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.

Good meal right on the water

After spending a day in Seward we visited Chinook's. The food was good, the service was excellent and it was a good value. Being at the marina was a plus to watch the boat and there is a beautiful view of the bay.

Chinooks is by far my favorite place to eat in Seward! The views are amazing no matter where you sit, as they have large windows overlooking the harbor. The food is also some of the best I have had in Alaska. Even if you order their appetizers and share between a table there is plenty of food, the servings are... More

We spent the weekend in Seward for New Years. This was one of the few restaurants that stays open year round. We were a group of 6 and never had any trouble getting a table. We ended up eating here 3 times over the weekend. The menu was awesome and everything our group tried they loved! The hostess, waitresses, and... More

You can't beat the views of the Seward Harbor offered at Chinooks. The food is worth a visit, but it is pricey (20-30 an entree). I would highly recommend the Beef Chopped Salad or the Scallop Mac n Cheese. If you aren't a seafood fan, the menu is a bit limited, but they do offer sandwiches and burgers. Chinooks is... More

June 2015 My friend and I ate here expecting we would get a good steak, since neither of us eat fish. Ugh! There are no steaks, only fish. We both decided to order the fish and chips, knowing we could drown the fish in tartar sauce. Chinooks turned both of us into fish eaters. Wow! Our food was delicious! Four... More

We had an excellent seafood meal here our first night in Seward which was a Saturday and the place was buzzing. We were shown to the upstairs bar whilst awaiting our table and enjoyed the people-watching during our 2 drink wait. We took our second drinks to the table which had a lovely view over the harbor. The seafood was... More

We went to Chinooks after a long day of kayaking, and enjoyed relaxing on the second floor of the restaurant, drinking beers and watching otters in the harbor. The food was really good (I had halibut), but it was fairly pricey. And the service wasn't great. Still, this is a restaurant that looks like a "harbor hangout" but is much,... More
