A bit out of the way, Glacier Bear Lodge (907/784-3202, www.glacierbearlodge.com , daily 9 a.m.–2 p.m. and 6–10 p.m. summer; Sat.–Sun. 9 a.m.–2 p.m. and 6–10 p.m. winter) has a full-service restaurant with big breakfasts (including corned beef and hash), lunchtime burgers, wraps, salads, and halibut tacos, along with nightly specials ($19–22) and a popular Saturday-night prime rib ($29). Unfortunately, smoke from the downstairs lounge spreads into the restaurant.
For lunchtime sandwiches and soups—served from 11:30 a.m. until they run out—head to Fat Grandma’s (907/784-3395, $5–12). The shop also has locally made Native Alaskan arts and a free book-trading library of sorts.
Next to the airport, Yakutat Lodge (907/784-3232 or 800/925-8828, www.yakutatlodge.com , daily 6 a.m.–3 p.m. and 5–10 p.m. Apr.–Oct.) is open for three meals a day, with the usual breakfast fare along with lunchtime sandwiches and burgers for $7–12. Steaks and seafood fill the evening menu, from $13 halibut and chips to $32 T-bone steaks. There’s a bar, free Wi-Fi, and several packs’ worth of cigarette smoke wafting over from the lounge.
Find groceries, supplies, espresso, and ATMs at Mallott’s General Store (907/784-3355) and AC Store (907/272-4600, www.alaskacommercial.com ). AC has a deli with pizzas, and Mallott’s sells fresh sushi.
