Gold Creek Salmon Bake Tour

Attention Norwegian guests and guests docking at the AJ dock. Please be advised this tour must begin at least 45 minutes from after your arrival to Juneau as you will be docking outside of town and will need to take a shuttle to Downtown Juneau.

The Salmon Bake is the Alaskan version of the All-American Barbecue and since 1978 our Salmon Bake has been grilling up nothing but perfection! This all-you-can-eat buffet includes clam chowder, Alderwood-grilled wild salmon, BBQ ribs, baked beans with reindeer sausage, wild rice pilaf, a selection of side dishes, salads, and cornbread. Vegetarian or gluten-free? There's plenty to tempt your palate! Don't forget to save room for not only the homemade blueberry cake but also the fresh S'mores by the fire!

Hike up the short trail up to the gorgeous Salmon Creek Falls and the entrance of the famous Wagner Mine. Take in the breathtaking scenery of Gold Creek circling around the Salmon Bake, and if you're lucky you may even see some salmon swimming upstream. Don't forget to take some pictures with the interactive gold rush mural!

The food, ambiance, live music, and activities make our Salmon Bake much more than a meal. It's a full experience you aren't sure to forget!

Buses depart back to the pier every 15-20 minutes. Beer and wine are available for purchase.

Customer Reviews
Jul 2023 - Brenda H.

After waiting for an overflow vehicle to transport us to the location, everything went well. The food was tasty and plentiful.

Jul 2023 - Michael B.

Food was good and the walk to the waterfall was interesting. But 3-stars because of the huge number of people there brought in from all over ruined the feeling of intimacy. They fed 6,000 people on the day we were there.

Aug 2022 - John M.

My excursion was the glacier tour followed by salmon bake. Our tour guide was excellent. Great photos at the glacier. Food at the salmon bake was plentiful and excellent. Highly recommended. Five stars all around.

Jul 2021 - Robert S.

Food was good. There were very few people there so no music or other events happening. Sure this would have been more exciting if a little busier and normal activities going on.
