Cheap beer & Lousy Food.....fun!

After our hike to Exit Glacier in Kenai Fjords National Park we knew we had to stop at The Salmon Bake for traditional baked salmon...The décor was rustic, warm and solid wood, as you would expect in Alaska. The staff were warm and welcoming. The salmon was okay, portion sized varied greatly... read more

The sign "Cheap beer, lousy food" must not keep you from coming here. After a day hike at the Exit glacier, there is nothing like a Exit Glacier burger and a beer at the salmon bake!

This used to be my favorite in Seward. It's only average now. The food was ok. The service was good. It's overpriced!

The sign outside the restaurant says cheap beer, lousy food. The inside was rustic, and the beer was cheap. But, the food was good. We had fresh salmon and halibut, plus a couple of appetizers. The service was good, it was a fun meal and the food was very good!

The restaurant decor was nice. Rustic with a comfortable atmosphere. We arrived before the late supper hour rush but it got busy in a hurry. We were a larger group and were seated and waited on fairly quickly. The service was good but not great. As it got busy, we saw less and less of our waitress. The food was... More

Their motto might be great beer - lousy food, but we can only highly recommend this restaurant. Very friendly service, the food was awesome ( we had fish tacos, halibut burrito, halibut pieces with fries and a halibut sandwich) and the restaurant is very nicely decorated.

Definitely an Alaskan experience. Decor was fun. Husband had the king crab and it was one of his favorite meals of the trip. I had the salmon and thought it was good, not great. Sides were all a little cold. The cornbread to start was the highlight of the meal for me. The service was very friendly and prompt. The... More

We have just left the restaurant because of a surreal experience We waited for the waitress 25 minutes before being considered. We asked for crab and a seafood chowder. They ran out of crab - according to the waitress for the next week (how can it be??) The chowder was blend and even worse without seafood....I really mean it...without seafood,... More

Utterly famished after a long day, I sat at the bar a good hour before closing. There weren't a lot of customers, so I figured, it shouldn't be too hard to get a beer and some food. But all I got was a glass of water from the hostess, who noticed that nobody had served me anything but didn't go... More
