Pricy but good

On the boardwalk/pier near the cruiseport. Typical tourist trap, but the crab roll was fresh and good and the beer (from Alaskan) was also good. Would I eat there again? Yes. Would I cry if I missed it? No.

The food was awesome and the size of the King Crab was huge and tasty! I was in heaven!!!! I recommend this for delicious crab legs, crab cakes and seafood. What a treat! There is a large outdoor seating area to sit down and eat your food. I highly recommend this place.

If you have not had crab before they have great options to try the various ways it is prepared. Street cafe style but good fun. Beer and wine were available.

Crab legs were delicious but overall it was very expensive. 4 small crab cakes, small bowl of bisque, 1 crab leg and a stale weird tasting roll for $35.

Great food. Convenient..but expensive for lunch. Close to ships, another souvenir to be had! Great choice of local beers. Nice view of the hull of your cruise ship!

I wanted to eat at Tracy's ever since I met a couple who used to live in Juneau. I was not disappointed one bit. King crab legs are not cheap just because you're on the coast of Alaska but they are so worth it. I got the combo which came with 1 1/2 crab legs, crab chowder and crab cakes.... More

Tracy's is located right on the dock in Juneau. I had the single crab leg (although they gave me two!) which is served with 2 rolls and butter. Tracy's is kind of pricey but well worth the money. This was easily the best crab I've ever eaten. Eating at Tracy's is an experience you don't want to miss if you're... More

This place is a must. In Alaska, you have to eat part of a king crab, and here is where you should eat it. Fresh, sweet and huge, it's the perfect crab experience. So yummy!!!
