Good food, nice atmosphere. Good selection of Small plates. The pork tacos were delish. Reasonable prices.

After living in Fairbanks for 35 plus years, we have chosen Zach's for various reasons over the years. Normally quiet, fairly good food. So when my wife asked where I would like to go for my Birthday, I said Zach's. She made reservations for 6...More

A nice place to go for a nice dinner. Good for a family dinner, business or romantic. Good menu selection, not horrible prices, but not cheap.

Great place for very nice lunch. Good service, even greater food. Reasonable lunch for the quality. I am less inclined to eat dinner here as it a bit on spendy side. Haven’t actually eaten dinner here in years.

The best wings and the best nachos I've had in Fairbanks. I haven't tried them all but these are great. And enjoyed the mulligatawny soup as well. Bread pudding and coffee were great too. Wait staff was slower than I'd like but not terrible.
