Foods good most waiters are nice

First place I ate at when I got into town. Waiter was fun and pretty helpful and food was good. Went again another time the male waiter was very rude and I guess he usually works at Sitzmark. Herd other employees complain about him as well but I guess he's worked there for sometime so he's buddy... read more

It's a fine place to eat, but there is much better in Girdwood. Good place to eat if you're there with children and they have a decent bar.

I ate a few meals here while staying at the resort. All of the food I had was very good as well as the service. I had the breakfast pizza one morning. It was huge! Two people could share it for sure. The view is great from here. A good place to stop for breakfast, a sandwich or dinner.

We stayed at the Alyeska Hotel and had drinks here several nights at the bar - great service and selection of wine and Alaskan beers. We had lunch once and it was ok. I had the Wagyu beef burger, had great flavor but was served lukewarm to cold, my daughter had the fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken which was excellent.... More

I am giving a 5 to Aurora because I think it was a great combination of reasonable price and great service and tasty food. I had two pizzas and a burger there, and all of these were a cut above most burgers and pizzas I have had in most other places.

Nice hotel restaurant. Salads were large and fresh. As expected good alaskan beer on the tap. Pizzas were really good and highly recommend.

My husband & I both had the pretzel burgers & french fries. Good burgers but $15 each is a little pricy, but I guess that's resort pricing. Service was very mediocre and they were very slow.

Poor service was the problem. Could barely get waitstaff' attention. Decided not to eat dinner there:(

I'm not usually blown away with hotel restaurants, but since the Pond stopped serving breakfast at 11:00, or closed, or something very confusing we had to go to this other restaurant. I was a little miffed by the huge array of petite chairs, I even asked for a grown up chair but they had none, so I pulled the table... More
