Had been boasting for 2 years that this place had the best halibut and chips in the Southeast - batter reminded me of an old seafood chain Arthur Treacher's, which I LOVED. So disappointed with last visit - Fish had an almost hush-puppy bread-type batter which completely masked the taste of the halibut. Chips weren't quite cooked through. Although a... More

So from the onset the restaurant doesn't look like much but, the menu is diverse and the food is good! We each had a burger and the salmon soup was a treat. Bottom line: don't judge a book by its cover

Read a book where Haines author mentioned The Bamboo Room several times. So we figured she lives here and frequents this restaurant, so it must be good. Well, we should have listened to TA opinions instead.. The food was edible but that was it. The server was ok, the other patrons( Haines residents of course) very friendly as were all... More

When we got into Haines, we had a bit of time to kill waiting to pick up our rental car. We decided to walk up the street to this restaurant, and order some lunch. My wife and I opted to split an order of fish and chips. Yummy!! Nice simple diner style place, clean with good food! Best fish and... More

We stayed in Haines two days and had breakfast at the Bamboo Room based on the recommendation of our hotel staff. It was a short walk from the hotel (everything is!) and fun to look at the different shops on the way. The restaurant has a small dining room that has old photos and other memorabilia. Our server both days... More

Came here for breakfast after a long drive on recommendation. We were seated quickly but service wasn't the fastest - although only one server was on. The food was reasonable but it was expensive. I'm not sure if we just got an average day but have had better and cheaper breakfasts.

We used to eat here quite often when on vacation. This time around, the experience was less than satisfying. We had ordered halibut and chips, and the fish was raw and runny on the inside when we started to eat--quite a turn- off. The waitress was more interested in chatting with friends than serving other customers, though she was friendly... More

Typical diner food. Fried salmon was excellent. Really friendly service. Recommended for the family.
