We had dinner and breakfast at Foraker Restaurant. The view from many of the tables and deck is wonderful. Our service was slow and a bit erratic. The restaurants appears to be understaffed. My husband and I both had salmon for dinner. It was good but the wait was long before the meal was served. The meal seemed expensive for... More

We had both dinner and buffet breakfast in the Foraker. We found the service to be very slow for both meals and the food just OK.

While the view from the restaurant deck is spectacular the food is ordinary at best. Pre-cooked hamburger pattys and dry scrambled eggs were pretty unpleasant, though there is a decent wine list. It was near the end of the season and the waitstaff seemed tired and haggard.

We were staying at Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge and as we wanted to have a decent, somewhat luxurious dinner experience, we opted for Foraker Restaurant instead of other options we had at the lodge. We were recommended to have a reservation ahead, so we did but there were only 4 more tables other than us, so my impression is that reservation... More

This dining room at the Talkeetna lodge was used primarily for breakfast. Their breakfast buffet was quite a spread, and I did enjoy it, as did my daughter. My wife stuck with just oatmeal. I had the hash made with the beef and potatoes, along with lox and bagels, with OJ on the side. Yummy! It was more than I... More

All our meals were fantastic; salmon and halibut cooked just right, chicken marsala rich and tasty. Had to send the soup back to be hotter, but other tham that, wonderful.Yvonne was knowledgeable and a great server. A bit pricey, but beautiful place and great food. If ever in the area again, will definitely return.

This is the upscale restaurant at the Talkeetna Lodge. The entire back wall is Windows looking out at the mountains. The view is wonderful. I had halibut and tomato soup and my wife had pork chop. Both were wonderful. At breakfast we had the buffet and it was diverse and great. I recommend it highly. Only thing is service was... More

This was the worst meal since I started my vacation in Alaska. The Price for the buffet was 20$ per person, so you can't say it was cheap at all. All food was old, like you are eating something prepared 2 days ago. Scrambled eggs was awful. So, me and my friends paid for this breakfast and stay hungry. Never,... More

The Foraker has all the flare of big city dining without the dress code. Instead you'll find amazing Alaska cuisine, linen tablecloths, top notch service, and an award winning wine list. Enjoy dining in a quiet and intimate atmosphere while taking in unobstructed views of the Three Rivers, Denali and the Alaska Range. Our culinary creations have been featured on the Food Network, and we've been honored to receive Wine Spectator's "Award of Excellence" every year for the past decade.
