The food is good, but expensive for what you get. It is a small place, with a few rooms and cabins available for the those wanting to play in the snow. Nice views on the way there and from there.

Really cool, unique atmoshere with an Alice in Wonderland theme inside. My husband & I split a very good, enormous burger on our way up Hatcher Pass on the Harley. Fun, clean family friendly place.

This is a fun, casual atmosphere and the food was delicious! It's also not too expensive and there are a lot of items on the menu so everyone should be able to find something they like. We had a mushroom appetizer that was AWESOME!
