“Good Beer, Good Food, Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We visited Prospectors on July 8th after a very long bus ride in Denali (bus broke down) and came in very late. The late night menu was the only thing available, which is pizza. The bartender, Chris, got our drinks and food and was very attentive. We had to return the next day because I left my camera in the bar. We dined at Prospectors again for lunch because we left our camera in the bar the previous night. The food was great again (not pizza this time, reindeer sausage). We will definitely return.

“Good food - bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We went early on a weeknight so we didn't have to wait (although were rudely told by the hostess if we sat outside and changed our minds we could NOT come inside). Was brought the wrong beer, they brought someone else's pizzas to our table and sat them down. My drink was empty by the time we finished the appetizer and even though our waitress walked by a good 5 times she never once stopped by. It became a bit of a joke to see if anyone would offer us something to drink (water even?) but not until we had finished eating did she ask. They weren't busy so I'd hate to see what it is like on a busy night. To be fair, the manager did offer for us to return (on him I can only assume) but I was so annoyed there was no way that was happening. Not expecting great service in a town like this but for a place to boast 49 beers on tap and not offer them up is ridiculous.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

This restaurant was recommended by one of the rangers at Denali National Park following our 7-hour bus tour. The weather was rainy and somewhat chilly, and the warm, welcoming atmosphere of Prospectors and the great hot Italian food made for a very comfortable evening!

“Good Variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

A wide variety of pizzas to choose from. No matter what your party's taste is, there will be something that everyone can enjoy. They have fish pizza, chicken, meat lovers, spicy, mild. You name it, they have it. I personally like getting the AK Apollo, it's a Greek inspired pizza with feta and kalamata olives. Their service is much faster than it had been in previous years. They used to be pretty slow, but now the service speed is average for a pizza place. Not sure why they bill themselves as being "historic" as they have only been open for a few years. Nevertheless, great place to stop for pizza in the Canyon.
