Food and service are both good in this restaurant but it took us more than 30 minutes + to get the bills settled. They need to improve their computer system.

Thanks for the review Wycee. We are glad you enjoyed the food and service. I am so sorry there was such a delay in the payment process. Computers are finicky here in our remote location but I will investigate!!

Restaurant does not compliment the hotel. Featured barbecue was very dry and broccoli very overdone. I would avoid both this restaurant and the coffee shop in favor of taking the shuttle up the hill to the Grand Denali where we had a lovely meal with...More

Breakfast buffet was ok, decent selection and variety of food. BBQ menu is very limited, quality is fair. Service at dinner was terrible. We accidentally walked out on the breakfast bill one morning because there was no pricing info and no one watched over us.

The Mountaineer Grille and Bar serves smoked meats and southern style food. Take in a view of Mt. Healy from our patio while enjoying Denali's only wilderness home-style BBQ in the evening and a buffet breakfast each morning.

The Mountaineer is not open for Lunch, but please visit The Perky Moose Pantry and Cafe in the Denali Bluffs lobby for lunch and a specialty coffee!
