The meals are simple but very well executed. Great breakfasts with endless coffee. Some interesting twists with a hash brown as a base which sounds weird but works well. Price is reasonable and the restaurant is high enough to clear the killer Alaskan mosquitoes. About 13 mile south of Denalie.

This place was excellent! We order the salmon on pasta and the reindeer sausage with pasta. Both were awesome. The fresh baked bread was delicious too! Restrauant was a bit chilly though.

The menu on their webpage was for last year. So we're not able to have the salmon and carabao we were looking for.

We had dinner at the Perch two times. Both times it was very good. It is a wonderful location. The service is friendly and good. The food is good as well. We had halibut, duck and caribou. All were excellent. Also the desserts were very fine.

Our family was staying in the Carlo creek cabins across the street. The Perch restaurant is a rustic, yet upscale restaurant in the woods. Nice custom art. Our service was excellent and I had the best omelet ever. Pancakes were also incredible. Don't miss having a great experience at the Perch.

We were staying at the cabins and thought we'd have a nice breakfast after checking out since our previous two breakfasts consisted of wolfing down protein bars on the bus into the park. This place was wonderful, great service and delicious food. Can't comment on the view as it was raining and cloudy during our meal but I imagine it... More

Stopped here after leaving Cantwell by happenstance. This place has it all, cozy ambiance, great service, delicious food bordering on gourmet! I was there for breakfast but could not help noticing an enticing wine collection. I sat at a window with a lovely view! They have a great back deck with a view of the mountains! I had coffee and...

When you are driving up you might think you took a wrong turn. Keep going and follow the moose plackards and you will find this restaurant. It is set on a hill (the perch) with a beautiful view of the mountains out the windows. The menu wasn't very extensive, but the food was nicely presented and well prepared. We had... More

This was a good dining option in the Denali area, everyone's food was pretty great and the service was excellent. Would definitely eat here again. Note that for 6 or more you would be well advised to make a reservation ahead of time (same day is probably ok, but it's worth calling ahead).
