Get a serving of history along with a classic Alaskan feast. The Gold Creek Salmon Bake, a two-hour experience out of Juneau, has been running for more than 30 years. It’s a great meal and an Alaskan tradition. You’re dispatched from your hotel and brought to a corner of the Southeast Alaska rainforest, which saw lots of activity during Alaska’s Gold Rush.
Set at the top of the Goldbelt Mount Roberts Tramway, the Timberline Bar & Grill offers great views, fresh Alaska seafood, and a variety of lunch and dinner options. After you hike, shop, and enjoy the wildlife on Mount Roberts, dine with a view in the Timberline Bar & Grill.
This Juneau institution comes with a great view: sit and eat or drink while watching float planes come and go. You'll find good pub food, served in big portions (the nachos can serve two). The popularity of this place means it gets crowded, but it's a fun spot with billiards.
