American Restaurant

“Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner options....one of the more "affordable" options in town. For breakfast - every meal is able to feed two or three people, so if you know how to share, that is definitely the only way to go to save money....as well as avoid a food coma.”

Lodging
“Long Rifle Lodge is within walking distance of our cabin. They have an excellent restaurant and bar, with a stunning view of the Matanuska Glacier. Both our cabin and the lodge were built in the 1970s, with help from the same creative neighbors, so you will see similarities in the woodwork. Long Rifle Lodge serves great burgers, burritos, and has vegetarian options. The lodge is decorated with the widest variety of taxidermied Alaskan animals that you will probably find on your trip to Alaska - great for taking selfies! They do close early, so do not wait til late in the evening to go there. ”

“The most affordable food option in town. Portions are very reasonable for the price. The halibut sandwich is the most bang for one's buck as far as a halibut meal is concerned. I like to order the chicken bacon ranch sandwich or the calamari basket. ”

“Best view in town (from a bar) Prices are lower than the Mermaid. Food is not the greatest, but if you stick to appetizers, it should be ok.”

“Super economical, all-american....SUMMER....food options. It is very to "create your own" potato basket at a very reasonable price. My order: small fries topped with pulled pork, fried egg, fried onions/peppers....add whatever sauce you like from their selection.”

Food Truck

“Everything is good, eclectic McCarthy cuisine. Ask for your meal "over fries" or "over greens" for gluten free options. If it's slow and your feeling adventurous, ask for a "surprise over fries/greens" and let the chefs cook you a unique meal. ”
