A great little institution

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... read 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.

The Bamboo room is a small cafe type restaurant, the prices are fair and reasonable and the food was tasty. We ate here two different times.

This is about the only restaurant in the downtown area. I think there are two more which we did not visit. The Bamboo Room is small and quaint in red and white motif and a through back to the fifties. The food is good but just know that prices are on the up side because you're in Alaska.

My wife and I ate lunch here while exploring Haines while on a cruise. The place is not fancy, it has been there a long time. The food and service were good, and the price was not bad for Alaska, where the prices were higher than in the lower 48.
