This is not a bad little place. It's not terribly expensive and has a lot of Alaska atmosphere and locals. The food is more or less classic bar food. Stick with burger, fries and chili and you will be fine. I strayed into the blackened fish tacos which was a mistake. The bar has much more atmosphere than the restaurant... More

This place was filled to the gills on Saturday night. The food was worth the short wait. The server was friendly and gave valuable advice on what to order. I went with the grilled halibut "burger". It was outstanding. Service was excellent. It was filled with families unwinding after a busy week.

We came for dinner, stayed for drinks, and closed the place down at 3AM. The food was good, the drinks kept coming, there was great conversation, and there was a fun local crowd!

We had a great evening at Chair 5. The atmosphere is one of a local dive bar with a pool table in the middle. We met some really interesting local people and had lots of fun. The food was amazing! I had fish tacos that were fantastic. It was, however, very expensive. $33 for tacos is a little high in... More

We got to Girdwood mid afternoon and were starving so we happened upon this place and wanted just to grab something. I ordered the fish and chips which happened to be of halibut.. The BEST I have ever had. They have burgers and so much more!

Stopped for lunch with family and Grandchildren and our server, Wendi was awesome with the little kids. So interactive and accommodating. The lunch for the 6 of us was excellent and the view was outstanding.

We were in Girdwood outside the main tourist season so this bar provided a great atmosphere including the locals. Plus vegetarian pizza was delicious. I would definitely go back.

They have great food, service can be slow at times. My kids love the fish and chips as well as the burgers. It's a fun atmosphere as well. A little pricey, but most things are in Girdwood.
