The Cafe Fox Lounge within the Lodge was recommended as a nice place to stop for a bite to eat. We ended up here for lunch. Ordered bloody mary's to start and they were delicious! I got the seafood chowder, creamy with chunks of fish and shrimp. Husband opted for the fish tacos, fresh and yummy. Our guest ordered the... More

This spot was recommended to us by a local in town -- specifically for their baked Brie and crab dip. It was AMAZING!!! To be absolutely honest, I shouldn't have ordered anything else but this dip. My sandwich lay forgotten on the side (don't get me wrong, it was good -- but the Brie was better). The dip was served... More

We made reservations for this restaurant based on a recommendation from family members. Ketchikan was a stop on our cruise and we couldn't wait to take the tram up to the restaurant from Creek Street. The views were beautiful and the food was delicious. Service was friendly but a little slower than expected for the prices. When you only have... More

We were on a fishing adventure and our 2 couples went here for dinner. The view and atmosphere are fantastic. I ordered the halibut which was tasty but overcooked. My wife's salmon was just OK as well. The crab/artichoke tip was to die for.

My husband & I had lunch here one day & liked it so much we returned the next day for more. The food was very good & the service was as well. Additionally, this place offers what must be some of the best views of Ketchikan.

Had a late lunch here on a glorious day - had to move away from the sunny large windows as it was unbearable, but this was no problem with the staff. A little slow with service but the food was good and tasty, good sized portions. Staff were friendly.

This lodge and restaurant enjoy a hilltop perch overlooking the town and harbor. If the lift is working (evidently, a big if), it is handicapped accessible. The food was OK.

The food and service is good. The view above Ketchikan is lovely. Although you can get there by road, taking the tram up is a fun experience.

My family of 4 visited Cape Fox numerous times and were fairly disappointed each and every time. The service is slow.... very slow. The menu is overpriced for food that is nothing special. I would recommend almost every other restaurant in Ketchikan before the Cape Fox Lodge

We ate at the restaurant at the end of a small boat trip and when the check came I filled in a sum for a tip that would have provided 11.3% in addition to the bill. My husband gave the waiter his credit card and when the payment slip was brought a sum of 20% had been added to it.... More
