I enjoyed my breakfast there more than either of the dinners I had there. The food served in the restaurant was better than that served in the lounge, in my opinion. The only reason the restaurant did not receive five stars, is because they do not serve breakfast or lunch on the weekends. I found that kind of odd. Loved... More

It is more than average by the way. They served breakfast up to 11:00 am. We only have a chance to eat breakfast. I ordered chef's special hash brown, cabbage, red onion slice and pretty good. It is American food. I would say a little better than Denny, but the best option you have if you want to avoid outside... More

Went here for a lunch meeting. We all ordered something different. When we got our food it was either cold or really did not have good flavor. Some of the sauces taste like either they were right out of a jar or like the whole bottle of vinegar was dumped into it. The server was friendly and tried to be... More

Excellent food - excellent waitstaff ! The service is by very personable waitstaff. It is a normally quiet dining experience, with fast service at all but full house capacity, and very reasonable even then. I enjoy both breakfast and lunch there.

I had both a breakfast and lunch here while staying at Sophie Station Hotel. This is an upscale restaurant frequented by locals as well as hotel guests. The restaurant boasts a very nice atmosphere, a cordial and professional staff, and very good food.

Hidden in Sophie Station Hotel & Suites, Zach's is a gem. Unexpected ambience provides a relaxing start or finish to your day of touring. We had fresh blueberry pancakes one morning and a top chef sort of Greek omelet the next. The wait staff was second to none. You can dine inside or outside at this second story treasure.

The breakfast was wonderful. I am from Texas and ordered the breakfast tacos. They were outstanding. I added bacon and jalapenos. The tortillas were nothing like I expected. I wish I had known about this place a long time ago. I have been in Fairbanks for the past 8 years. This will now be my new breakfast place. I have... More

We dropped into the bar after a local event, and were seated immediately. Comfy place, and attentive service. I recommend the mulligatawny soup, the cod&scallops, and the veg linguine. The BloodyMary they offer is hit and miss, and as a fan of a good BloodyMary, this is somewhat troubling. The other drinks are all terrific, with a good selection to... More
