We make the drive from Fairbanks just to spend and evening here. Great food! Small portions but still filling and very very flavorful. After it's always nice to go back to Denali village and walk around a little :) worth a visit for sure!

we had scallops on potato medallions and crab stuffed pasta envelopes, wonderful salads all with fresh local produce and fabulous rolls with lemon-dill butter.

Our night began with the house made "cocktails" which were loaded full of syrup and tooth achingly sweet. After two of them we gave up and stuck with wine. Sadly, it didn't stop there. The various appetizers were all completely over seasoned and/or drenched in...More

We've eaten here many times over the years when we go to the Park. My halibut was over cooked. The scallops used to be huge, but now they're just regular sized. The atmosphere continues to be somewhat casual. Lots of hard surfaces translates to a...More

Well it's not really towns up there... Denali Cabins is super close, but i didn't stay there. We stayed at the Denali Grand Lodge which is probably a 15 min drive to 229. Princess Lodge and Chateau are also same distance. More
