“not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Overcooked, dried out hamburger with good fries. The halibut fish and chips were the worst of the trip. Would not return.

“Agree with SkyHighTravelLover: Too expensive for average bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We wanted authentic halibut so we found ourselves at Terry's Fish & Chips. We were shocked by the prices, but decided that since we were on vacation, we'd give it a try. Our tab was $80 and only one of us (of 4 people) ordered the $22 halibut and chips. It was just average. Not bad, but not worth the price. I'm not a former employee or a sour grape reviewer, in fact, I'd never even been in Seward before, I just give my honest opinion and thought that is what the purpose of Trip Advisor was. Service was average. Again, not bad, just . . . disappointingly average. I'd try another restaurant next time.

“Fish quality varies but very good on the whole....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We thought salmon would be the mainstay of the fish restaurant business here in Seward Harbour but it's Halibut that is the most common and the more expensive of the two. Having said that, the meals here were very good although the Halibut came out a little dry. The fries were delicious and most meals came with a side of coleslaw.

Beer and sodas looked like the beverage of choice and the service was excellent with smiles all round. It was extremely busy at dinnertime as the hours are short for a tourist town. Come in at a reasonable hour to avoid missing out as you lose track of time due to the long daylight hours…most of the night!

We would dine here again as the atmosphere is that of a fishing town and the quality is worthy of the average to high price for fish choices.

Enjoy your meal!

“Too expensive/average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I had Halibut & chips but they are not good value for the price. The service was good though. The food itself is not great. The environment is also just ok, just a typical bar style.
I would not recommend this place if you want to have some good Alaskan fish food.

“Great food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

After arriving in Seward via train, I asked two separate locals for a fish and chips recommendation We really enjoyed our meal here. Hamburger was excellent, halibut and chips were amazing. Tartar sauce and cole slaw were terrific too Staff was friendly.
