Delicious!!

We ate at Chinooks for dinner 2 days ago. Not only was the food delicious but they accept reservations which is a big plus for a party of 12!! King crab was the best I've ever had. Service wasn't good but I think they were overwhelmed by the crowd on July 4th weekend.

We stopped in to Chinooks thanks to the ratings here. Not sure why, but we were gifted with supercilious service that bordered on contempt, both from the "greeter" who strangely refused to answer any questions about the menu and from our server, who gave us the distinct impression he considered us to be tourist rubes whose seats could easily be...

We ate here on our last night in Seward. The food was just okay. The red salmon was dry. Our server was very friendly, but we saw very little of her. This was very frustrating.

Stopped here to have lunch between our train ride and our bay adventure. We had crab, scallops, and fish. Everything was fresh and delicious. We had a window seat, so we were able to enjoy all the boats and the dock. It's a bit pricey, but was everything we were looking for in Seward.

The food and view are excellent. The only thing keeping this restaurant from getting a five-star rating is the interior decor. It is fine for a family gathering or a casual dinner, but it is not like a fine restaurant in a bigger city. Nonetheless, this is the best restaurant in Seward and the food will not disappoint!

The meal was good but expensive, even for Alaska, the drinks were very good. When you are sitting 50 yards from the ocean, you expect the seafood to be a little cheaper than at the grocery store. I'd recommend Ray's next door.

My husband and I both ordered the salmon. It was the absolute best salmon I've ever had in my entire life! So fresh! It was probably swimming that morning when I arrived in Seward. With it came quinoa and asparagus. I don't like asparagus and the quinoa just seemed like a 'filler,' but the salmon was excellent. At market price,... More

Smelled kind of fishy (yeah I know it's a fish restaurant) ...wait staff was arguing among themselves. customers were complaining and we were told it would be a 45 minute wait. We decided to move on and try somewhere else.

So now we are reviewing by walking by a place? That's like flying over your hometown and saying it's ugly and full of uneducated morons. It might smell like fish around the harbor of which we are located. It's the third largest fishing port in the U.S. As far as our arguing staff, how do you know they worked there?... More

The mussels are great, if you order them they will blow your minds. The king krab legs are good that has a butter sauce and next to the sauce is a piece of lemon. So you can mix the butter and the lemon.
