We ate dinner and breakfast in Foraker Restaurant, at the Talkeetna Lodge. Service was prompt and friendly, and the menu had a broad range of food that would suit most tastes -- and certainly it met our needs. It is pricey, however. And, given the...More

Located at the Talkeetna Lodge, which is at the base of Mt McKinley. Here you can enjoy some really fresh seafood, my favorite dish here was the steamed Alaskan King Crab legs. My wife had the Duck which had a delicious sauce.

We had both dinner and buffet breakfast in the Foraker. We found the service to be very slow for both meals and the food just OK.

While the view from the restaurant deck is spectacular the food is ordinary at best. Pre-cooked hamburger pattys and dry scrambled eggs were pretty unpleasant, though there is a decent wine list. It was near the end of the season and the waitstaff seemed tired...More

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.
