When you're in Alyeska, choices are slim for restaurants much less good food. It was late and we didn't want to drive anywhere so because it was off season, choices were even slim here at the Alyeska resort. The Aurora Bar & Grill was the only place available to us. The environment was warm and comfortable with great chill music... More

The crab gratin and the atmosphere were the best things about our visit. We sat at the bar and the bartender maybe spoke to us three times the entire time we were there. The seafood chowder was pretty bland. Also, a little pricey.

There are many places to eat pizza and drink beer, all of them pretty good, probably. This pizza, here at the Aurora Bar & Grill, the Greek pizza especially, was awesome!

We were starving from walking around the hotel.. We didnt want to eat alot, and there were several choices, however this one was slightly smaller and fewer guests , It had a nice view.. We were waited on immediately and had bloody mary's from the bar, and then we split the tenderloin and dessert.. Just perfect

My husband and I shared a pizza for lunch. It was awesome! They use all fresh ingredients (dough, cheese, etc.) and it was very reasonably priced. Pizza is expensive in Alaska - usually $20+ for a simple cheese pizza. The service was great. My husband is Italian and is very picky about his pizza and he said he would definitely... More

We had a nice Reindeer pizza for lunch here after our tram ride. Service was good and the pizza was tasty, but we were seated at a table next to where the dirty dishes were taken and it was quite noisy. Ask for a table by the window.

Didn't want to wait at Double Musky for a table, so we stayed in at the hotel. Great service, great view, excellent food, nice atmosphere. The clam pasta dish was really, really good!

Hotel location is amazing and there is quite a range of dining options - top end at the top of the mountain gondala ride and cafe style in the Pond. We chose the Aurora because we disn't want to spend $200 on dinner but still wanted something nice. Aurora's Menu has limited range but our food (ravioli and chicken capresee... More

We had an amazing view when we decided to eat in at the restaurant, however, the food did not meet up to expectations. My husband and I both had seafood - he had a salmon salad and I had a salmon pasta. Both fish were pretty tasteless. We would not eat here again, although it was convenient and fast.
