Amazing food, beer, atmosphere, location, price

We went for lunch one summer Friday, expecting crowds and high prices. We got a tad lost and some locals helped us, approving of our choice. When we walked in near the end of lunch, the place was mostly empty. The staff was extremely polite and prompt in seating us and getting our orders. Though they could've insisted it was late enough for dinner, they were accommodating to our taste. My friend and I ordered some of their beers and were blown away with how good they were, I had a pleasant raspberry wheat which more than held it's own against other standard wheats (Blue Moon, Hefeweizen) as a beer, not just a gimmick. For food, we were even more impressed. The Alaskan Salmon Po'boy had the perfect seasoning, which also allowed the fish's flavor to come forth. Again, the staff was great here; recommendations, the right amount of attention, and friendly. The settings and decoration were refined and muted, beautiful interior. We went in tshirts and jeans and felt comfortable, but would've been just at home in suits like the party behind us. And in the end, the bill was what we would've expected at some lower-quality chain or mediocre hotel restaurant: $10-15 lunch entrees, $3-5 beers. No tourist-gouging like other places.\r \r If you're in Anchorage for even a single meal, call on this place.
