The food was absolutely awful, and the chicken was inedible! I gave this two stars instead of one only because those kids did try, and a few of the girls had pretty good voices. For $70, the food should have been much, much better!

Thankfully this was included in my package as the food was bad and the show was hokey. I felt bad for anyone who shelled out $70 for this experience. Upon arriving at the table there was a bowl of the saddest salad I've ever seen. Basically a bowl of brown lettuce. The chicken and salmon were barely edible. The young... More

Great food and a great show. Educational, entertaining, and thoroughly enjoyable! They may be amateurs but they put on a very professional performance that makes the audience a real part of the presentation. We totally loved it and plan to go see it again next year.

I agree with other reviewers!! You are squished into a stuffy dining room with mediocre food and in our case, rude table mates who were afraid my husband and I might eat too much of the hot food before they got any. It is served family style and the six other people at the table made sure they were all... More

We paid $70 each for food that was worth $5 a plate at most. NOTICE THAT ONCE YOU SIGN UP THEY WILL NOT REFUND UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. They took us for $278. We walked out after we saw the terrible, cheap food and they refused to refund us anything. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY and if you don't like it, there's... More

We all decided to check out the Music of Denali Dinner Theater. The food was average, if that. Served family style, the food was replenished quickly. The show was just like a high school performance. The best part of the show was the audience participants. None of us (4 couples) thought that it was worth the cost.

Our Princess landtour included the “Music of Denali” dinner theater. Coordinated by our Tour Director, our tour group sat mostly together, occupying about 3 long tables. The stage performers do double-duty as the servers. The food is served family-style, with a few large containers of each dish being placed on the table, and the food is then passed around. Our...

On an earlier trip to the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge, we had enjoyed supper at the Music of Denali Dinner Theater there at the Lodge. We were delighted to find on our recent trip that they also served a Sourdough Buffet Breakfast there in the mornings. The hours were something like 7-11 a.m., accommodating a number of schedules. The price... More

Food was good and plentiful. They also offered gluten free dessert for me. Includes coffe, tea, soft drinks. Free refills. The music and songs and cast/aka wait staff were great. Friendly atmosphere. Good for all ages. Handicapped accessible
