This is entertaining for the older crowd. My husband and I enjoyed the food and desert. It was very good if you can get past the idea of having a dozen people touching your plate as they pass it back and forth to fill it up. We were both grossed out by it so it kind of ruined it for... More

Wasn't sure how good this would be but we were pleasantly surprised. Food was plentiful and great tasting. The show was funny and interactive. So glad we went! Good family night out in Denali

Family style dinner and show. The waitstaff are the actors and actresses in the show. The play is about how Denali came to be. It makes for a fun time for all ages. The diner of salad, ribs, salmon, corn potatoes and baked beans is very good. I particularly enjoyed the ribs. The berry crumble was a good desert. Everything... More

Meal was good and salmon was great. Wait staff was sassy and made for an interactive experience. You are served "boarding house" style (shared serving of food) and sit on benches rather than chairs, so be aware. Added to the ambiance. Theatre group got some of the audience involved a real bonus. Well worth the trip

I see that people have given mixed reviews and can understand why. The atmosphere is rowdy and very rustic. If you are an outdoors type and up for being a bit silly, you will like this. If not then you would be better off to go a different direction. I do think they need to scale down the story line... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the good quality show. It wasn't too long, very clever and I am still reciting some of the lines. The food was standard dinner theatre fare but the interactive nature of the show kept things moving

Used the Alaska TourSaver BOGO coupon for this and felt we got an outstanding deal. As other reviewers have said, the actors/servers are very talented and work very hard to make sure you're enjoying yourself. Unfortunately for us, there was a guy at our table that really had not come to have a good time and spent the majority of... More

Do this. Family style dining.. You're at a long table, somewhat crowded bench seat, food is in buckets, pans on the table, you pass your plate and someone puts food on it. Scrape bones, etc into a pot when done. The food was surprisingly, very good, plentiful. Ribs, Salmon, corn, beans and berry cobbler. At first, I was a bit... More

The show was corny, but the singers were quite talented. We enjoyed the music, and the food was better than I expected. Finding our shuttle to leave was a little hectic, but we enjoyed the evening overall.

My husband, two teenagers, and I went to the Denali Parks Resorts Alaska Cabin Nite dinner Theater in June 2013. The food was very good consisting of all-you-can-eat BBQ ribs, Salmon in dill sauce, baked beans, corn, homemade rolls, salad, and roasted potatoes. I especially like the salmon in dill sauce. The show was well done and fun for the... More
