We had a great time. the food is served family style. We had a great group at the table and a good waitress. We really enjoyed the show and learned a lot about the mountain while we laughed and enjoyed the music

Had a voucher so this evening was free. That may color my review, but I will try to be objective. Food not bad I liked the Salmon and the salad. Your waiters are also the actors in this play about the climbing of Denali. Was it Broadway no, but I did laugh at the puns and bad jokes. All-In-All a... More

This was included in our Princess cruise tour package. I think the price would have been about $70 per person which I think was too high for what was offered in dining and entertainment. Dinner is served family style at long tables. It is a brief play about the first people to reach the summit of Mt. McKinley. I give... More

The theater is located right on the Denali Princess Lodge property. The waiters and waitresses are also the actors and singers. They are very talented and competent at both jobs !! The seating is a little tight. They pack in a lot of people. The one negative drawback is the food. The brisket and salmon were delicious, however, mashed potatoes... More

A fun dining experience. Terrific food served family style with great entertainment. Be sure to arrive early to get a table near the front.

Food was served fast and it was good I loved the family style format. The show was the highlight of the evening – the wait staff was fantastic and the show was very entertaining. Don’t miss this if you go to Princess Lodge Denali

My mom really wanted to go the Music of Denali, so we agreed to go to make her happy. Our expectations were low. You sit at long tables and are served family style. All of the food was delicious especially the beef brisket! Our server, Molly, was very attentive and so sweet and fun. After dinner, the servers became the... More

This was a good way to eat dinner and enjoy a musical show. The show performers double as the waiters. The all-you-can-eat food was average including roast beef, salmon and veggies. The show was above average and was about Mt McKinley. Adult beverages were available for an additional charge. The only downside was that you had to walk through a... More

Had a free evening so we booked this through Holland America. Family style dinner in a theater in the McKinley Chalet resort, easy walk if you're staying there. The servers are the performers so the service is high energy, raucous, and fun. Food's actually pretty good...salad, mashed potatoes, BBQ brisket and salmon, veggies and an apple crisp dessert. A couple... More
