The food was okay and therefor felt overpriced. We were there at a typical lunch hour and it was not busy at all, that should have been our first sign!

The pizza is is absolutely out of this world! As a native New Yorker I know pizza and the crust is perfect crunchy and soft. The toppings range from traditional to out of the box. I definitely recommend the reindeer sausage pizza as well as the halibut pie. Price is reasonable if you consider the quality and the service was... More

This is a great spot to have lunch or dinner. The pizza was excellent but very expensive. We had elk meat on our pizza which was delicious but the pizza cost $30.

After a long day in Denali Park, Prospector Pizza is a great setting to sit back, relax and enjoy a great pizza. The facility was clean and decorated with area history. The help was friendly and accommodating. We love brick oven pizza, so this is definitely the place to visit on your trip to Denali.

The bruschetta was good but deconstructed. The pizza was very good. Expect local flavors such as elk, crab, etc. it you can build your own as well. Beer selection looked... More

We had a chicken pizza. Our friends had an elk and reindeer meat pizza. Both were great. Very busy place but it holds a lot of people and service was very good.

Great selection of beer too. Our waiter Jeff was very pleasant, helpful, and patient as he had to deal with a couple very... More

One of only a few restaurants in town, the cute looks can deceive. Told waiter we had to make a bus and ordered a pizza. He said we could make the bus. Missed that bus, thanks to the kitchen by 20 minutes! Small pie with a few toppings ran almost $30 with double charges for some toppings despite being on... More

We stopped by to have a drink and ended up staying the evening. They have a great selection of beers and wine. Our bartender, Phillip, was awesome and entertaining! Our friends tried the Elk meatballs and loved them. We moved over to the restaurant and had a super server, Landis. We had the Prospector pizza and it was delicious. Great... More
