Amazing King Crab

I passed Tracy's King Crab Shack on the way to the boat after a day of whale watching. I am so glad I did, it really was the perfect ending to what had been a brilliant day. The crab is amazing! There are no bells and whistles, you eat off paper plates and the crab was wrapped in paper, you... read more

I was really put off at first - seriously, nearly $40 for a meal on paper plates and eaten at outdoor picnic tables on plastic chairs. But OMGosh! If you go to Juneau, you have to go to Tracy's. The crab bisque is to die for. ALL of the seafood dishes are just absolutely freaking amazing -- the best on... More

We ARE open with a limited menu in the off season at our store from Monday - Friday 11-3pm. (with the exception of the last week in April where we will be closed to get ready for our season.) The full restaurant is open May 1st! Sorry we missed you! More

A nice place to eat a king crab snack. It has a good price and the crabs are delicious. It's a must visit place in Juneau, Alaska.

When I lived in Juneau this was one of the places I made sure I visited every summer. It was often hard to dodge the tourists but I would just take my order to go. I especially love their Crab Bisque. It is so very rich but so delicious! I also like their crab cakes and the sauce they serve... More

Tracy's is not cheap, but the food is sublime and the service top rate! We go there every week because Alaskans need crab and nobody does it better than Tracy! Seriously, the best legs in town

Tracy's Crab Shack has it all. Friendly help. Fantastic atmosphere. Seriously good food. Great, easy location. This is one of my Juneau highlights! The crab bisque over rice is fantastic. The King Crab legs are the best you will ever eat. The only thing I needed that I didn't have was butter that stayed warm. How could they make that... More

Tracy's is a great place for fresh king crab. We ordered the special consisting of crab bisque, king crab claw and crab cakes. Each item was delicious. Everything is cooked fresh to order. Somewhat pricey but no more so than other restaurants in this area. In nice weather you can sit out on the dock and watch the ships traversing... More

If you love crab, you'll love Tracy's King Crab Shack and it is the best bisque I've ever eaten. I would go down as often as possible and get a cup with a nice warm buttered roll and go back to work happy as a clam.
