Just reopened by the owners of the 49th state brewery, it's high class really good food and drinks, not as cheap as their other restaurants but worth the difference. Nice view, friendly staff, and great deserts.

The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was really good. The menu is fairly limited and expensive.

Ate here while staying in the cabins and so glad I did. We sat by the window and the view was absolutely amazing. The table setting was beautiful with nice wine glasses. I had the lamb and it was the best I've ever had. The server suggest a glass of Pinot Noir that complement the dish perfectly. He was knowledgable... More

I ate dinner there for my last night in Denali. Since, I was traveling alone my only option was to eat at the bar or outside. I was about to leave after they gave me those options. I didn't understand why I couldn't sit inside, it wasn't crowded. But, it was nice enough, a little chilly and they had heaters... More

We came across The Overlook when looking for a place to hold a small event. My wife had just recently begun prerelease for her first novel, and we wanted to find a place to celebrate with friends. The Overlook was more than accommodating, and the food... Oh, the food was incredible. I had a wagyu burger topped with a fig... More

WOW, What a great surprise! Everything we had was delicious and I would highly recommend. I was hoping for something a little bit better than down the hill but this place has 5 star food and reasonable prices.

The setting is rustic, cabin-like, but the menu shows ambition and ideas. And surprisingly the staff is kind, attentive, and careful in comparison with other Alaskan restaurants. Try the oysters: juicy, tasty! We recommend also King salmon in an original mexican-alaskan interpretation and a surprising burger with figs and goat cheese. We did not expect all this in the middle... More

You wouldn't expect to find a gem like The Overlook in the middle of Denali National Park. The menu is spectacular. Pick one dish from every category and take your time savoring each bite. From simple dishes like cheese plates and marinated olives to more complex pairings like prosciutto wrapped halibut and mustard crusted rack of lamb, you will find... More

Went to the Overlook with my Husband and it was the best culinary experience we have had in Denali. First the restaurant has a very welcoming atmosphere and an outstanding bar with very knowledgeable staff. However, it is the outside patio with the breathtaking views that really shouldn’t be missed. We started with cocktails at the bar which is very... More
