My Denali team went here as soon as we got off a 21 day trip on the Mountain. We were treated to an eat off between two of the climbers from our trip. Each of them ordered the "Seward' Folly", but neither finished.

If you are looking for something lighter, I have had their Halibut and a Mushroom/Swiss burger. Both were very good and their outdoor patio goes well with a cold beer.

Fun hamburger joint. And if you're lucky, you get to meat the town mayor on your way in... we sat on the patio - perfect place after you land on the glacier.

The West Rib was recommended to us for a good place for dinner. We were seated quickly. Our waitress was quick and friendly. Our drinks arrived quickly. The food even arrived in a timely manner. It was a good thing we didn't have to wait, because the food definitely was not worth any kind of wait. The salmon and the halibut were both over cooked and tasteless. The hamburger was nothing special. We had high hopes for the garlic cheese fries. Very disappointing. Powdered cheese. blech. It was nice to be able to cut through into the general store to meet Mayor Stubbs (the legally elected cat Mayor of Talkeetna) without going out into the rain. But, I'd walk through a lot of rain to avoid eating that salmon again.

Extensive menu for adults and we appreciated the kids' menu. The salmon-halibut combo was terrific. So were the salads.

West Rib is okay. The atmosphere is basic bar, the service was friendly and the food was good. The caribou chili is worth a try.
