One visit our server's attitude was not great. A bit abrupt in his interaction. Not very customer oriented. Another visit our server was very friendly and helpful. She even smiled when she addressed us. I recommend Themis place. Just hope you don't get the abrupt server.

Not only is the food and view of the court outstanding, the service is some of the best in the city. I come here as often as possible and bring along business associates so as to introduce more people to this great restaurant.

It was good to be able to have a meal and go right downstairs to the game. However they should be to scan our tickets in restaurant so we would not have to go find some to do so.

We like coming here before a University of Alaska sporting event but it seems that they are never sufficiently staffed with waiters. So don't be in a hurry

The staff did a wonderful job in seating the hungry basketball fans! As always the food is great. Only complaint is UAA didn't win and it was too cold it sit outside, and I'm from Anchorage!

Great place. But they have a consistent habit of giving away the table that you reserve calling it a mix up.

Excellent best kept secret for Anchorage. We enjoy the atmosphere before a UAA game or just a quiet dinner. Chase is usually our server ....Hoping to get there for a dinner on their deck when the weather gets nicer.

This place always has consistently great food and service. The atmosphere is pleasant and the food comes out well prepared and delicious. The menu is small, but what they do they do very well. The servers are always outstanding.
