Gourmet Cuisine


You won’t go hungry at Talaheim because our meals are just as superb as the fishing. Our chef prepares gourmet cuisine daily, featuring many Alaskan favorites and fresh vegetables from our garden.

Breakfasts range from homemade granola and fresh fruit, to eggs Benedict, to cinnamon french toast with spiced applesauce and a side of reindeer sausage.

Lunches are prepared by our chef but meant to eat shore-side. They range from sandwich spreads served on fresh bread, to a variety of salads, salamis and cheeses, followed by homemade cookies. Guides are also known to grill up fresh fish, either a grayling or salmon, upon request.

Appetizers are served once guests return from fishing. Baked brie, smoked salmon dip, and jalapeno poppers are some of our favorites.

Dinners are an experience unto themselves. Crab stuffed flank steak, pepper crusted Alaskan salmon, halibut baked with a rub of garlic, ginger and turmeric. But make sure you leave room for dessert because you won’t want to miss our homemade apple pie and ice cream, Kahlua chocolate cake, or our cream brulee.

As for drinks, we provide Alaskan ale from the tap served in chilled mugs, and a variety of white and red wine. If you’re interested in cocktails, be sure to let us know upon booking.

Breakfasts and dinners are served family style at the main lodge, whereas lunches are served by our guides and enjoyed shore-side.

We can accommodate every dietary restriction with prior notice. Please let us know upon booking so we can adequately prepare for your arrival.





Fresh salmon is served at least once a week, but if you don’t care for it that’s not a problem. Just make sure to tell our chef upon arrival so we can prepare an equally amazing substitute.
Our grocery order is delivered every Saturday by bush plane in preparation for Sunday’s new anglers. So that means all requests need to occur prior to your arrival. But there are often planes arriving from Anchorage mid-week, so if you have a last minute request let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
Chances are you won’t be left hungry because our portions are generous; guests often times request smaller portions. But if you have a craving after a meal there are snacks in the cabin stocked daily, as well as a plethora of other options if you ask our chef.


It was an amazing seven days at Talaheim Lodge. Mark you were incredibly generous with this trip. Little did I know what a special experience it would be. Your guides are the best (I may actually become a real fly fisher) and the rest of the staff friendly, helpful and fun. The dining experience marveled any luxurious restaurant, however, the meat pie was surely a Talaheim Lodge special.

We came with many wishes, and found good dishes and fishes. Good cooking with fish, meat and cake, and Mark’s guiding through rivers and lake. It was one of the best adventures of our lives! Many thanks for the good fishing and fish (dead or alive.) We hope to see you again.
