This may be unfair to give the Salmon Bake an average rating, but as it turned out it was not what I had expected. I expected the dinner and show to be in doors as other ones we have been to. The fact that it was raining literally put a damper on the event. I told my wife we were going to a dinner show and she dressed accordingly. (no jeans for the first time in a week).Big mistake. When we arrived at the location (which is another story) only to find the food serving stations outdoors(at least they were protected from the elements).Needless to say, my wife attired in a summer dress and sandals was cold and wet by the time we got our food and ate in the roofed building. There was another building we changed to which had a heater in it so we could dry out before our show which was going to be at the Palace Theatre. The confirmation I received when I made reservations for the dinner gave me an address for the Alaska Salmon Bake -Palace Theatre-Pick'N Poke Gift Shop as 3175 College Rd Fairbanks. That is the location I went to. When we got there, it was obvious this was not the correct location. Fortunately there was a phone number to call and was told that location was the OFFICE address and the dinner was to be at Pioneer Park. Nowhere in my e mailed confirmation were directions to the actual location of the event.
The food at the dinner was fine…all you can eat, salmon, crab legs and the usual sides that go with them. The show itself at the Palace Theatre was entertaining. A song and dance presentation of a little history of the area. All in all, the experience was a story to tell and another part of our Alaskan Adventure.
