Lovely food and service

I was at the Overlook recently with a group of friends, and I had a lamb dish appetizer. It was fantastic. We all enjoyed a variety of entrees and we all loved trying each other's food. I have never liked Italian wine, but the server Marcin talked me into it and it was great. I did not expect that... read more

Lovely evening spent here enjoying great food and wine. Waitress was very helpful and knowledgable, although a bit hyper. Food was fantastic and presented wonderfully. Best meal in Denali!

We walked up a bit of a steep path as we were intrigued with the menu at the bottom of the hill, when we reached the top were pleasantly surprised. This wonderful restaurant and amazing food. There were 10 of us and they were able to seat us with the great view. The meal was wonderful and all decided that... More

Many of the food choice locations reminded us of the cruise ship... not this place... thank goodness for a change. Recommend the Yak sliders and the King Crab Fondue. Lots of local brewery beers on tap.

Fantastic place. Great food and service. An additional good thing was the wonderful entertainment. A real find in a touristy place. It's on top of a hill overlooking the park.

we saw the ad in the Denali visitors guide and thought we would give it a try, First of all it was very had to find, We had to call and then ask for directions. We had been hiking and were in baseball caps and hiking shoes. The hostess looked down her noise and ask if we had reservations. That... More

We ate here based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were disappointed. I ordered the salmon, and my husband ordered a black cod special. Both pieces of fish were raw. The service was poor. There was a long delay before we were served our drinks and appetizers, then another delay before the main meal was served. I think our server was... More

Charming atmosphere with rustic light fixtures made out of antlers, and great views over the valley. Service and wine list excellent, and besides great seafood dishes and rack of lamb, we had the best king crab bisque I have ever had in my life. We are in Denali for four nights, so we keep coming back!

Enjoyed this restaurant w nice view and good food. I had scallops w roast pork belly. It was very special and the hit of our visit to Denali. Husband had prosciutto wrapped halibut. It was bland and needed more spice. Good wine selection. Was our best meal in Denali. Good service.
