The Amazing Little White Box

I had been on Ketchikan previously and was hoping this place was still here.....and thankfully it was. The area has definitely changed since last time but that little white pillbox was right on where it was last time I visited. Halibut sandwich was amazing and the sweet potato fries even better!

This place was recommended to us by the owner of a local kayak company. My wife and I each ordered a mushroom/swiss burger with fries and asked that they deliver it to us across the street on the deck of the Arctic bar (evidently a lot of the locals routinely do this so they can have a beer with their...

Their halibut burger is truly the best thing I've ever eaten in my entire life! Big, hot, on good bread, with crunchy lettuce. YUM!

Very rustic, simple and great food. Had a cheese burger onion rings and both were excellent. The building is a 'Shack' this is not fine dining. But the food is worth a visit.

Just an incredible little "find" right near "the tunnel" to Creek Street in Ketchikan. Very walkable from the "pier" if on a cruise. Really a local haunt AND a haunt for the cruise staff! Has a couple of outside tables and only about 5 inside…but I will tell you, one of the best grilled hamburgers we have ever had! Made... More

A friend who used to work on ships recommended this place to me and didn't dissapoint. Straight forward service - I loved how the waitress said to the next customer "I'm sorry sir you will have to wait we have a full grill !" The burgers were delicious and you can even eat them at the bar next door and... More

This is a little shack just a five-minute walk outside of the city limit....still close enough to get to and worth it if you have time. The burgers here are amazing. Don't expect quick service....we waited about 30 minutes for two burgers and an order of fries. This is the norm, and they post signs telling you not to order... More

Tiny little burger den. Maybe 4 tables at most??? We were there w/ our kids (9, 11). Very nice staff - very accommodating. Onion rings and milkshakes are really good. Great local place.
