The Fairbanks restaurant scene is reflective of its climate. From its long, dark winters comes a penchant for comfort food served by friendly staff in a congenial atmosphere. From its bright, warm summers comes a preference for dining al fresco. Pikes Landing offers both, with hearty menu items like cheddar melts and prime rib and a popular riverside deck. We also often recommend the Alaskan Salmon Bake, a fun evening dining experience in Pioneer Park. For an economical meal, the Chowder House is a perfect choice.
