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.

Excellent service to match their excellent food. Have a terrific menu selection. From wine to desert you couldn't find better and for a very fair price. Terrific energetic staff. Sorry to have to leave there.

“Once in lifetime!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful grounds with breathtaking views. The night we were there we could see mount McKinley clearly with a fresh coat of snow. So white and majestic we had a view room and could open our window drapes and see it and the mountain range so clearly. I would decimate recommend upgrading to a mountain view room! It was the best place we stayed while in Alaska !!

“must see”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

We stopped by based on a friend's recommendation about the view from the lodge deck. It was amazing vista from the deck. We also had a drink in the lodge, one of the best bloody Mary's ever. It had a pickle in it, so tasty. The staff was friendly & engaging. There were two posters talking about "Moose on the Loose" & "Bear Sighting", which made it more authentic lodge in the woods. Would recommend for food, drink, & pictures.

“Bistro Grill- great view”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

We were lucky enough to spend a glorious evening on the deck of the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge Bistro Grill. The menu had lots of variety on it, slightly spendy, but what place doesn't cost an arm & a leg in Alaska. The view from the deck of Denali & the Alaskan Range was spectacular and the beer was excellent. We just ate dinner there at the Bistro, because it is less expensive than the dinning room and you get that fantastic view. Food was good & plentiful but was not our favorite Talkeetna place to eat.

Over priced and lousy food. Hotel with a view. Tourist trap. Much better lodging for less in downtown Talkeetna
