One of the best views of the sunset over Cook Inlet and Mt. Susitna is found behind an outstanding piece of Simon's Key Lime Pie. This restaurant offers a full view of the Alaska Range. As incredible as the food, view and service are, do not look for an especially intimate dinner here, as this is a lively spot filled with locals and visitors alike. With the freshest seafood available, your entree is made to order. Prime rib, steaks and plenty of pasta specials are part of the ever-changing menu.
Established in the 60s, the same family still operates this local steakhouse. The signature four-inch thick, 14-ounce filet mignon established the "fine steakhouse" reputation. Other entree options include the 16-ounce New York steak, 16-ounce Prime Rib; as well as appetizers like steamer clams and Cajun mushrooms. Desserts like the macadamia nut pie will likely have to be taken home because portions are so large. The best advice, resign yourself and keep ordering. It is worth every penny and bite.
Massive bottles of Veuve Clicquot (gold label) grace the long wooden tables placed as dividers within this large, one-room dining room. Hand-cut steaks and an extensive wine list draw a crowd every night. Appetizers of Baked Clams Casino, oysters on the half shell, and Sullivan's crab cakes are excellent starts to a terrific meal. Nine optional side dishes complement the entrees, which include salmon steaks and grilled tuna, lamb rib chops and filet mignon. Live bands play in the bar on weekends.
