Top 10 restaurants in Nome, United States

April 15, 2018 Moriah Teneyck

Sitting on the Seward Peninsula, along the Bering Sea, the city of Nome was born after the "Three Lucky Swedes" found gold in 1898. The gold boom brought thousands of settlers to Nome, which soon grew from frontier town to small city. In 1925, a blizzard prevented medical supplies from reaching Nome, which was suffering from a diphtheria epidemic. A relay of sled dog teams struggled through the snow to reach the city, an epic journey that was the inspiration for the annual Iditarod Dog Race.

Pingo Bakery-Seafood House

Reviewed By bornin42 - newyork

This tiny restaurant and bakery serves seasonal local seafood fresh out of the water and beautifully prepared. We feasted on red king crab legs, red salmon chowder and red salmon fillet in a subtle and delicious miso broth. They don't serve alcohol, but there are plenty of bars in Nome for a drink before or after, so don't let that deter you. Go early for dinner, because they close at 8:00 pm. On your way out, pick up some of their excellent pastries for breakfast the next morning.

Bering Tea Co.

This is the kind of place Nome needs more of - some place nice without smoke and worn-out-ness. Its cozy with several cute tables and good coffee and baked goods.

I lived in Nome for a few years. This is by far the best place for a cup of coffee or a latte. But they've been open only sporadically. If they're open, go for it. If not, best bet is to make coffee at home.

The cuisines range from delicious Italian to Japanese sushi all the way to Korean! All of this with excellent service. Mr. James Bond, our waiter every night, was delightful and efficient.

Polar Cafe

Reviewed By micyer - Dripping Springs, Texas

If you have been to Alaska on a cruise ship, don't pretend to have seen the "real thing". If you want to see the real deal, you have to come to Nome and eat at a place like this. Miners and fishermen talk about what goes on in their boats, or the challenge of remote location mining. Here, you get a great breakfast, with great service and a taste of the real Alaska. If you get to Alaska, come to Nome and see how the natives live. It will change your perspective on this great state and on the hearty brand of people who live here. Nome is home to the ididerod race, so it's a great reason to visit.

Kotzebue is not a place for a cheap meal. The portions were big and it lasted for 2 meals but cost was high. Nice view of water from our table.

Safety Roadhouse

Reviewed By chdye89 - Wasilla, Alaska

The Safety Roadhouse is 22 miles east of Nome on the only road out on the Safety spit. Normally open during the summer months, it's open during the Iditarod in March for snowmachines and mushers alike. It's more of an icon than a restaurant or bar. You go here to say you've been there!

The Bering Sea Sushi Bar & Grill

Reviewed By Canadiatravelgoddess - Canada

Restaurant interior is nice probably the most fancy restaurant in Nome. However the waitress was always screaming in an Asian language to the chef and completely forgot to bring my partner's meal. When the halibut came it was overcooked and tasted like it was frozen not fresh and the mash potatoes were bad and tasted like they were out of a bag.

The food is consistently good. We like to get their burgers, sandwiches, and fried rice. Their spicy chicken and seaweed salad are great. Husky is Nome's cleanest restaurant, and they have the best and friendliest service in town.

Board of Trade Saloon

Reviewed By hatlad

This saloon is 1) very much a saloon, 2) right on Front Street so can't miss it, and 3) you won't want to miss it just for the history. The decor etc is very much barroom feel, etc. But, supposedly it's the oldest saloon in the state of Alaska or Nome (or both). So just for the history of it, a visit to this place for a beer is a MUST if in the city of Nome.
