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.

“Good food”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We had dinner at the Foraker dining room. We had the potstickers and bounty salad – both of which were very good, and the Spanish short ribs which were okay. The setting was comfortable and service was very good. When you're staying at the Lodge this is a reasonable alternative for eating. Prices are high as they are everywhere in Alaska. Recommended.

“ok”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The hotel was pricey for what you got. They did have a great view from their deck of the Mckinley range. OK for one night stay , but not much more .

“grumpy people!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Pros: Good food and great wine selection. Our waiter was excellent.
Cons: Very slow restaurant service. Restaurant staff (except for our water) was incredibly surly at all times. You have to figure this is a trickle down from really poor management.

“Killer view and good food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The Lodge has the best view of Mt McKinley in town - spectacular! The food was very good and we had a very friendly server who had lived in the area for a very long time, she was very interesting. Lots of tourists, so a much different vibe than eating in town, but still the view! Awesome!

“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Friendly helpful staff, delicious food, comfortable rooms with amazing views (the refrigerator was handy to have in a hotel room too), the closet area was nice - not cramped at all.
