Best of Anchorage, Alaska

Spenard Roadhouse has good food but it has been very crowded, and is still working on service issues. But it's new and I'm sure it will settle down. Double Musky is definitely worth a visit, and I also like Maxine's Glacier City Bistro, also in Girdwood. I don't like the menu or food or service at Suite 100, but it's a nice place to have a drink. Villa Nova is definitely worth a visit. I think Jens and Kincaid Grill are both nice, but the strip mall ambience is a turn-off to me. I've heard good things about Peppercini's but haven't been there. And I'll have to try Hula Hands.
