Delightful dining experience in Denali

Excellent cuisine and wine, delightfully cheery atmosphere, and beautiful views in Denali. Can not say enough nice things about the manager, Maritza, who sent an employee to take us up the mountain to the restaurant.

Very disappointing, This is supposed to be one of the finer dining establishments in the Denali National Park area, and it was just so-so. Started out with a cheese plate and noticed a wedge of Colby jack(very disappointing) I was expecting international cheeses. Lamb app tasted like old, similar to a leftover turkey sandwich after thanksgiving but with lamb. Scallop... More

Can not say enough nice things about the manager, Maritza, who sent an employee to take us up the mountain to the restaurant. Have decided to stay at Crows Inn on our next trip to Denali mostly because of this lovely, well run restaurant.

After a vigorous day of rafting in the Nenana River, I made some last minute dinner reservations for 8:30. Not sure if I needed the reservation as over half of the tables were empty. The waiter informed me that they have only been open for 2 days and certain items were not available. Our table ordered the scallops & pork... More

Two of the most enjoyable meals ever. We only had two evenings in Denali, but after the first dinner, we had to come back. The chef and staff have big-city restaurant backgrounds but are living here because they love it. And it shows! A great wine list and lots of variety on the menu. Don't miss the Halibut Cheeks.

The Overlook was an unexpected treat while in Denali. The restaurant is perched on a mountain with views of Denali Park. We sat by the window and were captivated by the beauty. As for the food, it was a pleasant surprise. By this point we had been in Alaska a week and had only been eating burgers and fish n... More

This place is beyond belief. Stayed at there cabins and didn't even know the restaurant was there until I stumbled into it on our last night. We heard music playing and went to check it out. Four hours later we left satisfied and a bit drunk. The bar served craft cocktail and the bartenders really put on a show. I... More

The Overlook was a great experience. I was not expecting such a meal while in Alaska. I had lamb and my husband had prosciutto wrapped halibut. On par with any fine dining restaurant in New York. If you are in Denali, do not miss the Overlook!! I suggest making a reservation.

We wanted to go somewhere nice for my friends birthday and we had heard this was a great place. Every table in the restaurant is nice and we were seated and given drinks right away. Our server Marchin was great. He was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. He answered every question we had about the menu and... More

I went to the Overlook a few nights ago and was blown away with the quality of the food and the high class atmosphere. I've never really gone to any high end restaurants, so I was very excited and had heard only great things. I ordered the Oysters as an appetizer and a rack of lamb for the main course.... More
