We ate breakfast here and so glad we did! We chose to eat outside on the front deck with a beautiful view of the mountains. Blueberry pancakes and sausage, coffee was great. Don't pass this up! The owners have an eye for decorating and mixing rustic antler style with beautiful flowers. You can hear the creek rushing by while enjoying... More

We ate dinner one night and breakfast two mornings while staying at the adjoining cabins. All of our meals were excellent, the service was great, and the staff very friendly. Well worth it.

Great service. Good food and reasonable prices. In warm weather sit outside on the deck but there is also plenty of inside seating. The breakfast platters are heaping. One day I had the Reindeer sausage, the next, I had the slab bacon with biscuits and eggs. The wait staff is friendly and the service is fast. The manager greets each... More

With all the other over priced tourist traps in the area, this was a nice find. Quaint little place (outside is charming, inside is plain). Excellent staff & service. Food was very good. Price is in line with the area. Would definitely recommend.

We stopped here for brunch on Sunday. Our meals were very good and we had good service. They also have a selection of great baked items. The cinnamon rolls are HUGE and delicious! They are topped with a cream cheese icing and amazing. They are definitely big enough to share. Sadly I didn't get a picture and my roll is... More

We stayed in one of the cabins for 2 nights and had dinner here the first night. The food was good and so was the service. I had a really good meatloaf and gravy meal. Yum! We didn't order these but I did see they make box lunches to go so you can take them on your tour.

Staff friendly and helpful. Menu is traditional but the preparation was excellent and tasty. They have some killer deserts in the display counter. Bread made in house. They offer brown bag lunches for those taking day trips into Denali. Relaxed and comfortable place to eat. Stopped and ate breakfast again a couple days later on the trip going the other... More
