From the view, to Lawrence the bartender and his extensive knowledge and skills... was one of the best meals and experiences we have had in Alaska!

Really had a great time. We were on a princess cruise and climbed up to the crows nest for drinks and food. We felt like we found the locals spot. Pork chop was exceptional. Thanks to our server CJ.

Staying at the Crows Nest Cabins. Delicious breakfast and not expensive considering where we are. Attentive service. Will be back before we leave.

We ate at the Overlook after a long day in the park. We had made a reservation and our table was ready right when we walked in. I had ancho dusted salmon and my husband had a ribeye. Both dishes were excellent and the service...More

The appetizers and drinks were good but way more expensive than the same type of thing as in town. You are paying for the view. While it is a good view, order a soft drink, take in the view and when you leave eat back...More

Be prepared. This place is expensive! I actually recommend the bar where you get the same view. You can walk outside on the deck and get the full view. The restaurant has wonderful service and good food. You can also just walk out on the...More

It's wonderful to visit a restaurant after a few years time to find that its quality of service, food and attention to detail has not slackened in any way. Sitting at the bar, my bartender David made me a beautifully crafted cocktail and from there...More

My husband and I both had great meals here. But the baked Alaska was the best dessert we had the 2 weeks we were in Alaska including on the HAL cruise ship! The service was friendly. The place was rather empty. They picked us up...More

We will be staying at a bed and breakfast in Healy, and will have a rental car. I've seen many comments about your shuttle and a hike. Is it possible to drive to your location to enjoy the restaurant? Is parking right by the restaurant, or do you need to park then hike? Thanks!
