If they have crab you must get it

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.

We visited this local bar because we were told they have the best crab. However, they were out of crab for the season once we got there. There wasn't much else on the menu other than microwaved foods and pretty terribly pizza. We tried the chowder - it was decent. but the beer was cold and our waitress was nice

This is a very small friendly town and you can't say you've been to Hoonah Alaska unless you visit the office! From the moment you walk in you feel welcome! This is a family business, on arrival we met the grandma, she was cooking crab cakes near the entrance. She escorted us to our table and greeted by the grand-daughter... More

A really fun place to stop and eat some fresh caught crab. you get the whole crab and some slaw. It is a Local Alaskan bar with the owner, Mary, waiting tables. Lots of fun to sit and watch people and eat crab....beware you probably will want more. When they are out, they are out!

I chose to support this local bar rather than the commercialized restaurants at Icy Strait Point. It has a basic bar menu, but the special of day can be great! Nice view and friendly people. Check it out!

Wonderful crab! Great service. Fun atmosphere. A perfect spot to grab lunch before or after whale watching in Hoonah. Loved seeing the view of the water from the table.

If you are looking for fine dining this is not the spot but if you want a fantastic freshly cooked crab you would be remiss to not stop at The Office Bar. Friendly people, perfectly cooked crab for a great price and cold beer. Add the view and you really can not go wrong!

Great local home town feeling, with excellent crab and decent price. The home photo albums on the pool table were great to look at.
