“Out in the middle of no where”

Tonsina River Lodge Restaurant
Cuisines: Russian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 August 2017

Yes, out in the middle of no where this restaurant was recommended by the B and B we are staying in. It didn't look like much but the food was the best we have eaten since we started traveling 2 weeks ago. I had the Russian pot, which is a pot roast with a tremendous flavor. Wow. My husband had a noodle that was stuffed with meat, he thought his was the best! So take a chance, we were not disappointed.

What a delectable treat on our way from Anchorage to Valdez. Tonsina River Lodge is located about 60 miles north of Valdez along the Richardson highway. The owners are Russian and they make and serve the most delicious, authentic homemade Russian food. There are several Russian as well as American food entrees on their menu and Russian appetizers to get started. They also have some Russian gifts for sale. We'll definitely make Tonsina lodge one of our dining stops in the future.

What a surprising and unusual experience. When we entered the restaurant we weren't sure it was open.... A man who spoke Russian nodded for us to wait a second, and then a nice woman arrived and seated us in the clean, quaint table area. We were the only ones in the whole place and we played pool while waiting. We ended up having one of the BEST meals EVER. Literally someone was in the kitchen cooking up something just for us-- and it was delicious!!!!! Authentic. Fresh. Very warming and tasty. Very polite and kind service, too. What a cool experience.

This place has rooms and laundry and also a bar and restaurant. Ample parking for Rv and such. Food was great! Russian menu with American items too. Borscht was great and so was the fried chicken.

Absolutely delicious, authentic Russian food. Casual, bar/restaurant ambience with TV going behind our table, and few patrons. So we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food. We'll certainly be back next time we're in Alaska.
