This restaurant is located inside of the Best Western Golden Lion Hotel. It serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Although the menu is a bit limited, the food is good and the servers are attentive. The breakfast choices are as expected (e.. omelets, eggs, breakfast meats, toast, juice, etc.). I had several breakfasts here on my last trip to Anchorage and... More

We tried dinner and breakfast. Dinner was delicious. Chicken was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Salad was fresh and above average. Bacon was tasty. They did not have hash browns but I guess different areas cook potatoes differently. The breakfast potatoes were good

Food was good. Went for dinner and had a wonderful and attentive server. The next morning I went in for breakfast and the Lady didn't even bring me what I ordered. It was similiar, but not what i ordered... She also switched the orders of the other two people in the restaurant.

Walking in a hotel restaurant at dinner time and seeing it empty should be a clue. Waitress was brand new, by her own admission, and no one was helping her. She knew nothing when asked about items on the menu. The food had no flavor and tasted like it was just opened up out of a package and thawed out.

Had the salmon dinner special and Alaska Amber Ale. Both were good but the salmon was somewhat dry. Service was excellent.

Where do I begin? Biscuits and gravy was small but not bad. Omelet had too much fluffy egg and oil (butter?) compared to filling. They do not have hash-browns but small potatoes instead, which were good. Service was ok, but would only eat here if it was nearly free! We only paid $5 with tip. If you are staying in... More
