After a short wait for a table (even though there appeared to be multiple empty tables), we were seated and served coffee. We both ordered the Baked Blueberry French Toast with additional sides - I had the tasty but somewhat tough reindeer sausage. The french toast was delicious. The service was fine and reasonably friendly. The price including tip was... More

Good food, great drinks, courteous staff in a convenient location. Eating outside on the patio, listening to the river running, is very relaxing. Decent prices and acceptable hours.

This is a great place to stop, have a beer and relax after a full day of sightseeing. Our waitress (sorry, can't remember her name) was so friendly and efficient. I had nachos (yummy) and my husband had a reindeer burger (yummy again). We also tried several local beers with the Alaska Amber being our favorite. We spent three nights... More

We had a burger and fries, the burger rather small, not bad but also nothing to write home about. Service was slow at the beginning of the season, however friendly. No chetchup or salt on the table and when you ask for them (with the french fries they served) they bring two tiny cups of chetchup and one (really just... More

The Nenana Grill is one of several options you have when staying at the McKinley Chalet Resort. Of course you can walk across the highway and enjoy the McDonalds or Subway, but in this part of Alaska--without a car--the options are pretty limited. And so we were pleased to discover the Nenana dining room. And later we discovered the Nenana... More

While the food and atmosphere were excellent, the cost was very high. Several at our table were disappointed with the value of food to the cost.

We ate in the nice Grille room when we first arrived and were glad to beat the large train arrival groups. Very good food but Alaska pricey.

The food was good but certainly not worth the price. For a good meal at half the price, go across the street to the Prospectors,

My wife, having been here several times, insisted we dine here so we did. We had hoped to perch ourselves out on the deck overlooking the river but the weather wouldn't cooperate. Had some wonderful specialty drinks along with local beers and an excellent seafood nacho platter piled at least six inches high which turned out to be our meal.... More
