Beautiful views of the bay from the restaurant. Dinner entrees needed to be shared but were delicious. The oatmeal for breakfast was especially good.

The views from the deck are lovely. The food is good. As expected in this area, the menu is short on vegetarian options. Breakfast was good.

When in Glacier Bay National Park this is your only food option. The food was good but pricey. However, given how remote the park is, the prices are not unreasonable. The servers were all very pleasant and helpful. If you would like a lunch to take on the go, ask the front desk for a "camper lunch" form and leave... More

When at the Glacier Bay Lodge, one doesn't have any other nearby options. So, the quality of the food is better than it has to be but falls a bit short of fine lodge dining. Given the overall generally higher costs of restaurant food in Alaska, the prices are comparable to what we paid in Juneau.

We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and the food did not strike me as amazing. It was more than adequate given the remote location. Perhaps a little expensive given the quality of the food. Service people were very nice and prompt. Breakfast waiter was particularly helpful and prompt. Buffet looked OK. 3 out of 4 in our party... More

We arrive for lunch about 1230 and were seated promptly. We sat out on the scenic deck and had a great lunch. All staff members were friendly and courteous.

We've had the good fortune to visit many of the national parks, and the ones that offer lodges and restaurants are usually pretty similar. That is likely because they are all run by a couple of hospitality companies. Given they tend to have fairly captive audiences, we have found the food to be "good", but rarely much better than that.... More

Granted there are no other dining options without finding transportation if you are staying at the Glacier Bay Lodge, but we found the food and service to be very good.

I have visited many national parks. They are all expensive. But the staff are always super friendly and helpful. Some of the staff at Glacier Bay act like they don't care whether you are happy, comfortable, accommodated, etc. one young lady was just rude. We were treated better by the bus driver. They should put him in the dining room.

We were able to eat one dinner and it was good. After the whale trip we couldn't get back to the lodge for an hour and half on our anniversary. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.\
