REVIEWS OF Denali Family Restaurant IN Alaska

Sandra Myers

Clean, nice staff, fantastic food. A bit pricy, and the wait after ordering was quite long. This was 4 pm, before the dinner rush. But as I said the food was wonderful and worth the wait.

Crystal Collett

The food is always good, the servers are awesome, and the coffee!!!!! I'm a bit of a coffee snob, but this stuff tastes like toasted marshmallows if you add French vanilla creamer. I LOVE their eggs benidict, the best I've had all over the state!

Amus Evans

Great food great service

Haratinya Usoltseff

The food was okay I guess. The food took over 20 minutes to get to us and it was simple easy "slap it together" kind of food so it doesnt make sense why they took so long. Probably will not be going back

Paul Sturgeon

Very good food. A little pricey.

Lori Lane

Food is Tasty and fresh, served hot and always friendly service.

Lacey Bass

Great food!!! And amazing ppl my husband eats here everyday

manuel miles

Terrible place to eat. It took 25 minutes to take our order and there were only 2 other patrons there. Will not be back.

Jill Monroe

Juliette Vries

Fathersday visit. Buffett. Was good.

Keith Dunn

Food was good, service was excellent, portions were large! Great kid friendly place!

Bronson Johnson

Always quick. Always delicious. Lots of food for the price. I make a stop here when I am in town before work and usually don't have to eat until the next day :)

Karen Swett

Great breakfast, & nice service.

Andrea Axmann

This is a diner style restaurant that serves breakfast all day alongside lunch and dinner choices. The quality isn't particularly high, but the price is good and you get a lot of food. The waffles were very good and they can cook eggs to perfection.

Karl Schloer

A Valley classic, although they sadly no longer make the giant cinnamon rolls. Wait staff are always friendly and there are always a few other tables' worth of diners there no matter what time we go (spanning 8 to 11 AM). Standard comfort food and Alaskan decor. Check the hostess desk area and advertising at the tables for contact information on several local businesses and a few charities.

Don Mckeown

Over priced for a Christmas dinner not much to offer for a buffet

Gail Cabot

Delicious chicken cranberry salad

randolph loeb

Food and service were very good

Jamie Fabel

The food was good and the service was fast.

KingReezy 96

Big plates and great service, what more could you ask for?

A Gonzales

First of off the service was horrible. There were more people working than there were customers and we still didn't get waited on for over 5 minutes (not even water). Then I ordered the big thick juicy pork chops. They were NOT THICK, in fact you could read a newspaper through them. I made a comment to my husband about it and the waitress overheard me. She said "Oh, yeah. People comment about that all the time. I guess I should have told you that they weren't thick". Yes, that is probably some information I should have known when I ordered, but didn't think to ask since the menu SAID they were thick and juicy. We will never, ever eat there again. Plus, I will tell anyone who asks not to eat there either.

Gary May

The food, service, music atmosphere everything about this place is Great !!

Bryan Bender

Great breakfast

Brian L

I am from Texas where chicken fried steak is one of the main food groups (along with Bar-B-Que). I had been on the road for a month and was ready for a meal I didn't cook. Pulled in on a whim and was very pleasantly surprised. The chicken fried steak was very good. Expensive, but good. Of course everything in Alaska is expensive.

DeWayne Savok

Great breakfast!

Janice Edwards

Good food, desserts looked amazing

Arlene Cowdery

Friendly service and handicap accessible. Good food and reasonable prices. When you are ready to try Denali family restaurant I recomme there home made onion rings.

Jeffrey Fuller

Ordered the meatloaf dinner it was supposed to be bacon wrapped, sounded great on the menu, when it arrived it looked like it had been reheated, and it had bacon sprinkled on the top. Friend chicken was dry. And pretty pricey.

Ron Wilson

Great food


Always a good home style meal. Anytime I'm missing a real comforting home cooked meal I go and enjoy their food. Staff have always been very polite and attentive. When my family visits we always stop in for a meal. Breakfast is as great as their dinners. I appreciate this place like no other being a single guy who doesn't cook. Burgers are awesome, big enough to fill up teenage boy. Prices are reasonable considering the amount of food they put out.

Michelle Higham

Nice place for breakfast or lunch with friends. Not too noisy and great options.


They do gluten free sandwiches. I love it.

Matthew Colburn

Good food with reasonable prices and great portion sizes

R. C.

The food was very good, but the service was great! It was slow, so the hostess was our waitress. She was patient and friendly for every little question and request. We will definitely be going back soon.

Paul Blakney

nelisa jarapan

It’s a very good restaurant and the staff are nice and the food excellent..


Worst place I ever ate at for chicken fried steak. I had the Chicken Fried Steak that tasted like it was a store bought frozen chicken fried steak. Not a good one either but a stale old one that wasnt even crispy.

Bruce Ostendorf

Very nice place to dine, friendly atmosphere the food is fanastic .....

Katie Huling

Great food, fantastic portions for the price, and the service was really friendly.

Joshua Gholston

Omg I love this place. Everything homemade from scratch and if I lived slightly closer than an hr away it would definitely be a daily visit for food. Great environment, not too crowded, just an amazing venue for amazing service and food.

Carle Walker

It was amazing food and quicker then some fast food places and its fresh

Elizabeth Taber

Good food every time I have ate here

Tonya Welker

Got our food order wrong

Eric Lee

Big juicy burgers.

Trapper G420

Wont find a more expensive "family" restaurant in the valley. Kids menu is roughly $5 a meal, while adults pay close to $15 a meal for literally the same amount of food. But adults cant order off the kids menu. Oh, and coffee alone cost 4 buck PER CUP! no free refills on coffee here. Once I got the bill I noticed. No wonder they are so quick to keep your cup full. Staff is friendly enough but the ones in charge need to be taken outback and beaten with a hose. Would do a negative rating if possible. Feel bad because I couldn't leave a tip since I had to pay $24 for our coffees alone. Never coming back. Recommend burning it down. Oh, McDonalds tastes better too. And I hate McDonalds.

Mike Warriner

The staff are good and the kitchen crew is fast and accurate. The food is delicious and the quality is top notch for this style of restaurant. The serving size is a good size for the price. They also have a small buffet on Sunday's for dinner. The menu has a lot to it, and there is something for everyone. Their breakfast is available all day, and it one of the best in the Mat-Su valley.

Don Jacobs

A great experience.

Peggy Moore

Jeannie was an awesome server. Our drinks were always full. Food was excellent.

Carolyn Haggard

Great food, great service!

Darleen Garcia

Clean, Friendly Service, and Delicious Food was my first experience !

Vanessa House

The food was amazing. My husband enjoyed the reindeer sausage in his omelette. I would have prefer it if they had turkey sausage but there are good meatless or no pork options. The place was clean, and the staff was friendly. I definitely recommend it and will come back next time I'm in Wasilla.

Abraham Allen

Kind waitress and good service.

Marguerite Grau

Good service, made a mistake by ordering catfish. Tasted like the freezer. Not a place for seafood

This place has amazing homemade food every thing I have tried is great! The portions are very generous and the service is amazing. You gotta give them a try!

Barbara Bowen

On vacation, stopped at this restaurant for breakfast. I'm gluten free and have a hard time finding something good to eat. Waitress helped me with picking out poached eggs, hashbrowns and they actually had gluten free toast for me. Best breakfast ever. My husband enjoyed his breakfast and commented the pancakes tasted better than I hops. Glad we found this place.

Gersld Otto

Good food generous portions a bit higher prices but their Sunday brunch all you can eat is excellent

Lori Wikle

Super awesome food!

Sandra Libbey

A really pleasant atmosphere and very nice servers. We had excellent burgers. We'll definitely return!

Tish Anne

Our breakfast here this weekend was lovely! I ordered chicken fried steak, boyfriend had biscuits & gravy. While the biscuits weren't quite as good as homemade, they were more than edible and the gravy for both the steak & biscuits was REALLY GOOD. The steak was crispy and tender. The wait staff were all friendly and kept the coffee cups filled - excellent! Everything was reasonably priced. BONUS- they have yummy French vanilla coffee creamers at the table.

Sachiko Brandl

Very tasty! Had the fried shrimps and wow were they big. Left very full and happy.

Vanessa Price

Nice and quiet with good food

Elizabeth Plumb

Service used to be great, but has gone downhill recently.

Eric Yount

Stale bun on the frozen burger and got the BGs before I could leave the building. Over priced too. Lesson learned.

Liz Brumba

Good food big portions good service

Danny Noland

Nice family diner good food nice staff

Fred Nelius

Everything we have tried has been delicious and the servings were all so large that we have always been so large that we need leftover boxes to take home what we didn't finish. 10% discount for Military and Seniors.

Joe Schlanger

I've been going there for years now and the food is wonderful. Service is friendly and fast. I would highly recommend there fried chicken. It's the bomb.

chris enns

Stood waiting for the hostess to seat us. Watched a server look at us without acknowledging us. There were maybe 7 tables seated. The server went back to the kitchen to conversate. We left shortly after that. Went to Red Robin where we were greated and seated in a timely manner.

Tonya Franks

Very Amazing staff and Very Delicious food and Excellent Atmosphere

Jei Yi

Fresh baked rolls, breads, cakes, and pies YUM! esp their home made pretzel bun and beer cheese!

Andrea Thistle

Welcoming atmosphere. Fantastic Food!

Brian Staub

Good variety, but the eggs were overcooked, and the hashbrowns were undercooked. The location is ideal because it's on the way to everything and I want to like it. The staff is friendly, so it's worth another shot.

Jack Limes

Great Sunday brunch, great staff, clean friendly, fun, just a great place

Ashley Johnson

I love this place . Good food. Good price

Berend Folkers

Awesome service. Good food. Good price. Always leave so full. Highly recommend the Kodiak Omelet!

Jason M

Best restaurant in the valley. Great food and service with a smile every time! You never leave hungry I guarantee. If something is not to your liking they will fix it immediately.

Danny Google

Nothing wrong with it but nothing great. Poor biscuits and gravy

Nathan Ganster

Despite some bad reviews, my wife and I decided on dinner at Denali. We ordered the Bronco burger and the chicken strips. Both were amazing. The burger was my second favorite of any I've ever had. Out waitress was actually the table busser as the original waitress had left for some time. The busser was very busy handling the floor and front desk but did an admirable job and we gave her a good tip. Portions were big and we left satisfied.

kyle litwack

Great breakfast.

Samantha Ogle

This is a great place to eat. Love their food. The wait staff is amazing! They have gone out of their way several times to make my picky eaters happy. We eat here often.

My food was not good

Gary Mike

Very good food from salad to main dish will return for sure

Jerri Williams

Food was good. Service was excellent.

Gregor R

One of my favorite breakfast joints on the a Parks highway. Omelettes without burnt eggs, wonderful eggs Benedict, and corned beef hash! Never had a sub par meal here, and the coffee is great too.

Kalissa Patterson

I never got to taste the food because nobody ever waited on my family and I. We waited about 45 minutes and never got waited on. We finally got up and left after we found a sign facing backwards saying where to sit! This place sucked!!!!!

Bonnie Fant

Awesome service

Theresa Childs

Stopped here for a late dinner between Denali National Park and Anchorage. Staff was friendly, portions were generous and the price was reasonable. Breakfast is served all day and the coffee was delicious.

Shawn Tu

Good food, fairly priced, friendly service.

Kelleigh Orthmann

LOVE this place! We have been frequenting DFR for years because quality and service are always consistent. Food is freshly prepared and service friendly. Breakfasts are awesome and offerings varied. We call in for dinner take out often and it is never more than a 15 min wait. If you are looking for some good quality comfort diner food, this is THE PLACE!


Had the ABC omelette with hash browns and pancakes. it was good for the most part but hash browns tasted like old fish

नेपाली ठीटो

Everything is good but little bit experience

Dennis Woodruff

The food was awesome! Have breakfast here. The only issue we had is the time that we waited for the food. But when the food came, it was delicious!!!!

Ryan Jimenez

Best breakfast I’ve found around the valley. Always a good atmosphere. Incredible options.

Mike Levesque

I've been coming here since they first opened. Now I bring my wife and kids and we always leave satisfied. The quality of the food is spot on for the price.

Christina bread

Always has excellent service. Good is good.

Jeff Stout

My wife and I shared a Reindeer Sausage Skillet, which came with your choice of toast, which includes the sourdough that we always seem to get. In short, the skillet was excellent and memorable, with lots of sausage. The coffee was much better than the last time we were there. The service has always been excellent. Either go when you're really hungry or share a dish - the portions for every dish at our table were very generous.

Darlene Cullor

Great buffet!! Excellent service!!

Randy Karella

The service and the food were awesome. Had to personally tell the cooks how happy we were !!

Donald Lee

Just solid home style grub. Nice friendly staff, helpful, and food is really good. Bacon Cheese Burgers, BLT, daily soups, etc.

Cheryl Simenstad

Friendly staff-- buffet was lukewarm.

Jason Williams

Diner atmosphere, but pretty good food. Breakfast is really good.

dana r. mudd

plenty of delicious food arrived with each person's order, filled us up quickly and allowed for leftovers for a later meal when we got hungry at home later.

Roger Smith

All meals available all the time. Good diner food. Easy location. Large variety menu selection.


Their "Gold Miner" Omelet was filled with processed "cheese spread" instead of using real cheese. Opening Omelet resulted in watery, greasy "fake cheese" base flowing from it (with abundance of floating chopped peppers and onions -- and two strategically placed dime-sized pieces of bacon at both ends). I only ate it because my friend kept encouraging me and said "it's fine; enjoy." It was like opening a barf bag and watching the contents flow out. I don't want to hate my friend from bringing me there, yet I do. She has at least promised that "we'll never return." I know George (the owner of restaurant) and wish he would have raised prices instead of sacrificing quality ingredients. I'm physically sick as I write this review.


Good food, decent prices. It was uncomfortably chilly in the restaurant which dampened the experience. But overall, worth pulling off the highway for.

Shane Robert

Calamari was overcooked and extremely overpriced... service was nice though couldn't finish the meal

Chill Out Alaska

Best comfort food around. Great service too.

Kay Triston

I feel this place just didn't do much for me personally our server was extremely busy and seemed like the only server there in the morning to attend around 20 tables. Which is alot so we were rushed and didn't feel very welcomed. Our food was so so wasn't too bad but wasn't great the few times we've been here the service hasn't changed.

Sandy Walker

Good food, wide variety & great prices!


A delightful dining experience. Extensive menu items and as a professional photographer, a must stop to take in the view from their parking lot. Tasty and hardy portions abound.

Jennifer Keel

Excellent food and service. Will be going back
