I went here with a group of co-workers mid week for lunch. Even though it was raining the view was still nice as it is at the docks. The food was a big hit and they had a great beer selection as well. Will definitely recommend this place to others.

Was there in Sept. when things were much less busy and still there was a short wait for tables. Food was excellent, lots of seafood on the menu. A beautiful setting and can walk to all the other places in town from here.

After a day watching whales, puffins and calving glaciers how could we not get off the water and walk right in to Chinooks. We were not disappointed. The King Crab and Halibut were wonderful, service was top notch. The crab sliders were another story, mostly filler so we won't order those again. When we go back next year, definitely returning...

Hubby had the sable fish and he said it was the best he's ever had. Hank our waiter was so nice. Sat by the window with... More

The location of the restaurant is great with lovely view to the port. The king crab legs that my husband ate were excellent, my hamburger was so so... And the service was extremely slow.

Perfect grilled halibut and both the cod and halibut fish and chips excellent. Big windows look out on the small boat harbor.

Dined here for dinner and had a fantastic halibut salad that arrived in a timely manner. We had a table right next to the window overlooking the wharf. Beautiful view. It was a bit pricey, but I know that the tourist season in Seward is short. The only reason that I gave this restaurant a four instead of five is... More

Great sea food, fresh, well prepared and decently served. The restaurant is very cosy. The view across the harbor was fantastic... dining during the sunset was special. Try to get a table by the window. Although my starter (seafood chowder) was about average, I had my first pound of Alaskan king crab in Alaska and it was delicious. I also... More
