Our tour guide said the halibut sandwiches were really good, and she was right. Wish I lived here so I could enjoy them more often. White Spot is a classic local greasy spoon with lots of great food.

Small, family run cafe in the centre of Anchorage. Great breakfasts (especially the reindeer sausages), very good halibut sandwiches. Has become a regular haunt on fishing trips to Alaska

Open kitchen with counter. Counter, tables, booths and back bar. Halibut sandwich really good. Very large, crispy panko coating, dressed with American cheese, shredded lettuce, tomatoe, mayo. Coleslaw or fries. $16 Cheeseburger was average. Very friendly service by Jasmine

We always take our guests here for lunch and they really enjoy the halibut sandwich. They serve other types of foods but I've never tried anything else. The halibut is breaded and deep fried and always tasty. It's a small place on the corner of...More
