There’s pop music playing over the speakers, professional sports on the flat screens and more than a dozen local beers on tap: Welcome to Baked Alaska Alehouse.
Glenn Square’s newest restaurant serves a little of everything — with a few twists. The burgers come with housemade sauces, including spicy chipotle and BBQ. The menu is loaded with choices like fried ravioli, the alpine grove burger (with salami, ham, pepperoni, feta, mozzarella and fresh basil) and the Thai dog (a hot dog wrapped in pizza dough with pineapple, red onion, cilantro, teriyaki, mozzarella and provolone). Burgers and subs start at $7.95; hot dog wraps start at $6.95.
The atmosphere is casual and friendly, and the big, sprawling bar takes up a large part of the floor space. Scenic Alaska wildlife and nature photographs dot the walls, while multiple TVs broadcast hockey matches, UFC fights, basketball, golf and other sports. For dessert, you can order three kinds of fried pastries.
If there’s one thing missing, it’s actual Baked Alaska.
Baked Alaska Alehouse is located at 3048 Mountain View Drive. Open 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Sundays.
