Best Restaurant in Skagway

The fish and chips are EXCELLENT! The halibut was juicy and plump - covered in a deep fried batter. The portion was more than adequate. We started out with New England clam chowder which was very tasty. I enjoyed the thick consistency and lots of clams. Even the fries were very good - not greasy.

The name of the restaurant told us to choose fish and we loved our entrees. We found it amusing that they shipped in Ivar's Clam Chowder all the way from Seattle and our friends enjoyed their bowls of soup. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating and all in all, it was an enjoyable meal.

The Skagway Fish Company was recommended by our B&B and we had an excellent meal there. It was pretty busy in the early evening but did not seem to stay open very late. Very tempted to go back the next evening but it was a little on the wrong side of townfrom where we were staying and we had had... More

Have dined here three previous times during Alaskan cruises and while the food was always good the service was lacking. This time the food AND the service were top notch. The young lady who waited on us never let our glass become empty, checked on us numerous times and had such a nice manner about her. Be sure to have... More

I had the crab legs and they were amazing! My husband really enjoyed the fried shrimp (said they were the best he's ever Tasted) but I felt they were too heavy on the batter. My son had a wonderful cheeseburger. I also enjoyed a beer from Alaskan Brewing Co. I definitely recommend this place. Great food and fast and friendly... More

I stop in at this restaurant for a meal once a year. The non-gimicky dining options in Skagway are few and far between. (The entire town caters to the cruise ship passengers that disembark in the thousands on a daily basis throughout the summer.) After my 6th visit to SFC I'm finished with this place. I've seen it re-locate, redecorate... More

Skagway isn't a big town, but there are several places to eat for all the cruisers. We chose this restaurant because it was relatively close to the cruise dock. The fish and chips was solid; salmon was also flavorful and worthy of ordering.

The food was good enough, but the crabcakes/shrimp/fried fish fillets tasted and appeared like they came from a frozen package. The oysters tasted fresh.

Oh my gosh! We passed through Skagway on cruise ship last week and the food on our ship wasn't very good so we did some asking and were told this place was not to be missed and boy were they right! The halibut fish and chips is like nothing you've ever had before! PHENOMINAL!!!!! To top it off the cocktail... More
