I ended up eating here because it was just about the only option open. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger and some fries. The curly fries were tasty but the burger was awful (no taste) and overpriced. The bacon was just as bad. The burger on the ferry was 10 times better and that's saying something.

With my first bite of the Halibut Fish and Chips I knew I just tasted the best fish in my 64 year old life. Over the next three days in Haines, I had three Fish and Chips from the Bamboo room. Wish I had a plate right now but Dallas is a long way from Haines.

This was the only place open on a Monday afternoon in March. There was some sort of holiday so nothing else was open. Cute 50s decor and large windows. Very friendly service. Loved the small town feel. My turkey club sandwich was awesome. I think we ate some grasshopper dessert and it was good. Wish they had more than cheesecake... More

The Bamboo Room is like a diner, the food was hot and pretty good, service was friendly and attentive but the restaurant was very cold. Granted, it was really cold outside so air came in every time the door opened.

We were planning on going to the local bakery for breakfast as we had heard it was the place to be for good 'healthy' eating. The bakery was closed so we ended up round the corner at the Bamboo Room. What a lucky break! You know, sometimes the wholegrain muffin and carrot juice just wont do it. It was raining... More

The food was good. It was pricey, but that is to be expected in Alaska. The service was just okay, not great but not bad. All in all it was a good place to eat if you're in town.

I had dinner here one night while in Haines and had their in-season Sockeye Salmon, and it was fresh and delicious. The next morning I enjoyed a Denver Omelette Scramble, and again, also delicious and satisfying. As others have documented, it's pretty much a "diner" and the name is misleading, but it's a solid choice.

Summer or winter the Bamboo Room is always open. We go to Haines at least once a year and we love it, Bamboo room is always on to do list. You have to try their fish and chips...

It's strange to me that this place is called the Bamboo Room, it should be called the Haines Diner or something more fitting, but anyways...food was average, service was average. I had a half order of the fish and chips and it was plenty of food for a half order. The breading was really good, as was the tartar sauce...the... More
