Terrible service but good ""eats"" 11/10/2011

Sorry for the lenghty post -- Lunch, 11:20 a.m., 11-10-11 As expected the food was very tasty, prepared in a timely manner & priced reasonably enough. ( I had calamari, my co-worker had the French onion soup.) I'd give 4 stars for the food. more

Good Food, Crap Bartenders 1/11/2011

I like the food. Drinks are overpriced, service mediocre. TRUE STORY: one bartender lady - never seen her before - left me hanging for my first drink of the night for about fifteen minutes, helping several walk-up newcomers before me. So I paid for the drink and didn't leave a tip. So half an hour later I stroll up to buy my cousin a rum & coke for his birthday and the same lady asks ""Why'd you stiff me last time?"". I don't know what hospitality school she learned that from. So I tell her, and she gets mad and says ""FINE!"". She then measures out a small shot of rum with a little shotglass, and intentionally makes me the weakest rum & coke I've ever seen. I buy the drink and leave .50 cents change, and as I walked away she threw the two quarters at the back of my head! In hindsight I should have called the cops for assault and made the owner kiss my A $$ before dropping charges. Haha good food though. more

Quit Whining 5/16/2009

I stumbled onto this page while researching the F. St. Station company history. I have read review after review on this site saying the F. St. Station is an unsafe place to dine. It is a Bar in downtown Anchorage! While the increase in UAA hockey players has lead to some unsavory fits of adolescent violence, this is true of any bar in that area. Anytime a metropolitan area has 6-8 popular drinking spots within walking distance there is bound to be unpreventable problems. As far as blaming the staff, this is just poor judgment. I have been witness to 3 altercations that have resulted there. In one an individual reacted poorly and tried to fight a nearby man who made a comment. The security promptly contained and removed the individual. The other was shook up but handled himself fine. Alcohol was a FACTOR! If you can not hold your own in a bar in Alaska then don't go. The F. St. is no different then any other bar in the area that is afflicted with the same problem. I have witnesses countless fights in bars downtown. Guess how many punches I have received in 7 years of attending these establishment. None. Maybe I'm lucky. Anytime there is a social gathering and different strangers mingle, there is bound to be some altercations. It happens at little league, and it happens at Alaskan bars. The street is an unsafe place to walk, but I bet you continue to walk over them everyday. In closing, Go eat there in the afternoon. They have some of the best food in town year round. But anyone who expects to see a downtown Anchorage pubs best service after 9 p.m. is going to be disappointed. That's just how it is in that area at that time of night. Security does there best to provide service to all and filter out those that are of an unsavory crowd. But beware... It's a bar. Alcohol will be served there, and if you haven't been around inebriated people before, then you probably won't like it. Quit Whining and go get your stitches. Pros: Great Food, Knowledgeable staff, Suicidally Awesome Chili ! Cons: It's a bar downtown more

Still the best food 11/27/2008

Lot of talk lately about bad things going on at F. St. I decided to go see for myself, as I have been away from Anchorage for a few years, and now back to stay. I found the food to still be some of the best around. The service was nothing to complain about either. Food arrived quickly, and was delicious, as I had remembered it from before. I don't know about the nature of the bar later at night, as I was there in the afternoon, and early evening on the few times I was there. I have no complaints at all. I tend to think some of the stories have been embellished as time goes by, and maybe people should hear the other side of the story before making a decision. Or stop by and see for yourself. Maybe the reports about staying away late at night or correct. So go there in the afternoon or early evening, and decide for yourself. I know that I'll continue to go there to enjoy the food. Pros: great food, nice atmosphere, excellent daily specials Cons: could use more room to dine at. limited table space. more

Horrible Place To Eat, Expensive, EXTREMELY POOR SERVICE 11/17/2008

Horrible food - small portions & I got sick right after leaving this place. Literally blew chow as I walked down the street. The health depart ment should be called. Pros: Close Location Cons: Food, RUDE Service, Rowdy crowd, expensive, kitchen cleanliness more

Terrible Customer Service at F St. Station! 10/14/2008

I am a pilot and have stopped going to F Street Station. Their staff are rude, pretending to be overworked while lazily chatting among themselves. Terrible service! Pros: There are is nothing positive to say. Cons: Terrible staff. Treats the customer like dirt. more

Avoid 10/13/2008

A real crappy establishment with subpar management and horrible service. Waitresses have attitudes and bouncers can't keep control of the place. A hazard and security risk to all visitors. I would rather spend my evening at wafle house. more

F Street Station 9/26/2008

?tferg99? said: ""I have never understood why the pilots hang out there"" Pros: great food! Can't get lost going back to Hilton Cons: Hostile, aggressively violent clientele and wait staff -owner knows, doesn't apparently care more

Aviod unless you want to be smacked by one of the hired help. 9/25/2008

Until recently the service has been pretty good. There has been a definite change in the attitude of both the staff and management. I won't be going there anytime soon. Make sure you travel in packs. Pros: Within crawling distance of the Hilton. Cons: You might get slapped by someone who works there. And the boss doesn't care! more

Avoid it 9/25/2008

There's a reason you don't see many locals there. I am one, and I've been in there three times in eight years. That was plenty. F Street has always had an unfriendly atmosphere (and reputation), our friends were asked to leave once because they had a child with them, at lunchtime. The best word I can think of to describe the servers is hostile, and the service is not good at best. I have never understood why the pilots hang out there, there are many better places to have a beer in Anchorage, frankly this one is awful. I am giving it one star because zero is not an option. Pros: The heater works. Cons: Everything else more

Employees only like tough locals 9/25/2008

Dangerous place at night. They seem to cater to the Meth crowd. The staff is as unfriendly as the night patrons. This place used to be a good hangout, but now you are better off spending your money at any one of the other bars in town. Pros: food and beer Cons: dangerous more

Dangerous, hostile to visitors 9/25/2008

I've been going to F Street Station for the last five years and until recently it has been a nice, welcoming watering hole for both locals and out-of-towners. However, the service has declined, the staff is at best indifferent but more often openly hostile to non-locals, and management supports bar-fighting punks rather than maintaining a nice, welcome atmosphere. The place has become dangerous with local hockey-punks openly picking fights with non-locals and their behavior is defended by the wait-staff. Local police seem to ignore the problem. Certainly the place is now too dangerous for the average person; strongly recommend you avoid F Street on your visit to the Anchorage central business district. Cons: Dangerous to visitors more

Be Careful... 9/24/2008

Use extreme caution if visiting the F Street at night. While it has enjoyed a long standing rep as THE place for local and transiting airline pilots, it's recently begun a downward spiral by catering to a young and rough crowd looking for fights and trouble. Definitely not recommended for anyone who is uncomfortable with drunks looking for trouble. The staff is rude and openly hostile to non locals...so, while the fish is okay, there are plenty of other great places to get a taste of Anchorage without interacting with folks who don't welcome you. Used to be a great place...now....not worth it. Pros: decent fish, good location Cons: rude staff welcomes bad clientele more

Go Early 3/29/2008

This food at this place is really, really good. Certainly the best pub food I have ever had. Some items were simply the best ever. I have eaten everything on the menu at least twice. There are a broad variety of choices. Steak to pasta to clams to sandwiches to salads and fresh oysters, all are super. When you get done eating your way through the menu there are daily specials to try and a rotating choice of soup. The specials usually feature fresh fish of some kind, always excellent. I like to sit at the counter by the kitchen and watch the cooks, well, cook. When there is a lull one of the cooks will take your order and get it started. Wait staff help with the wine and beer. I am told a chef named Carlo is the genius behind the grub. There is a Sunday brunch featuring Eggs Benedict. That's the only item I found to be average. Lot?s of folks rave about them. To me they are just Eggs B, good but nothing special. Everything else? Well, I think you get the idea. I like this place. It does fill up quickly and many people go just for drinks, conversation and free cheese and crackers (for display only). Eat first, drink later, that?s my advice. Pros: Food Cons: Get's crowded early more

Super 7/27/2005

If you are looking for great food, full menu, reasonable prices, this is the place to visit. The staff atmosphere is very friendly. Service is No. 1. Pros: Attractive tenders, attractive waitresses, great dining Cons: At times, crowded., parking more

Size doesn't matter 1/16/2003

Nice bar but pretty small. The place fills up quick so you have to get there early. Good place to get a drink and talk with friends if you can find a place to sit. more
