After a long day of exploring Denali, my friend and I were hungry and this restaurant was closest to our cabins. I’m not a seafood fan, so I ordered the chicken and my friend ordered the salmon. The chicken was soooooo good and my friend...More

This restaurant provided good food for both an enjoyable dinner and breakfast. And since we stayed in their resort, a good room for the money. Thank you.

This place is a restaurant that is an amazing treat ... rural, but great wines. The beers are amazing.... I recommend the whalers wheat beer.... every meal below was amazing. The wine list is very nice and the beers are all made in Alaska

Ate here twice during our 4 days in Denali. The trout was excellent, as was the chicken. The pasta dish (ravioli) was not as good because, while the salmon filling was superb, the pasta was underdone. The service was very friendly and attentive. The “Perch”...More

The Perch offers you cozy, private cabins, hotel rooms and lodging near Denali National Park. Tucked into the woods and bordered by pristine Carlo Creek, our cabins offer you an Alaskan experience that is truly unique.Tree-top dining at the Perch Restaurant is a wonderful way to begin and end your day. The restaurant is “perched” atop a gravel moraine left by a glacier. Each of our 13 bay windows has a spectacular view of the Alaska range and it's many glaciers. Weather permitting, you can dine on our large deck, or just sit out in the sun and enjoy a cocktail while you wait for dinner.
