We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with a selection of wine and Alaskan Crafted beers and no Alaskan Cafe is complete without a gourmet espresso bar!

You will enjoy favorites like creamy Chicken Pot Pie or try a house speciality like our Baked Halibut topped with a creamy blend of spinach, artichoke hearts and parmesean-YUM! End your meal or start your day with a slice of our Straw-Rhubarb Coffee cake or piece of warmed apple pie with vanilla ice cream, either way you will not be dissappointed.

We are perfectly situated just minutes away from the acclaimed Denali National Park - a prized national park getaway and wildlife preserve. 

Home to the nation's highest peak, Mt. McKinley, aka Denali (meaning the High One or the Great One in Athabaskan) towering at 20,320 ft.

We strive to provide information and insight so our guests get the most out of their time in Denali. Our desire to serve our guests is rooted in the fact that we ourselves and each of our carefully selected and trained crew members feel genuinely blessed to be living and working here, and the positive atmosphere of appreciation and thoughtfulness is as much a vein running through our daily operations as the gold running through the mines that drew so many to this still-astounding location; Denali National Park and Preserve.

McKinley Cabins and Creekside Café is not just a business to us it is a cherished personal enterprise that remains one of the last privately owned and operated lodges and restaurants left in Denali National Park, Alaska.  We take great pride and care in the product and service we offer and hope you enjoy it.

  • Denali reflections

Make yourself at home on our web site, and you'll get some idea of the flavor of how we'd make you feel at home out here in the wilderness.

Whether it's an evening campfire by the creekside, or a morning cappuccino at the cafe to discuss the day's events, we provide a relaxed and informal atmosphere with professional service. Come and enjoy Denali at the "Creekside" where friends and family come together under Alaska's midnight sun.
