We had dinner and breakfast at Foraker Restaurant. The view from many of the tables and deck is wonderful. Our service was slow and a bit erratic. The restaurants appears to be understaffed. My husband and I both had salmon for dinner. It was good...More

We had both dinner and buffet breakfast in the Foraker. We found the service to be very slow for both meals and the food just OK.

While the view from the restaurant deck is spectacular the food is ordinary at best. Pre-cooked hamburger pattys and dry scrambled eggs were pretty unpleasant, though there is a decent wine list. It was near the end of the season and the waitstaff seemed tired...More

This was the worst meal since I started my vacation in Alaska. The Price for the buffet was 20$ per person, so you can't say it was cheap at all. All food was old, like you are eating something prepared 2 days ago. Scrambled eggs...More

We stayed at the Lodge while on a tour and had two breakfasts and one dinner. The breakfasts were okay, with a not very impressive buffet. For dinner, the salad and shrimp tempura appetizers were very good and good sized portion. We all had the...More

The Foraker has all the flare of big city dining without the dress code. Instead you'll find amazing Alaska cuisine, linen tablecloths, top notch service, and an award winning wine list. Enjoy dining in a quiet and intimate atmosphere while taking in unobstructed views of the Three Rivers, Denali and the Alaska Range. Our culinary creations have been featured on the Food Network, and we've been honored to receive Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" every year for the past decade.
