Feast on succulent Alaskan salmon, halibut, and Dungeness crab. Not a seafood person, we offer a delicious alternative to seafood at every meal. Enjoy locally grown vegetables and savor wild berries plucked from the surrounding rainforest.

In the mornings you’ll wake to the savory aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Join us for breakfast as our attentive staff serve you fresh baked muffins hot out of the oven, juicy seasonal fruits, and hearty breakfast platters… just the right way to start a day of Alaska adventuring. We prepare ample lunches to take with you so you won’t miss one minute of excitement during fishing or whale-watching excursions. After a busy day of enjoying the Alaskan experience, we anticipate your afternoon arrival with a steaming cup of tea complimented by homemade cookies. Pull up a seat on our spacious spruce deck, stretch out your legs, and share the day’s adventure with other travelers from all over the world. Relax as the lazy afternoon light fades into another spectacular sunset.

The perfect ending to your day of Alaskan adventure comes with the delicious three-course evening meal awaiting you at the Glacier Bay Country Inn. Begin with an appetizer of Blackened Shrimp or delectable Crab Cakes with Chipotle Aioli. After savoring your initial foray into native Alaskan cuisine, try a mouth-watering entree such as Salmon en Croute with green peppercorn sauce, or perhaps our carefully prepared Tea-smoked Breast of Duck over Rice Vermacelli. Of course, no sumptuous meal would be complete without a sweet finale, so we’ll treat you to Glacier Bay specialties such as our creamy Raspberry Cheesecake, rich Cinnamon Creme Brulee or flaky Nectarine Tart. Our world-class cuisine and personalized service, featured in Food and Wine, Saveur, and Bon Appetit, are only a few of the many wonderful surprises awaiting you at the Glacier Bay Country Inn. You will quickly realize the minute you sit down to eat that this is no ordinary Alaska fishing lodge.

If you have special dietary requirements, please advise us in advance.
