We decided to try this place. the local out front said we picked a good spot and he was right. Wish I had time to eat another meal or two there but the burger I had with orange jalapeño sauce was...

The Smoke Shack was my family's choice for the one meal we ate during a day in Seward. It is an old railcar which is interesting, and impressive insofar as the kitchen occupies a very small space. Portions are very generous and tasty; my daughter and I split a burrito and it was enough for both of us, and we... More

We'd seen great reviews of the Smoke Shack, so this was our midday choice after disembarking the train from Anchorage. Turns out that all of the reviews were quite old; wish I'd noticed that. I have to wonder if it's gone downhill. This is diner food, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I thought the place smelled like dishwater... More

When we asked the locals where we should have breakfast, they asked if we wanted ok, good, better and best. We said the best and they told us we needed to head to the Smoke Shack. We'd seen the place as we drove into town and found it intriguing. The restaurant was in an old WWII railroad car. We were... More

LOVED the Smoke Shack! Husband and I were in Seward for a couple of days and this was our best meal of the trip. Had the pulled pork sandwiches which were super good! Service was excellent, portions were generous. I would make a point to eat here any and every time I visit Seward!

I had the jalapeño burger and wasn't disappointed. Located in an old railcar, the atmosphere is great. We did dinner one night but didn't have time to come back for breakfast; the line was too long. All the locals said this was the best food in Seward and I tend to agree with them!

Seafood is normally what you stop for in Alaska except when your in Seward. We had some great seafood in Seward but just for a change of pace decided to try this place. What a great surprise!! We tried to get in for breakfast but it was packed with a wait of 30 minutes so we decided to come back... More
