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

Took my husband out to eat at his favorite Alaskan restaurant, Jack Sprat's. It is a lovely drive from Anchorage to Girdwood, especially in the fall with the leaves turning. Yes, there was a bit of road construction, but the destination was worth it. I love that there are reservations ( I wouldn't try to come without one). This is... More

Good atmosphere, friendly staff & great food. We both had steak which tasted wonderful & was beautifully cooked, soup was good as was the berry pudding. Struggled with the portions which were huge and finished with a great latte. Highly recommend this restaurant. It is not a big place & is obviously popular so unless you go early you may... More

It was a nice place to eat. The lamb chops that I had were delicious, the fish that my husband had was done in too much sauce. All in all, nice evening.

We stopped here at the end of the day without a reservation which obviously we should have made. It is not a large place and is very popular. There are not many places to eat in the area outside of the hotel Alyeska. The staff was really great and sat our family of 5 at the bar which is really... More

Every time I visit Girdwood I try to make it to Jack Sprats; their Sunday brunch is my favorite. They have really fresh ingredients and make it easy to make healthy choices; but make no mistake - their food is delicious! Their sweet potato fries actually make it worth the drive alone! They are usually quite busy, but their servers... More

Try their appetizers like Tapas and you will enjoy the taste and variety. Cipino was excellent. Adequate beer and wine list to go with the food.

Rave reviews abound, but it's a small restaurant and bike tour groups and the like take up big tables. We didn't eat there, but it is a pricey linen napkin place. A bit loud when crowded. We can't wait to return off season. If you go in summer, definitely make a reservation, the earlier the better. We came at 8.30... More

Family of four - we eat only fish and vegetable - the setting of this restaurant was charming and the food fresh, local and delicious. We enjoyed our Girdwood visit and loved our Jack Sprat dinner..
