While there is ample room indoors for the Base Camp restaurant, we especially appreciated the seating on the outdoor deck, with a view of the mountains, even if Mt. Denali itself was hiding behind the clouds. We had an early lunch [11:30 AM] here one day before setting off on afternoon excursions. Food and service were good. We enjoyed the... More

There are several eating places on property at the Princess and Holland American owned interconnected lodges at Denali. I thought this one was the best and most reasonable. It was informal as they all are. The menu selections had reasonably priced options as well as more expensive ones. If you are on a tour you may even have a discount... More

I enjoy trying dishes that are new to me, so I chose the Seafood macaroni & cheese. It had large pieces of lobster, crab and little shrimp in this classic comfort food. It was delicious! I tried the Blueberry Bread Pudding for dessert. My husband had the huckleberry ice cream. Both were very good. Our server was friendly. The decor... More

Both mu husband and I had burgers in this restaurant. They were huge and tasty with fries that were fresh out of the oil. We definitely enjoyed our meal. Atmosphere was outdoorsy and relaxed. Enjoyed our window seat which overlooked the river and mountains. Our server was good and she was quite friendly. I realize everyone who visits Alaska always... More

Spent the weekend in Denali Park and ate two meals at the Base Camp. Prime Rib sandwich was passable, but their King Crab Cake sandwich was just great. Great Alaskan brews on tap, I would recommend the Alaskan White myself. Great place to pay reasonable prices for good food. Views out the window are awesome too.

Located on the grounds of the Denali Princess Lodge with a great view of the Alaskan landscape, we enjoyed sharing the delicious Seafood Nachos. Also tasty were the Blackened Salmon Tacos and the Crab Cake Burger.

We ate here twice. The steak was not so great but the seafood nachos were terrific. The view from the deck made up for so-so items.

Boy, was I lucky in ordering the prime rib sandwich. It was to-die-for delicious. The meat was tender and juicy and the chiabata bun was just perfect. My husband was back in the room not feeling well so I took him an order of the prime rib sandwich and he agreed that it was superb. One of our party ordered... More

The best thing about this facility was the view on the deck. The food was just so so and the service blah. Our bus driver raved about their Mac n cheese and it was average at best. Would not recommend at all

This place was so noisy it sounded like a riot when you walked in and the noise never let up. The noise carried from the kitchen where they prepared food and the waiters banging the dishes in an open area. So they crank up the music to cover the noise and everyone has to yell to be heard when they... More
