Chinooks is located right on Seward's waterfront. Serving a Fresh menu of Alasaka's best seafood. Also serving Steaks and options for vegetarians and gluten free options. A new Sushi bar has been placed upstairs near our huge picture windows to enjoy. We have 12 Alaskan brewed beers on tap with a full bar of premium hard to find spirits, and one of the best Scotch selections in Alaska. A worldly, yet well rounded wine selection is also available.

great food, great service, spectacular views.

We loved it here! The food was excellent, with gluten free and vegetarian options. Wonderful fresh fish and wonderful sides,including quinoa, brown rice, arugula, homemade pickles, etc. Highly recommend!

Needed a quick meal before driving back to Anchorage. Service was good, the menu fine. I had halibut cheeks, my favorite part of the fish, that were some of the best I've had. And not too pricey, but from the starter menu. I suggest the starter menu. The portions are pretty large (except for crab legs). What I simply could... More

They have a "kids menu" which is more than many restaurants we've been to this trip. Unfortunately, my 8 and 9-year old kids were both still hungry after eating their chicken strips and fruit. My wife had salmon which was ok, My rockfish was probably the best thing on the table -- very good. But the quinoa (served with the... More

The seafood choices were different than you can get in the lower 48. We enjoyed these selections and be prepared for a price premium at this restaurant but it was worth it. We did have to wait a bit of time without reservations on a Monday night. You can go to the fishing wharf next door. The upstairs dining area... More

After watching the local fisherman come right up to the back of the restaurant with there prized catches of halibut n salmon we gave this place a try.You will not have a fresher plate of seafood anywhere!! Most people here in the lower 48 have cod or talipia when it comes to fish n chips for dinner. They use halibut... More

Chinooks has a wide variety of food selections but their seafood selection is amazing. We have gone a couple times and it is always cooked perfectly. The staff is friendly and service is prompt. The king crab and halibut is great!

This was our first meal in Seward and we made a good choice. Good, solid food all the way around. They were out of beer I wanted but after experiencing the same thing in other restaurants I can't blame them. Lamb sliders were delicious. Fish and chips halibut was good. Crab cakes were tasty but small. Prices were in line... More

Decided to try Chinooks for the first time during our travels through Seward. And let me tell you I'm glad we stopped there! All the food my group had was fresh and delicious. Especially the Smoked Scallop Macaroni and Cheese. This was the best Mac n' Cheese I have EVER had, I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting there... More
