Had the veggie breakfast burrito for Sunday brunch and couldn't have been more satisfied! Thanks you!

Loved escaping into a warm, hickory-smoke-smelling railcar for lunch on a cold, drizzly day in Jan! I live in Atlanta and never dreamed I'd find this kind of tender pork BBQ with 6 different sweet and savory sauce options in AK! The bread for my BBQ sandwich was tender and delicious and the service was pleasant and helpful. You won't... More

Breakfast is great. Big (eggs and pancakes) or just a cup of coffee, a "dining car" experience- yes even to the point of closeness with your party in space! Seems like the place is always busy, even late in the afternoon when we went by later in the day.

By the looks of it, we thought it would be average food, with average service, but were pleasantly surprised. Very small inside, six tables - the kitchen takes up half the train car. The Smoked Green Chili Burrito ($13.00) was excellent - wanted to go back the next day for another. Worth a stop, for sure.

I was tempted to light this place on fire after our craptacular "meal" but didn't want to see Seward jail. DO NOT GO HERE!!! Background: So we are not picky eaters, or jerks, or impatient. We have been all over and eaten in shacks, shady noodle joints, and places with long lines out the door. So what I don't understand... More

Some of the best casual food that we have ever enjoyed was in the Smoke Shack in Seward, Alaska. Located at the end of town on the dock, the restaurant is in an old train car. You enter the restaurant from the deck (back side) not the front. A very small restaurant there are only 6 wooden booths in side... More

We went here for breakfast on a Friday morning and it was delicious! There was even outdoor seating! Since there was a bike shop right next door, we rented bikes to ride out to the glacier and work off that yummy breakfast.

This is a casual dining place in an old train. Service and food is very good. We had the special - fish tacos, which were excellent.

Smoky, steamy little shack. Two good sandwiches and two fairly poor. Service quite slow considering there were four staff members for only six tables!

Every time we come to Alaska we go here to eat. The restaurant is unique being in a railroad car. It is very small with limited seating. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. One of the specials today was a smoked chicken burrito with goat cheese & green sauce. It came with a fresh salad of... More
