“Flounder on Salmon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Located in Pioneer Park the Alaska Salmon Bake is a grilling experience featuring fire grilled Salmon accompanied by fried halibut, king crab legs, and prime rib. If you leave here hungry it is no one's fault, but your own.

“Overpriced, touristy... but okay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

What can I say? This is a finely tuned operation, geared towards feeding massives busloads of cruise ship tourists in an efficient and profitable manner. The salmon is okay without being fantastic, the salad bar is large without being staggering. The cost is "tourist-high", although coupons are available at the visitor's center in Fairbanks. I would normally never spend $30 a head for what is only marginally better than casino-buffet food, but did it anyway for the "Alaska experience." It is what it is.

“Fun buffet dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

A bus picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the restaurant. Upon entering you go through a replica of a gold mine. Then one pays a fixed price for an all you can eat meal of either prime rib, crab legs, cod, and salmon. Soft drinks are included. The food wasn't bad and when finished a bus returns you to your hotel.

“Crab legs and prime rib, all you can eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is an all you can eat mega food experience. On Thurs thru Sat they have giant crab legs, prime rib, salmon cooked on an outdoor grill, and deep fried cod, just for the meat coarse! The salmon was the best we had ever had. They also have a desert "shack" w/cakes and a wonderful pound cake w/fresh blueberry syrupy topping, Yummy!! The price includes salad bar and potatoes and veggies and a drink bar w/coffee, and soda included in the price.
Upon entering the hillside entrance you are in a low ceiling tunnel w/huge beams and a mini mine set up of mining cars on tracks. Very original. When you come out of the tunnel you are in a birch tree grove w/square picnic tables. You can get your meal and eat outdoors or take it into one of the two large dining halls. Staff is attentive to your needs. They also have a gift shop on site with the most reasonably priced souvenirs and t shirts/jackets that I have seen. They have old memorabilia from past mine shafts and equipment and a giant wood carved salmon that you can hop on for photo opportunities. Dinner is not inexpensive, but what a good deal if you like crab legs and prime rib and salmon.
