Incredible fish and chips

Definitely one of the best I've had. The halibut cheeks app was ok and so was the salmon special entree. But the fish and chips was SOOOO amazing, I'm still willing to give this place a 4/5. Service was also really good.

Tried a couple of other places, but this one is definitely #1 the quality of the food was very good, staff friendly, and the place has a good vibe. Honestly the only descent place for a meal in Seward.

Drove from Anchorage to Seward for the weekend, always a nice getaway. This was our third time eating at Chinooks-Waterfront and always good service and great food.

I will return to Seward, Alaska, not only to spend time with my beloved daughter, but to eat fresh caught salmon at Chinooks! Chinooks also provides the most lovely dining view you can imagine as it is right over the harbor in Resurrection Bay, with the mountains across from the bay in view. Very good fresh salmon, and other varieties,... More

Great dinner by the pier. My husband had the smoked chicken appetizer and said it was the best he ever had. I had the salad with fresh salmon and it was excellent. Great service topped off the experience. Too bad we don't live here and get to visit every week.

Went late afternoon, was seated next to the bar but with a nice view of the windows that overlook the marina and the mountains. Service was good and fast. I had a Hard Cider Ale ($6?), cup of chowder ($8!), and 2 crab cakes ($13). Everything was good and of course you pay for the view. Very well localized.

This place is one of the best restaurants I have been to. The staff is so friendly and the food is amazing. Try to get a table by the window because it is beautiful to look out at the water and all the boats.

Beautiful view, great service, decent food. I had the halibut BLT with Seafood chowder. The chowder was good with a little salt but the sandwich was just ok. I think though that I may have just Made the wrong choice. I will try this place again though for sure. The waiter was really helpful! The only real complaint I had... More

This place serves good food and has friendly service. The atmosphere is relaxed and it appeared that many locals ate there for lunch.

Seafood was good and view of harbor outstanding. Good service. Be aware that nothing is fresh unless listed at the door; everything else is flash frozen as with nearly every other restaurant in the US, even though this is the headquarters of a huge fishing fleet.
