The King Salmon restaurant lives up to the hype. The food was deliciously prepared. I am a real sucker for fish and chips, absolutely awesome. The price was a little high compared to the lower 48, but on par with other restaurants in Alaska. The service was excellent, I ate a little early, not wanting to get caught up in... More

We ate here for two breakfasts, one lunch, and one dinner and were pleased with all of the meals. It tends to get crowded so there may be a wait but it is worth it. The service was great each time and the food was delicious!

This was a nice restaurant with a pleasant serving staff. The hostess staff was rude and surly. It appeared that they had things they wanted to do other than being hostesses. The restaurant was a bit pricey, but the food was good. I fell in love with salmon chowder while in Alaska, and their version was delicious. After having fish... More

I love the salmon chandelier! Nice views from the restaurant. The food was well prepared. The serving sizes are a little light so a four course meal is the way to go if you can afford it. Steamed vegetables means one steamed vegetable. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They were able to accommodate significant food allergies. I recommend... More

We shared a Alaska breakfast plus the blueberry parfait. Nice atmosphere. Great service from Vesko. Prices at all Denali locations are high, but the Alaskan breakfast, tow eggs, a choice of meat, home fries, and a choice of bread for $11 is not bad. Coffee service however was $3,25. Do not know what prices arr like at dinner.

My wife and I had breakfast at this restaurant on the second morning of our 2 nights stay at the Grande Denali Lodge Hotel during our escorted 'Natural Wonders of Alaska' tour with Titan Travel. We couldn't eat at our hotel as the restaurant was out of action due to the unfortunate fire damage two days earlier. Our hotel provided... More

My friend and I had lunch here this year. (We eat at this restaurant every year when we come to Denali National Park & Preserve.) My friend had a crabcake sandwich, which she said was a little overcooked. I had seafood mac & cheese, with lots of shrimp and king crab. Delicious, very rich. Always good.

The food and service was excellent. I wish that I could say the same for the hotel to which it is attached.

King Salmon in the Denali Princess Lodge offered superior service for our dinner. The food was pricey and okay, but not spectacular. It was a better than average hotel restaurant, but there are other restaurants close by in the same price range that are much better.

Thank Linbert
