I was here for work and fun, with a colleague, the food was really a lot, big dishes served quickly and with friendly staff. The place is pretty big and they all sorts of food: fish, meat and other side dishes, sweets are amazing. I'd say it's all local food. The way to get up to the Lodge is with... More

Went to the scotch dinner class tonight with Dr Tom Turner! The food and service were top notch and the class was amazing! After the class we had dessert in the lounge with some more great scotch! Great job Cape Fox way to go.

The restaurant at Cape Fox had seriously went down hill over the past year to year and a half when the changed their menu. The last time I was there I ordered their chowder, which is normally great. Much to my surprise I found a seafood shell in the dish when I bit into it. I made the waiter aware... More

Their food was very good but service was a bit slow, though I found that to be true of most of Ketchikan, so that could just be the lifestyle. I stayed at the Lodge and really enjoyed my stay overall, but didn't want to pay the price for dinner at their restaurant, going into town each night of my stay,... More

If you have not been on a helicopter or a sea plane in Ketchikan, then you have a chance of a Bird's view of Ketcikan for Cape Fox Lodge. Pay only 2 bucks and take a trolley to the top in 2 minutes. A cozy restaurant with good service and excellent food. There is Totem park also. A nice place... More

We had a wonderful meal at the Cape Fox Lodge. The Prince of Wales oysters were amazing. Enjoyed the pound of crab! We had heard mixed reviews of the restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised.

The food is delicious, but every time we have gone there, without fail, the staff and customer service is absolutely terrible. Good thing most people who eat here only come for the day to Ketchikan, or they would never come back.

Call first! Paying the 2 bucks each for the trolley only to find out that we couldn't be seated was a waste. BUT we went back the next night and had some delicious French Onion soup that hit the spot on a rainy Ketchikan night. The Bavarian pretzels were yummy and they had my favorite Cider on tap. Nice bar,... More

This place is at the top of the city and has a great view. You can ride the tram up from the city to the lobby of the lodge or take a cab. We had a group of six that they accommodated quickly. The group ordered a large mix of food from the menu and everyone was pleased. The halibut... More
