Waitstaff is severely lacking and the place is not that impressive overall. Rooms are definitely not worth it. Reminiscent of a 1970's paneled nightmare. The food however is worth the trip. We actually tipped the chef while only leaving standard gratuity for the waitress. Young...More

Located in Haines, Alaska, the Fort Seward Lodge, Restaurant and Saloon was built in 1904 as part of the first U.S military base in Alaska. As the original Post Exchange, the Fort has been a part of the Haines community for over 100 years. The building has gone through many changes and additions over the years, decommissioned in the early 1930's and purchased by a group of retired officers, it started it's long history as a saloon and lodge in the true Alaskan spirit. Currently the lodge operates seasonally, open February - May for Heli-skiing and June - October for summer tourism and fishing. The Fort restaurant and bar is known for good times, good people and good food. Our fresh, local seafood dishes are served up with pride as Alaska offers some of the finest seafood on Earth and Haines is no exception. Our Angus steaks, hand cut to thickness, and delicious local beer will be the perfect fuel for whatever Alaskan adventure you have planned. Come hang out with the locals and enjoy a cocktail on our deck, the view is one of a kind!
