Relaxing dinner after a long day traveling

We had a nice relaxing dinner after a long day of traveling on the train and bus. Ask your waiter about specials and recommendations. Enjoy the view if you happen to get seTed by the window.

Every now and then my husband and i need to go for that drive 'out of town' and along with that we know we'll be eating out . Yesterday we drove to Talkeetna , Alaska and enjoyed a delicious light (mine was light!) lunch at the Base Camp Bistro. It's not our first time and it won't be our last.... More

Take a seat out on the balcony ,weather permitting. Good place for chat and watching the rafters go by and good view of the valley. Seafood Nachos are a great appetizer for 4 or a meal for two with some local beer.

We stayed at the hotel about a week ago, and decided to eat here as opposed to the other more 'upscale' restaurant at the lodge. The prices were reasonable, and the food was wonderful. Fresh fish, great service, and a reasonable price. Definitely worth checking out! Get there early or make a reservation, as it does get very busy in... More

The food was excellent as was the service. We were seated by a window which had a great view over the Denali area.

We enjoyed an excellent dinner. My son and husband raved about the rib eye dinners and I loved the NY steak salad. We are a family that loves calimari and they have moved to the top of my list with theirs! The next day we enjoyed fish & chips on the deck and everything about the meal, service and weather...

We were lucky enough to spend a glorious evening on the deck of the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge Bistro Grill. The menu had lots of variety on it, slightly spendy, but what place doesn't cost an arm & a leg in Alaska. The view from the deck of Denali & the Alaskan Range was spectacular and the beer was excellent. We... More

Must try place even if Denali is not in view ... cold local brews and the food is terrific. Pulled pork sandwich is to die for and the Halibut Quesadilla was absolutely delish! Wait staff is friendly and attentive and the view holy cow the view on a clear day is unforgettable!

My husband & I enjoyed our meal & beers at the Base Camp Bistro. The deck was nice but unfortunately it was a cloudy day and we couldn't see much. Our waiter was friendly & attentive.

The food was great - but I am sure my extreme hunger played a little bias to that. I do think that my Chicken Pot Pie was very good, but not the best thing I ever tasted. However, the view, the staff, and the ambiance in its entirety was amazing. It had to be one of my most memorable experiences.... More
