Since arriving in Skagway this has become my favorite go-to place when I have company visit, or just want to treat myself. (Unfortunately they are only open for dinner a couple of days a week, as I can't get away from the store at lunch.) Charlotte Jewell has created a masterpiece with her gardens, and the food is a little... More

Delightful lunch, including some organic produce from the Jewell Gardens themselves. We had quiche, turkey-pesto panini, halibut pannini, mushroom soup, green salad and a most delectable citrus blueberry cheesecake. Would go again in a heartbeat. Easy 2-mile walk from the docks, over the Skagway River. And make sure you tour the beautifully tended gardens. Don't forget to thank the gardeners!

Went to lunch here yesterday, it was great! Had the ham panini sandwich with chicken vegetable soup, they have a great menu now, not just quiche and salad. Everything fresh and tasty. Tea served in a beautiful big china tea pot (should have been pre-warmed, as the tea was only lukewarm) but it tasted great. Sat in the sun and... More

My girlfriend and I worked in Alaska over the summer for a cruise company and enjoyed finding all the best places to eat in our ports. We stumbled upon Jewel Gardens after taking a short scenic walk outside the town. The tea rooms overlook the beautifully kept gardens which includes a working model railway and a glass blowing area. Just... More

As part of the White Pass train tour, we motor coached back down the mountain and stopped at Jewell Gardens. Choice of quiches salmon or veggie and then everyone got black bean soup.. Well, I being 1 of 6 liked it. Most didn't. Seriously - bean soup?? It was good but a choice there would have been nice! Nice place.... More

We stopped in here last week while passing through Skagway. At noon there was only a handful of people dining in two large rooms, but the staff said we could not be seated for an hour and a half because they had bus tours coming in from cruise ships. Why can't they keep a table or two open for locals... More

We have eaten at this restaurant more than once this season. While this restaurant is in a beautiful location, the service could use some polishing. The waitstaff could benefit from more appropriate attire for a restaurant /tea such as this. (They were wearing dirty sweatshirts and had dirty hair). This restaurant clearly prefers to serve people coming on tour and... More

Poppies Restaurant at Jewell Gardens is an easy 30 minute walk from the cruise ship docks or a 5-8 minute drive. Afternoon Tea was very reasonable with freshly made treats & locally grown tea. Many of the items on the menu are created using the local ingredients grown at Jewell Gardens. This is a tranquil restaurant overlooking the gardens.
