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

We chose to eat outside on the patio for the view. Their wild sockeye salmon sandwich accompanied by fries was very fresh, generously portioned, and beautifully seasoned. When the food arrived, the fries were good tasting but lukewarm. When I mentioned it to our waiter, he apologized and returned with a big bowlful of piping hot ones. That, and the... More

Unless you go to Talkeetna to eat, you are rather their captive audience. They do have a menu that reflects Alaskan cuisine, so if you want everything salmon, this is a good place. I ate there twice - a bacon cheeseburger on the first run and the Sirloin chili on the second. Both were good and very nice portions. The... More

The food here is very good and the experience was enhanced by the great view of Denali while we had lunch. The service was very good.

The staff is friendly and works to take care of everyone. We enjoyed appetizers and drinks, and later had dinner. I can recommend the spicy cauliflower. It was cooked to perfection, not mushy or too spicy. As for dinner we enjoyed the fish & chips. Not greasy - but flaky and tasted very good.
