Love this place. Food is excellent. The staff was a little slow even though they were not busy. The atmosphere was great. Highly recommended. Great dessert too

“Good for Dinner, Fair for Breakfast”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel post cruise and ate Dinner and Breakfast at Zach's. We both had burgers for dinner and thy were very good. Almost to it for one person. The breakfast buffet was another story. Compared with other buffets we have been o this was lacking. There was no fresh cooked omelets and the pancakes were not hot. The sausage and bacon were good though. For the price I expected more.

“OK option”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

The restaurant was ok but I wouldn't call it anything special. It was a decent place to get a drink in the hotel but my wife didn't like her drink (I thought it was decent). We got nachos and they were pretty tasty. Like most things in Alaska, I'd say it was overpriced compared to what you'd get in the lower 48 states.

“Breakfast Only”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

We arrived for breakfast at 9:50am and found that we were the only ones there. It looked like they had provided a wonderful breakfast buffet to the groups who left earlier. Never the less, the service was excellent with two friendly servers who went out of their way to be accomodating. We both had an omelet with sides, toast and coffee. The omelets were large and very tasty. The restaurant was very clean and had a nice decor. We were well pleased.

“Far from the usual tourist fare”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

A bit out of the way, but well worth the effort to locate Zach's. Very friendly and efficient staff, and the food was fresh and excellently prepared. If I lived in Fairbanks I would definitely be a regular customer!
