The name says it all. This place is a really good traditional American diner with the dishes you'd expect, plus reindeer sausage, which likely wouldn't be on American menus other than in Alaska. Service is friendly and they pay attention. We had breakfast here. My...More

Had breakfast here a few times and each time the staff were very friendly and the plates of food were huge. It is frequented by many locals each morning which speaks volumes about the place.

Not miss a good breakfast if you are in Fairbanks. Old fashion diner with huge plates and normal price for it.

Small, cozy and homegrown! The Diner has become my most recent FAV for brekkies and brunch time. Menu choices are varied and delish (Omelettes and Skillets abound), food is plentiful, and your coffee cup NEVER gets cold! We've had a party of up to 7...More
