Poor service and very average food though a lovely atmosphere and setting, expected more as this facility is associated with Princess Cruise line

The only reason we didn't give it Five Stars was because we felt the prices were a little on the high side, especially when you consider the fish is caught locally. I mean, Alaska is the fishing capital of the world for salmon, isn't it? The atmosphere was nice, the food delicious, the selection extensive, but a little on the... More

We had a very nice meal at the River's Edge this evening. I had dined here on a couple of occasions, but it's been a while when a friend suggested we meet there for dinner. The wait staff was very accommodating to us in regards to where we wanted to be seated. Even though our reservations were for inside, it... More

We stayed at the River's Edge RV and stopped in for a drink and an appetizer. We sat on the deck and it was so nice. Nice view of the Chena River. So relaxing. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

Staff coped well with the all diners. Always impressed when there are veggie options on the menu, doesn't happen too often in Alaska. Not sure the quality of... More

We ate king crab, which I must say was longer than the platter, on the outdoor deck. You could watch the sunset, if it ever set, but didn't. The food and servers were excellent. Close to the airport. Just a stunning place to dine the night I headed home!!!

For about $14 you get a nice buffet, with eggs, meat, potatoes, breads and fruit/yogurt. Right on the river and very nice if you are staying in the cottages on the property.

The drinks are great, the food is well prepared and served with gusto. Eat on the deck if the weather is great, otherwise the indoors are good as well.

We stayed at the nearby RV park, and our party of 6 tried this restaurant for dinner. The 3 guys all had meatloaf and really enjoyed it, I had the seafood linquine, it was good , a little pricey for the amoount of seafood, the other two ladies enjoyed their dinner and the bread was excellent.
