We asked for a recommendation to a good restaurant in Fairbanks and were told that Lavelle's was the one. It looks quite rustic at first glance but the meal we had was excellent and the service very friendly. Don't miss this one in Fairbanks

Slower service than I would have liked, but the place was packed, and the food was excellent. Will certainly return!

I frequent this spot every time I'm in town. It's a staple in downtown Fairbanks. I is always roaring with people so call ahead for reservations. I usually sit at the bar and get the most impeccable service. The main bartender Larry is known for...More

Wanted a special occasion dinner, and decided to try this downtown bistro. Unless you're in France, you never know what to expect of a bistro, but Lavelle's take on a French style bistro is spot on - the food was brilliant and creative in a...More

We will be open on Christmas Eve but not on Christmas Day and we only open at 4:30. We are hosting our 18th annual New Years Eve Party on the 31st and it is always a hugely good time. Hope to see you there. Frank, Owner

Hi Chinablue48, We most definitely serve fresh seafood all summer long. As far as shell fish goes, I would highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab legs. They're scrumptious. We also have fresh Alaskan oysters and clams on... More
