Wonderful Fish and Chips!

This place is recommended by the locals and now I know why! We tried the Rock Fish and chips- I have never tried Rock Fish before but it was wonderful! The portions were enough for two people to share for a nice sized snack!

Good halibut sandwich bit a long wait for the food. Could use a little less of the slaw on it. Great french fries

Small food truck- makes each order as you order. We had rock fish and halibut- 2 pieces of each fish- help yourself to various sauces- eat at the picnic tables but great food for $13!

Just up from the Port Chilkoot Dock in Haines is Big Al's Shack. The best, bar none halibut with panko crumbs and French fries. They have salmon, and other options for seafood, quaint and sit outside style of eating. Delicious halibut!!

Mom really enjoyed her Salmon Sandwich from the Shack. She couldn't believe how tasty it was, and we were glad we stopped by. Only thing I would add: A shady/sheltered spot to wait for our food. We'll be back!

Found Big Al's listed in a few travel books as well as online reviews. Since it was a nice day, we decided to try the fish and chips (actually tried the fried salmon and halibut combo—never had fried salmon before). The food was very good. There are a number of picnic tables to sit down while eating lunch. Not too... More

Finished an excursion and was in search of lunch. We had heard of Big Al's and it was very easy to find. Good food and pretty quick. We had the combo fish and chips. Enjoyed the Alaskan flavor with the fried salmon and halibut combo.

This little trailer stop made the best fried salmon I have ever had! The crunchy crust was so delicious and the fact that they cook to order, your food is guaranteed to be hot and did I mention delicious! THE PLACE to stop by when you're in Haines is Big Al's!

Delicious fish & chips for a great price. Don't turn away because it is in a trailer by the road, stop and eat and you will not be disappointed. We paid $50.00 for fish & chips at the Bamboo room and this was half the price and just as good!!!
