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.

We had the halibut basket and it was delicious. The chunks of fish are fried, but don't have the typical bready "skin" that you usually see on fried fish. It's a little pricey, but so is every other restaurant in Seward. My husband and I shared a large halibut basket, a basket of tater tots, and each got a cup... More

The bucket of halibut was delicious and they serve it with their homemade tartar and cocktail sauces. Very, very good!

We waited also 30 minutes and never got our food. Others who came in after us got theirs. As we were leaving we got a song and dance about the cook fixing the wrong order. Bartender want us to pay for the coke and tea however the server said not to. It was evident that the kitchen was not organized.

Although like one of the other reviewers, I hadn't expected the halibut to be deep fried. I actually preferred it not battered and thought it was fantastic. The service was very good and as the place filled, it was a merry crowd. I wanted to get a t-shirt but they were out of my size. The waitress offered to mail... More
