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

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

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

We just stopped at the hotel for lunch. We just had some chowder (great), calamari (very good), and the charcuterie (excellent) with some tea and soft drinks. The bill ran about $40 which is pricey but given the quality of the food that surroundings it was worth it. It was a bit weird in that we were the only people... More

Very good food - reasonable prices, decent wine selection warm and happy wait staff. We managed breakfast, lunch and dinner here and were not disappointed at all. Decent bar area for the adults when the kids were gone !
