We stayed at the Lodge while on a tour and had two breakfasts and one dinner. The breakfasts were okay, with a not very impressive buffet. For dinner, the salad and shrimp tempura appetizers were very good and good sized portion. We all had the crab legs and they were pricey, but nothing special. All in all, not a great... More

My son and I had the breakfast buffet. $20 per adult and includes 2 beverages. Great view and good food. Scrambled eggs, reindeer sausage, pork sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, potatoes and corned beef hash were on the buffet line. My husband had the eggs benedict and said it was great.

This restaurant is part of the Princess Denali Lodge just north of Talkeetna. A fantastic view of the mountain from the large windows.

This restaurant is located inside the Talkeetna Lodge. Reservations are recommended. It has a great menu selection of appetizers, entree's and deserts. The halibut is delicious and a generous portion. The blue king crab is outstanding and the legs are split for easy eating. A little pricey but your in Alaska. The service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommend this... More

We enjoyed breakfast at the Foraker Restaurant which is located in the Talkeetna Lodge. They offer a breakfast buffet, which looked good, seemed well-stocked and plenty of people were eating. We didn't want that much food, opting for eggs, potatoes, bacon (Bush Pilot)? It was tasty and the right temperature. Enjoyed it to start our day.

Our server, Sarah, was attentive and engaging. She helped with wine pairings and entree selection. We had marinated braised short ribs and grilled halibut in a sauce and combo that my husband described as "magic." The Creme Brûlée was also excellent with a twist - as the topping, it had local birch syrup with a real cream dollop and fresh... More

feeding a resort of captive diners, the food is overpriced and ordinary, I would recommend going into Talkeetna to dine and either walking or taking a taxi back to the hotel
