Love this place. As it was the end of the Salmon season, 90% of all the restaurants were closed down for the season accept for Kingfisher. And couldn't have been happier eating their 4 nights in a row after a day of drifting down the Kenai and pounding the Rainbows and Dollies. Their menu is great and varied, good beers... More

We ate 3 evenings at Kingfisher. The chef did a great job with the shepherd's pie, caribou pasta, and bleu burger. I had the Caesar salad all 3 meals and it was very good. Good beer on tap and excellent service rounded out the meal.

My wife and I were staying at a nearby bed & breakfast. We had dinner on two occasions at this restaurant. Both times the food was quite good, including the service. The restaurant is beautifully located beside a lake. We enjoyed our experience there.

Two of us had dinner at Kingfisher Roadhouuse. We tried the salmon chowder and the Belizean stew chicken. Both were excellent. The salmon chowder had a lot of salmon in it and was very nicely seasoned. The Belizean stew chicken had rice, beans, onions, and chicken in a flavorful broth. Spicy, but not too spicy. They also had a nice... More

The Kingfisher Roadhouse is a gem in Cooper Landing. You can dine overlooking Kenai Lake and the place has a warm, funky, rustic decor. Killer good salmon chowder and I still drool thinking about my dinner of seared scallops with brussels sprouts, squash and asiago polenta.

The venison sliders and caribou stroganoff were to die for ! Over looking the river at dusk made it perfect.

Outstanding food and service - loved the place. Water front dining, excellent menu, nice wine list and craft beers! After a long day fishing great spot to wind down.
