A great meal usually means not only great food, good pricing, and a nice variety of choices, but also a nice atmosphere and hopefully a stunning view. Jack Sprat has all of these plus a friendly wait-staff. This has long been a "must go" place in Girdwood, and deservedly so.

My partner is a vegetarian and I'm not, so this place was perfect for both of us. We both had one of the best meals in recent memory. The staff is very friendly and the service is top notch. Be sure to make a reservation! And save room for dessert!

On Tuesday were came down from Anchorage to try it and it was closed.. Really.. So please check and call to be sure... More

Excellent food, well prepared. We had a hummus appetizer which was very good. Then shared the baked cavatelli. The flavors on both dishes were excellent. No desert on this trip.

We live in Girdwood, and this is one of the highlights of living here. The menu is nothing short of amazing. I try to branch out when I go, but the sweet potato fries and the crack they put in the aoli keeps me from trying anything else. Everything on their dinner menu is amazing from the bimbumbap to the... More

Four of us ate here and the three that got the fish specials were very happy with their choices. The cod and salmon were perfectly prepared, although at six ounces, a little small. The fourth person had chippino from the menu and described it as not a classic fish soup, but separately cooked fish added to an existing pasta sauce.... More

For a small town this is a good choice, there aren't too many options on the menu and there aren't too many seats. For the price and reputation the dining atmosphere does not match. If you want to sit outside and enjoy the deck, expect to hear employees dogs barking non stop, I ate here twice in a three week... More
