We have visited the Exit Glacier Salmon bake several times in the past, but we recently got the chance to visit again, this time with our kids (ages 3 and 5). It is the place everyone in Seward will tell you to go for dinner when you ask for a suggestion, and we agree!
We arrived around 6pm and waited about 10 minutes for a table. Once seated, our waitress was a bit slow in getting to us, and the kids were a little impatient after a long day of exploring. When the waitress did arrive, she was quick to realize that the kids were fading fast and offered to put their orders in with our appetizer order. We were amazed with the speed at which the kids' meals (grilled cheese for one, chicken nuggets for the other) appeared. While they were happily refueling, we were able to savor the halibut nuggets, which had to be some of the best we have ever had. Ever. That's saying a lot, as we like to eat seafood.
The hubby enjoyed the selection of local brews, and I liked the selection of wines, both from Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Our meals were quite tasty (the reindeer sausage sandwich, which was a bit spicy, and the salmon bake sandwich, with very moist properly-cooked fish). We splurged and took a couple of desserts to go, which were drool-worthy cheesecakes made right up the highway in Moose Pass.
After the meal, you may choose to take a trip to the pickle barrel for a huge pickle. Our daughter was in heaven!
The restaurant's decor is completely Alaskan outdoorsy, with lots to look at. It's loud enough to drown out kid chatter but not so loud that you can't carry on conversation. We liked the Salmon Bake so much that we considered visiting again the next evening!
