Mixed feelings. The food was excellent. Try the bacon of the month, yummy!!! The cocktails were mediocre. Like almost bad. The cocktails sound like they should be incredible by the description but they fall very short. Just bland. The service was okay, our waitress barely checked on us and it was slow in there during our visit.

Every time I am in Anchorage I stop by Spenard Roadhouse, sometime alone but often with friends and co-workers. Staff and Todd always measure up to my high expectations. Those blackened Brussels sprouts are amazing and The specialty drinks....

Chris, our waiter, did a fantastic job serving us. We loved our breakfast (Eggs benedict, irish coffee, and my hubby had the super tots with 2 eggs on top). It wasn't too busy, and we ate pretty quickly.

Spenard Roadhouse is a fixture in Anchorage, and the building it is now in is a fixture too - it used to be the Hogg Brothers Cafe. Not much has changed in the past 20 years. The food is still good, the service is still okay, the prices are still reasonable. I had their Bacon Jam Burger, a unique melding... More

Pleasant evening with great food at the Roadhouse. Busy night when we went, so had to wait about 30 minutes. The whiskey/bourbon drinks are their specialty. Reasonable price for great food.

A coworker took me here for lunch while in town. I was really hungry and everything looked really good. I was really impressed with the Mac & Cheese, it was truly one of the best I have ever eaten at a restaurant. The cheese sauce was really thick and a deep flavor profile that was just outstanding. The crumbled bacon... More

Though the menu may seem limited what they have managed to do is focus on quality rather than a huge variety. We started with the lavendar infused pork belly (which was the "bacon of the month", talk about decadent and scrumptious. we had the bacon jam burger and the oxtail and bleu pizza. We shared both and were super satisfied.

Usually a burger joint doesn't have either great salads/hot veggies nor snazzy mixed drinks. This cozy family-style restaurant has all that plus really friendly wait-staff

I've eaten dinner here a couple of times and safe to say I will go again. A group of us went this last time and share what we had. One of us ate daily special. Pork belly with bacon macaroni salad and onion rings, excellent. The Roadhouse burger and fries was also very good as was the Da Works pizza.... More

The quinoa salad is amazing, and that combined with the blackened Brussel south was truly amazing. Last call was before 11pm, but I stayed eating and drinking until about 11:30 ad nobody was rushing me out or anything.

Thank Carl P
