Crooked little restaurant with a lot of character. Kevin was a great server! All food was delicious, from burgers to fish and chips to fish tacos. Highly recommend fish chowder.

Pleasant bar service and decent food. Good place to grab a bite to eat and some beverages. Elk sliders were much better than I imagined!

Food was amazing- our group had a crab/artichoke dip appetizer (DELICIOUS!), salmon, and halibut and every one loved their food. Service was fantastic as well. Only downside is it is very pricey, although most places are up by Denali.

It's one of 3 restaurants in Denali so they can charge whatever they want but a falafel sandwich shouldn't be $16. It's not nice enough to charge $30 for local halibut. They don't do a breakfast menu so at 11am, you're stuck with fish, elk...More

Don't be scared by the rough exterior. Charming "original" denali restaurant with great food. Service was slow but if you aren't in a hurry it is well worth it. Much better than eating at the lodge!

The bar is really nice. This bar also seems to be the place where the 'locals' go to drink at night. The bartender Dave is awesome. Makes drinks well and he kept refilling our water for us, even though they have water jugs on the...More

We started our lunch with a very personable, knowledgeable server, Melissa. She had food and beer recommendations that were spot on (the elk burger, the crab grilled cheese, the local made beer). We are planning on stopping by again on our way out of town!...More

Friendly atmosphere with a real Alaskan flavor. We left the Princess resort and went across the street for a different experience. The Halibut was fantastic with many craft beers and speciality drinks to choose from. A bit pricey but this is a resort town and...More

Our landmark bar and grill's Alaskan menu has something for everyone. While we get many compliments on our signature Cedar Plank Salmon, famous Halibut Tacos, full pound split Crab Legs and our Beer Battered Halibut; many consider our steaks, burgers and salads to be the best in the area. Offering nightly entertainment, The Bake is the biggest hub for nightlife in Denali. Open since 1984, The Bake has been celebrating life in Denali for 30 years.
