Good stop for dinner after a long bus ride. The food is not gourmet, but it is decent. Eat in the bar, do not wait for the dining room. Wait staff is friendly and gregarious. Berry crisp was delicious. But, the chocolate mousse was really good. Just find a table, get a glass of wine or a beer, and enjoy... More

Appetizers were okay but way too expensive, even with the incredible view. Drive up, get a pop, take a picture and then eat elsewhere. I will say though that the worker's were very nice!

The menu was somewhat limited but covers most tastes. It was expensive for what was served but the food was good. My husband enjoyed his steak very much; he was pleased to be able to eat all of it as there was no fat or gristle. The waiter was not attentive to beverage refills and was slow to respond to...

Prices here were high, but we found all prices to be high in this area. The brussel sprout appetizer was huge and absolutely delicious -- we could have made a meal out of it. Service was very good. We ate in the bar the second night and if we had it to do all over again would have eaten at... More

After several bad meals at tourist type restaurants in Denali, we splurged for dinner at Alpenglow at the Grand Denali Lodge on Sept. 4, 2016. This restaurant was recommended to us by our Husky Homestead shuttle bus driver. I had been wanting real Alaskan seafood and ordered the Halibut. It was absolutely delicious and came with potatoes and carrots. i... More

We had dinner here on our first night. The restaurant is located in the main lodge, which is a beautiful, spacious log edifice with many windows to take in the spectacular views of the area. My dinner of scallops and mushrooms was good (not stellar or outstanding). My husband's meal was awful - the "fresh" salmon was overlooked and tasted... More

My cousin and I decided to treat ourselves on Sunday night and we drove the winding road up to Alpenglow at the Grande Denali Lodge. The posted signs all along the road were hilarious! The food was presented well and had good flavor. The scenic view from the restaurant is definitely worth seeing. The only downside was the price of... More

Beautiful view from high above downtown Denali. The food was okay in the main room of the restaurant. The bar had some less expensive choices. The server assisted us in finding some decent choices.

We had a very nice meal at Alpenglow. The food was very good as was the service. It falls a little short of "excellent fine dining" but was an enjoyable meal. One of the best parts was the amazing view. This is an expensive restaurant but worth at least one trip in my opinion.
