Service was excellent! Menu simple - food was fabulous - halibut perfectly cooked. Black Diamond is not on the main highway, but it is worth the short side road to go to!

On our trip to Denali there were not a lot of places to choose, but this was a Gem. Food was great and service superb. Our waitress, Jovana, was so good we came back 2 nights in a row. Try it, you won't go wrong.

As said before, this is for the owners of the restaurant...but I saw them prepare packaged lunches for another group while I was eating there...so I think they would! They are VERY accommodating!
