Located at the Denali Bluffs hotel. Seating is available inside and outside with nice mountain views. The menu is very limited; this is mostly a BBQ restaurant. Not many options for vegetarians. The restaurant does boast a good number of beers for such a small...More

Breakfast buffet was ok, decent selection and variety of food. BBQ menu is very limited, quality is fair. Service at dinner was terrible. We accidentally walked out on the breakfast bill one morning because there was no pricing info and no one watched over us.

Excellent and creative bbq dishes are featured. Sure they are pricey, but still worth it, because: -Most Alaska food/products are -Portions are huge. Share everything, and you'll still be full!

The breakfast buffet was plentiful and good, although a bit pricey. Two of the three of us were disappointed with our dinner entrees. The BBQ pork was not up to par for a dish that is supposed to be a specialty.

The Mountaineer Grille and Bar serves smoked meats and southern style food. Take in a view of Mt. Healy from our patio while enjoying Denali's only wilderness homestyle BBQ in the evening and a buffet breakfast each morning. Lunch is also available at our Perky Moose Panty and Cafe.
