We stopped here for crab rather than have it near the cruise ship. We ordered two whole crabs, crab cakes, and chowder for five adults. It was delicious!

I did touch my beer for 45 minutes...that's how good it was. The crab was so fresh and delicious. Don't be deceived by the dive bar atmosphere. I also recommend the $2 brown bag mystery shot...different every day. The staff was super friendly. The chowder was a 6 on a scale of 1-10.

We stopped by Icy Straight Point on a cruise. We wandered over to Hoonah for a pleasant walk. We went to the Office Bar for lunch. It is a simple little bar that serves a few food items which include crab cakes, nachos, chowder, and fresh Dungeness crab. The bar overlooks the water so it is a nice view. They... More

Crab is great, get that and only that. The open faced crab rolls were terrible, they make them ahead of time so it's cold and on an english muffin (steer clear). The service was horrible as well. They forgot half the things we ordered, and most importantly forgot our drinks. Beer eventually came after we were done eating. I heard... More

Stopped in for a beer after our excursion and had an enjoyable visit with some locals and heard some history of the town. People are very friendly and great to listen to.

After an excellent whale and wildlife tour with Captain Floyd, we stopped into The Office Bar for crab. It was delicious as was the clam chowder and potato salad. When the crab are in, this is the place to go in Hoonah. Great service and good 60s and 70s tunes on the jukebox.

Odd little place that drew us in after walking to Hoonah from the Icy Strait boat dock. The cooks were frying up locally caught halibut balls in a little table top fryer. Reminded me of my aunt's bar from the 50's. Great place for a beer, a bite, and wifi.

We went in early June and had awesome halibut fish and chips (fries). This is such a small town place....it didn't even have a menu, but also had nachos, pizza, and beer. The locals say that when dungeness crab is in season, this place is the best for it....great crab and at better prices than Icy Strait Point. Super friendly... More

Went on a whale watching tour and they told us this place had good crab. Well they were right. The place is a hole in the wall but don't let that scare you off. We don't drink so can't comment on that part. If we ever visit this area again I will remember to come back here.

Stopped in for some local food, but all they had to offer was micro-waved food :(, Had a beer and left as there wasn't much going on here.
