Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My sister and I visited our 1st night in Denali. Everyone was so friendly here and the pizza was really good. We had such great experience and I'd definitely visit again

The pizza is very good! When you're staying in this area, restaurants are limited. The place was very busy, because not everyone doesn't want to eat at the hotel restaurants all the time.

Fun, hopping, and busy place. Long bar with a wall of taps and you can eat at the bar. In season, you want reservations or you will have a very long wait. The food was quite good. Their specialty is Wood Stone Brick Oven Pizzas....We had the Vegan Prospector: red sauce, vegan pepperoni, vegan sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, Mama Kil's peppers and vegan mozzarella, and the Baked Tomato Sous... Housemade tomato soup, herb croutons, and pepperoni, topped with a generous portion of mozzarella and provolone cheese. We would definitely returnMore

This place is solid and a great option after a long day of hiking or whatever else -- better-than-average pizza, great beer and custom-made soda selection and the interior is kind of a fun mess of photos, hanging animal hides and antlers ... we enjoyed...our dinner and the atmosphere!More

What a fun surprise! This was recommended to us by a local and did not disappoint. It was very busy but we did not have to wait long to be seated. We ordered salads and pizza. Both were very good. But the decor was so...fun! We had a bit of a wait for our pizza but in the meantime we got to view the many, many Alaskan photos hung everywhere. I would definitely return!More

ACTUALLY VISITED JUNE 2019. However, my review was sitting in DRAFTS rather than being posted. My mistake, I guess, but since I took the time to write a review after visiting, I wanted to post it anyway. Here is what I wrote at the time...of my visit: There are not a great many restaurants in this area, and a number of the ones here do not get good reviews. Prospectors Pizza did get good reviews so we went there. We agree ...it was a good spot. We had good service and good food for a pretty reasonable price.More

We planned on going here when in Denali before we left from the reviews and pictures online. So after our tundra tour we went across the street to check it out. It was packed, about 9:30 at night. Both couples ordered a pizza which was...very good and I got the mozzarella bricks which were as big as corn dogs. And tasted great too. Didn't care for the homemade root beer, but that is not why we came here.More

We had dinner at this restaurant and the pizza was absolutely delicious. The salad was also very good. And their beer selection was really good also. Skip the fried ravioli, though, it was fried to death hard as a rock, and had more breading than...mozzarella.More

We went here for an early dinner. They must have been changing shifts but the people counting the till never said anything to me when I went up to the bar to order. It took a while but finally they looked at me and told...me the guy down at the end of the bar would help me. Bill was very nice and he was very busy. Once those two people were done counting the till, they were done for the day and Bill was the only one behind the bar. He did the best he could. They had a great choice of beers and the pizza was good. I just felt back Bill didn't have more help.More

What a terrible customer service experience. “Corporate” reservations are not only not honored but you will be chastised for daring to make an online reservation. “Corporate” confirmed the reservation 3 times within the last 24 hours.

With limited dining options near Denali and 3 of them as part of the 49th State Brewing family, Prospectors is a nice option for some bar food and great beer. The service here was phenomenal as we were warmly greeted and taken care of throughout...the night. Of course we got pizza - the Brushfire as well as the Baked Goat Cheese to start. The pizza was great along with the beer to go with it.More

Very friendly staff and great service. The pizza was very tasty. The elk meatball appetizer was delicious. The outdoor seating area was comfortable and a nice place to view the nearby mountains.

Hello, thanks for asking. We actually don't take reservations except for very large groups. We have a selection of 49+ craft beers on tap so most people grab a cold one while they wait if it's a busy night.
