We stopped at the crab shack while we were in port on a cruise ship. We pad $19 for one crab leg; I thought the price was ridiculous but when we tasted the crab it was well worth it.

Traveling to Alaska means you need to try crab....well this is the place to try all types! Tracy's has a sampler of Crab Legs that is just delicious and fresh! The service was great, everyone was very nice! I like to cook, so I went to the dock area where they were cleaning and prepping the crabs. The staff let... More

If you're going to eat anything with Alaskan King Crab in it, the best place to have it is Alaska! This is as fresh as it gets. We ordered the crab cakes, crab roll, crab legs and bisque. The leg meat is sweet and succulent and the other items were quite good as well. Sure, it's pricy and if you've... More

My husband and I, along with four other family members, were on a cruise last August. We all love crab legs so naturally we had to try Tracy's. The best crab legs I have ever had, hands down! Can't wait to go back someday.

We went there in an afternoon after some rainy. We first thought that there would not be many people but to our surprise that the place was crowded even the eating place was outdoor. The crab meat was fresh but a little bit pricey if you want a King crab bucket. The serving size was a little small. If you... More

Crab legs are fresh although the serving size is small for the 50$ it will cost you.You sit outside under a tent and it is pretty dirty.

I heard this was a "must go" but could be crowded. We went in mid-afternoon and there was a line, but it moved quickly. It seemed a little pricey, but I figured this was the only time I would likely ever be in Juneau. However, once I tasted the king crab leg I felt it was well worth the price!... More

We went in a Princess Cruises, we wait to go after lunch because the line was long so we prefered to look around the town to come back later and was a good strategy. After lunch hour the line was shorter so we wait like 15min. We order the combo and was amazing, If you have a big appetite like... More

Tracy has a great story about how she built up the business but what speaks volumes is the crab she serves. My mother has had king crab at the midnight Japanese markets. My husband was a fisherman, he has had it off the net. I have had it all over Alaska. We ALL agree her source is beyond a doubt... More
