King Crab Cake Sandwich is Awesome!

Spent the weekend in Denali Park and ate two meals at the Base Camp. Prime Rib sandwich was passable, but their King Crab Cake sandwich was just great. Great Alaskan brews on tap, I would recommend the Alaskan White myself. Great place to pay reasonable prices for good food. Views out the... read more

Spent the weekend in Denali Park and ate two meals at the Base Camp. Prime Rib sandwich was passable, but their King Crab Cake sandwich was just great. Great Alaskan brews on tap, I would recommend the Alaskan White myself. Great place to pay reasonable prices for good food. Views out the window are awesome too.

Located on the grounds of the Denali Princess Lodge with a great view of the Alaskan landscape, we enjoyed sharing the delicious Seafood Nachos. Also tasty were the Blackened Salmon Tacos and the Crab Cake Burger.

We ate here twice. The steak was not so great but the seafood nachos were terrific. The view from the deck made up for so-so items.

Boy, was I lucky in ordering the prime rib sandwich. It was to-die-for delicious. The meat was tender and juicy and the chiabata bun was just perfect. My husband was back in the room not feeling well so I took him an order of the prime rib sandwich and he agreed that it was superb. One of our party ordered... More

The best thing about this facility was the view on the deck. The food was just so so and the service blah. Our bus driver raved about their Mac n cheese and it was average at best. Would not recommend at all

This place was so noisy it sounded like a riot when you walked in and the noise never let up. The noise carried from the kitchen where they prepared food and the waiters banging the dishes in an open area. So they crank up the music to cover the noise and everyone has to yell to be heard when they... More

This spot was connected to a larger, fancier restaurant (King Salmon) on the Princess Wilderness Lodge site. It had an equally nice view out the back windows. It was pricey too, but not as bad. Our server, Marie, was friendly and very helpful. My husband and I split the (not at all spicy) seafood nachos. My son had the portablello... 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

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 cared about taking care of... 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
