“Best food in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I didn't know food prices would be so much higher in Alaska than in the lower 48, even compared to metropolitan cities like Seattle and San Diego. With that said, some people may find that Jack Sprat prices are expensive when you're traveling in, but they're pretty comparable to other Alaska prices. What makes them really above and beyond is the quality of food you get. We spent much more on other meals in Alaska and this by far was better tasting and better quality. If you're traveling through, this is a great stop and a must eat at if you're staying at the resort. It was so much better than other establishments in the area, we ate here 3 times in our 4 day stay. The menu is limited, but everything was really good.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The food was quite good, if a little pricey. I samples tapas and a very good butternut squash soup! All were very good!

“Somewhat mixed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

The service was excellent and the atmosphere the same. Unfortunately the salmon we were warned was only served rare actually came to us well done and the halibut my husband ordered was down right dry. Perhaps we were there on the chef's day off. However, anyone who can make a raw vegan cheesecake fluffy is all right with me.

“Great ambience and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

This restaurant did not look like much from the outside but once we entered the ambience, friendliness of the staff and cozy decor won us over. My husband had the halibut with penne pasta special and it was excellent. The steak in a red wine reduction was perfectly seasoned and seared. We both enjoyed the olive chocolate cake with a side of vanilla ice creme delicious. We loved the meal and the staff I would certainly recommend eating here.

“A very enjoyable dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Jack Sprat is a very nice restaurant less a mile from The Hotel Alyeska. The rusty exterior building is perfectly for this ski resort town. Fresh flower and grass were on each table. The menu was simple and short, but the food was delicious, and looked great! They use all fresh local ingredients. The mushroom soup was the best that I ever had. I had halibut with wild mushroom. My husband had curry vegetable add on Kodiak scallop. It was a very enjoyable dinner. The day we arrived at Girdwood was the last day of Fungi Festival. I was sorry that we were too late to try some mushrooms during the Festival, but this dinner gave me a chance to taste the local mushrooms. I was so happy!
