food presented attractively. Only slight complaint was noise level was a bit high but looking around it was because everyone looked like they were having a good time,no one was obnoxious or disorderly.

I have eaten here before and had a great experience. This time, unfortunately, was different. Everyone was nice and the service was great as always, but the food wasn't that great. I ordered the cheesesteak and it was completely bland. Everyone in my party of 10 said there food was either over or undercooked and one of the pizzas came to the table visibly burned. The waitress was nice and brought it back but the fact that it was brought out in the first place was disturbing. Very disappointed.

Amazing food, fantastic staff, and simply good. A bit noisy due to all the patrons but it's packed for a reason. In house brews were fantastic, paired perfect with the entrees, and dessert was delicious, especially the peanut butter pie. Went there for the crab legs which were outstanding.

The key was great service. I know we overstayed because we were really having fun but didn't order much. The wait staff was super - attentive but not pushy. Tipped them an extra $20 because the place was packed. Really a class act. And the appetizers were great.

I always start with the best calamari ever. Two of us ordered sandwiches for lunch and the third ordered fish and chips. We all liked our meals and had enough leftover to take home for a snack.
I have been going to GB for many years. The serving staff has always been friendly, efficient, and enthusiastic. When I see visitors standing outside looking at the menu, or discussing how long they might have to wait for a table, I always want to say "It's worth it." ...because it is!
The fish and chips was very overdone. De ...
The fish and chips was very overdone. Dessert, as usual, was excellent. The last time we went to the BrewHouse, we decided the dinner menu was too limited, perhaps because it was tourist season. We thought we'd try lunch next time. Unfortunately, as far as value and good food, we'll be trying some new Anchorage restaurants for a change of pace. We've had many good years at the BrewHouse and are sad to see it going downhill.

The food was mediocre at best. I was expecting a lot from the pizza since they ever ties that the sauce with homemade. It wasn't much better than a store-bought frozen pizza. The rest of the party and my groups food was not what they expected, especially for the price you pay for it. You can get much better seafood for less money at other restaurants.
We looked forward to this meal hearing a ...
We looked forward to this meal hearing about the great food at Glacier Brewhouse. However, the breaded halibut was only fair--an unfortunate way to cook what should be a fresh and delicious fish. Why not offer a grilled or baked option? The breaded halibut was served with mediocre mashed potatoes--very disappointing. And the baked tofu for our vegetarian son was bland and tasteless: surely some fresh and interesting dishes could be offered for vegetarians. The most disappointing aspect of our visit was the atmosphere--The restaurant is huge, with tables packed in closely to one another and the noise level is extreme. We couldn't carry on a conversation without shouting. If you're looking for a relaxed, quiet meal with fresh and simple food this is not the place for you.

The portions were quite large and the restaurant was very amenable to splitting an entree. The appetizers were very big as well, but theyserved our entree before we had eaten half of it. This suggests some issues.

Very disappointed visit. My medium steak was raw. My husbands mid rare steak was mid well. Coffee was cold. Bar drinks took incredibly long time to receive. Glacier Brewhouse is normally are restaurant of choice. After this experience we're concerned it's going down like so many others.

My fiance and I had one night in Anchorage on our way back home and we decided to dine here. The beers and food were all wonderful. I had the Hefeweizen and IPA's. We shared the pretzels with ale cheese dip, crab legs, and ribs. It was fun to try a number of things. Our family loved GBH a few days later on their way back home too.

Our waitress was awesome! She was very friendly and made my 21st birthday very special when she brought out my dessert with a candle in it! Although the fondue cheese on the pretzel appetizer was not very good, all of the other food we ordered was great.

This is a lively, busy brewhouse that is large, but with different seating areas, not cavernous-- casual, fun, and has great food, really excellent. My husband and I each had salmon, his grilled and mine pan sauteed with a light sauce--and they were cooked perfectly. The calamari appetizer was real, beautifully prepared fish, not little crunchy fried "chew toys," as one server put it--really exceptional. The Caesar salad was very nice (I'm pretty picky about these) - and we enjoyed a bottle of Oregon pinot. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly. It may be casual inside, but the standards are high on the food and the servers do an excellent job.

Usually we enjoy our date nights at Glacier Brew, but this time we were less impressed. The white wine was served in a dirty glass at room temperature. The salmon dish was overcooked and under seasoned. The potatoes had a burnt taste to them and the salad was wilted. The service was good. Our waitress was very attentive and returned our salmon dish. Overall, I think we will just come back for brew and appetizers and not dinner.

We went for the Halibut and were not disappointed. We had the Herb Crusted Alaskan Halibut and the Fish and Chips with Halibut. Both were delicious! The calamari was also great as an appetizer. We loved the extra kick with the jalapeno chips and the aioli.

I was told about this by a friend. Ate lunch with several colleagues and loved the food. Made reservations and brought my husband back for dinner several days later. He is a seafood lover and said the Alaskan King Crab legs were wonderful.
