Great food and atmosphere but food takes a while

The food was really good. We had a roasted pepper bisque (great!) and a turkey sandwich (also great) and a pasta with bolognese sauce (sauce was too sweet). Overall though, it was satisfying if a bit pricey. Our server was really good and attentive, but the food was slow to come out (not her... read more

I came in late, and needed to eat something. After 30 minutes, my pizza was warm, not hot. Still quite good, just could have been better. I heard the waitress giving apologies to several tables, not sure for what. With a little training, this can improve.

The restaurant has a nice view of the tram and Chair 7. The service was far beyond expectations for a hotel restaurant. They offer excellent salads, soups and great pizza. If you have a chance add reindeer sausage to the pizza. The beef is excellent quality. Troy did an excellent job and ensured that every part of the meal was... More

Sit at the bar. The bar tender women were OUTSTANDING. They really know how to make a drink. And our food was good too. Great friendly service.

We had a weekend meeting and needed to get in and out of our lunch fairly timely. They were very accommodating to our group and worked with any of our group needs. The menu offered a wide variety for people with different dietary needs.

I had lunch here and had drinks here. Both were good. I wish the menu had a little more variety, but the food I got tasted great. Drinks were surprisingly inexpensive for a ski resort in Alaska. Overall, I definitely recommend it!

We decided to have a nice lunch before going up to the top of the mountain. They had a snack bar up there but we wanted more than a snack. We ordered a beer and a cheese plate, along with a pizza that we could share between the 3 of us. The cheese plate came, no complaints about the cheese,... More

We had lunch here our first day in the hotel before we hiked and it was great. Good Salads and Sandwiches. We also had drinks at the bar which was pleasant. Our last night we had dinner and again our waitress was the same as lunch and very attentive and professional. The view is great, the food and wine were... More
