I ordered a cranberry salad which was delicious. I also ordered Oyster Bay Sauvignon blanc. I ordered brandy Salmon, it was literally just ok. For a $30 meal it should have bed fabulous. It was bland and the veggies we're basically raw. I'd go again but order something else. We went there for the rib special but a large group... More

We shared orders of snowcrab, grilled halibut, breaded halibut, and fresh oysters, along with caesar salads and cups of chowder. Not cheap, but very good. Nice harbor views.

Great place for a steak and or seafood. Myself and 2 other hungry dudes ordered just about everything their was to order for under $200 (no booze) and left stuffed. The seafood chowder was amazing and my steak was perfection. The prime rib that was ordered at our table was juicy and cooked a perfect medium rare. Our waiter seemed... More

Top 3 in Seward for food. Decent menu and good service. Great views of the Alaska sound and surrounding mountains. Try the halibut and the moonshine drink.

I was really disappointed as I read such good reviews about this place. Lots of garlic on all sort of food we had. Maybe was the wrong night for the chef. The restaurant itself has a great location and staff was very friendly.

We sat overlooking Sward Harbor, the mountains and glacier. Good service, good food, prices comparable to other Alaska spots. Loved the seafood chowder. So thick and filling you could make it a meal.

After making the drive from Homer, we were ready to take in a little local color and lunch! We were seated at a table with a great view of the small boat harbor. The soup special of the day was crab bisque, which was outstanding! My dining partner ordered the chowder...equally as good. My portion of seafood linguine was more... More

Food was fresh and delicious. Portion. Sizes were large, service was outstanding, lovely server. Beautiful setting , halibut right out of the water. Creme brûlée was perfect. Met owner at the bar, he loves his own food. We loved Seward
