“Excellent breakfast but very busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Little bit of a wait for service as it was super busy but food was excellent! Loud atmosphere with so many people talking but waitress even though slightly overwhelmed was good.

“Nice Charred Salmon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

I enjoyed my meal at Totem Inn. Service was friendly and prompt. The atmosphere is quite rustic with a cluttered gift shop up front. The menu has a small but good selection of beers and wines. I enjoyed an Alaskan IPA draft with my meal. I ordered the halibut, salmon, and mango ceviche which was served in a martini glass. It was very good. An order of sugar charred salmon was done properly with a nicely crusted exterior and juicy interior. I didn't order dessert, but the table next to me was served an enormous portion of ice cream. Definitely an enjoyable experience.

“A Valdez Classic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

This local restaurant has been around for 41 years and it's still going strong! It's the best place in town for a hearty breakfast; lunches & dinners are great too. The whole staff is really friendly...Dorothy, Wes, Shawna, Pam, Forest, etc., etc. (We do miss Hazel, though.) It's a fun place for families; kids love looking at all of the stuffed animals, especially in the back room. Plus, tourists can find lots of Alaska souvenirs in the well-stocked gift shop. If you are visiting Valdez, be sure to check out the Totem.
