Maybe it was just for the occasion of the Winter Arts Show, but the air in the restaurant has improved: nobody was smoking in the bar any more. If they made the bar non-smoking now, it would be a major improvement. The food was always good, but having the smoking bar and the non-smoking restaurant in the same room did... More

Dear Lummerzheim Thank you for noticing the change; we did indeed make the Lounge and Restaurant NON-Smoking 6 weeks ago and like your comment we have received quite a few compliments about the change. Thank you once again for noticing and letting others know; we are confident the change will entice you to return more often. JWM-GM More

Kudos to cape fox! We haven't been back to cape fox in a good 7 months and we heard the place has gone through some great changes so we decided to go for date night with friends and we had a great time. They used to allow smoking in the lounge and they have done away with that all together.... More

Take the tram up and enjoy the view then take a walk around the lobby for the wonderful collection of historic native art. Generally the food is good to very good by Alaska standards (think a step down from lower 48 restaurant standards). The view is beautiful from certain seats and a peak into surrounding the towering woods in others.... More

Great view and atmosphere. Limited menu options, not many if any options for kids. Service quality might depend on the day. The menu specificly states they are not responsible for over cooking their beef so I'd be wary of that when ordering. Can be spendy so don't eat here if you're on a budget. Great location for cape fox hotel... More

The food at Cape Fox Lodge was simply excellent and the view of the city below was breathtaking! You can access the restaurant by walking up a few steps or take a short funicular ride. This restaurant has a warm interior design and the servers/waitresses were very hospitable. After your meal, you might want to take a stroll along some... More

This is a beautiful lodge -- set amongst the trees. We ate here on Sunday night [September 21, 2014]. The food was excellent.

The food alone would get a rating of five, I only give a four because the service can get spotty in peak season. It's understandable, and it's never affected the quality of the food. Don't miss the brie and crab dip-the local favorite. Everything is fresh and delicious. Breakfast is wonderful, lunch is delicious, and dinner is divine. The "banana... More

We wanted to have a drink overlooking Ketchikan as it was a beautiful day and the Cape Fox Lodge was highly recommended as having a nice view. We entered the bar/restaurant at 3:30 p.m. and the place was deserted. The dining area has the best vantage point so we took a table. The waitress brought menus and we informed her... More

Our server was Jason, was by far the best server I've had there. Even though the floor was busy (20 top reservation beside us) he was always right on top of our every need. We were a fun group, laughing and playing jokes, he even was participating n joking back. James, the General Manager as well as Tim the Food... More

Pleasant server, Heather, was knowledgeable and polite. She was fairly busy but was prompt with taking orders and bringing to the table. Bartender, Dakota, was courteous and knowledgeable as well. The view was beautiful, the entire staff was courteous and the food was delicious! I live in Ketchikan and took my visiting family, Cape Fox did not disappoint. I do... More
