A great place to try king crab. Of course it's expensive everywhere but a little less so here. On a sunny evening it's fantastic to sit up at the wooden counter overlooking the waterfront with a cold beer and some crab legs watching the cruise ship passengers wander up and down and gazing across the water.

We dined at Twisted Fish 3 times, and here once. The crab here is definitely the best - juicy and fresh. At certain times of day, there are very long lines for ordering food so you'll need to plan your meal time, or be patient.

Had previously read rave reviews about this place so during a family cruise we all decided to try it out. Now I must admit that I am not one who eats seafood much but my family is a huge fan. I had the beer battered shrimp and have to say it was delicious, I even tried some of my sisters... More

Enjoyed several pounds of Alaskan King Crab fresh from northern Alaska. Plenty of melted butter and rolls to fill you up.

This just seemed like one of the must does on our trip to Alaska so we chose Tracey's based on reviews and we were not disappointed. We were able to order one combo and add a leg and share between two people. The price per leg are a but off putting but they are BIG. Strangely, the crowd was light... More

It's an expensive fast food restaurant. You stand in line in the sun for 1/2+ hr to order your food and drinks. You then have to find someplace to sit at a picnic table (tough to do at dinner time). You get your drinks and then wait for them to bring you your food. The bisque comes in a paper... More

Very well organized, and well run. Some of the best food in Juneau. You sit outside, most tables are family style. Would definitely go back.

Tracy's King Crab Shack certainly isn't as seedy as the picture on a Trip advisor or its name suggests. It consists of several shacks, one at which you order, another under which the crabs are boiled and other in which the dishes are prepared. On our visit, it was a sunny day, just perfect to enjoy some delicious crab bisque... More

Purposely did not eat breakfast on the cruise ship so I could eat an early lunch. Had to wait a little longer for this meal because they mixed up the order. But when it arrived it was heaven. Enjoyed every morsel of this huge crab leg.
