Default Dinner in Anchorage

We are arriving in Anchorage the afternoon before our first-ever cruise and taking the train the following morning to Seward. Where is a good place to have an Alaskan (seafood) dinner, not too expensive, in Anchorage? We are staying downtown near the train station. Any info would be appreciated

It really depends upon your taste in seafood. The city's whole downtown area is imminently walkable and quite safe, and I have yet to eat in a restaurant in the whole downtown district to which I'm not very eager to return. The best advice is to wander the streets, which offer plenty of choices, until you find a place that suits your tastes.

BTW, the downtown area of Anchorage is very easy to navigate. Streets are in a grid, numbered consecutively one way and lettered consecutively the other. The main railroad station is on First Street, right at the edge of the downtown area. Unfortunately, back in the 1960's, a major earthquake formed a cliff between Second Street and Third Street, severing most of the lettered streets on that block. IIRC, it's only A Street and L Street, at the respective ends of town, that are still entact. The real downtown is now on top of the cliff, roughly between Third Street and Eighth Street and between C Street and K Street. And the natives say that the best feature of Anchorage is that it's so close to Alaska.

Have a great cruise and a great stay in Anchorage!

Norm.
