Dinner at Twin Peaks

I couldn't help but feel as if we were walking onto the set of the former TV series "Twin Peaks." At the entrance of this lodge type restaurant, there was a sitting area filled with a "mishmash" of outdated furniture and decor that didn't match. The restaurant had a log cabin feel, a wooden... read more

The place is warm and inviting. Beautiful decor and wonderful views of the river. There is a large outdoor dining deck as well as ample indoor seating. We chose indoor as it was very windy that evening. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Our waiter was friendly, efficient, and knowledgable about the menu. He offered suggestions and answered any questions... More

This is probably one of the best restaurants in the area in regards to both dinner selection and ambiance. We were there with a party of six and all of us ordered different meals. Selections were King Salmon, Halubut, Chicken, Salmon Salad, prime Rib and NY Strip. All of us were very pleased with our dinners. The Apple Crisp and... More

Surpassed only by the service and the lovely dining room decor. Exceptional in the Denali Park area. A favorite for a special dinner with quiet ambiance and interesting view. Be sure to sit by the window so you can see the river. AND, make sure you only have ONE double martini!

Wonderful view and wonderful seating started the visit out great! Dinner was very expensive for quality of food. The cheese crusted halibut was excellent and the crab legs were good. The prime rib was tough and bloody ordered medium well and the steak ordered medium well was rare. Both of the elderly men in our party were, thus, very unhappy... More

We had dinner here one evening and breakfast one morning. The food was very good. I can not comment on pricing as it was included with my cruisetour. The portion sizes were good too as was the service

Very nice breakfast with good brewed coffee ( I make this point because there at Denali Wilderness Lodge, it is the only eating place that actually brews their coffee) Pancakes looked delicious but was in a hurry and they had a nice express option if you were on the run.

for more reasonably priced and good meals, eat here for breakfast or lunch. Food was very good for breakfast but the place was a little crowded, so think ahead if you are traveling that day.

This is the only place my friend and I will eat on our annual train trip to Denali National Park, regardless of where we stay. We are almost always seated and served promptly. This year was no exception. The citrus-infused sockeye salmon at dinner was cooked perfectly and one of the best salmon dishes I've ever had. The apple crisp... More
