We were not sure what to expect, but these singers/performers/servers do a very good job at entertaining the group and we would go again. The food is served family style and the ribs seemed to be a favorite around our table. Considering the limited options in the area, support these hard working folks and have some fun while you are...

This is an excellent show not to be missed! One foot in the door and we were taken back in time to the gold rush days. Each family style serving was creatively served and we were a part of the action. The setting is family style with long picnic style tables. The food was excellent and plentiful with salmon and...

The cabin nite dinner takes you through the history and legends of Alaska in a compelling setting with live performers who also double up as the hosts for the evening's dinner. The food is great, the setting is great and the performances are great as well. This should not be missed if you have travelled all the way into the... More

A very "Alaskan" dinner theater. The food is quite good and plentiful, the service is excellent, and the play is very entertaining. It is family style with seating on long picnic benches where you get to know your table mates and your server. The service staff are also the actors and they have an unlimited amount of energy and enthusiasm.... More

This is a cross between an all you can eat buffet and a show, both presented by the same cast. First you are welcomed by the 1900's Alaskan frontier costumed wait staff and given a quick and funny briefing on how to signal for more food. Secondly, here comes the food: salmon, salads, vegetable, pork ribs and more, all served... More

Great area dinner theater. Family style food and seating. Eat as much as you want. Not much variety though. Fun entertainment so that you get an idea of the area. Great service.

The dinner was pretty decent. It was served family style and was fresh and hot. You could get us much as you liked and it had good variety. The entertainment was okay but not outstanding. The cast was very enthusiastic and tried very hard. The seating is on picnic tables without backs and two hours is way too long on... More

This was a good way to start our trip after a very long flight we didn't have to worry about where we were going to eat. The food was served family style and the show was presented throughout the dinner. Food was pretty good, salmon, potatoes, ribs, and a cash bar. The entertainment was geared toward the over 70 crowd... More

The show itself was not bad, but the food was. We had salmon and ribs. The salmon was little pieces of salmon - like leftovers and the ribs were so tough and fatty I couldn't even eat them. Save your money.

My wife and I attended the Cabin Nite DInner Theater as part of an Alaska Railroad tour. The place was packed, as apparently is usual, but they were well organized and it was fun meeting the others at our table. The entertainment was first class and the food, served family style, was good. The entertainers double as food servers as... More
