Dining options are few when traveling around Alaska's Bush; smaller communities may have one or two eateries, if any at all. On the bright side, you won't need to worry about reservations. If they're open, they'll let you in, and you'll likely be surprised at the variety of foods available. In addition to Alaska seafood, game, and locally grown vegetables, Mexican and Asian fare are standard, even in the state's remotest corners. Most Bush restaurants feature two or three different cuisines, and many deliver. All food prices, including those at small grocery stores, reflect the high transportation charges, so be prepared to pay more than you would back home or even in Anchorage. Since many of these Bush restaurants will shut down for periods of time, particularly during the shoulder seasons, it never hurts to ask a local or call the eatery to confirm it's open before heading over.
