“Friendly staff, great view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2012

The Grand View is a small cafe at the RV park. It has about a half dozen tables and advertises "Home Style Meals." In our opinion, the food was pretty average.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012

Good beer selection! You can see the Matanuska Glacier from the restaurant, and they have more food options than other places in the area.

“Welcoming atmosphere and good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

The wi-fi is handy, I was surprised they had it so far away from Palmer. They have a telescope you can use to try and spot Dahl sheep on the mountain slopes, and it just gives an overall clean impression. Seemed like they were close to running out of seating a couple times, may I suggest room service to the cabins? Some people will pay a bit more for the privelege of laziness.

“Good food and friendly staff in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

We stopped here because we were staying at the Tundra Rose Cabins next door, but it was well worth it. Very friendly staff, huge pizzas (fed us for lunch the next day too) and hearty breakfasts. Excellent coffee and smoothies. Not cheap, but you are miles from anywhere so that's understandable.

One odd thing, it doesn't really have a grand view from inside - the orientation of the building means you cannot see the main valley, mountains of glacier - you have to go outside to see it. But that's ok!

Would go back tomorrow if it was nearer to home.
