Was in the Denali area for the land portion of the cruise. I'm a T A believer so I always check out our options. We visited here on two nights. We enjoyed both nights but first night was much better. We had the evening special pasta dish with various seafoods with a slight Cajun flair, fabulous salad with apples, cranberries,... More

Had a good variety on menu. Very good. They were close to shutting down for season so were had everything left in kitchen and all good. We cooked some Salmon we had caught on Kenai River on gas grill and they shared some spices and aluminum foil.

About 15 miles of the visitor center. A great breakfast, the best we had in our 2 weeks in Alaska. Highly recommend it. Seems like a local's place. We had the big cinamon bun, but it really wasn't that good. Prices about right for the area.

We stayed at the cabins here so we were able to try the dinner and breakfast they had to offer. Both were very good and quite filling! The portions are quite large and reasonable priced for Alaska. The wait staff was very friendly.

We were staying at the McKinley Creekside cabins and had been told that the on-site restauarant was good, but we were still pleasantly surprised by what we experienced. It's just a small place but very busy, and one can understand why - the chef really did a good job on the food on each occasion we dined. The dinner menu... More

This is a small cafe associated with Mckinley Creekside Cabins...the four rating is for size not quality. We ate here for suppers, breakfasts and box lunches. Suppers were excellent, fish was perfectly cooked, vegetables were california crisp and desserts were very difficult to resist. Breakfast was great...eggs cooked perfectly along with the potatoes. Only 2 1/2 slices of toast, but... More

My husband & I ate dinner here. It was so good we went back for breakfast too! For dinner, he had meatloaf & I had the pot pie. It was unreal! Best dinner we had in a long time. For breakfast, we shared a cinnamon roll, side of bacon & potatoes. Delicious! Servers were great & prices were fair. Great... More

We were staying at the cabins across the road and came here for a late launch. The lunch special was salmon tacos, both my husband and I had them and they were very good. The waitress was very pleasant and also helped us order box lunches for our bus trip into the park the next day. They also had several... More
