A wonderful surprise in the remote of Alaska. The food and service are amazing. Would highly recommend you stop, if you are in the area. If you get there and there is a wait, it's definitely worth the wait!

We make the drive from Fairbanks just to spend and evening here. Great food! Small portions but still filling and very very flavorful. After it's always nice to go back to Denali village and walk around a little :) worth a visit for sure!

Our night began with the house made "cocktails" which were loaded full of syrup and tooth achingly sweet. After two of them we gave up and stuck with wine. Sadly, it didn't stop there. The various appetizers were all completely over seasoned and/or drenched in...More

This restaurant could be the best in Alaska. It is certainly better than any restaurant in Fairbanks. I had the golden masa soup - incredible flavor. light, but rich. My dinner companion had oysters which were beautiful plump little things, and spot shrimp with home...More

Well it's not really towns up there... Denali Cabins is super close, but i didn't stay there. We stayed at the Denali Grand Lodge which is probably a 15 min drive to 229. Princess Lodge and Chateau are also same distance. More
