Great bloody Marys, eggs Benedict, omelets, etc. Watch all of your favorite games in this casual, unurushed and reasonably priced atmosphere. I wasn't expecting to eat, but after I saw the menu and the trays of food coming out from the kitchen I couldn't actual decide not to. Yummy!

A nice place to just enjoy a warm coffee cocktail. The Seafood chowder was a little understated. Fresh ingredients, the right temp and creamy. The overall flavor a little light. Added just a pinch of salt. Solved the issue.

This place was amazing we had a large business group go in demanding a drink the bartenders never heard before but they more than accommodated. I wish I knew all their names, also when they ran out of a certain alcohol and we said we would be back the next night he rode his bike around time to find it... More

Met friends for cocktails & dinner here. All food and service were wonderful and atmosphere is mountain casual. Great place after a long day hiking.

Considering your are in a great hotel, the cost and quantity of good food for breakfast was very good. Plus the view of the cable car and mountain from the restaurant is a bonus.

We ate there twice on our trip to Alaska because the breadsticks were so good. We didn't stay at the hotel but took an excursion that started there. The portions were large and the food tasty. For a mostly empty restaurant, the service was a little slow, but the servers were attentive.

Great food and prices were good too. We stayed at the Hotel Alyeska and this restaurant is inside it.

It is a shame how a rude hostess can spoil a restaurant experience. On our first evening at the Alyeska, after a long flight from Chicago to Anchorage, and a car drive from Anchorage to Girdwood, my daughter, my two grandkids, and myself were ready for a nice and peaceful dinner. Even though we were ready to wait, the hostess... More

Food was excellent, inattentive service kept them from getting a five. Linguine was homemade, Portobello mushrooms sauteed and nicely seasoned. Have no idea where they found fresh clams, but they were among the best.

We ate here tonight. Wait staff not knowledgeable. Very overpriced and value not met. For these prices we should have better service and a better experience.

Thank MChipp
