The Pubhouse Ratings and Reviews

I placed my reservation 4 days ahead, clearly stating that I was Vegan. Unfortunately, when I arrived I was told by the server that the chef was "going through the refrigerator trying to come up with something for me as there was nothing on the menu that I could eat." What came out was the Meze plate. I was VERY disappointed. There was clearly more than enough time to come up with a good option. Vegetables and rice? Vegetables and pasta?
I frequently dine at high end restaurants in Anchorage and when the chefs are told in advance they come up with amazing vegan options, often coming out to say they "enjoyed the chance to think outside of the box."
I will say that I did enjoy my grilled salad (minus the cheese) and all of my companions enjoyed their meals a great deal. One of the biggest disappointments is that we live two blocks away from IT and were looking forward to adding it to one of our regular dining establishments. Sadly this doesn't seem likely.

Excellent and efficient service, great food. I had the Braised Short Ribs which was very tender and tasty. My husband had the Fish and Chips, 3 large perfectly cooked pieces of crispy true cod. It's out of the way and quiet in a neighborhood setting. The Key Lime Pie came with a chocolate crust that was unexpected but tasty.

I dined in Pubhouse with couple of my friends and we all had outstanding experience. I would never guess that a hotel restaurant could have such a good food. Service was very friendly, attentive and knew their menu very well. Their mussels with chorizo were delicious!

We visited the Pubhouse with my husband and enjoyed a great dinner. Fresh food from local products, attentive service, great value for money. We recommend the hotel restaurant for a date, special occasion or business lunch.

We had a great time. The staff was amazing, very attentive and nice. We ordered butcher special and the steak was well prepared. Just the way we like it. We will definitely be back and try more stuff on a menu.

Dark and dated. Servers dressed in jeans and tee shirts. Steak was tough and full of fat, shrimp was mushy and these were the two specials. Server talked my wife out of shrimp special. Wish she had convinced me as well. They were out of crab poppers and all desserts. Would not go back here!!

The food was absolutely fabulous and the wait and host staff were very friendly and attentive. We went at a slow time to avoid a long wait and although the restaurant wasn't very busy, the wait for drinks and meal were rather long. We will definitely be back!

This restaurant tries but just can't figure out what it wants to be. The food is mediocre at best and horribly overpriced. Our server had no knowledge about the beers they served nor how the food was prepared. After the less then impressive meal, our incredibly disappointing experience was topped off by the server automatically adding a 20% tip to the bill. This was unbelievable as we were a table of two (the menu stated that 20% would be added for parties of five or more) and the service she provided wasn't even worth 10%. I will NOT be going back.
Unexpectedly awesome place
We went for Mother's Day dinner and were absolutely surprised by this place: absolutely delicious food, extensive wine list and exceptional service. It was nice and quite there so we were able to carry on with a nice conversation. Dishes are interesting, wonderfully prepared, fresh and delicious. We greatly enjoyed it. Definitely recommend.
Not what we expected
It took one hour to get two entrees out of three to be served, and my wife's order (chicken dish) showed up 10 minutes after everyone else's and it was over salted! Waiter never came back to ask how our food was and we never got even an offer (which we wouldn't have taken but would have been a nice gesture and acknowledgement of bad service) of any sort of compensation ( such as coffee or dessert) $120 later. Will not go back.
The PubHouse was a pleasant surprise. We like to try new places before we attend a show and found this hidden gem. Dinner was outstanding and tasty. It is so nice to have food delivered piping hot to the table. The pork chops melted in your mouth and the grilled romaine salad was a treat. The burger with two patties was filling and had some heat in the sauce. All in all a very enjoyable evening. Music was a nice background to dinner conversation without overpowering. The only suggestion would be to turn the lights up a bit; it was hard to see the menu. Also enjoyed the chef coming out to check on our meal; something easily done in a small place.
The food was phenomenal, service was just okay. The waiter never did bring my bar drink nor did he refill my boyfriend's soda, meanwhile he absolutely DOTED on the tables beside us and behind us. We had the duck confit poutine fries as an appetizer (outstanding). I had the mushroom ravioli (very good, but small portion for the price) and my boyfriend has the meatloaf (he loved it but said the greens were very bitter). We would have ordered dessert, but couldn't get the waiters attention and by the time he came by, we had to pay and leave to make it to our show.
I will definitely go back and hopefully the service will be better.
Our Return to the Pubhouse Was A Lot of Fun
Haven't been to the Pubhouse (or by its former name) in 'way too long a time. Menu was excellent, and the resulting food was likewise excellent. Evan did a great job explaining the menu and serving us; presentation was quite nice; the chef even came out to see how we were doing. The only drawback in our minds was that oreo crust and key lime pie just to do not go together that well; we did eat it all - don't worry. The folks in the bar seemed to be having a wonderful time, too, but they were of absolutely no bother to us.
"My Valentine's Day dinner"
The service was awesome, the bar rocks, but the food is horrible! It's beyond anything I would or could recommend to anyone I care about..
We shared the chef Valentine's dinner. The prices were very high, the taste was very bland and poor, and the wine pairing was non professional 👎
Sadly, the chef knew that were were dis-satisfied in his 3 corse meal, but he choose not to come out and talk with us.
Now reflecting, and reviewing other postings, it's obvious that we are not alone!!
Sorry ... OPENTABLE, Please stop promoting this restaurant to your good clientele .. Thumbs down on this one ..
I Hate the thought that we wasted our Valentine's Day dinner here and spent so much money on the dinner. All we really just wanted was to try something different.
Next time, we will go with our gut, and pick from our wonderful past experiences with you all ..
Menu was write for a suit n tie meal. It didnt describe each item very well. The food that we did order was tasty. Environment was a typical hotel bar/restaurant. Kind of dingy. The waiter needed some work on his service skills. Once we ordered, the menu's sat on our table the whole time. He also reached over my meal to fill my glass while i was eating. It was worth trying once
Excellent service paired with super delicious food
My fiance and I went to the IT Pubhouse to celebrate our engagiversary and we had a lovely time. Our server Bud was terrific at suggesting specific wine to go perfectly with our entrees and although we could see how many tables he had, he still made us feel like we were his only table. Bud was professional, personable and positive with extensive knowledge on the entree featured items. The food and the service were superb; the atmosphere was just perfect. GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE!
Hip place for Ak
The restaurant has a very calm atmosphere . The menu had a nice variety . The price point was regular which was nice. The presentation of the food was awesome but the taste and consistency of some things were off. Maybe the chef had an off night.
A hidden downtown Anchorage gem
This lovely bistro-style spot in the South Addition/Inlet View neighborhood is rapidly becoming a family favorite. It's a great place to meet friends for dinner after work or to take out-of-town guests who are staying downtown but don't want to fight long lines for a table at one of the big, well-known restaurants. The cocktails are creative and well-crafted, the draft beer and list is thoughtfully selected and the food is adventurous and delicious. High marks all around.
I really wanted to like the Pub, but it just didn't deliver.
SERVICE: Very slow, and not in a "we are dining" kind of way.
We waited 10-15 minutes for our server, and upon his arrival we ordered some wine. After another 10 minutes he reappeared with alternatives, so we ordered something else.
FOOD: tasty, but nothing to rave about. they were out of my first choice entree, so I ordered the flat iron steak - a nice dish. We had to send the New York strip back - almost raw inside! Second one was very good! I can recommend the bread pudding - light and not overly sweet. But could do without the chocolate drizzles.
The food was not good. We sent the waffles back and I don't think the second ones were any better. The chicken was bland. The fact that for mothers day the only thing we found on the menu that we'd like was chicken and waffles; imagine that.
