Date is not accurate, we went in May 2014 but cannot backdate it that far. This place left a great impression on us! The pizza is amazing!! We came right before the season started, so nothing much was open in the area, and we thought that the food wasn't going to be that good. Turns out you can get a... More

Prospectors is in a shopping strip across from the Denali Princess Lodge. The place has great décor, good service, a huge selection of local beers on draft and good pizza. We had elk and caribou sausage on ours; tasty, not gamey. Great friendly service and reasonable priced.

Towards the end of our holiday it was a joy to find this little eatery at the end of the main retail and dining strip in Denali township. My man ordered pizza which was generous in size and fillings and he found it utterly satisfying. I ordered the mac and cheese, it being the furthest item on the menu from... More

Food was great. The chinook pizza with smoked salmon was delicious and different! The grinders were very good as well. Fries and beer topped it off! Good service too!

We were staying in the area 2 nights. The first night we walked over to Prospectors Pizzeria and were told it would be about a 45 minute wait. We decided to find someplace else. They told us to come back the next day before 5 or after 8 (I think those were the times). They were super busy. The tables... More

Yep! absolutely blew us away. My wife and I first heard about this place in San Diego from a friend who had been to the McKinley Lodge. We ordered their namesake pizza, the Prospector, grizzly size and it fed five of us. We agreed it was some of the best pizza we've had anywhere. For the occassion we all ordered... More

Pizza was pretty good, not great. Pasta was good for my son who was looking for just that... pasta, butter and cheese. Took awhile to get service.

We stayed in Denali four nights in early August. Only made dinner reservations in advance for one night. Prospectors Pizza was one of the few that was able to seat us with a minimal wait, so we ended up eating there two of the four nights. Menu is broad enough for a primarily italian restaurant, albeit standard fare. Food was... More
