We had friends visiting from LA this weekend, so my husband wanted them to taste the seafood chowder at Alyeska Hotel Aurora Lounge. He had built it up quite a lot, because in the past he's wanted to order a whole bucket of the chowder: he loved it so much. The waitress was warm, friendly, and efficient. But she doesn't... More

The food at the aurora lounge is great;you truly get an Alaskan style menu with fresh salmon and great burgers. I always come here when visiting girdwood, the atmosphere is great and so is the service.

This is the bar in the Alyeska hotel, the food was pretty decent, and the drinks were good. This is a very casual place.

I ate at this restaurant several times while in Alaska. The food was very good. I would have liked to see a few more selections, and I felt that it was a little pricey, but all in all it was very good. The servers were very good! Lots of ambiance. Nice views.
