It's conveniently located right next to the cruise ship dock. It's not really a fancy restaurant. The term "shack" is fully justified. You order your meal from one shack, they make it in another one, and then bring it to you as you sit on relatively uncomfortable picnic tables either in the open air or under a tent-like cover. It's... More

Unfortunately, they were out of crab cakes when we visited their establishment so we were unable to get the combo (included a crab leg, crab cakes, and crab bisque). For basically the same price we just got the leg and the bisque. The crab was fresh and so delicious. I didn't really think I would like the bisque, but I... More

Have a combo crab meal here even though you get a crab meal on your cruise. The crab legs are huge, much bigger than the ones you get on the ship, and the crab cakes are sweet, juicy and crunchy. The crab chowder is superb - not something you can get anywhere else. The combo is value for money.

A great atmosphere as families, couples and friends hopped into the juicy, freshly cooked red crabs. The tables were covered in white paper but it was soon full of crab shells. This was swiftly cleared and a new customer arrived to start the process of extracting the delicious crabmeat from the crab shell. It was cooked so well, the meat... More

Order the crab legs and savour the flavour, in this right from the pot experience. The sun always shines on this shack on the waterfront, the music was excellent and be sure to tell Johnny we sent you. Can't wait to go back....xo, "Charlie's Angles" PS: And if there is a wait it is worth it 150%!

Fresh crab out of the pot, great chowder and crab cakes. Location is perfect for shopping and walking around. This is a must if you are in Juneau.

It was pouring rain the day we arrived in Juneau but we were determined to go to Tracy's and let me tell you it was well worth it!! Crab legs were amazing. We ordered a bucket and we were not disappointed at all. Sad to hear the owner of the building is making them move out but they said they... More

The best crab I have ever eaten was enjoyed here. It was a bit pricey for one crab leg, but was well worth it. We also ordered crab cakes, which were reasonably priced and also delicious. We sat on stools and ate at a high wooden bar-like table overlooking the channel. The sun glinting on the water and the delicious... More
