Eating out with the locals

Great place and excellent burgers and large salads! We really enjoy the friendly atmosphere and decor, makes you feel right at home. My husband is a burger snob and he loves the burgers here, excellent beef. Salads are my faves and they serve delicious big fresh ones. We will definitely be back!

We had gotten tired of Hotel food and took a late night drive to find something to eat in Girdwood. We saw the lights on so we went in and were not disappointed. It was pizza and beer for us. There was a mixture of people, families and kids all having a good time. The bar was a kick with... More

waitresses just don't care . took forever to get menu and way over an hour for a burger. it is almost like a bar with a pool table in the middle of the dining area. it might be ok if you are going for drinks at night but definitely not for the food.

Poorest service ever. Why wait an hour for a rubbery $15 burger? It's ok for a beer......Skip this one and I did you a favor.

Had a chance to visit with friends and this place was simple but really fun. Loads of animal heads and stuffed figures on the walls, and some oldies but goodies playing on the tune-box. The blackened Haddock was incredible - white, light, flaky, delicate, really very good, and homemade chips are always winners. The others had great sandwiches as well... More

I will say first, LOVE the food. The pizza is yummy, the caribou burger is delicious, it's all really good. It's also crazy expensive for what you get. Lunch + a soda is roughly $20 a person. Dinner and any frills is far more. You seat yourself.... So you wonder around like a lost soul looking for a table. And... More

We were on our way back to Anchorage from Seward and figured we'd stop to get a late lunch/early dinner. This place was pretty crowded and I usually take that as a good sign. Walking in you are greeted with a really cool atmosphere and you can either sit in a dining area or a bar area and we chose... More

Was in Alyeska for 4 nights. On last night I asked my son what he was in the mood for and without hesitation "chair 5 deep dish pizza sausage and pepperoni" Enough said!

except great food! Our ski trip to Alyeska scheduled a night of pizza and beer for 50 people during our skiing adventure in Alaska. The hosts were fantastic and gracious in handling a hungry hoard of skiers. The pizza was fantastic and well beyond my expectations and the beer selection was more than adequate.... Alaskan Amber is my favorite! If... More

I sat by myself, ordered a burger and a root beer. After the initial service, the plate was taken and a refill?.....no! I sat right next to the bar entrance, the waitress went past me over and over again. I guess they assume I am no longer of value. I have been waiting for over an hour for a refill,... More
