A quaint, family-friendly eatery ensconced in a deep red, house-like building in the heart of Girdwood’s town square, Silvertip Grill cooks homespun American classics and slakes thirsts with a wide assortment of beer and wine. In addition to timeless dinner entrees such as fish 'n' chips, Silvertip's staff prepares breakfast all day. At the hand-built spruce bar, tenders pour eight beers from the tap and pass out approximately 30 varieties of microbrews and specialty bottles. The libation crew also liquefies stemmed glassware with 10–12 wines. Outside in the spacious beer garden, guests can practice tossing or trying on horseshoes in one of two pits, gather around a fire pit—which is typically used for pig roasts—or dine to the beat of live music on the weekends.

Blues Central lives up to its name by presenting nights of smoky blues music and preparing a menu of bar fare as rich as the tunes. On Friday and Saturday live shows, guests gather in front of the stage to soak up neon light and listen to the ghostly wail of guitars, a tradition that began when the establishment opened in 1964 on top of the remains of a haunted music school. Open for lunch daily at 11 a.m., Blues Central hosts happy hour Monday–Friday, 4 p.m.–7 p.m., and lists upcoming acts and specials on its event page, including T Harvey Combo shows and open mic night on Sundays at 8 p.m. Onlookers down brews and feast on chicken wings, seafood, and nine types of French dip sandwiches filled with the likes of meatloaf, barbecue pork, and slow-roasted beef with plenty of au jus for dunking.
