The Pond Cafe is the only good place to eat at the Alyeska. Almost every day during our stay we chose the buffet instead of a la carte.

Before leaving Alyeska we had breakfast here. Our waiter was terrific. We ordered off the menu rather than have the buffet. The portions were large and the price fair. The food was well prepared and delicious.
