I recommend this restaurant which is in the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge. The food is very good and the views of the mountains are fantastic. If you aren't staying here, you could take the shuttle from town to the lodge. Enjoy the food and the view.

Had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. Enjoyed the breathtaking view and the great service. Higher end restaurant, but worth it. Also had their breakfast buffet.

We stayed away from the buffet so as not to weigh ourselves down by overeating, so we ordered off the menu. We each ordered a different omelette, and they were both delicious. The crispy potatoes were very good, as well.

Description
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.
