Hi -
We are about to spend 10 days in Alaska for the first time. I have done some reading and would love input and suggestions on some dining options. We love local, regional dining experiences, high, low, dives and shacks welcome. Except for Talkeetna, we are two nights in each place.

Some thoughts so far:

Anchorage
Simon & Seaforts or Jenn's for our first night?
Sack's or Spennard Roadhouse or Gwennie's for our second night? (I know, all very different)
Reindeer dogs at the hot dog stand

Talkeetna
Lunch at Talkeetna Road House
Dinner at West Rib

Any suggestions please for a great local place to stop for lunch on our way back to Anchorage? In Palmer perhaps? We'll be in a car.

Seward
Lunch at Smoke Shack Train Wreck
Dinner at Salmon Bake
Need another dinner - Ray's? Chinooks? Something else?

Drive from Seward to Homer
Would love lunch suggestions as we'll be doing this drive in both directions.

Homer

Too high end? Just want some fresh halibut!

Girdwood

Which one? Drinks/apps at Jack Spratt and dinner at Alyeska?

I really appreciate any suggestions, additions, deletions. I haven't posted in years so if I'm doing this wrong, please forgive me!

Many thanks.
