More on the Crystal Creek Lodge dining experience 🎥

Our food philosophy emphasizes fresh and, whenever possible, local ingredients.  We gather the highest quality ingredients available, then prepare and serve delicious meals. Our chefs have complete freedom to create, and they use whatever inspiration hits them for the day, along with the ingredients immediately fresh and available from purveyors and our greenhouse.

Foods from the land and the seas surrounding Alaska are featured whenever possible. We buy fresh garden vegetables, herbs, and potatoes from Alaska farms and fresh Alaskan salmon, halibut, King Crab, Kachemak Bay oysters, Spot Shrimp, and scallops. We also love land meats and feature beef, chicken, duck, pork, and lamb from Alaska growers prepared in various fashions and served alongside the seafood. Being at the apex of the Pacific Rim, we will feature Asian and West Coast culinary styles along with some twists on classics of continental Europe.

Our salmon is fresh yet if you would like to dine on salmon you caught or wild duck or ptarmigan you harvested, our kitchen staff will create a memorable meal or hors d’oeuvres on request.

You, Heather, Alex, the guides and staff were terrific! The culinary exposition was fabulous, best ever!! I came home exhausted, delighted and fatter than ever :). The trip was such a refreshing break from all the current challenges life presents. You do realize, I hope, that you and your staff are “menders” of souls.
