We were travelling from Seward to Ketchikan via Haines. This spot was the perfect respite for us, weary travellers. We had a great breakfast and Irish coffees, the privilege of erry travel. ;) The staff was polite and attentive, and the food was great.

We visited this restaurant for breakfast. Our server was very friendly and very attentive. The ambience was pleasant and comfortable. The food was very good and was served in a timely manner. We would definitely go there again.

There are limited choices for eating breakfast, so here we were At the Bamboo Room, a misnomer, as one eats breakfast in a cafe next to the Bamboo Room. The meal was fine with the usual choices for breakfast.

The halibut fish & chips is outstanding. We live here and it is usually the only restaurant open in the winter.

Unfortunately, the Bamboo Room was the first restaurant we tried in Haines. The food was over priced and below average. The patty on my hamburger was puny. The ice tea they served was cloudy and bitter. Looked like it had been in the fridge for about two weeks. Service was fair, but no checking back with the customer to see... More

My wife and I ate lunch here. The food and the service were both good. Not a fancy place but the prices were reasonable. I would definitely return if I visit Haines again.

Best fish and chips in town? I hope not. Big pieces of halibut but not particularly tasty and very expensive (I think it was $28). Not much else on the menu that we were interested in. Rather shabby interior too; i don't mind a little retro charm, but this is just old and run down.

Was there for breakfast. The place smells musty and the cushions on the bench were so saggy I felt like I needed a booster seat. The breakfast was average in quality and expensive but the service was excellent.

Thank Mary R
