Maybe we just went on the wrong day. The waitress did her best but she was so, so busy. Items were quite expensive and portions were small. It was good, but after reading other reviews, I expected more. My cioppino was quite good, but I've never had such a small portion.

We were at the end of a long excursion day, headed back to the resort and what a find, off the beaten path in Girdwood! The service was fair but the food was exceptional; fare that you would expect to find in a big city's fine dining restaurant.

In the culinary wasteland of Alaska there lies an oasis of deliciousness in the most unsuspecting of places. I've been all over the state from Fairbanks to Ketchikan and Jack Sprat is by far the best dining experience I've had. My dining companions ordered the halibut even after we went fishing and caught and ate our own the day before... More

We were expecting great things from previous reviews but were disappointed. Service that night was slow and our server seemed rather detached with very little enthusiasm. We thought the dishes were way overpriced, though they were all quite good. Duck breast meal portion was very small, bread plate at $6.50 was ridiculous for maybe 4-5 slices of bread. I wanted...

Didn't want leftovers so he suggested getting 3 meals. We all shared them and got a taste of all. Absolutely to die for meals. Presentation was beautiful and the... More

We went for an early dinner arriving just at 5:00 when they opened. They were able to seat us on the porch which was lovely. Quickly though the restaurant filled up so if you want to go, make a reservation. I had the salmon which was grilled on top of the house salad. It was by far the best salmon... More

The expected range of Alaskan food is quite good at this informal, local institution. Service is friendly and accommodating; outdoor seating is particularly pleasant.
