Best “appy” hours in AlaskaBack To Blog
- Simon and Seafort’s
For not one but two daily happy hours, check out Simon and Seafort’s in Anchorage. From 3–6 p.m. and 9–close, you can taste some of Alaska’s best fine dining. The happy hour menu features everything from sweet potato fries (gluten free!) to fresh oysters. Everyone is sure to find something to enjoy, there’s even a little something for dessert.
When the first thing on the menu is king crab corndogs, you know you’re in for a treat! Orso in Anchorage features local ingredients in many of their dishes and offers appetizer specials every day from 3–6 p.m. and 9–close. We recommend pairing your apps with one of their specialty cocktails or non-alcoholic mocktails.
- Friar Tuck’s Hoagie House
Lovers of wings, cheese fries and football, rejoice! Friar Tuck’s in Fairbanks has half-priced apps every day from 3–5 p.m. and $5 orders of wings during Thursday night NFL games. They also have plenty of Alaska brews on tap and a couple of domestics, too, for all the creatures of habit in your party.
- Rafter’s Lounge
Located inside the Kenai Princess Riverside Lodge, this is the best place to enjoy a cocktail or Alaska microbrew on a deck overlooking the beautiful scenery of the Kenai. The Rafter’s Lounge is perfect for lodge guests who want to relax without leaving the property. The appetizers are certainly enough to substitute for dinner but if you’re still hungry, there are plenty of additional options available.
- Lynx Creek
Pizza, ice cream and beer, need we say more? The best thing about pizza is that you can feed the whole family with one! Lynx Creek is a local favorite at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge. You can enjoy the atmosphere of an Alaska log cabin or have it delivered to your room. Some killer appetizers include Buffalo bread knots and Nenana nachos. Another plus, they’re open until midnight to feed all your late-night cravings!
