Good Service, Great Atmosphere

After a quick trip into Girdwood to see Alyeska, we stopped in at Chair 5 to fill our hungry bellies. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and we didn't have to wait long for service and for our orders to be taken. We sat in the bar area and the decorations/music were fun and cozy. I ordered a... read more

Had to write about this place. We were considering a more pricey establishment but they were full. GOOD news! Best service we've had on this vacation and the mandarin chicken salad was so good. The bread was baked in house and the perfect flavor to go with the salad. My daughter had the elk burger and we both had wine.... More

$32 for a plate of 4 pieces of fried Halibut on top of french fries blew my mind. Pizza was good and not too bad $22 for a medium classic Italian style. Decor and atmosphere is pretty basic and reminds me of the bars we ate at in northern Wisconsin growing up as a kid. You should eat at a... More

Unlike many overpriced restaurants in the area, this one delivers the goods. Good burgers, nice salmon sub, friendly service. Good selection of brews. I'd return to this one, for sure

Basic pizza, pasta kinda place. A bit hectic and not too concerned about the face shown to the tourists. Seems like a locals place.

Friend and I went for lunch and was greeted by very friendly staff. She had a salad and I had fish tacos (yummy). Like everywhere else in the Girdwood area, a bit pricey.

Good decent food, nothing fancy. Nice atmosphere, family style restaurant. The servers do their best but I think the kitchen can't follow when it is busy. The restaurant and the restrooms both are very clean.

Good Bar Food/Après Ski Food. There are very few places to eat in Girdwood, but this fits the bill. Portions were good-sized and tasty. Bar had a good selection. Prices are within AK standards - a bit high - but reasonable. Staff was courteous and service was timely. I would/will go again.
