Fantastic Food!

Can not give this place a high enough review. The atmosphere is great, and the food superb. My husband had halibut and I had pork medallions. some of the best food I have ever eaten. If you are in Seward, don't miss out on a meal here!

Our return trip to Seward had to include Chinooks...we missed out previously. We weren't disappointed....great Fish Tacos, amazing Halibut Cheeks and lovely non-alcohol spritzer/mocktails. Our waiter was attentive and alerted us when an otter or a seal was patrolling the waterway just outside. Lovely lunchtime outting.

All the locals know that Chinooks has the best Seafood in Town. They also happen to have the absolute best burger in town too. Very friendly staff, great view of the harbor and several beers on tap. You must try the Green Chili Burger, its just that good!

There are several restaurants in Seward that is not fast food and this is one of them. I like a "real" meal for dinner with wine and this is the place! Food is good here and the service is great! Always crowded so you may have to wait. View is perfect with the mountains, marina, cruise ships and the bay.... More

A great location right on the dock. We had three meals at this place and they all were excellent. Try local fresh oysters they are amazing. Everything on the menu was delicious. Also try a beer sampler, local beer is something you have to try.

I cannot recommend this spot enough. Everything we ate today was spot on delicious. My top recommendations: Poutine with duck and the Mac n' Cheese which was unreal. I'd recommend splitting as those dishes are both hearty and heavy. Everything tasted super fresh. Not a cheap lunch, but worth every penny.
