Stopped by for late breakfast with the locals. This one of the few non-fast food restaurants on the south side of Wasilla. Service was prompt and cheerful. It didn't take long to get the order, and the wait staff made sure we had any extras we, or she thought we could need. Prices were mid-range by lower 48 standards, but... More

Never a wait: good service but it is an old-school greasy eatery: nice portions could be bigger for the price but it is what it is. Stop by and check it out

We had a nice meal here but probably wouldn't go back. The food and service were average. The atmosphere is casual and the menu okay.

Had a good meal and the prices were reasonable. The staff were pleasant enough and the meal arrived in fairly quick order.

Up in Alaska for a month send just had my third visit for breakfast here. Scrambled eggs with diced ham and coffee was affordable and tasted good. Hash browns are good and service again was top notch. Not sure when I get to come back but always look forward to coming here for breakfast.

As I write this, the Trout Place and Windbreak Cafe is listed as #42 of 95 restaurants in Wasilla. Huh? How is that possible for such an excellent restaurant? This place is always dependable for good food and excellent service. Their breakfasts are especially good (you have to try the Philly Cheesesteak Omelet)! Good food, perfect coffee, excellent service all... More

I've been eating at the Windreak (now aka Trout's House or Trouthouse) literally since it opened - around 40 years now. It was good then, it's good now. It's never not been good. The food is mainline America, straight from the classic menu fare. They add a few twists here and there, as most places do, and they have their... More

This place is a staple in the valley. It is what it is All American fare. So it never disappoints. I have been there for breakfast and lunch dozens of times over the years. Sat in the restaurant, sat in the bar(red vinyl boths). I prefer the bar for sure. It is just cozy and feels homey. The food is... More
