Bayside Restaurant

There are not too many places to stay in Kotzebue. I found the Bayside to be an excellent place to stay. The room was clean and although not on a par with state-side "excellents" was all you needed. The restaurant downstairs was roomy and offered many items for dining.

Little Louie's

Reviewed By Jake G - Palmer, Alaska

Little Louie's is a busy restaurant located in the heart of Kotzebue. Their menu is quite extensive, serving everything from pizza to Chinese, burgers, sandwiches, chicken, burritos, wings, desserts, snacks (like chips, candy, sodas, etc.) and lots more. Their pizza is what I usually get, as it is large with a really light and fluffy crust. They are a bit stingy on their pizza toppings for the price they charge though. Like most Kotzebue restaurants, they offer delivery if you don't feel like going (or are unable to go) to pick up your order. They are pretty busy, so be prepared to wait up to 45 minutes to get your food if they're really slammed with orders. Staff and service are good, prompt, friendly and helpful. The owner works there regularly and she runs a tight ship! As of late-summer 2017, limited seating is available to sit down and eat, with servers to take care of you. Atmosphere is lacking, as there are no windows and not much in terms of decor. They are open from 10am until midnight (1am in the summer), so they are a good option to get food late (go to Uutuku once Louie's closes).

All in all, they deliver hot, fresh, tasty food for an average price in Kotzebue in a relatively quick timeframe. No complaints!

Nullagvik Restaurant

Reviewed By Arkansastraveler74 - arkansastraveler74

Overall, it was a good dinner. Service was good. If you stay at the hotel you get a 15% off coupon to use at the restaurant. Friday night was prime rib night. It looked good. There is no alcohol any where in the town due to required permits. There are limited eating options so I would recommend you out this one on your list.

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.

I often work until midnight and at that hour, most of the restaurants in Kotzebue are closed. Not Uutuku! They are open until 3am every night (except for major holidays)...and they deliver!

Uutuku ("OO-too-koo") is a small convenience-type store that serves food. They do not provide a place to sit and eat, nor do they provide service. You grab-and-go. Most of their offerings are either Chinese/Asian cuisine and sandwiches/burgers, but they also serve pizza and chicken dishes. I'm a fan of their Teriyaki Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich, as well as their double bacon cheeseburger (all served with fries). Good stuff! The people are pretty nice, orders are made/served/delivered promptly, and prices are average for Kotz. And yeah, their chicken is pretty famous throughout the state if you've had it.

Good place to eat and definitely recommended!
