We had the Glacier burger and the grilled chicken sandwich at the Long Rifle Lodge. The food was decent, I enjoyed my chicken sandwich and the view of that Matanuska glacier was a good companion as we ate. The restaurant is full of dead stuffed animals so at first it's a bit strange to see all these heads and eyes staring at me but I got used to it. I think the prices are good and would recommend this to others in the area.

This is a true Alaskan lodge restaurant with stuffed wildlife and good down home cooking. Delicious and restful, after a hike on Matanuska Glacier.

I've known the folks who own Longrifle since Russell was a little guy. The food is great, you can't beat the view of the glacier (be sure to take pictures from the balcony), lots of cool critters. Don't miss this. The drive from Anchorage is well worth the time. Hike on the Matanuska Glacier. After all...when is the last time you walked on a glacier?

The drive from Palmer is wonderful, all cares vanish as you rise through the pass and the Matanuska Glacier view from the rustic log chairs makes the average food delightful.
