I've been going to this restaurant since 2007. The food is edible and the view is amazing. But this time was very different. My group attempted to pet two dogs that approached to our vehicle as we arrived in the empty parking lot. They obviously...More

Yes, the lodge is a tobacco free property. There are numerous signs around the parking lot stating so. When your group disrespectfully ignored all signs and started smoking you were then scolded for that childish behavior. We all have the right to choose whether we...More

The lodge has a view of the Matanuska glacier, and my wife had been there 30 years before. We stopped for coffee and pie (both excellent) and she sat at the same table (and probably the same chair) to see the glacier again. If you...More

This is a great stop to enjoy the view of the glacier and the taxidermy on display is amazing. Can't actually comment on the food, because the times we have stopped have not been meal time for us. We enjoy the atmosphere and do not...More

I have to be honest that we did not have the 'best' food on our trip, but it was all reasonably good. The restaurant is somewhat remote, it must be hard for them to get fresh produce on a daily basis. We went in the...More
