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 !

My family of 5 enjoyed dinner here during our land portion of our land/cruise tour July 3rd through Royal Caribbean. My steak was bloody even though I ordered it medium but I have to say I have never been treated so apologetically when having to send back my meal. The waitress, bartender and manager all apologized to me. The manager... More

Had lunch and dinner here and have to say it was yummy. The salmon salad was fresh and the pasta was lovely too. Lovely waitresses who were all friendly. If you don't fancy going to far afield then stay and eat at the resort.

A-Bar became our meeting place. There is a great table in front of a large window that we loved. Try the cheese plate. It is phenomenal. We ate burgers there for lunch one day and they were gigantic and delicious. Service is friendly and professional.

It's a pretty standard bar and grill type restaurant. The service was pretty slow and not all that friendly. The food was just ok. The drive there was beautiful however.

My husband and I stayed at alyeska a week ago, and we had at an amazing stay! We ate at several places in this wonderful town, and everything was great from seven G's to sprats, to Sakura... When we planned to dine at the aurora we honestly didn't go in with huge expectations considering it's the hotel restaurant spot... Burgers... More

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.
