“AWESOME - AS USUAL”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

I've eaten at the "Wishbone" for almost 40 years and it is always good and the service friendly and the price is right. Have seen the family grow, mature, and pass the torch to the next generation to operate. Always a good place to eat!

“This is a real diner”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

This diner could be anywhere in the US with a local hometown atmosphere including hundreds of snapshots of customers.
Serving sizes are smaller than we are used to so order plenty if you are hungry. The malts we had were just OK; the fried chicken was flavorful and juicy, and the burger was excellent. The onion rings were good but not outstanding. Prices seemed average for Anchorage. Our server was pleasant though service was a little slow.

“I liked it!”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

We recently tried the Lucky Wishbone while in Anchorage. The fried chicken, the home made onion rings, and shakes were all extremely good. The staff was very friendly, especially considering how busy the place was.

“Eh? Not my cup of tea.”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Some folks like it, but I find it too greasy. But, what would expect for fried chicken. Good service & a locally owned place.

Reviewed 21 February 2012

this restaurant is another ancient anchorage staple. The chicken here is good but the one time I went I ordered a cheeseburger to go and they forgot the cheese!
