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.

There are a couple restaurants (one more formal than the other) inside and a coffee/pastry stand in the lobby that opens early. We ate at the Foraker Dining Room several times and were always extremely happy with the food. On one occasion we ordered the Matanuska Wings, Fish & Chips, and Chicken Pot Pie; the bill was about $40. Everything was delicious and our waiter, Jacob, took great care of us. From the dining room, the views are of Mt McKinley (when visible) and the surrounding mountains. I recommend eating there.

There is also a little coffee/pastry corner across from the big fireplace in the lobby. We had coffee and muffins there- everything was great. Price-wise, I feel the restaurants here were in-line with the other Alaskan eateries we visited. Considering these businesses have to make 12 months of sales in the short 5-month summer tourist season, I think the prices in Alaska are a bargain.

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.

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 .

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.

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!
