Chinooks Restaurant was recommended to us by our hostess at the B and B we stayed in. It was a good choice. The food was good and the prices were in line with other restaurants we ate in while in Alaska. The restaurant is located right on the harbor so the scenery is pretty.

The food here is excellent! There must be a culinary school nearby. I had the halibut. My grandson had salmon, while my granddaughter had king crab and my daughter had the sablefish. All great! The deserts were also excellent and the scenery was very relaxing.

We tried Chinooks hoping for some really good seafood and a great view of the harbor and were not disappointed. We had a reservation for our party of 8 and were seated immediately upon arrival. The place was busy and although our waiter was attentive , the arrival of waters, drinks, salads , appetizers, and then finally our meal was... More

We had to wait for a table for dinner on Friday night, but the place was very busy. Worth the wait as we got a table near the windows with a great view of the harbor. This is a nice restaurant with a good menu; prices are not cheap but did not seem out of line with what we pay... More

We ate here after a long boat ride. Had drinks at the bar, then got a great window seat overlooking the water. Got to see everyone coming in, cleaning their fish and their boats. We enjoyed the meal and a perfect atmosphere to unwind.

We chose to eat at Chinook after very positive reviews but the evening turned out to be much less than satisfactory. We were asked to wait for a table when obviously there were tables available and    then given a place in the center away from the window while tables by the window were empty. The food was very expensive... More

Thank you for your recent visit. we hope you thoroughly enjoyed your time in Alaska. We have a concise menu that has quite a number of options for anyone looking for exceptional Alaskan seafood. We prepare our fish so that it is the Star of the dish. Unfortunately most people are used to fish with lots of sauces and dressings... More

The food quality was not anywhere near what the prices would lead you to believe. I dont mind paying top prices for a good meal , but this was a very average meal.

Chinooks has delicious salads, a great beer and wine selection, and possibly the best view in town! I've watched otters and eagles many a time, while enjoying a tasty meal.

We went for dinner. We had to wait 30 minutes before seated. The chicken wing starters were delicious. The salmon was good -maybe a little dry- but with 33 USD overpriced. Once seated the starters and main dishes were served in good time. Nice atmosphere directly at the waterfront with a huge window front overlooking the port. Service was nice.
