Staff were consistently good and engaging, even though it was the end of the season. Excellent fish sandwich for lunch, good halibut special for dinner, and good choices for breakfast. View was impressive,

We had dinner and breakfast here. The paella was really good, the service good at dinner. Service was slow at breakfast and they really know how to screw up eggs. I guess you have to have them over hard.More

I recommend this restaurant which is in the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge. The food is very good and the views of the mountains are fantastic. If you aren't staying here, you could take the shuttle from town to the lodge. Enjoy the food and the view.

Description
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.
