Stopped in Thorn's for lunch while visiting Seward. The place had a nice retro ambiance with 21st century pricing on the menu items. Got the Bucket of Butts which is apparently their signature dish. A rather small bucket but full of some very tasty Halibut that was cooked well and was not too greasy. That, along with an Alaskan Amber... More

We sat and talked with the locals at the bar for a beer. Lots to look at in this retro place. Worth the visit.

From the moment I walked into Thorn's 5 years ago until my last visit, one week ago the service has been wonderful. Take a deep breath, walk in and look around.. it's no longer smokey and the drinks are just as strong. Grab a seat at the bar or a table, either way you will get to hear the bartender... More

We have been going to Alaska each year for the last 10 years and going to Thorn's at least two times a year for the last five years until this year. We were a little worried about the Bucket of Butts as we saw a cook needed ad for Thorn's prior to going but the Halibut was just as good... More

Had a Halibut basket there yesterday. In a word AWESOME. Just don't go there for a t-shirt. They had a couple of designs that speak local, simple one colour Thorn's shirts and I thought, "hey I like this place I think we are doing a T". Ummm, $30? I don't think so!

Sat at the bar and had a great burger and well priced. Good selection of burgers also! Appeared to be full of locals which is a good sign!

This place had a prime rib special that I had. My partner had the captain's plate. Both were excellent. The price was reasonable and service was terrific. The atmosphere is interesting. There's a lot to see in the restaurant/bar. I would highly recommend this lounge.
