The Double Musky Inn — Five-Star Dining in Alaska

Clearly I am a girl who likes to eat. So when my dad asked if I wanted to check out Alaska’s only five-star restaurant, I jumped at the chance. The Double Musky Inn, located in Girdwood (about 40 minutes outside of Anchorage), started as a ski bar in 1962. The name comes from a drink the owner Julian Maule used to make: a double Muscatel spritzer.

The Inn itself is adorable though the decor is eclectic. But yet, it works. If you’ve ever lived in Alaska, this makes sense.

Five-star dining in Alaska is a little unique

The menu was also surprising. If you look at it online you’ll realize the cuisine is “Alaskan Cajun.” Curious, yes, but again it works.

We ate the coconut salmon too quickly to get a picture, but it was divine — crunchy, slightly sweet and served with a sweet-and-sour plum sauce. For my entree choice, I followed a friend’s advice and went for the meat. The prime rib special was seriously huge and seriously delicious.

A 20-oz prime rib? Yes please!
