I believe this was posted on the wrong property. We are Gustavus Inn in the town of Gustavus. This poster said "Glacier Bay Lodge" Anyway I am happy you had a good time on the Glacier Bay Boat Tour and tour with Strawberry Tours!

Loved the journey getting into this place, which is located within a National Park, we dined here and spent the evening. In the restaurant we feasted on Fresh Salmon, the best I have ever tasted, the crab is really good also.

Gustavus Inn hosted us during our many visits to Gustavus, starting Year 2000 to 2016. The services were outstanding. We fall in love with the Inn. We love the people there.

We actually stayed at the Inn and did eat all our meals there. This is a James Beard award winning dining experience. Turns out other lodges send their guests there and the locals also eat there often. Great experience.

Gustavus is a quirky off the beaten track community and is the gateway to Glacier Bay. For over 30 years, Dave and JoAnn Lesh have honed perfection at Gustavus Inn. Plan to be enchanted by the vegetable and flower garden before dinner. Then grab a...More

After sailing in Glacier Bay, we stopped in Gustavus overnight for dinner. The best part was the salad - an incredible eclectic mix of leaves and flowers from the remarkable vegetable garden (which in itself is instructional for budding gardeners). It was fantastic. The home...More

Description
I am the owner of Gustavus Inn. Our restaurant was named "America's Classic 2010" by the James Beard Foundation. Although we are a hotel, I thought we should appear in the Gustavus, Alaska restaurant listings. We serve dinner nightly to our hotel guests and if we have room, a few extras. Our menus rotate during the week depending on guest preferences. There is only one entree, always seafood and garden bounty. Nightly we feature a foraged wild edible on the bar or table. Meat is served only to accommodate house guests by prior order. Since we prepare everything from scratch onsite, we can happily accommodate dietary restriction with advance notice. My suggestion for dining at the Gustavus Inn is to stay here for guaranteed reservations in the dining room.
