I had the burger and it was good. The building is an old railroad car,a unique setting. They have their own homemade BBQ sauces. They do not serve alcohol.

First and foremost, fabulous food. The homemade hash was a house specialty and deservedly so. 75% of the people ordering this morning had the hash, some locals were recognized as "automatic" hash customers. Coffee was excellent. Service by Vicki was superior thoughtful and caring. Reminded me of a Northern Exposure locals experience. The World War 2 Railroad Car setting on... More

In an old train car, there are only six tables inside, with a few more now available outside. Within walking distance of the harbor, the menu can be a little unpredictable, depending on what's been selling and/or when someone makes a run to replenish. (They were out of the bread for their French toast when we visited at opening time... More

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!
