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.

The lodge offers food in several venues including an outside patio when the weather is good. My wife and I ate three meals here. They all were ordered from menus with a variety of choices. The food was good to excellent. Prices were average for comparable places.

Visited for appetizers and drinks on the patio. The view is unlike any other. It's truly a stunning view of Denali and the Range. However, service was extremely slow, even with a fairly open restaurant. Had we been there for more than drinks and appetizers, I'd be more annoyed. But the view, mostly, forgave the service.

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.

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 !!

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.
