Dining and Nightlife

Settler’s Bay Lodge has long been a tra­di­tion for locals, who come to this din­ner-only restau­rant for the deli­cious cui­sine and a vibrant, fam­i­ly-friend­ly atmos­phere. Huge floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows show­case spec­tac­u­lar views of the gor­geous Matanus­ka-Susit­na Val­ley, with the Chugach Moun­tains beyond.

Just a 45-minute dri­ve from Anchor­age, Raven’s Perch lies with­in the main lodge at the cozy Alas­ka Glac­i­er Lodge, with big win­dows and an out­door deck look­ing out to a spec­tac­u­lar view. The focus here is on local, sus­tain­able ingre­di­ents and prod­ucts. The staff talks with local farm­ers and plans ahead to see what veg­eta­bles are com­ing into sea­son to cre­ate their menus.
