This casual restaurant at the Alaska Glacier Lodge is focused on providing fresh, Alaska-grown ingredients while also serving up amazing views of mountains and the glacier river valley.

The Experience

Dining room of Raven's Perch Restaurant with large windows letting in lots of natural light.

Dine in the indoor dining area with huge picture windows, or on the outdoor deck.

Just a 45-minute drive from Anchorage, Raven’s Perch lies within the main lodge at the cozy Alaska Glacier Lodge, with big windows and an outdoor deck looking out to a spectacular view.

The warm environment of Raven’s Perch highlights local culture and history—you’ll find imagery of glaciers and agricultural history, and you can watch helicopters taking off and heading out to the glacier, then landing back at the lodge.

The view from the outdoor deck is hard to beat. Whether you are staying at the lodge, heading out to have a cold beverage in the sun, or planning to have lunch or dinner, come enjoy the view from the Raven’s Perch Bar & Grill.

The Meals

Lodge guests are welcome to start their day off with a complimentary breakfast served in the Raven’s Perch each morning from 7:00 AM – 10:00 AM. Pop in and indulge yourself with a light breakfast including multiple options such as scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits & gravy, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice, and milk prior to embarking on your Alaskan summer activities for the day.

Raven’s Perch opens to the public for lunch and dinner service at 11:00 AM daily. Order from the new Raven’s Perch Bar & Grill menu with a few tasty appetizers, soups & salads, burgers & flatbreads, and entrees to choose from, there is certainly something for just about any appetite. For some, a cold beverage in the sun on the deck might be just what the doctor ordered! They serve multiple varieties of locally brewed beer from regional Alaskan breweries.

Reservations are highly recommended for dinner service. Go ahead, take a scenic drive out to the end of Knik River Road as you watch for moose and enjoy the beautiful sunset colors over the Knik River Valley.

You’ll also find a rotating menu for dessert. There’s always a carrot cake, made with amazingly sweet Alaskan-grown carrots. You can also find Alaskan-made ice cream, with fireweed honey and blueberry flavors. Toward the end of the summer when berries are available, you can often find a berry cobbler—the perfect ending to a perfect meal.
