Description: The Baked Alaska Restaurant, Lounge and Pizzeria is a dining destination while visiting Astoria, OR. Our Main Dining Room features sweeping views of the Columbia River, our Lounge offers 10 taps with specialty craft beers, plus an extensive wine list featuring Oregon and Washington wines. We also hand crafted cocktails using Oregon distilled spirits. If you are looking for a fun family atmosphere, look no further than the Baked Pizzeria featuring Artisan style pizza right from our 800 degree brick oven. We also have a private waterfront dining room which can seat up to 30 guests, or have your special event catered off site with our custom catering services. Baked Alaska, the only thing we overlook is the Columbia River!

We ate there because they have a spectacular view of the Columbia River. The dining area is pleasant and the view is available from more than one wall. We were there at 4 pm on a Thursday in February, so we mostly had the place to ourselves. I had the crab cakes and they were the most tasteless ones I have ever had. The aoli sauce was odd tasting to match with crab. They were also cooked in too much oil. 18 months ago, one reviewer stated the food was unseasoned.........nothing has changed. I also had the seasonal vegetables and they were also drenched in oil even though I asked for minimal oil to be used. My friend had the soup of the day and said it was good. It appears that everything is ala carte, including the bread basket. For you vacationers, go there for a drink for the view, but if you expect a wonderful meal, this is not the place. With a great chef, this place has potential, but the food is a big disappointment at this time.

The atmosphere and view were great. The service was lacking the food was good but a bit overpriced. Would I go back? Probably because this was the first time we were there I would like to give it another chance.

We were vacationing in Astoria over Valentine's Day and dined at the Baked Alaska. The clam chowder was yummy. Dinner was delicious. And the baked Alaska desert the perfect finish.

We just discovered this restaurant and are so happy we did! We enjoyed some fries and wings (very spicy, so beware!!) while we waited for our take out pizza. The view from the main part if the restaurant is amazing and we are anxious to dine there soon! The pizza tasted great! One pizza was gluten free and it also was fantastic! The wait staff were personable. Very enjoyable experience!

We dropped in on a very cold night for a light meal. The staff was so accommodating, looking for a seat where we could both look out over the river to watch the lights come on out on the big ships. We had big bowls of the best clam chowder - smooth and creamy with subtle favors and it was hot! The field greens salad had pears, pecorino cheese and pecans with a very light dressing -perfect. Our waiter was friendly, attentive, and informative. We liked this restaurant very much.
