Let's start by stating the fact that Alaska is beyond expensive... as in New York City expensive, especially for food. Since everything you eat here needs to be shipped in from somewhere else, expect to pay premium prices, often for mediocre food quality and service. Well, the Smoke Shack blew all that out of the water. This was the first... More

Huevos Rancheros were best ever. We were sad the crab benedict was sold out by the time we got there (7:15 am) but very happy with what we had.

We ate there 3 of 4 days, I think, and one day we stopped in twice. BEST BISCUITS'n GRAVY this writer has ever consumed - ordered on 2 trips. Good fish tacos, french toast with eggs and bacos. Always ordered take-out.

We came here for lunch. Loved the shrimp tacos, reuben sandwich was good. Friendly service. If you are in the mood for some BBQ, this is worth checking out.

This place serves unusual food such as Cajun shrimp tacos. They also serve hamburgers for those not ready to try something different. Located in a train car with limited seating. Some setting outdoors but only in the best weather. We sat outside for awhile until an inside table opened and it was a bit chilly. Waitress was great. Service excellent... More

We are annual summer-time residents of Seward and have eaten at all the popular local restaurants. The Smoke Shack consistently serves up Seward's best food - although recently the Seward Brewing Company has been giving them a run for their money. The Smoke Shack specializes in incredibly light, fluffy smoked salmon fritadas, aromatic smoked chicken burritos and lots more. The... More

There's nothing better than going into the Smoke Shack on a lazy morning, sitting down with a cup of coffee and ordering a breakfast burrito. Vicky always goes out of her way to make us feel at home, and I must say that this is the best breakfast in town!
