This was a change to dine here after six nights in Kodiak. What we liked was the portions, typical of many eateries, was not overwhelming. It is located on the waterfront which adds to the charm. Not hard to find at all, just drive along Marine Way past the visitors center/ferry terminal. Don't be alarmed if the pavement ends. Hey,... More

Have been to Kodiak 4 times and try to stop here everytime. Love the rolls and dinner on the deck is great.

Sushi was great! Not cheap, mind you; but this is Alaska and everything is expensive. They have paved their parking lot this year, so business appears to be good for them. The place is a bit hard to find, but well worth it.

The food at Powerhouse was terrific -- excellent sushi along with all sorts of other wonderful choices, all with an Asian flavor. Would say the ambiance is anything to write home about, but the food is excellent, and the service is friendly, helpful, attentive, and prompt. This is not within walking distance of the harbor area unless you're up for... More

I found the menu too slanted to fried seafood and sushi. They do have a very large menu and it is a popular place for tourists and locals. Seafood was good and appetizers are also good. Service was good. Prices are average category. Ate here twice will on a group tour.

Books up quick. Make a reservation for dinner and request a table by the water. Really loved the Toro and Yellowtail.

This was my first trip to Kodiak - we came to fish and we were not disappointed, but that's another review. I am a lifelong Alaskan who was raised in a rural area, so I very much understand and even expect the differences one will find in a rural vs urban restaurant. With that said, the Old Powerhouse could do... More

I really enjoyed the sushi I had here for lunch, it tasted very fresh and was very welcome after 3 weeks of camping and eating soggy sandwiches. The service was great, lovely atmosphere.

On a beautiful day you want to be able to sit outside and enjoy the sun. So my friend and I went in search of such a place. The result was in finding this place. Admittedly it's not the easiest place to find by foot but it is worth it. I had edamame and teriyaki chicken. Plus a drink it... More

They have Japanese cuisine, but they also serve great American type food. That is what we ate for dinner. The service was good. The only think we didn't like was the whole table was not served at once. Some got Japanese food and that seemed to take a little longer to prepare. Everyone did say they liked all of the... More
