Seafood is good. I've been going to Mommao's for a while now, have loved the food and the service. I'm almost apt NOT to go because of the cashier behind the register. Why does she have such an attitude? She obviously treats one customer different then other customers right before your eyes. I'm almost not wanting to go JUST because of that... should be friendly and courteous regardless of gender or ethnicity.
"The best butt in Anchorage".
If you want fast food for lunch go to a fast food chain!
Server was very friendly! Liz took her time to explain the menu and helped me with my decision maker to complete my seafood platter.
With the platter you get 2 Halibut filets cooked the wy you choose, fried, grilled or steamed, and then you get the options of 2 additional items being oysters, clam strips, calamari, shrimp and I believe one other that I can't remember.
With the help of Liz's expertise I chose the oysters and calamari.
The fried oysters, which are not my favorite choice of seafood but I selected due to Liz's reccomendation were wonderfully prepared.
The calamari was fried to perfection. I have tried it in way more expensive restaraunts and usually would have preferred fried rubber bands. There were 4 thick sliced pieces that were cooked tender juicy and delicous.
Then I dove into the halibut and all I kept saying was HAL-IBUT THAT. I forced my wife who refuses to eat fish to taste it. Telling her it tasted like chicken from heaven. She took a small bite and stated she really couldn't taste it so I gave her a 1/4 of a filet. When she was finished I had to wipe the slobber from her face. I then noticed as I was trying to finish that my HAL-IBUT that was getting hotter. It was from my wifes burning stare. After I cleaned her puddle of drool from the table I split the last piece with her.
Liz was great and I guarentee she will remember my name Friday when we return to Anchorge to fly back to Ohio. Liz greeted almost everyone that came through the door by name. I asked if everyone that ate there were usuals and she said "yes just like you". As my wife and I left she said bye to us by name and although 5 hours later and the food has not digested completely I'm excited to eat there again Friday.
Bad lunch experience.
Today I experienced the worst luncheon ever. My co-worker and I decided to go to this resturant. While standing in line trying to decide on lunch we noticed the customer in front of being treated poorly by the worker.
The worker was being extremely rude to the customer. The customer reached for some more ketcup and the worker snatched it away from her. The worker stated, "We charge extra"...
At 1:05pm we finally placed our order. It cost $14.50 for our lunch plus a soda.
We took a step back to allow the other customer to come up and place their orders. We had only one hour for lunch.
After exactly 35 minutes had past and other people had gotten their orders before ours, we finally asked for our money back.
After the worker slams our money down on the table we leave peacefully with no desire to return.
Momma O's is a Halibut Hot Spot!. i cant wait to get back to momma o's! my friends and i have known about this local secret for years. there was a time when i ate here 1-2 times per week, i really miss those days! the staff is very polite and remmembers your name. her clam chowder made fresh daily mmmmmmmm, im thinking of her homemade tatersauce right now. its not a fancy prancy place so, the food isnt goiing to set you back. my grilled cajun halibut filets with fries or rice, and a one trip salad bar is under $15.00. the place has a healthnut/weightlifter following and makes substitutions for fries with steamed rice. i could go on. lets say im 36 and my folks wanted to know where to take me for my birthday, you guessed it! thanks mom and dad!
