We stayed in Haines two days and had breakfast at the Bamboo Room based on the recommendation of our hotel staff. It was a short walk from the hotel (everything is!) and fun to look at the different shops on the way. The restaurant has a small dining room that has old photos and other memorabilia. Our server both days... More

Came here for breakfast after a long drive on recommendation. We were seated quickly but service wasn't the fastest - although only one server was on. The food was reasonable but it was expensive. I'm not sure if we just got an average day but have had better and cheaper breakfasts.

We used to eat here quite often when on vacation. This time around, the experience was less than satisfying. We had ordered halibut and chips, and the fish was raw and runny on the inside when we started to eat--quite a turn- off. The waitress was more interested in chatting with friends than serving other customers, though she was friendly... More

The restaurant is not much to look at from the outside and it is retro fifties on the inside. But, the food is quite good and the service very down home. Prices are also good for Haines. Meals are plentiful. I had a veggie burger that was nicely prepared, while my guests had fish and chips and a burger. All... More

Service was good, the waitress was really friendly. The food was mediocre and expensive. The halibut and chips is what I had, the halibut was nice, light and crispy but, they were more like nugget sized. The meal cost 19$ for two tiny nuggets of fish and frozen, under cooked fries. It was totally blah.

Great place to eat while in Haines. I had lunch there every day and their patty-melt burgers are fantastic!
