I️ was not very impressed by the service because the bar tender was working double duty as the wait staff as well, and smelled VERY strongly of smoke. The dining area was pretty stripped down although there were some cool denali climbing mementos. Because of the service and lack of atmosphere and ishy wait staff I️ was prepared to give this place a two star rating... BUT! Then our food came! AmAzInG! The food was excellent. It was literally the best burger I️ have ever had! The food certainly made up for everything else and then some! The West Rib gets a solid four stars!

I was taking a vacation in Alaska in the summer of 2017 and stopped in Talkketna and ended up at West Rib Pub having a great time eating and having fun with the local Alaskans that were working at and enjoying the eclectic town and life style of Talkeetna Alaska. The steamed clams and wine sauce was unbelievable! The Moscow Mule was excellent and Heather the bartender was so friendly and fun. This is the real Alaskan experience you can find in Talkeetna. Go see this pub and Heather and you will not be disappointed. Thanks for the great Alaskan hospitality Heather! Pam

We came here for the caribou burger. It was all that I expected. But nothing was MORE about this restaurant or experience. The prices were high even for the region and I left with a sorta flat feeling. There has to be a better caribou burger out there somewhere.
