Description: The Narrows Restaurant has panoramic views of the Tongass Narrows waterway. Seasonally, humpback and killer whales pods, bald eagles, kingfishers, great blue heron, mink, harbor seal, and merganzer ducks abound. Cruise ships, float planes, ferries and fishing boats keep things interesting. Our food is fresh, homemade and among the best in town. We specialize in fresh local seafood; especially halibut, king salmon, and world class oysters from Coffman Cove, as well as Angus prime rib beef for dinner. The halibut and chips and the king crab are the largest in town. Our specialties for breakfast include Swedish pancakes with lingonberry butter, Dutch babies, and reindeer sausage. Our soup is always homemade and the seafood chowder is outstanding. We will accommodate any changes necessary for dietary considerations, including Vegan. This winter we are keeping the cost down to $16 with our "Easy on the Wallet" Comfort Food menu which includes Cajun Meatloaf, Jambalaya, Norwegian fish cakes with Shrimp sauce, grilled Ham Steak and homemade Mac n Cheese, among others. We have a Jazz night on Friday nights from 6-8 pm which showcases local talent, at least durng the winter. Please join us.

We spent 4 nights at the Narrows Inn, so we ate in the restaurant a few different times. The food was good, the breakfast servers were lacking. It might have been their first jobs, (it looked like that). We would have been difficult for an experienced waitress, so I give them that. We had different folks,families and their kids arriving...

We stopped here after our motorcycle trip through the Tongass Pass. We arrived just when the lunch hour was ending and they extended their hours. As we were the only people in the restaurant the owner's wife pulled up a chair and talked with us. She also recommended a vegetarian wrap that was very good. We were "lucky" to see... More

A group of friends who regularly have Sunday morning breakfast together have started going back to The Narrows after a pretty long break. It was fairly hit-and-miss before; sometimes we could rely on a good experience, but just as often we left disappointed. However, things are looking up! They have a really good Spanish omelet, they'll cook things to order... More

For starters the views from this restaurant are beautiful. It sits right on the shore with a marina to watch right in front of it. We were having breakfast with a group of five friends so five different dishes were ordered. Mine was just a regular breakfast of eggs, sausage, hash browns and toast. All was cooked perfectly and delicious.... More

This home town restaurant located very close to my B&B, has a terrific view, a variety of food and reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and helpful. Tip: avoid the bar if you are a nonsmoker. The dining room is smoke free.

The only upside to our meal was the waitress. She was attentive without being in your face. She refilled my childrens drinks without being asked and brought us whatever we needed without waiting. Granted, we were the only patrons in the entire place. Now for the list of negative aspects about their food. I ordered the crab stuffed Halibut. It... More
