Great food but not a huge selection on the menu. Nice rustic building at the foot of Mt. Alyeska with great views of the ski resort. A bit pricey but what else would you expect from a resort town in Alaska.

Ordered steamed mussels & clams for appetizer which came with roasted garlic bread. It was served in a hot clay pot with very good flavors in the soup! Cioppino was our main course. Seafood all so fresh - king crab legs, clams, mussels, prawns and fish. All cooked to perfection. Highly recommended. Place gets very busy; reservation recommended.

We received several references from locals to visit this restaurant during our stay at Mt. Aleyska. We were not disappointed. I am a vegetarian and was very pleased with the amount of choices on the menu. My husband, the carnivore, enjoyed a fish special dinner. We both cleaned our plates. I would love to go back again and try brunch,... More

I really do trust what is said on trip advisor, and now I know why Jack Sprat was number one restaurant in Girdwood. I had the rib eye which was cooked to perfection and so tasty. My son had the lamb chops which he said was great. We ate out on the enclosed porch which was very cozy. The restaurant... More

Made reservations based on TA reviews. We had a few minutes to wait before our reservation time, but that was the shortest of the waits during this experience. We were seated in the solarium. the view was OK, the chairs were very hard to scoot in or out once seated, and it felt somewhat confined. Our server dropped off the... More

The service was really great at this restaurant. We ordered a pasta dish that was one of the tastiest on our trip to Alaska. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Girdwood.

Moderately priced menu with many unusual options. Burgers ordered were cooked to perfection. Salads were a very generous potion. Menu & specials were such that we wanted to return and try other offerings. Wait staff are very professional.

It was recommended to us to go for dinner. It was made very pretty like from a culinary chef. My husband tried a salmon dish but it didn't have any veggies so it was ok but not filling. I ordered a dish with shrimp and a curry sauce. It was good but it was a smaller dish and wasn't filling.... More

This intimate restaurant has a cozy atmosphere and the food is prepared very tasty. We left another restaurant to come here and I really wanted Salmon and was told it was not available but might be the next day, we contemplated leaving and coming back. However, the waitress talked to the owner and chef who then came up with a... More
