We had the cod and the salmon. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly. We split a bottle of wine and were impressed with the wine selection.

It is clearly one of the best if not the best restaurant in Alaska. We have tried a half of the menu and everything was great! It is on par with some 'fancy' restaurants I have visited in California. This is a must in Alaska.

We went to dinner with our 3 kids. The food was excellent, but the choices for kids were limited unless your kids are adventurous.

A wonderful surprise in the remote of Alaska. The food and service are amazing. Would highly recommend you stop, if you are in the area. If you get there and there is a wait, it's definitely worth the wait!

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!

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
