When I moved to Anchorage, I was told I HAD to visit the Mooses Tooth. It is always busy and you can usually expect to wait a few minutes. There are both indoor and outdoor waiting areas, as well as a bar where you can usually get immediate service. There is a brewery - they also brew their own root beer - and gift items as well. Growlers are available and there are often new brews and special events. The food is good and plentiful. Prices are competitive. Both a family friendly and date place. If you visit Anchorage, visit the Mooses Tooth.
Cons: Wait, Noisy
