LOVE the Crab Bisque

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.

The crab is wonderful. The new location is so much better than the past. Whenever I go the place in packed to the point of discomfort. No tables. Other people competing for a seat. Others never leaving when they are done. I get confused ordering and end up paying way to much for such an uncomfortable meal and eating with... More

If you love crab, this is the place! The crab is fresh--they have lots to chose from on the menu beside just legs. One thing, you must know, crab isn't cheap so be prepared.

If you came to Alaska looking to try some famed crab, whether it is King, Dungeness, or snow crab, Tracy's has got you covered. The only way to find it better is by catching it yourself! It is simple and spot on. The bisque is wonderful, and the new pavilion is a great place to escape the rain for a... More

My husband and I do not care for chain restaurants or tourists traps. We were hesitant to go in with their large gift shop because we were afraid it was a tourists trap. But, we went in anyway and had a wonderful meal. We met a couple who been coming back to Tracy's King Crab Shack for years. They told... More

It wasn't cheap but the King Crab legs I had were the most delicious I've ever had. It's an outdoor place with shelter from the drizzle. I was happy to have a good warm jacket and it was July! It's not a fancy place but the food was fabulous.

What great crab. Very casual set up. The crab was the best I have ever had. We were there for lunch so it was a little tough to find a seat. We did finally find a table to share with a few other people. Great to watch how they prepare the king crab legs. This should not be missed.

Tracy's consistently has the best crab bisque, crab cakes and crab legs in Juneau. Not cheap, but well worth every penny!

Stopped for dinner before getting back on cruise ship. You order the crab at one shack and get your drink at another. It was raining but we were lucky to get a seat in front of the cook shack and were entertained by watching the chief cooking the crab in large pots. I don't think I can eat crab in... More

As we got off our cruise ship, we approached this cute outdoor restaurant. The food was delicious a bit pricey but definitely worth it! Tried there king crab of course and a few other things. Very delicious! I completely missed the gift shop, a bigger sign would have been nice! I will definitely eat there again once I return!
