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.

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

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.

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
