“Best Meal of the Year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

We had a view of the mountains and river, beautiful. We had the coconut crusted halibut appetizer with chutney. Then we shared the salmon with birch orange sauce with Yukon gold potatoes and braised kale. It was so good we asked the server for the recipe for the salmon. The Exec. Chef came out with printed recipes of the meal, then he sat and talked until the sous chef, Jeff Elliott, came and said he was needed in the kitchen. We chatted with the sous chef a little. When we were ready to leave the Exec. Chef, Aramic, came out with a long wooden stirring spoon signed by both of them as a gift. This was the best meal all year but the extra attention just topped it off.

I bought some of the Birch Syrup in the gift shop the next day.


Ironically, the Denali Princess Lodge where it is located, was the worst place we have stayed in, in a long time.

“Breakfast With A Moose!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in on our first day in Alaska and were delighted that a young moose was taking his breakfast on the porch! The food was good (lean reindeer sausage, thick bacon, fresh fruit), and the service was attentive. The restaurant is beautiful, and nothing can beat a wall of windows providing an outstanding way to enjoy the landscape. Really good experience!

“Good views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

The restaurant has great views of the park. Service was good and on being informed that I was a vegetarian she immediately got the chef. After discussing with me he prepared the most amazing stir fry veggies on a bed of spinach. If you are vegetarian and want something in particular that you have missed head here. Nothing great about the menu. Looked more like burger place types. I enjoyed my meal though.

“Seafood with a view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Happy to have stepped in here. The place is part of a huge hotel that caters to the need of cruise travellers. The view is wonderful and the seafood is good. I tried the king crab cake burger and it was good to. This place serves salads, sandwiches soups and burgers all focused on sea food of course. Staff are polite and warm. However my search for the batter, oil and cheese free fish still eludes me. Prices are reasonable .
