Anchorage has a winner – The Varsity Sports Grill at the Alaska Airlines Center on the University of Alaska Anchorage campus. If you’re looking for a quick lunch, a meal out on the town or an after-work cocktail, The Varsity is THE place to be.
Situated above the arena, the atmosphere is light, upbeat and contemporary, with a variety of comfortable seating options, including seating along a wall of windows that look directly out to the games and activities happening on the floor below. Diners can enjoy a fabulous meal while experiencing live university sporting events or watching favorite teams on widescreen TVs. The performance kitchen gives NMS chefs a chance to demonstrate their skills in full view of guests – helping to build the anticipation of the food experience to follow. In the summer months, the completely covered dining patio offers a spectacular view of the Chugach Mountains. The Varsity accommodates special events, too, both inside and on the deck.
From wood-fired pizza and handcrafted microbrews to fresh seafood entrees and aromatic wines, the menu at The Varsity makes it tough to choose. Led by the NMS food services team of Executive Chef and General Manager Matt Little Dog, Marketing Manager Kari Sellers and Area Manager Scott Evers, The Varsity Sports Grill delivers a quality dining experience that leaves guests looking forward to their next visit.
The next time friends elicit feedback on a great local restaurant in Anchorage, send them to The Varsity. Smoked salmon seafood chowder, spicy Asian hog wings and a to-die-for Stilton and fig jam pizza are just a few of the mouthwatering specialties that await them. They’ll be greeted warmly on their arrival and receive pleasant, knowledgeable service from Varsity wait staff throughout their meal. It’s a recommendation they’ll appreciate and one you’ll
be proud to give.
