This was our first time going. Loved the fried cod and crab. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Added bonus of being next to the Pioneer Park. As must of you haven't gone.

Go visit this interesting park. The salmon bake is part of it and the salmon is GREAT! The rest is typical buffet food and not good as you might imagine. Eat all of the salmon you can though!

WE enjoyed the salad bar the most. THe salmon was a little on the dry side but had good flavor, the beef was OK. The baked beans were outstanding.

Don't get too excited. This is a large buffet, where the food is OK, but definitely, nothing exceptional. Judging by other reviews, I wonder if we were there on an off night - the desserts were disappointing and we certainly had better salmon and prime rib elsewhere around Alaska. Although there is plenty of seating available, inside and outside, be... More

large buffet with many food choices, good for kids also, plenty of seating inside and outside. bathrooms were not clean and outdated. may not be a good choice for people unable to carry food and stand in lines

Salmon is so good there.... I want more and more and more. And I like their potato salad also. It opens only during the summer but it is worth it to go. Fried halibut, crab, and meat, salads. One price and you eat all you want.

Loved this set-up for our first night in Alaska. The food was excellent, amazing salmon, prime rib, and cod. I could've ate just that all night. Cool set-up and loves walking around the village. They also have a set-up for alcoholic beverages.

We visited the Alaska Salmon Bake on a beautiful evening. We ate outside and the rustic style was exactly what I would expect in Alaska. The staff was all very friendly and the food was good. This is not a high class restaurant but food was very good. You can try salmon if you have not had it before and... More

There was plenty of food available, but the main attraction, the salmon was so dry and tough - overcooked. I had nothing but excellent salmon on our last Alaskan trip and was so looking forward to this. It was just a rather pricey buffet style meal that was just not good. I would not recommend it to anyone unless you... More
