This lodge is real Alaska. The restaurant and bar are simply wonderful. The food is average but the atmosphere makes up for average food. Come and take a trip back to the past. The owners can also assist with information on the area and the super drive out the Steese Highweay where moose viewing is at its best in the... More

This lodge is spelled wrong as listed here - it's actually Chatanika Lodge. Everyone has written about the restaurant but I would like to comment on the lodge. I went there to see the lodge and what they had to offer for consideration for a future visit. You enter through the restaurant and walk to the back where there is... More

Had a delicious fish 'n' chips meal while enjoying the colorful, rustic surroundings and chatting with local folks at the counter. This is definitely a place worth seeing; bring your camera and be sure to staple a... More

Decided to stop here on my last morning in the area. Had a most enjoyable time talking with one of the owners, Shirley, and a couple of other local folks at the counter. We talked over breakfast, which consisted of a *very* generous serving of french toast and bacon. Be sure to bring your camera. The year-round Christmas decorations, including... More

The Chatinika Lodge is about 28 miles northeast of Fairbanks on the Steese Highway, about 18 miles east of Fox. Road is paved entire distance. My touring family group of nine from Michigan stopped here on July 1st, 2006 while sightseeing. We had seen and heard mixed reviews but were glad we went. First of all the atmosphere was great,...
