I can see why the locals like this!

Great fish and chips and easy to find! Right across from the post office. Limited parking but most of the traffic seemed to be walk up. Did great job with the cruise ship travelers in town

Big Al’s is a food truck parked across from the Haines post office. They have a set menu and some great food! We had the Halibut fish and chips, salmon fish and chips and the Rockfish sandwich. All of these were so good! Since it is a food truck there are a couple of picnic tables for seating. It is... More

Fried fish, nothing special it was fine for what it is, but if you something local and cheap and quick this is better than fast food

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

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!

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!
