One of my Favorites in Seward!

Great bar, if you're going for drinks, yummy food if you're going to eat. Old school atmosphere with a jukebox, good service... we went twice!

Best Halibut chunks in town - and we tried several different places and this was hands down our favorite. Get a large bowl! You won't be sorry!

The food was good, not great, but what turned us off was that the restaurant is jammed with wheeled chairs for patrons. Even at about half full, it was hard to get around in there. I can't imagine getting anywhere if all of the chairs were full. My father in-law has some mobility issues and had a really hard time... More

We went on a very busy night and thought we had chosen poorly. Not at all, the waitress brought us water and menu promptly. She was very personable and efficient. Food was served quickly and everything was very tasty. Chicken wings were excellent for a starter. Halibut, burger and ribs were all good. Would go again.

THE place to eat Halibut when in Seward. The atmosphere is interesting with its old collection of liquor bottles and amazing vintage chairs. Look past the exterior and you'll enjoy the best meal ever.

The good; the food, the menu and the service. The menu is simple and the food is straight forward our party had the bacon cheese burger, chicken tenders, seafood chowder, and their famous "Bucket of But" Halibut platter. All was prepared well, served hot and tasted great. The halibut was very lightly breaded in a beer batter and fried. The... More

When we were walking along the sidewalk wondering where to eat dinner, a local told us that this was one of the best restaurants in town. Always trust a local. We were not disappointed. My husband and I really felt like having a steak so we decided on the Steak Sandwich. The meat was very tender and it came with... More

No trip to Seward is compleat with out dinner at Thorns Showcase. The bucket of But is the best deep fried Halibut anywhere on the planet. We have never had a bad dinner there.
