We stopped for lunch, but the prices were way higher than we expected, so we only ordered desserts. We had pies, $5 each piece. They warmed pie in microwave oven, turning pie into hot mushy pie. We only stopped because of recommendation in travel guide. We were very disappointed in quality and price. Burgers cost over $10 each. If we... More

Eat where the locals eat. Good, basic American grub. Great pies!! Not a part of "glitter gulch"-area near entrance to Denali where almost everything is too touristy. One problem-when wait staff and kitchen staff have a disagreement, it needs to be done quietly in a back room.

By far the best food we had while here. The prices are reasonable, the food is plentiful and the staff is very friendly. If you're visiting the park, it's worth the 10-15 min. drive.

My husband and I shared shared the Grizzly Burger! Large portion! Not a fancy place but we feel comfortable in this type of place! The locals find it to do just fine and so do we!

I always get the best service when I go here. The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is always packed, which I take as a sign of how good the food is. Don't leave without trying a slice of their pie!

I've only eaten breakfast here, but this is by far one of the best places to eat in the morning. Absolutely the best coffee anywhere. The food is simple but tasty, omelets are huge. A must go place to eat when in Healy/Denali Nat. Park.

I had one of the best burgers of my life here! We went back three times during our two day visit to Denali National Park because it was so good! The pancakes are about an inch thick and hang over the edge of the plate! The shakes are unbelievable! We tried three different flavors - all delicious! Everything we tried... More

Great family owned cafe. We came in 30 minutes before close and they were extremely gracious and cheery. The food is all homemade and delicious. I had the grilled chicken salad, my wife had the tuna melt, my daughters had the grilled chicken sandwich, chicken fingers, and biscuits and gravy. We were all extremely satisfied. We were disappointed that we... More
