Another great restaurant…a little bit of a drive from Orland, but you would certainly work up an appetite on the way; Simon & Seafort’s in Anchorage. We made our reservations for 7:30 and we only had to wait for a few minutes before we were seated. The restaurant is located at the western end of Anchorage, on the bluff that overlooks the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet and it has plenty of windows, so you can watch the boats…and the planes from just about every table.
The menu is designed for seafood lovers, although there were the usual beef options for those who like it. Everyone at our table (except myself) ordered salmon, Copper River salmon, while I ordered the halibut cheeks. Now I have had cheeks before, in Seattle…and they had been quite good, but these were excellent!
Everyone had high praise for the salmon; mild and sweet. The service was great and after the table was cleared, Laurae and I shared a berry cobbler with ice cream. It was huge…made to be shared.
We left the restaurant about 10 PM, put our sunglasses on and headed back to the hotel and sleep. A most enjoyable evening; it really is a 5 star restaurant.
