We actually ate here for dinner and breakfast! Fantastic restaurant hidden in the small town of McCarthy. Don't miss it if you are in the area!

After a 8 hours of exploring Kennicott and the Root Glacier this was a much preferred option to returning to our tent-site and boiling water for noodles.
McCarthy is as backcountry as civilization can get, but the Potatohead would be right at home in downtown Anchorage. Trendy atmosphere, great beer selection and menu options and a friendly staff. Well done.

This place was super yummy! The fries were delicious (SO delicious) - and I probably set a record time for finishing my order of spudniks. Why doesn't everyone put sausage gravy on French fries?? So delicious!

As an aside - the portions were a great size, and the prices were very reasonable. You could say that they were reasonable for "Alaska prices" but I actually think they were reasonable for ANYWHERE. Would definitely recommend checking this place out when you are in McCarthy!

Great beer selection with outdoor seating. This seemed like the local place to hang out. Good food. Especially loved the rosemary and garlic fries.
