Dining at the Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge

As part of your stay at the remote Fox Island, you'll enjoy innovative meals infused with seasonal ingredients found around the Pacific Northwest, served with exceptional service and stunning views of Resurrection Bay.

Comfortable and memorable fine dining means you experience the food and meet the chefs themselves. Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge is about the peaceful serenity of Fox Island, the lush greenery of the surrounding forest and the wide-open Alaska skies above.

Dining on Fox Island is unique, personal, fresh and exciting. Between meals, you can relax in the comfortable lodge, or kick back on the deck enjoying the view and scouting for wildlife. Sip on a glass of wine, try an appetizer and chat with your companions or fellow guests—there’s plenty to do (and not do) on Fox Island.

Fox Island Chef Matthew Serfass

We are very excited about and inspired by the experience and flare Chef Matthew has brought to Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge.
Seeking adventure only to be found in Alaska and to fulfill a desire to work with fresh, local Alaskan seafood, Chef Matthew Serfass joined Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge after experience garnered at the Riverside Grill as a menu consultant back in his home state of Tennessee.

He started his culinary career right out of college opening a family owned restaurant in Naples, Florida, where he worked as the Executive Chef. After eight years with the family, he left sunny Florida for the hustle of New York City. He worked under Chef Ben Pollinger at Oceana, one of New York's finest seafood establishments. To expand his knowledge in restaurant management, he worked for the past three years as a traveling culinary manager for Bonefish Grill back in the deep South.

Executive Chef Jason Kuehl, based in Seward, facilitates the culinary cuisine for Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge—preparing pastries, ordering fine Alaska seafood and coordinating delivery to the remote island lodge.
