If you're in Girdwood, and looking to eat pizza, this is the place to go. It's very family friendly. The atmosphere is rustic. There are pool tables in the bar side of the restaurant, if you're looking for that. Prices aren't too bad. Not my favorite pizza place, but it is my favorite in Girdwood.

Nothing fancy, just a nice local spot to relax and have good food. Good variety on the menu, and hearty portion sizes.

Food is expensive in AK. That being said, I would gladly pay $17 for a fish sandwich if it tasted like this one every time. Kitschy casual cabin restaurant with antique memorabilia posters all around jut up the road from Alyeska. Worth a stop.

Decent food and good beer. Log cabin atmosphere with lots of local chachkies hanging on the wall. Definitely a locals hangout. Was able to take the free Girdwood shuttle here from Hotel Alyeska.

We ate here twice during our stay and it was good the first time, but not the second time hence the average rating. For girdwood they have decent food for the price, as many girdwood restaurants are very expensive. Seafood in Girdwood is great, but everything else is mediocre. Fruits, vegetables etc are scarce, poor quality or very expensive compared... More

Stopped in for sustenance after an excellent day of skiing and was not disappointed! The burgers are fantastic! And so is the service. It's such a cute eclectic, artsy kind of place and felt warm and cozy. Great menu, expansive beverage selection. You won't be disappointed.
