We continually strive for excellence in all we do including our dining experience, despite the fact that we’re 300 miles from the grocery store. Everyday our chef prepares fresh breads, rolls and desserts in our bakery in addition to serving breakfast and dinner in the dining room. Although our goal is to serve you a delicious gourmet meal every time, we pride ourselves on doing so in a comfortable and friendly environment. We want you to feel relaxed, like you’re visiting friends. Therefore, dress is always informal and you will enjoy meals while mingling with the No See Um guides and pilots.
Breakfast is cooked to order with a different special each day of the week. Specials include smoked salmon scramble, blueberry pancakes, and huevos rancheros. The basics; oatmeal, cold cereal, eggs, toast, variety of juices and more are available every day and are also cooked to order. Lunch is prepared fresh in the morning and then carried on the river by your guide.
A typical lunch will contain a sandwich, side dish, chips, snack, fresh baked cookies and hot soup. Depending on the circumstances, a shore lunch of freshly caught fish may even be cooked stream-side by your guide. Dinner is served after an appetizer and cocktail hour.
When the bell rings, dinner begins with a soup or salad course and homemade bread. Main course menus may include dishes like fresh salmon, roasted airline chicken, Alaskan king crab, BBQ Ribs, blackened halibut and smoked prime rib. Dinner is, of course, followed by dessert. Our desserts are made fresh daily and feature beautiful creations like strawberry torte roll, baked Alaska, key lime pie, crème brulee and more. We will gladly accommodate any special dietary needs, but we do require advance notice.
