This is a great stop to enjoy the view of the glacier and the taxidermy on display is amazing. Can't actually comment on the food, because the times we have stopped have not been meal time for us. We enjoy the atmosphere and do not want to take advantage by stopping for the restrooms and scenery so we indulge by having dessert. The blueberry crum is a favorite of mine, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed their choices as well.
The staff is very accommodating and do not rush the patrons. Be sure to step out on the deck for photos! And, maybe with the bear inside.

Came here for a meal after visiting the Matanuska Glacier. Fun local restaurant, with a great view of the valley and glacier. Surprisingly extensive menu, especially burgers and plates. Reasonable prices for very good food, well prepared. Some great local brews.

The dining rooms and bar are full of stuffed animals and animal heads. An interesting and fun exhibit of native fauna, from moose to weasels and birds.

I have to be honest that we did not have the 'best' food on our trip, but it was all reasonably good. The restaurant is somewhat remote, it must be hard for them to get fresh produce on a daily basis. We went in the evening after a long drive from Denali and just wanted to fill up on some carbs before crashing out.
The service was fair although they were clearly cleaning up for the evening. I had to wait a moment to pay whilst the staff compared their iphones. I thought of joining in because mine was actually even better than the one that they were raving about. My family wanted to leave though.
The best thing about the place was the wonderful view. Anyone who gets upset by stuffed (dead) animals used as decoration should avoid the place.

We arrived 30 minutes before the restaurant closed only to be turned away and told to go to another restaurant because they were closing already.

Needed a rest break on our drive to Glennallen. The view of Matanuska Glacier was outstanding as well as the home grown rhubarb pie ala mode. Staff were very friendly. There's also a nice collection of local wildlife mounts.
