We loved the Dungeness crab we had here as well as the crab chowder. It was fun to watch them cooking the masses of crab they were serving.

I thought this place was very expensive, and the food and ambiance were not worth the price. Very crowded, very touristy,

Delicious king crabs . Once you get a bucket they will chant your name. Delicious food. Juicy meat. Get a hot sauce for additional taste. No regrets . Even the seafood are tasty.

Upon entry, it looked like chaos! Crowded and hectic. But their is a method to their madness. They pushed through some amazing crab. Get the buckets! It’s worth it. 3 lbs of Alaskan king crab legs. Sit with new friends, don’t be shy! It’s an...entire experience.More

This is our A-1 food spot when in Juneau. We ordered the crab sauce online to take home. The crab bisque is the BIG winner along with crab cakes and rice one has the BEST meal ever! Thanks to Dana for handling our online order...and Tracy for the great new address and continuously excellent fare!More

Great experience, fun location, and amazing food!. If you have time, ask about the second location that is off the beaten path so the line isn't so long. A lot of the Cruise people have to stay close to the ship so they can't use...the other location.More

This is the real deal for crab lovers. Made our third trip on an Alaskan cruise last week. There will be a line, but it moves fast, and people are in and out such that it's easy to find a place to sit. Had a...pound of Dungeness Crab that was awesome. Try the cole slaw. It's a mayo based slaw that has a lot of flavor. The crab bisque is a type that will appeal to some and not to others. It's got a hint of cumin, which I like but my wife didn't. Only downside is that it's a challenge to find crab scissors, which you really need for Dungeness. They need to come up with a way to provide them such that customers don't abscond with them.More

At first glance, my husband and I rolled our eyes, however after walking all day and looking for other crab options, we decided it was going to have to "do" - so grateful we went. It was EXCEPTIONAL! Crab was so fresh, environment was so...fun and easy to use. I recommend a Daou rose with a few pounds of King crab. HEAVEN.More

What an incredible place! If you're stuck on a cruise ship and get let off at Juneau THIS IS YOUR FOOD HEAVEN. Hilarious slogans, live music, and a dive bar atmosphere that is amazing.

Just got into Juneau tonight. Went to Tracy’s,. Ordered steamed dungenss crab. Came out with no utensils to crack open. Staff said they were out of utensils. Said customers were stealing. Waited 10 min while husband went ahead and started eating before a young waitress...came out with scissors and worked through the crab to cut open. Awkward while she stood there and cut through my dinner.. Crab fair. Red Lobster in the lower states just as good: crab chowder oily and tasteless. Staff with exception of lady working register apathetic. Also ordered wine at register and given ticket to go to bar too have filled. Out of wine ordered and paid for at register. Cannot recommend. Hope this isn’t a sign of our trip to come.More

We had to try the Alaskan King Crabs while in Alaska and we picked a great one! It was absolutely delicious. We don’t get them this good on the east coast.

We came to town on a cruise ship and had some delicious appetizers. The crab cakes and the bisque were to die for. Our favorite part was Rombauer Chardonnay by the bottle.

A huge tourist spot when the cruise ships come in, so we waited til after 7:00 to eat dinner. It's not cheap, but no matter where you are King Crab is not cheap! This is so fresh. You can see the workers taking the crab...legs out of the big blue containers, which come right off the fishing boats, before they steam them. I wasn't impressed with the crab ceviche, so I wouldn't order it.More

They do not take reservations this is a counter service restaurant. They ask that you not sit at a table until you’ve gotten your food. It seems to work just fine
