Service in this restaurant is deplorable. The food is mediocre at best. The beef options for dinner were all $30 or more and for an extra $10, you could add the endless salad "bar" to your meal. The salad bar consisted of maybe 10 items. The service was so slow - probably almost as slow as them forgetting to put... More

The breakfast buffet was $20 but with specialty items like reindeer sausage, salmon and made to order omelettes it was worth it.

I would avoid the buffet and order off the menu. The buffet is $20, but menu items are about half of that price.

Very pricey ($20 per person) for the breakfast buffet. Food was average but with good variety so there was something for everybody. They even had reindeer sausage which was a hit with the kids. The service was just mediocre and we never did get a refill on our drinks. The restaurant itself was pretty with high end finishes and a... More

Breakfast here is a great way to start the day at Alyeska. The buffet is a must to stow away some calories for an adventurous day of hiking. My favorite was the smoked salmon omelet at the omelet bar. There were lots of other great selections (reindeer sausage for one) and the quality was always good!

We usually go here for breakfast only so don't know anything about the other meals served. I get the eggs benedict and they have always been served perfect. My husband like omelets and his has always been a winner as well.
