I heard that the ATV adventure was fantastic but this tour was very boring and expensive. The food served was good but it was a long and bumpy ride and, although we spotted a juvenile moose, not much interesting to see.

I really love this place. All their food are amazing and made with love. Try the angel pasta with smoked salmon, their salad are very fresh. Order it with raspberry vinaigrettes, its amazing! Their gnocchi is super good! One of the best restaurant in Denali!!!!

The country club setting and good service were offset by the poorly prepared food. My Alaskan roasted potatoes had enough salt to clear the Park Road. The shrimp in the pasta dish were tough due to over cooking. The menu makes promises it can't deliver.

I was not surprised by the appearance of the Black Diamond as it is rather plain but the menu was a big surprise. I had a beet salad, then a baked halibut entrée followed by homemade gelato. It was all excellent and not something I...More
