Always Delicious and Best Service

Mark and Mary own the Seward Hotel downtown Seward and have created this little fine dining experience in their establishment. It has a great old fashioned feel to it, but there is nothing old fashioned about the food. The service is old fashioned, though, because it is awesome! What you used to... read more

The food is so good, we had breakfast both mornings, and had a great time talking with the staff. Great quiet place to sit and relax as well.

We checked out the restaurant as well as some others in town . It was quiet and quaint on our earlier visit so we went back. Unfortunately, the few tables are in a bar area and a football game was on the TV and several of the drinkers were hooting and hollering. You could not help in hearing their conversations.... More

Ate at Ms. Genes Place twice and the food and service (Matt G.) was excellent. The New Zealand Lamb Chose were delicious along with the Clam Chowder.

Restaurant is actually 4-5 tables located in the bar area of this lovely Victorian style hotel. We were staying there and had a late evening meal. Bartender is also the waiter (he also helps with the luggage, plumbing repairs, and electrical repairs...). Food is somewhat upscale, but not terribly special. The exception in our meal was an ahi tuna appetizer... More

We ate breakfast here and returned the next morning, driving from the small boat harbor area to do so. We particularly enjoyed the focus on a somewhat more healthy menu, with good omelet options and a nice selection of fresh fruit instead of hash browns. The coffee and water were free flowing. The tables by the windows in the bar... More

We tried this place because we were staying in the hotel and it was early. Food was nothing but average, but the service was the worst we experienced in Alaska. The waiter not only took over fifteen minutes to greet us and give us menus...and another ten to come back and take our order, but forgot our order and never... More

Mrs. Genes Place on Fifth Avenue is Seward, Alaska is one of our favorite Seward restaurants. First, the Hotel Seward is a re-modeled Victorian hotel, bar, and restaurant. The public place is great as well. Please do not visit Mrs. Genes Place for the plebian burgers and pizza. Tiny Seward has an abundance of burger and pizza joint . An... More

Hotel Seward have preserved and presented the history of of Seward for all patrons to enjoy. All that before enjoying the most amazing meal of seared Alaskan scallops on a bed of salad and the best risotto ever. My dining companions can give excellent reports also. What a shame we leave today.

Great variety on the menu but we wanted some burgers & sandwiches for dinner. So you have to ask for that menu specifically at dinner time. The pizza and burgers/sandwiches were all good. Cute place, very romantic and a really cool bar!
