We really wanted to try this place.. The first time we stopped through we were driving up from Seward and I guess they were in between service and we were told they only had fries and beer.. 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

We were surprised and thrilled to find such a charming restaurant with excellent food and service in Girdwood, Alaska. We chose to spend one night in Girdwood, Ak on our way down to Whittier for a glacier cruise. WOW! Great place to stay, sorry we only booked one night there. It happened to be our wedding anniversary, so we wanted... More

Our first night in Alaska, we wanted to get a view from the tram and eat dinner in Girdwood. Our B&B host helped us get a table as they were mostly booked. The atmosphere is very eclectic, which I like. Layed back. The building is unique, great windows, plants dangling from an above balcony. The staff was friendly and accommodating.... More

We have eaten at Jack Sprats twice and both times was possibly the best meals we have ever had. From appetizers to dessert every bite was wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
