There are a dozen burgers at Long Branch Saloon, but the cooks treat each as if it were the only one in the world. They make every facet—the bun, the patty, and even the fries—in-house, forming a delectable base for topping combinations such as ham and swiss or bacon and cheese. And all this effort has paid off. During the Anchorage Daily News' 2012 March Madness–themed burger-bracket showdown, Long Branch Saloon's burger came out on top, earning the championship with its "scrumptious bun" and juicy patty.
With this title under their belts, the cooks haven’t just hung up their aprons. Instead, they bolster their menu with beer-battered fish sandwiches and turkey-bacon clubs on housemade bread. For a heartier meal, diners can add appetizers, such as jalapeño poppers and teriyaki sirloin tips, or order full dinners of prime rib, served twice a week. Budweiser and Bud Light pour from the taps, but specialty brews claim the bulk of the beer menu, with Alaskan White Ale buddying up to Midnight Sun Sockeye IPA. The bar also lays out a spread of pool tables so groups can engage in friendly competition or build forts out of the cues.
An area mainstay for 51 years, Al's Alaskan Inn now pumps out DJ-helmed tunes from high quality sound systems in both its upstairs and downstairs spaces. Six bars, each with their own theme—such as Area 51, Voodoo Lounge, or The Injustice of Feudalism—stretch across the sprawling confines, while open mics and karaoke keep guests entertained outside of their nearby hotel rooms.
