Best in Princess Lodge

Only so many choices while staying here but this was the best. Had fresh caught salmon with wine. Views were great. Service and food were excellent.

We visited this restaurant for dinner. The service was friendly and attentive. The ambience was busy but still comfortable. The food was good and was served in a timely manner. It is quite busy at this restaurant and it might be a good idea to make reservations for dinner. We had quite a long waiting time.

The best of all the Princess Lodge restaurants in my opinion. Had dinner here both nights of our stay. Great choice and very good service. Highly recommended.

I was staying at the Princess Lodge so I found myself a captive to the restaraunts in the area. For lunch and dinner King Salmon is overpriced for food that is only "fair". ThePrime Rib was ordered rare, and came out medium, tasteless and the consistency of shoe leather. My wife's salmon was dry and terribly overcooked. The following day... More

Had hard to find Copper River King Salmon. Was excellent flavor, but slightly overcooked. Husband had seasonal fresh silver salmon with fettucine. Allowed us to have a salmon taste test of our own making. King won hands down for delicious flavor. We were not staying on the Princess property but had taken the free shuttle down from the Grande Denali... More

We were staying at the lodge for two nights as part of a Princess landtour in which our meals were included in the fare. This plan permitted us to order anything on the menu (one item per course), regardless of the individual price. I had the opportunity to eat one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner here. For breakfast, I... More

Yikes! Tourist trap if ever I've been to one. The staff is nice and they have a nice view but man the food is blah. Not thrilled. My visit in Denali is longer than most, a week, so I imagine they don't expect repeat business. Their uninspired food and average execution tells you that.

This is our second visit to Alaska and this restaurant. I was pleased to find the service and food here are as good as ever. My favorite is the salmon chowder. The atmosphere is very nice and the views are great. Somewhat pricey but very good for breakfast and dinner

This is the place on the lodge site that offers higher end dining. The server we had was great and he did a good job explaining the food to us and also giving recommendations. The salmon chowder that we ate was fantastic with a bice spicy flavout to it and plenty of salmon in it too. We ate scallops.on goat... More

This restaurant was execllent for both breakfast and dinner. Great views down the river and the mountains behind. The staff was welcoming and the food was excellent. A little more pricey but worth it compared to buffets and other pricey options across the road. The reindeer sausage and the blueberry french toast for breakfast...excellent. And the evening fair and fresh... More
