The food here was amazing! Everyone in my party enjoyed their lunch. The waiter was very, very accommodating, and went out of his way to be kind to the children in our group.

What a nice place to spend a cold, rainy day! The bar is located as soon as you walk in. Take a seat & eat here. The bartender will answer all your tourist questions!!!! The food is fabulous!!! Several homemade soups to stick to your bones, sandwiches piled high with select meats, great side dishes & nice selection of wines.... More

Service was ok, Jameson the executive chef is top notch!!! Extensive knowledge of local food and classic preparation. Ask for a table outside by the river, beautiful setting.

This facility is located adjacent to the Fairbanks Rivers Edge Resort. Too cool and rainy to use the deck so we were seated and we waited, and waited and waited; long enough for about 4 beers altho we only had one. Poor service and not extremely visit with no wait time at the door or bar. Excellent guitar player for... More

We came here on a Tuesday night 2nd week of September. The tourists are on the wane and so is the speed of service it would seem. It was busy - with people almost lining up out the door on the evening we arrived. Like many before us - we had not made a reservation - it's September! We waited... More

The meals were very overpriced and not that good. I'm an Alaskan, I know good fish but my halibut was overdone and my colleagues salmon was under done. The menu drew us in, but it was disappointing. My salad ($6.95 with entree) was mad of browned ice berg lettuce 2 slices of cucumber 2 cherry tomatoes and shaved carrots. I... More

We recently had dinner at Chena's Alaskan Grill and were lucky enough to be able to eat out on the patio on this "warm" night. The view of the river is beautiful! We both had the salmon; I had the Thai-Ginger special. Both were delicious. Service was excellent and quite an extensive menu. I would definitely go back!

We walked the short distance, maybe a half a mile each way, from the Fairbanks Princess Lodge to The Chena Alaskan Grille. We arrived just as they were opening at 5:30 p.m. and were escorted to a table. It was a drizzly day and could not enjoy their lovely outdoor deck seating area. The waitress was relaxed and had a...
