It's pizza. Nothing extraordinary. Clean, quick, cozy. You order at the counter. Don't be intimidated by the line, it goes quickly. Very large slices.

We had a very good post-hike meal at Prospectors Pizza. We didn't care too much for the other restaurants in Denali (which were also expensive) so definitely recommend this for a filling dinner that won't break the bank.

Family style pizza parlor. Frequently busy and hard to find tables. But best of show in the neighborhood

Excellent pizza offerings including a vegan pizza with vegan cheese. A rarity in these parts. Service was a bit slow but very friendly. Great music selection. I'm not a fan of the taxidermy decor, but that's par for the course in Alaska, I guess. Would definitely eat here again.

My sister and I spent our Denali vacation at a hotel that we weren't pleased with (to say the least) and we didn't even hear about Prospector's until the second night. But OMG when we went there we were thrilled! The atmosphere is so laid back and the door of the place was very interesting. They're selection is so large... More

They have so many pizza and toppings options that you just have to give up and pick anything or you will starve trying to decide. I personally suggest getting a couple different smalls just to better sample more! Wonderful!

We visited this restaurant for dinner after a long day riding the bus in Denali. It is apparently very popular; we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Once seated, the service was reasonably quick, and our server helped us talk through our options. My husband and I each ended up with a personal pizza, both of which... More

The place looked lively and bustling - would have been great to hang out here but the wait was too long. So we did take out which worked out just fine ! We were also told what not to order for take out - very helpful staff.

The pizza was really good. We ordered the Junko pizza that had grilled chicken and pesto sauce. Lots of chicken and good flavor. It was the end of the season, so the beer on tap was on special. I usually don't like beer at all, but the bartender said he could change my mind. He gave me a sample of... More
