Mostly up scale bar food with a great selection of Alaska beers. Service was excellent. All seats give you a great view of the lake. There is also a patio, weather permitting.

In the Lakefront Hotel. Good menu selection. Had scallops for dinner and done perfectly (not available every night?). I need to eat gluten free and there was enough for me to enjoy. Breakfast was average and, as is typical, hotel pricing. I'd go for dinner....More

The "granola" was not homemade - regular cereal for $8. Service was slow - took us 4 times requesting to get sugar. Then waiter NEVER returned with bill or to go box. Very strange.
