Stopped here for lunch on the way out of Denali area. Food was incredibly inexpensive for area. Imagine the bar will be a great place once they get their liquor license transferred from prior ownership. Even without this is a truly Alaskan place - worth...More

Hi Folks. The Saloon is Closed Temporarily (Ownership and Liquor License Problems) but they have a Surprisingly Good Restaurant. This is basic outback Alaska fried and deep fried food. You eat what ever comes off the truck from Anchorage. They have a young cook who...More

I've always felt right at home here, even the first time we went in. I've always had really good food: steak sandwich, burgers, tater tots and hot wings. Last time we were there was at the tail end of the Bluegrass Festival and everyone was...More

My riding buddy and I were there in early July on our motorcycles. You have to go down the road a bit to find downtown Cantwell but it's worth it. The woman running the bar/making the food/cracking the jokes is wonderful lift after a day...More

Our very hungry party of 11 pulled in at 10pm on a Sunday on our way to Denali. They promptly cooked the burgers and they were very tasty! The Ping pong table was an added plus

This is an authentic Alaskan establishment. It is owned by an Alaskan homesteader from the 1960s and operated by her family. They love a good time and a party. The third week of July, the Longhorn Saloon in conjunction with the Cantwell Lodge, hold their annual Bluegrass Festival. Many Bluegrass legends have blessed their stage over the years playing their fine music while looking at the Alaskan and Talkeetna mountain ranges. Music lovers do not want to miss this yearly event. There is modest inexpensive lodging in addition to space for RVs and camping from May to October.
