We ate here a few times during our stay at the cabins. The food is fresh and homemade at fair prices for the Denali area. We enjoyed the meatloaf with mashed potatoes after a long day in Danali, and this dinner was very filling and tasty. We also had them pack us a lunch for the park, which was very fresh and filling and included lots of sides such as homemade brownies. Staff was also very friendly and accommodating. Great place to eat during your Danali stay.

Best food that we had while visiting Alaska. And that’s saying a lot! Friendly staff. Worth the drive if not staying there.

What a nice little place for lunch or dinner. Excellent food with a beautiful patio view. Make sure you check out the photo opportunities at the creek.

Dropped in on the way to Denali and had one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Obviously all home made food and the buns looked delicious. So good we stopped for breakfast on the way back to Anchorage. Well worth stopping for.
