OK, let's make it simple. Our meal at Chinooks (3 of us) was unanimously, hands down, close the door, game over, the best meal we had during our week in Alaska. Not only was the seafood fresh, it was creatively prepared and presented in a way that surprises you for a waterfront restaurant in a small town. Go there!

Had the 1 lb of King Crab legs ($45). They were great. French onion soup was average. Flourless chocolate cake with peanut butter filling was very very good. Interesting drink menu (I had the corpse reviver). Service was pleasant, friendly and very good. Just a nice place to have dinner. No pretense, just good food.

Upon arriving in Seward, I asked the hotel staff for dinner recommendations. When she suggested eating at Chinook, I was suspicious since it only 2 doors away. Since there was a light rain, we decided to take the recommendation. There was a short wait so we went to the downstairs bar. The bartender was rude - waiting on several other... More

We had dinner (family of four) last night and really enjoyed it. It's nice on the inside- a place where you enjoy the view inside and outside. The house salad was delicious - I ordered the full size and got a pound of king crab legs as a side for dinner. Yes, they were pricey at $37 for just the... More

You won't regret giving this place a try. Be prepared to spend a little bit of money but like anywhere in the summer in AK you will have to do so when eating out. We had fresh Halibut and Salmon and it was superb. They also make really good homemade sodas there that I really enjoyed. The view is incredible... More

It's hard to find places that serve a homemade soup, We were here twice and both times I had the soup of the day which were great! There is a great view of the marina so to have drinks at the bar and look out at the water was our main goal. We enjoyed our time here.

We enjoyed our evening meal with great food and absolutely excellent service even though the restaurant was packed. We chose not to wait for a window table overlooking the harbor and got right in. Both entrees were prepared perfectly as were the sides. Craft beers offered were great and the atmosphere was so enjoyable. The meal was quite pricey but... More

This was the best halibut I have had. Pan-roasted, tender, moist, and the flavors of bacon, lettuce and tomato enhanced it. Also, some of the best sweet potato fries I have eaten. The flourless chocolate cake with whipped cream was mouth-watering. Highly recommend!

Our last evening in Seward was a culinary delight. We dined at the beautiful waterfront Chinooks. The menu had an amazing selection, our waiter described the special appetizer which was to good to pass up. Smoked sable fish and artichoke dip (hot) with grilled sourdough bread. Perfect with a chilled New Zealand Blanc and Alaskan Ale. Next my husband enjoyed... More
