For the past 2 1/2 years I've driven past Kinley's, but never tried it. The outside looks dated, the sort of place that screams, "Anchorage Fancy". The parking lot always seemed empty, in stark contrast to Moose's Tooth behind it, which I thought was a sign. So, I never tried it. Until yesterday. Yesterday, a colleague wanted to take me...

The location of this place has always struck me as sort of strange and everyone in town makes fun of their weird Comic Sans sign, but the food and service is great. This is an awesome place to swing in for a drink and an appetizer, at the very least. They have an extensive wine list, and I frequently bring... More

The food here is above expectation. It has been a long time since I've been to a restaurant where I just wanted to try everything! I recommend the Tuna Tartar Tacos!

My wife and I went to Kinley's for a late lunch. As always, the dining area was very nice, but the food was not up to usual standards. We ordered the ahi tacos and the steak and shrimp skewers; black coffee to drink. The tacos were cold, the coffee was cold, and the skewers ($14) were skimpy. There were four... More

We made reservation for lunch anticipating to be seated in the restaurant side of this establishment but were instead seated in the bar area. The server could not have cared less if we were there as paying customers or not. He was curt with us and very ill mannered. The music was so loud that we were unable to hear... More

We eat here fairly often and are still impressed that the food is consistently great. The bacon wrapped dates and the calarmari steak for appetizers are the BEST! The Parisian salad that we shared was good but not great. The Lobster Ravioli and the Duck Confit were fabulous as main dishes. This is the first time that we ordered more... More

A widely varied and unique menu with upscale taste and casual atmosphere, you can't go wrong with Kinleys for a nice evening out. I love their halibut served with fruited sauce and rice, their salads are nicely trimmed, lunch menu has nice variety of sandwiches, and they feature upscale wines by the glass.

The very first time we ate here was honestly because it's next door to the Moose's Tooth and the wait was too long. We decided to go next door to Kinley's and we weren't disappointed. We've been back probably another 20+ times, for full seat down meals and a quick snack in the lounge. Service has always been friendly from... More
