What to expect
  • Arrive at a beautiful setting, in a lush rainforest alongside a creek, under heated, translucent domes protecting you from the elements, rain or shine. Savor the aroma of wild salmon, grilled slowly over fires of fragrant alder wood – the signature entrée of this all-you-can-eat Alaskan experience – and settle in for a feast for all your senses! Choose from grilled salmon, Cheechako chicken, Chilkoot baked beans, Tongass wild-rice pilaf, Alyeska au gratin potatoes and a robust selection of other sides, salads and beverages. Beer and wine are available for purchase. Vegetarian or gluten-free? There's plenty to tempt your palate! And, just when you think you've had enough – bring on the blueberry cake for dessert! Come back for seconds, or thirds, while local musicians set a festive mood with live music. After dinner, take a short stroll along a natural salmon-spawning creek to the entrance of the Wagner Mine at beautiful Salmon Creek Falls where you can pan for gold, see mining relics, and look for salmon. Have fun roasting marshmallows over a campfire. You’re also encouraged to visit the Trading Post to purchase a souvenir and other mementos.

Food was okay but not what we expected. The first salmon bake we went to was an excursion from the ship. It was much better. I would not recommend this one.

Went there after our bus excursion. Don’t know if the cooks were on strike, or if there were a bunch of newbie cooks there, as there was nothing good or special about this salmon bake. The salmon itself was dry. The scalloped potatoes were cold and the potatoes were hard and undercooked. The salad and coleslaw was soggy. The brown beans were ok, but hey, how can you mess up on brown beans! There was blueberry cake for dessert. The blueberry cake was dry, I mean very, very dry and tasteless. That was pretty much all the choices in the buffet for food, oh, maybe cold red beets that were from a can!! The clam chowder soup was the only food item that was ok! This salmon bake was a complete waste of money!! Food was horrible!! Don’t recommend the salmon bake!! 😡

Beautiful inviting space. As you walk in, you are given a cup of chowder which was okay. Now choose your table...so many areas to choose. Live soft music. Buffet with several sides. Ceasar salad was tasty with crisp lettuce. Baked beans, scallop potatoes and cole slaw were very good for a buffet. Did not care for the dry cornbread, rice or chicken drumsticks. The Blueberry cake was dry too. Salmon was over cooked and option of a buttery brown sugar sauce. Iced tea, lemonade, hot tea, coffee or apple cider. Alcohol beverages for purchase. Nice quiet area for fire to roast marshmallows. We could not find the waterfall. Shuttles leaving at diferrent times and no hurry to leave. We had paid for another outdoor salmon bake in Skagway which was all around bad. This one was cleaner, more welcoming and food better. Flush Restrooms on site.

For the amount I paid, it was a straight drive to the site. The dinner was overated, as the salmon was pretty bland. There was no finese in the way the food was laid out and the stafff were unsmiling and not very friendly. There was no briefing by the driver as to what we could do there. The waterfall and old mininbg site was nothing exceptional. and the music...a laid back musician who was playing his kind of music and not music to fit in with the age group of the majority. He probably could not find employment elsewhere. Overall, a diappointing experience. Would never go there again. The reception at the wharf was also an unfriendly one.

Sorry, we didn't meet your expectation. It is an outdoor buffet-style restaurant. I do apologize for not being given a greeting and instruction on the bus. That is something our team is supposed to do. Thank you for bringing that to my attention.

The salmon bake was delicious. The buffet of sides was plentiful, dessert was blueberry cake, fresh lemonade, chowder, great music. There was chicken for those who don’t like fish and beer and soft drinks for sale.

My wife and I enjoyed Juneau in general. I can see why people visit friends or go for a job and never leave. The glacier and visitors center was great, but The Alaskan Salmon bake was so unexpectedly good. First of all, the people are very friendly and work hard to get everyone served. The atmosphere is beautiful. There is a river running next to the dining area and there was a live acoustic group playing on a small stage. There is a small trail that leads back to a beautiful waterfall and an old miners cave. Great for pics. Finally, the food was really good. My wife is not even a salmon fan at home and she thought it was really good. Plus they have a clam chowder that rivals any I have ever had. I would definitely go to the Alaskan Salmon bake again. It was worth every penny, especially if bundled with a glacier tour.

The Salmon Bake was delicious and the service was great! The gold panning was fun and Sterling did a great job with our tour and panning. The only thing that disappointed me was Sterling cursed several times on the tour.

After panning for gold, we were treated to an Alaskan Salmon Bake. There was so much food! The BBQ salmon was delicious. Afterwards you can hike the trail to the waterfall. We saw tons of spawning salmon. What a memorable trip
