Seems the only other options in Denali are pizza, burgers, subway or similar so this was a much better option for dinner. The decor is all wood paneling and none of the plates match, the waiter has a hole in the back of his jeans but he's really friendly. The food however is very tasty. I had a cold berry... More

Far away from most of civilization you'll find this gem near Denali National Park. Let's face it; most eateries in or near National Parks are not usually top of the line restaurants. 229 Parks is definitely the exception. The food we were served rivaled (or "rivalled" if you're British) that of a 5 star Michelin restaurant: delicious and creative. The... More

We had dinner in 229 Parks while staying at the Denali NP. We fiund this restaurant excellent. The food was very good: we had beef tenderloin, halibut in a broth and a chocolate dessert. It was very busy and rightfully. The service is good as well.

Very extensive menu. Very outstanding and unique food. Love the farm/ ocean to table concept. Every bite was delicious. It was a lovely, sunny and warm and all the windows were shut so it was stuffy- which we quickly remedied by opening the windows near us. The service was outstanding ! The prices were in line with the similar quality... More

Came here with my family on our last night together in Alaska. Great food, and honestly it felt like the sort of cozy restaurant you find in small towns in New England- certainly the same ambiance. Definitely worth an evening though reserving in advance definitely is advised!

... Then this is the place to eat. Party of six, we each had a different entree. Mrs. frsbdg had the king crab rolled in fresh pasta; I had the halibut. Both were excellent. Others in our party had the lamb and filet and a couple other items and everything was great. The ice cream sandwich for dessert was also... More

Very good food uniquely prepared. Fresh ingredients, locally harvested! For some reason the service to our table was slow, but I think it was uniquely so. It was a pleasant place to relax and enjoy the good food!

We fully expected this Alaska vacation would be about the sights and not the tastes, so we dialed down our culinary expectations. Were we wrong! The trip delivered tasty discoveries from north to south, and none better than dinner at 229, located just minutes from the entrance to Denali National Park and from lodging in McKinley and Healy. Food is... More

We enjoyed our dinner at 229 Parks - the food was excellent and fresh (farm to table). The waitstaff was very professional and courteous. My husband's salmon with crispy prosciutto was the best meal of our 2-week trip; my lamb was a close second. Make reservations!

Creative and locally sourced food. Unique spin on classics as dinner options. Had a long menu of options. Great service and rustic and chilled atmosphere. Can't fault this place. Shocked to find such a great restaurant in such a remote location.
