“The Cod was Tasty”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We had to wait for a table. We ate upstairs near the bar. The beer was great. The place was full and loud. Still, the food was good. The portions were big, the service was good and the folks were friendly. It could use some more cleanliness. It stays so busy there all summer, I doubt they get much time to clean. The bathroom upstairs needed cleaning and the door would stick.

“Great dinner after park tour”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Had a very enjoyable dinner at the Salmon Bake following an all day tour of Denali National Park. Rustic decor is comfortable and fits the wilderness setting. Nice menu selection and really enjoyed a halibut special on offer that day. Would definitely return again.

“Surprisingly great food near Denali”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

We stayed nearby as part of a cruise tour and enjoyed the food so much that we came back the next night. It's a great mix of food, there's something for everyone. I enjoyed the yak quesadilla and halibut burrito. The atmosphere is unique and appropriate for the rustic location. I would definitely recommend eating here if you are staying near denali national park.

“It's ok”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Reasonably priced and kind of dumpy on the hill at the "Glitter Gulch" Good clam chowder. No views and sit in back unless you like eating on a 30 degree angle.

“Wonderful breakfast last day in Denali”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Treated ourselves to a fantastic breakfast at Denali Salmon Bake. Had the absolute best smoked salmon eggs benedict dish - truly delicious! My wife had huge portion of eggs and biscuits. Waiter was very attentive and friendly. Decor was great. Had eaten at their sister restaurant the night before - Prospectors Pizza and Alehouse so had a 10% discount for the meal as an added incentive. But well worth it even without the discount!
