Very peaceful, great view

We ate while we waited for our room to be ready. My husband had a cheeseburger that was very good. French fries were great. Relaxing as you look at a great mountain view.

We had dinner here after a long day in Denali National Park. The service was good, the food was delicious and the views were incredible of the sunset over the Alaskan Range.

We had two lovely meals. Breakfast was fast and delicious. Wonderful bacon! Reindeer sausage if you want. We had burgers and fries for a quick meal before going to Jeff King's (Iditerod camp). Enjoy this one!

Stayed at the Talkeetna Lodge, so it was a no brainier to have dinner at the Base Camp Bistro. It was super crowded, but we put our name on the list (party of 4) and waited in the lobby.

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
