We took in Juneau on a recent visit on RCL's Rhapsody of the Seas. We skipped the cruise company's excursions and decided to do it on our own and I'm so happy that we did. When we got off the boat, we headed towards the taxis and had the pleasure of meeting up with Ted from Juneau's Taxi Tours. For... More

OMG I don't know where to start! I have never had Crab like that before. Whatever they cook the crab in is amazing where you do not even need butter. You can watch them boil the crab. We even hear them test a batch and they didn't feel like it i was up to standards So it was then going... More

We had to get the King crabs from Tracy's. Awesome crabs, highly preferable than lobster. Next time order the "bucket". The bisque was excellent. Took home the crabcake sauce which was also very tasty. Maybe recreate the experience back home.

I read about this place on Tripadvisor. WOW! Apparently it used to be just a shack. They have expanded but it's still such a cool place. You walk through a gift shop and in the back is the ordering station, a beer station and the food delivery station. It was raining when we went but I think it only added... More

I went on a Carnival cruise to Alaska last week. I saw the review of this restaurant on the TV before I got off the boat. I went Whale Watching that morning in Juneau. I went back to Tracy's on the way back to the boat. It was a very simple atmosphere. It was rainy and cold, but the food... More

The crab legs, while pricey, are totally worth it! There's so much meat on them, and they were utterly delicious! The crab bisque was some of the best I've ever had! There is outdoor seating, and the staff is incredibly friendly.

I will simply say that the crab legs, crab cakes and scallop appetizer were excellent. One of the best meals I have had. The locals recommended this place and they were spot on. The only down side is that the restaurant is pricey. Nonetheless, it's worth it.
