Excellent job serving 86 people. Was able to respond and prepare tasty dinners and breakfast to our group when not expecting us because of not being able to fly out due to fog. Two days in a row.

We only were able to eat dinner at the restaurant as we only spent one night a the hotel. We around soup and salad for starters and both tasted good. We then ordered seafood for our entrees and they were properly prepared and cooked to our satisfaction. We had ice cream and carrot cake for dessert and both also tasted... More

We arrived for a 5:30PM dinner reservation on a Thursday evening and found several menu choices, including salmon, unavailable. What we did order was bland and tasteless; almost as if the staff had stopped trying. The service was equally bad.

The food and service was a giant step down from the camp food that I had on the kayaking trip before staying at the lodge. Let me count the ways that restaurant can be disappointing Dinner Sold out of the wine that I wanted with dinner. Overcooked salmon (even after I explicitly asked for the salmon rare). Vegetables were cold... More

They were out of salmon one night, very early, tried seafood pasta and regretted it. The next night the salmon was great. The breakfast buffet was enjoyable, bacon cooked just right. Service was inconsistent. Some servers were great, some uninterested. Since breakfast was a serve yourself buffet, I'd think they'd have more time to keep our beverages topped off.

The staff is very friendly and offers helpful information around the area. The foods we had there are better than plenty of high priced restaurants we have been to. Fish & chips, salmon chowder, seafood pasta, Glacier Bay Burger and Fairweather salad are among our favorites. Best of all, both the deck and the dining room have an unobstructed view... More

two! Did not stay at the Lodge (and after visiting was very glad we opted for our wonderful B&B in Gustavus) but we did spend time at the lodge before and after kayaking, taking the 65 mile cruise to the glaciers, exploring the trails and taking in an evening seminar. We had dinner here one evening after the cruise to... More

We were camping so had dinner here as a treat on our last rainy day. Had nice table next to window and ordered wine. Only issue is that both wines by the glass we ordered were unavailable as wine list was 'old list' . Only white wine available was a pomegranate sweet wine from Alaska! Unfortunately we had to go...

Food is average but after waiting so long almost anything is welcome. If you want the buffet go early or don't bother. Service is very slow and food is ordinary at best. Hire a bike and go for a ride elsewhere Was tempted to buy the campers dry meal from the gift shop and have that, but had no where... More

Went twice and liked the Halibut entree well enough to order it both times. Great view overlooking Glacier Bay. Service was very good and prices were reasonable.
