Our dining room is one of our guests’ favorite areas. Each meal is a social event, where a diverse gathering of world experiences make every meal a joy. We strive to make each meal unique, using fresh local produce in season, Alaskan fish, seafood, and local meats. Service is unpretentious just like most Alaskans, served in relaxed atmosphere.
Our head chef, Helen Mclean, guides the preparation of every stage of the meals, to make sure they are both healthy and flavorful. Helen is a lifelong Alaskan, raised in the lodge business, and has many years of experience to inform her menu preparation. Our staff working under Helen is well-trained, friendly, and knowledgeable of the history and pride of our establishment. What truly sets our dining experience apart, in addition to our Alaskan entrees, is our salads and desserts. The salads are fresh, local, and served with our own recipes consisting of Alaskan berries and fruits–which perfectly complement the gourmet cheeses and nuts also present. Helen, who is sometimes referred to as “Martha of the Arctic”, prepares desserts. They are as beautiful as they are delicious.
In the summer, we have our very own herb container garden on the deck, which is used every-day to make our dishes sing!
The exact menu that you will be enjoying will be determined by what’s in season as well as the best locally available meats and cheeses at that time.
