Music was too loud

A nice restaurant with large windows in a very beautiful park. The only restaurant close by, therefore the prices are a bit higher than usual. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good. However the music was much too loud. If there is music it should be only background music... read more

great food right at Glacier bay. We sat outside on the covered patio with a wonderful view of the bay. The service was good and the food excellent. Probably a little pricey- but so is everything in Gustavus as it all has to be shipped in.

Oh man, I've not paid that much for mediocre meal in ages! A kids chicken fingers was $9 for 2 pieces of chicken. I got a salmon chowder, thinking it'd have good seafood, but I never did find any salmon in it... I had the special, the pork, but my wife couldn't even bear to eat it.

We ate at the lodge restaurant for dinner. There were some good menu options, including some fresh, tasty salmon. It is the only restaurant in the park, and it appeared that's where most of the lodge guests ate. It took a little while to get seated, and they recommend making a reservation so they know when you're coming and will... More

The restaurant at Glacier Bay Lodge is solid, but not exceptional. The included breakfast is quite limited (but then this IS the wilds of Alaska!) Dinner is a bit better, with a decent array of choices, and the food is reasonably good. For a fishing "camp" in the middle of nowhere, it is quite acceptable. The bar helps it a... More

You always want to find great food wherever you go, that's just the way we are. Glacier Bay Lodge provides good food and service. You have to give them credit though because they have a very limited operating season. They food is good and wholesome and some selections are very good... the Sheppard's Pie and some disappointing.. the fish and... More

Good food. Nice service. Great view from the dining room. No other options in Bartlett Cove. Make reservations early - it can get busy.

You'll always leave satisfied after dining in the Glacier Bay Lodge Restaurant. The food is delicious and filling. The view is incredible, especially if you happen to catch one of their multi-colored sunsets. Sit out on the deck and you may even see some wildlife, such as porcupines, ravens, moose and bears right outside! After dinner, you can warm up... More

The food and service at Glacier Bay Lodge restaurant is very good and professional. Of course, the ambiance is fabulous. The cost is a bit overpriced until you take into account that the lodge is in a remote part of Alaska and the cost of bringing food is expensive. The menu is varied with very nice selections for all three... More
