Good choice for a reasonable dinner

This restaurant was very busy, since a number of tour buses had dropped off many people to stay at the hotel late that afternoon, like us. We had to wait about 45 minutes to get a table. The food my party ordered was well received by my party of four and the restaurant had very good ambiance. I had... read more

I got a sandwich with very salty chips and my husband got some kind of fish. He liked his but said he's had better. We just thought it was ok, but... More

The wife and I were on a Princess Cruise Tour and were staying our first night at the Denali Princess. They have two full service restaurants on the property literally right next to each other. One, "The King Salmon", seemed more upscale than we were in the mood for so we opted for the "Base Camp Bistro". We're very glad... More

Ordered the Crab mac and cheese for $19. There was not a shred of crab in it. Pointed this out to my server who said he would bring me a side of crab. He returned and said the manager said he could not offer me that. They were short on crab. BAD business. Would never eat here again. If they... More

Although a bit windy we braved the terrace with a great view of the rafters as they wound their way through the rapids down below. The Seafood Nacho platter is enough for 4 as an appetizer or lunch for two. Top it with an Alaskan Microbrew and you have a great meal.

This is nice reasonably priced restaurant overlooking the river and Denali National Park. Outside seating is spectacular on a good day. Food and service excellent.

Great food, terrific martini, staff very nice, try the blueberry bread pudding. Wow! This is a little more casual than King Salmon for dinner. We went here our last night. So glad we did!
