Best dining in Denali

Excellent service, both for dinner and breakfast. Fish was very fresh and menu had great variety. Also, lovely views. Wish we ate more meals here.

My husband and I were thrilled to have found this amazing restaurant after a very long day of touring. It was pouring rain the night we decided to go and we were so glad that we braved the bad weather to get there. Our meals of rack of lamb and the king salmon were outstanding and both were cooked exactly... More

Wow, this is a restaurant everyone should check out if you want more than pizza or bar food when visiting Denali. The food was absolutely scrumptious, the setting was cozy with a fabulous view. Be sure to try the creme brulee! It's a hike to get up to the restaurant, but a friendly staff member will give you a ride... More

Excellent food and view. The bartender was a little stand offish at first. We did not have reservations and I would recommend having them. We could not sit in the dining room but were able to order the full menu at the bar. Everything was prepared wonderfully and very tasty. There was a large party ahead of us and our... More

We celebrated our anniversary while on vacation here. Wonderful meal, very professional service and nice setting. Really two steps above anything we'd even seen on our road trip. The Baked Alaska was delicious with moose tracks ice cream and prepared very well plus it was a fun treat. Our entree's were delicious, focaccia bread wonderful.

I was in Denali on vacation with my family in the end of July, many things stood out, First of all the food was great. At once a posh dining experience accompanied by a comfortable atmosphere. We could tell the manager Marzina really cares about guests' dining experience. I had the King Salmon, cooked to perfection and full of flavor... More

This place has the chic vibe, the perfect views, the knowledgeable staff, excellent wine choices and tasty little tidbits to challenge your palate. Their prices are also a good bit high for these benefits. Not much competition in the area for such pleasures, so the wallet vs. palate war is really up to the customer. If the wallet cedes, the...

This restaurant was some of the finest food that I have had anywhere. Great restaurants do not seem to be plentiful in Alaska backcountry, but this one was special. So good we ate here twice and we would have been happy to eat here more if we were in the area longer. Creative menu, excellent preparation and a staff that... More

We were staying across the street at the Princess Lodge. This place is a gem among mediocre options. This is touresty area that is only open during the summer tourist months. The restaurant is worth the steep climb up the path. The view is amazing and they have a nice deck w/ outside seating. Be sure to bring your sunglasses... More
