We joined another couple for lunch in the Bistro. We were seated quickly as there were not many people in there at the time. Our waitress was pleasant and we ordered. She served our drinks in a timely manner but lunch seemed to take quite awhile. The food was tasty when it finally arrived. I enjoyed the seafood chowder. The... More

Stopped in for dessert while in Talkeetna. We ate on the patio and the view made it worth while. Sort of reminds me of the kind of incredible vista view you get from Grand Teton Jackson Lake Lodge. Memorable - We had the ice cream sandwiches which were made with giant chocolate chip cookies. They were amazing but impossible to... More

We stopped here after a long day of traveling. We ordered the Chorizo queso dip, fish and chips and baked alaska. It was all very good, not especially memorable but I wasn't disappointed we stopped here.

We had fish&chips and fettuccine . Both plates had plenty of food and served at the right temperature. We were able to enjoy our meal and not rushed, which is a big thing to us. Our waitress was very friendly and professional. Our other night we had seafood chowder, wings and french dip sandwich again everything was good. Again enjoyed... More

I liked my breakfast buffet a lot more than my dinner here, although I'm not sure why. (Perhaps I wasn't as hungry the night before.) I had an ahi tuna salad and reindeer chili for dinner, which just didn't do it for me. So who knows? The lox on bagels I that on the breakfast buffet was quite good, so... More

The best choice of the two restaurants for a casual meal. The staff is primarily seasonal but very capable and pleasant.

This restaurant is part of the Princess Denali Lodge. Food is great, the view is fantastic. Look around the restaurant at the history that decorates the walls.

We enjoyed dinner here because there were some fun veg options. We had a beet salad that was presented well and was delicious. We also tried some Korean flavored fried cauliflower which had just enough spice to be interesting while still allowing you to taste the cauliflower.

This restaurant is in the Talkeetna Lodge. The view of Denali is great on clear days. Very good selection of Alaskan beers. Salads, appetizers and entree's are available. A must is the seafood chowder. It is absolutely delicious!!The wings with the house sauce is very good. If you stay at the lodge, you have a choice of 2 restaurants. You... More
