It's always after the Flight to late Mt McKinley - now Mt Denali In Denali NP. I dont recommend before the flight but right after the emotional sensations. And always recommend (as a guide) halibut olympia (unless they have more good food). Halibut Is soft and juicy but not greesy. With violet onion and other veggies. Just perfect. I tried... More

Good and varied food, but very slow depending on what you order. Very nice terrace tables, rain permitting.

We had a one night stay in Talkeetna and decided to eat supper here. We split a bowl of seafood chowder which was amazing. Then we shared a bison burger and fries. The burger was good but nothing special. The meat was a bit dry, but that may just be how bison is. They served a special sauce on the... More

We just popped into this place because we were hungry and wanted a beer. The wait staff were prompt and very good. We just had a burger and fries and they were fantastic! We almost couldn't get our mouths around them and the fries were perfect. The beer selection was excellent as they featured several Alaskan brews on tap.

We had their Stubbs burgers, which were very good. Unfortunately some of the staff were arguing over some incident earlier in the day and were fixated on it. Aside from that, the place had a fun vibe. We ate at the bar and visited with a local. We would definitely go back again!

We stopped here after an excursion for a beer (they were out of the beer my husband wanted). We shared a caribou burger which was decent but not noteworthy. Felt the people in this town weren't really happy to see visitors (although they get a lot) and not especially friendly. Cute town though, just not for us.
