Good Meal, Especially After Backpacking Food

This was our first hot meal after spending two days on nothing but backpacking food. So of course it was good! The views from the restaurant are very nice, though the weather was not such that we could really enjoy them. We had a one of the best waitresses I have ever had, she legitimately... read more

Very pretty venue, but extremely loud. The food was just average. Two people in my party of six had the prime rib sandwich, which was very dry and quite overcooked. I had the Denali nachos that have crab and shrimp. Some of the crab was of the fake variety and the shrimp were the microscopic type. I'd sure like to... More

We arrived at Princess lodge late the first night. Too tired to find other restaurant, so tried this place next to our hotel building. I ordered petite size sirloin steak 4oz, it tastes like rubber! Have never had a steak so bad ever. My husband ordered petite size seafood casserole, was pretty good. So we traded the dishes. I could... More

While at the Princess Denali Lodge the first night we ate at Base Camp Bistro. The decor is nice and it is casual, but the food is just average. 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

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 the... 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.
