Great little place

This was one of few options near our hotel, and fortunately it was very nice. The inside of the building is about half bar, and half restaurant. The food was good to very good. Some of the best halibut fish and chips I've ever had, and I live in Alaska.

The waitress didn't know what was available for pies and forgot my salad. The food was ordinary but very expensive for 2 pieces of fish and fries, $16. The fish was overlooked.

How disappointing given the rather good reviews here. Visited on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend 2015 based on the reviews here and the moniker "famous for fish and chips" on the outside of the restaurant. Arrived to an empty house (both bar and restaurant) at 5:45 p.m. on a Saturday night of a very busy Haines, AK, weekend (annual... More

The bamboo room has been around since the dawn of time. If the walls could talk they would tell volumes. I have eaten there maybe 8-10 times over 10 or so years. I am always satisfied, We just ate there 3 times in the same amount of days. The place was BUSY with a big swim meet going on. Ever... More

If you want good fish and chips go here. Good menu. Open hours are a tad weird. Decor is old but nice. Good place to take the family. Prices can be a bit over the top on something's

This place has been around forever and has lots of interesting history. The menu is pretty basic, good food, homecooking. The staff are friendly. A good place for a warm meal on a rainy day

One of the few restaurants open in late November. Generally large portions and food well prepared. The seafood is local and fresh. Staff very friendly. Well worth the visit while in Haines.

Lots of history with this place and worth taking it in. I ate here 4 times during my stay in Haines, twice in the restaurant and twice in the bar. This really be two reviews and I would give the Pioneer Bar four stars and Banboo 3. Staff/Service: Had different servers every night. Service varied from excellent (in the bar)... More

Bamboo room is in the middle of town. The decor is plain but the food & service is excellent. The fish is very fresh, I asked for grilled, they don't always do it but they did for me! Thank you 😊 A cosy place with friendly staff.
