When reading the menu we thought we'd be in for a huge gastronomic treat. Everything sounded amazing, inventive and imaginative but the reality was quite a let down. Some of the mixtures of flavours just didn't really work and/or not cooked quite right. While this sounds picky, we think it's worth mentioning considering this place is a little on the... More

Good little place to grab some great dishes! Pricier like most places to eat in Fairbanks, but I've had great food each time. Service was good. When it's a hot day it's nice to eat outside. I would recommend and wish they were open year round instead of seasonal!

Had a great meal over the weekend. Good service and fresh food. The view on the deck is fantastic and there was some live music too.

We found Chena's hill walking to the shops. We liked the menu and decided to give it a go. We liked it so much we went back the next night. We shared the meals. Night 1 we had a cheese burger and night 2 we had filet Mignon. Both were excellent. Chena's has a great range of beers too.

They have just opened for the season, and it ran smoothly with a good sized local crowd. The steak and crab cake was delicious. We shared a strip steak, cooked perfectly and tender. We added a crab cake. It was mostly crab, little filling [perfect] but tiny.

This little restaurant sits on the Chena River. The grounds are lovely and with the right weather a beautiful walk. The food was delicious. I have lamb chops that melted in my mouth
