Classic Alaskan dining in a beautiful rustic setting at Gwennies. That said, watch out for the sticky tables.... the good Lord only knows how many gallons of maple syrup are served here weekly and every time we’ve been the tables have been plenty sticky. That...More

Large portions on breakfast entrees. They will split an entree for you. Our favorites are either bacon or reindeer sausage. Lots of Alaska history on the walls of the dinning rooms. We enjoy taking visiting family and friends here to start our day.

Very cool antiques and pictures to look at while waiting for a table. It is like an old roadhouse without the exceptional food. Food just average. Disappointed in the cheese whiz they use for omelette’s.

Been here a few times for breakfast and always gotten large portions of good food. The Alaskan memorabilia is fun to see as well, including the full mount bear in the middle of the dining area. Lots of room for larger groups too

The food is good...the service is Alaskan. If you are from here you will understand. It is better than most places. Prices are fair.

Best breakfast ever! The egg omelets are huge and really good! If you are in Anchorage make a point to go to Gwennies for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is a true Alaskan experience and has been in Anchorage for decades!!!

Had dinner last night. Six of us enjoyed a great meal and quiet evening together. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent. Good "home-cooking" at a reasonable price. And it's always enjoyable to be able to visit over a meal without having...More
