    Excited to eat here as the reviews were great. Arrived and given the list of food not available which was understandable given the time of the year. Wanted to order the halibut and chips but overheard the hostess tell the server they were saving the portions for a bigger table later on that evening so we finished our drinks and left.

    This was the best restaurant we ate at while in Alaska! Staff were wonderfully helpful and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the Butternut squash salad, Reindeer stew and Crab Ravioli!!!! Great eats and view!

    Reasonably priced for the area, with excellent food and friendly service. Beautiful views with modern rustic look inside. They do run out of things at the end of the season, but that is understandable. We came back a second time as thought one of the best choices in the vicinity for ambiance, food quality, service, and value.

    On-line menu was not reflective of actual menu. Baked Alaska specialty dessert wasn’t available and the waiter essentially snapped at us when asking about it. Waiter was obviously ready for the summer open season to be over. We ordered soup that was described as a chicken curry cauliflower, and it was chicken curry avocado! The brownie sundae dessert we settled for didn’t have an actual brownie, whipped cream, or a cherry. Just overall it was a very disappointing dining experience.

    Lovely staff and great service, but our meal was only so-so. My partner strongly felt that what was billed as fried halibut was actually cod, and fries were cold. My meal (baked halibut) was much better, but my main complaint is that I could hardly see the beautiful view of the mountains because the restaurant’s large picture windows were filthy.

    Nice restaurant. Great view. Beautiful bar area surrounded by glass. My husband had Thai scallops. Delicious and cooked perfectly. I had the king crab legs. $120 for the crab legs. Oops. Forgot to ask what is the market price. Good wine selection at lower 48 prices.

    Despite warnings that service would be slow because of lack of employees, the service was wonderful. We had fresh halibut and sockeye salmon and began with one of the best beet salads we've ever had. The price was the best we had encountered yet in Alaska. $35 for the halibut where it is at least $41 everywhere else. The view out the window was of mountains. All in all, highly recommended.

    We visited the Overlook in August. The restaurant is situated up off the road (hence the name). There are stairs leading up if you don't have a car. Food and service were excellent. We had the Halibut and chips and the Curried Alaskan Halibut. Cocktails were very good.

    I ordered the "Blackened Halibut Bowl" for $28. In this small bowl was: abt 4 oz of blackened halibut (very good), 1 sliced radish, 1/4 avocado, a few slices of cucumber, about 3/4 cup of rice mix, decorated with about a tablespoon of grated fresh carrot. Really? $28? 4 oz of fish, a scattering of vegies and you charge $28??? The servers were wonderful, the view, lovely, but the food is a rip-off.

    Definitely recommend The Overlook. The salmon dip appetizer and the salt and vinegar fries were very good, and tasty eaten together. The wines by the glass were their own label, and were decent. They have the same supply chain issues as everyone and short staff, but the food and service were very good despite the limitations. I would go again.

    This place is awesome. Great view with excellent seafood! Our waiter Marcus was the best. We had the soup of the day - an unbeatable seafood chowder. My wife had the curry halibut and I had the simple grilled halibut that were cooked to perfection. Best halibut we’ve had anywhere we’ve been in Alaska. The berry crumble for dessert was also perfect. We might cancel our other dinner reservation and go back there tomorrow 😉

    Food selections were very nice. My simply grilled halibut was prepared just tight to allow the fish to shine. Crab ravioli was superb I would have preferred a better selection of wine by the glass, but the house choices were good.

    We had a great meal at the Overlook. The staff was fantastic. We we’re staying at the Denali Grande Hotel and the last shuttle back to the hotel was at 8 o’clock. We had a 7:30 pm reservation. The manager of the Overlook offered to drive us back to the hotel making our evening stress free. They usually have shuttle service but like everyone else a staff shortage put that on hold this summer. Can’t thank Mike and his staff enough for a perfect evening.

    Really enjoyed our dinner at The Overlook. Outstanding service - Eric , our waiter, was so accommodating and attentive. He was also knowledgeable about the menu. Loved the crab and artichoke dip!! The salmon was so light and delicious. Also enjoyed the Alaska ravioli— homemade. Wine choices were impressive. The views were amazing . I would highly recommend having dinner here as a top spot in Denali.

    I booked on OpenTable and even confirmed the reservation on OpenTable . When I arrived for dinner, I was informed that it was cocktails only. The restaurant had been closed for about 3 weeks.
