Dinner at the Lodge

The extraordinary dining room at the Lodge, with its wooden interior, double volume proportions and expansive mountain and lake views is the perfect venue to accommodate guests for a three-course dinner, every evening.

Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dietary requirements can be easily accommodated with enough notice to prepare.

Daily from 5:30 – 8:30 pm

As a top Denali hotel, menus, which rotate every night, always offer three choices, a seafood, meat and vegetable option, and are largely dependent on seasonal, fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Reserve your dining time to help us keep the experience as intimate as possible.
