Atmosphere
Food
Service

I was incredibly disappointed by Gwennies. The service was terrible and the food was gross. When I got there, I ordered an entre and a side of eggs that my waitress told me would cost $2.50. The entre was awful, so I only ate the eggs. When the bill came, I noticed that I had been charged $4.25 for the eggs. I objected to this and the waitress stated that because I had eaten the eggs I had to pay the elevated price. I asked her to make an exception and she stated that she would get her manager. She never did. Instead, she came back and stated that the manager had decided that I had "misunderstood" her. Because the "misunderstanding" was my fault, I had to pay the full price for the eggs. I did but I will never pay for or purchase anything else at Gwennies. In my opinion, if you misquote a price to a customer, you cover the cost and if you say that you're getting the manager you do. It's common courtesy.

food poisening more then once!

I got food poisening here a few monthes ago, after much talking my boyfriend got me to go there again. Afterwards, his food poisening was terrible. They refused to do anything for us, even refunding our money, even after we brought in a doctor's note.

Pictures are interesting - food not so much

This restaurant has many fun museum pieces for you viewing pleasure. The overall decor is substandard and ambiance deficient. Breakfasts are generally served in large portions with lost of potatoes. Lunch and dinner is standard sandwich or meat and potatoes. If you are looking for interesting historical pictures, this is the place to go. If you are looking for fine food, you would be best served at other establishments.

Nice atmosphere, Breakfast...Not so nice

Gwennies has some really neat Alaska artifacts and displays, lots of vintage photographs and Anchorage history. However the food really isn't that good. Gwennies doesn't use real cheese for their omelettes, they use Velveeta or some other kind of ""cheese"" sauce. They are also a bit on the expensive side, I might recommend Gwennies for visiting friends or relatives for lunch maybe but I'll stay away from breakfast.

Great place to eat

This is a great place to eat. Breakfast is wonderful, lunch is delicious, and the all you can eat ribs is awesome.

I won't go here again...

Rude hostess, rude waittress, angry bus boy and icky french toast. Everything was just wrong with this place. When we arrived, we were told we would have a 30 minute wait, so we put our name on the list and left to take care of an errand. We came back about 20 minutes later to find that they called our name, no biggie. Well... I was wrong! The hostess copped a slight attitude and told us to not to leave the area again. When we sat down, the waitress was all over the place, crashing coffee pots on the table. When my food arrived, the french toast was all stuck together, the fork and glass was dirty. To top off the morning, the bus boy was all peeved off. Throwing his cleaning towel and slamming dishes, muttering profanities under his breath.

Good place to take the tourist who wants to see some Anchorage History, but if you live here, there are better places to have a meal. The people and articles they have collected are really great, menu and prices could use some work.
