The Alaska Fish House is easily Ketchikan's first choice for fresh Alaskan seafood. Visit us at the end of Main Street, just a short walk from the cruise ship docks. Enjoy gourmet seafood dining next to the most historic fishing fleet in Ketchikan. Try a complimentary sample of our delicious smoked salmon corn bread while ordering from our menu featuring alder-grilled salmon, halibut & chips, crab, and our famous smoked salmon chowder. Ship home the same smoked salmon that we feature on our menu.

When you see the locals eating here, you know it's good! Yes, it's busy. Yes, it's a little price. But you know what? It's worth it!

This is a busy place when ships are in port. Food is good quality, prepared fast, and service is very good. I had salmon sticks that were great!

We stopped here based on trip advisor reviews on our disney cruise. This place was great, here's what you need to know: 1. Must try the fish and chips. Got a 3-piece cod for the kids (very reasonably priced), and a halibut for me. Fresh fish, crispy breading which was amazing. 2. It's relatively fast but not fast food. You... More

A local told us to stop in here after browsing like a sheep through the shops downtown. Great recommendation! We both ordered shrimp, crab and chowder, thinking we'd still be hungry, but the portions were large and the food was fantastic. The restaurant is right on the harbor and perfectly located for those who are wandering the downtown shops.

Fantastic king crab legs. Halibut sandwich and chips was good. Hamburgers were tasty too. Would stop again for the crab.

Food quality was outstanding. Price was outrageously expensive and we had to wait 40 minutes -- 20 in line (understandable) and 20 for food which was only Fish&Chips and Fish Sandwich. On top of that we paid over $45 for just. Those two lunch items!

After strolling thru town and great local place to eat lunch. Order at the counter and there are many types of fish to choose from! Our daughter had a hamburger...lol. Fish tacos and halibut were great. A little kick in the coleslaw.

You must stop here for lunch! My wife had the salmon--the best of our trip! A local recommended the place so we gave it a shot. It made our afternoon perfect, sitting on the dock, taking in the scenery and enjoying so really good food!!

(Yes, I know, this is a restaurant in the port, not on the ship - that's the point) We stopped here for a late lunch after a kayak trip with Southeast Sea Kayaks (local booking, not through cruise line) on the recommendation of our boat skipper. He came up from the boat not long after we did and stopped in... More
