My husband and I went to the steak night on a Thursday. The service was super friendly and efficient. I had the salmon cakes to start with which were deliciously packed with salmon. The steak was cooked exactly to order with delicious sides. I would definitely recommend this place for good food, good portions, good service and a nice relaxed... More

The buffet breakfast is good, but could be a lot better. The waiting time to get a table can be a bit much also.

This was a very good hotel breakfast buffet with smoked salmon, reindeer sausage, and a great omelet maker.

Ponds cafe is extremely functional. The breakfast menu is priced like most Alaska breakfast. We like the views and the windows; cafe is a bit sparse looking. I ordered the traditional 2 over easy eggs, pancakes, and Reindeer sausage. Service is excellent, and I would return again.

I scanned the buffet food line and wasn't interested however, the coupon would have covered the cost for the breakfast buffet. We ordered from the ala carte menu both mornings. The Food was good and done as requested. The service was variable... More

While we stayed at Alyeska on our ski trip we received coupons granting us credit for $20 breakfast every morning at the Pond Cafe. So of course we used them to eat every morning. The buffet they offer is pricey ($19 per person) but they offered a great selections of rotating foods that always included fruits; hot oatmeal some days... More

Every time I have been here, we have had some issue that makes the experience a disappointment. One time we came and were ignored by the wait staff until we finally left hungry. This last time, the young staff was very friendly and attentive, and our food was good and was served quickly. The brewed coffee was horrible and their... More
