A little to the left is the hanging Cataract Glacier, with waterfalls cascading down its sides. To the west, Whiteout and Troublesome Glacier originate from a huge icefield high in the mountains.

Fine dining Alaska style

Everything is made fresh, using local, organic ingredients when possible and our chef takes great pride in offering some of the best food in Alaska.

Choose from a selection of appetizers, salads and desserts to complement your meal. No meat? No problem! Several creative vegetarian choices are available like a grilled vegetable lasagna or a nice Indian Curry with wild rice.

A unique dining experience

Eating at Knik River Lodge is a little out of the ordinary. Inspired by the African safaris we wanted to create a comfortable, elegant yet distinctly outdoors atmosphere. Keeping our not-so-African climate in mind we use a big yurt, elegantly furnished with candle lanterns and nice silverware. Enjoy great Alaskan classics like fresh salmon and king crab. For the meat and poultry lovers we have all natural, grass fed beef, juicy Oregon lamb and a wicked Chicken Marsala.

Enjoy a selection of local beers and fine wines with your meal or come up for just a fresh coffee and to enjoy the view. Watch the moose in the lower yard during summer evenings or get out the binoculars and watch Dall sheep on the hillside. Get the Alaskan safari feeling?

Our restaurant is open to the public for lunch and dinner from May through the end of September. What better place to celebrate a birthday or take your sweetheart for a romantic surprise dinner? Please call (907) 745 5002 for reservations.
