Description: 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.

“Best Lodge with the incrediable view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is one of the best lodge we stated in Alaska. The view is amazing. Food in the hotel is a combination of good food, good services, and good price.

“Great place, especially the service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

The moment you walk in the lodge you feel like you are truly in Alaska and the restaurant is no exception. The food is local, the atmosphere log cabin-esque and the staff as warm and friendly as any other in the extremely welcoming state of Alaska and especially Talkeetna. Our waitress; Kelsie was warm, helpful, funny, and the overall cherry on top of the wonderful dining experience amidst the wonderful nature an people of Talkeetna, Alaska!

“Excellent views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

We had lunch here on the outer deck on a nice sunny day. Having lunch with an excellent view of Mt. Mckinly and the flights taking off and landing is great. The service, menu and food were good

“Decent food, awful service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

The menu said one thing and we were served something different. Our waiter, Jordan, didn't greet us for a very long time and was not very attentive. Our food took over an hour and was not impressive. Overall not a great experience.. And less than par service.

“Best view in town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2011

The restaurants and outside deck overlook the Alaska range (including Mt. McKinley), so be sure to get a window seat or sit outside if it is a clear day. Good service, good food. The desserts originally created by the Swiss chef are worth the trip.
