The only place to eat in the area so there is a captive audience. Food is pretty standard and a little pricey for what you receive. We had the halibut fish and chips and halibut with Dungeness crab. Staff are excellent and friendly.

The food choices and preparations were excellent as well as the staff. Reservations needed. Wifi poor in the restaurant area.

Being only place to eat in The Lodge there is a captive audience. Need to book evening meal times or you will wait. Food is pretty good though is a little pricey for what you receive. The wait staff are very friendly and outgoing though a couple of them are either new at the game and out of their depth... More

Stayed and ate at Glacier Bay Lodge. Best Halibut Alyeska I have every eaten. Being a chef, I easily figured on the recipe and added that dish to my restaurants in Park City, UT and Phoenix Az Whoever said just pack your own meal instead obviously does not know good food and has no restaurant experience.

A nice restaurant with large windows in a very beautiful park. The only restaurant close by, therefore the prices are a bit higher than usual. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good. However the music was much too loud. If there is music it should be only background music especially in a park restaurant where the tranquility... More

great food right at Glacier bay. We sat outside on the covered patio with a wonderful view of the bay. The service was good and the food excellent. Probably a little pricey- but so is everything in Gustavus as it all has to be shipped in.

Oh man, I've not paid that much for mediocre meal in ages! A kids chicken fingers was $9 for 2 pieces of chicken. I got a salmon chowder, thinking it'd have good seafood, but I never did find any salmon in it... I had the special, the pork, but my wife couldn't even bear to eat it.

We ate at the lodge restaurant for dinner. There were some good menu options, including some fresh, tasty salmon. It is the only restaurant in the park, and it appeared that's where most of the lodge guests ate. It took a little while to get seated, and they recommend making a reservation so they know when you're coming and will... More

The restaurant at Glacier Bay Lodge is solid, but not exceptional. The included breakfast is quite limited (but then this IS the wilds of Alaska!) Dinner is a bit better, with a decent array of choices, and the food is reasonably good. For a fishing "camp" in the middle of nowhere, it is quite acceptable. The bar helps it a... More
