We had excellent seafood chowder and drinks before our late lunch. Great value for bar drinks and food. Recommend the fish and chips and any of the beers on tap.

The Fish and Chips was one oft the best I have ever had because the fish was battered extremely crispy, the french fries were homemade and not only crispy at the beginning but till I finished my meal and the tartar sauce that claimed to be „homemade“ really tasted like it, just delicious. My wife had the burger with mushrooms... More

Staying at Alaskan Talkeetna Lodge overnight and decided not to venture into town for dinner. Decided on the Base camp. The food was excellent and the service was fast. Family friendly and the chef will customize entrees depending on dietary concerns. My seven year old loves the big burgers and the fresh vegetables. Thoroughly enjoyed

Convenient since it is in the hotel and we did not feel like leaving once we arrived. We were seated right away. The views are impressive. Expect to pay more due to the convenience factor of being in the hotel.

This restaurant is more seasonably priced than the other on the property. The food is very good but there are limited choices (especially if you are a vegetarian). The wait staff was great. Be sure to try the strawberry-rubarb wine made in Alaska.

Ate dinner here. The seafood chowder was seafoodless-literally. I had the amber beer battered cod which was very tasty but nothing special. Menu said served with steak fries which why I ordered the fish but came with regular Ole fries. The waitress was very abrupt throughout service. Never smiled-in fact none of the staff had a smile. Had to keep... More

We had lunch with a large group at Base Camp Bistro and had a nice lunch. There is a magnificent view but it was raining the day we visited. The service was attentive and friendly. I had the Salmon sandwich and others had chicken ceased salad, and a burger. Each meal was good and topped off with a mixed berry... More

The food was good but the view of Denali was even better. This restaurant has both inside and outside seating and the view is great from either one. The menu is diverse and you can have a burger, soup, steak, or seafood. The service was very good as well. We ate here instead of going into town and we were... More
