Excellent seafood. The lobster bisque was delicious, crab legs great, and crab cakes was good too. We ordered the combo #1. This was great food after we trek on the Mendenhall glacier. Definitely will go back

This very popular place on the Juneau dockside serves up the best crab and crab bisque I have ever eaten. They were fresh and delicious. Their cole slaw was also very good. So, why not an "excellent" rating? It is because, for the very high cost of their meals, they skimped on service and utensils. The crab is served wrapped... More

with all folks talking about Tracy's King Crab Shack we thought we would stand in this line to see what we might miss out on. First off the price for one crab roll is 18.00 and the crab mix one we had was 20.00. Not so sure we found these sandwich rolls to be worth the money. Save your money... More

The crab bisque was great. Enjoyed the heaters in the enclosed dining area - it was a cold, wet afternoon.

Kind of cold but sat outside anyhow (actually it's all pretty much outside over looking the water). Place your order at the shack and the food comes fast. The combo included soup, a crab leg and 4 mini crab cakes and a roll. It was delicious - crab cakes were tender and filled with flavour. Soup just a nice spiciness... More

Our lunch at Tracy's was my first experience with king crab, and it was phenomenal. My husband and I shared some sort of combination platter - king crab, soup, and crab cakes, and it was all delicious. We were there in mid afternoon; there was no wait to order, and we were able to find a table immediately. Yum!

This place had good reviews so we tried it on a cruise port stop. The crab was very good. Expensive but worth a visit.

When you enter you go through to the back to place your order. There is no table service. You place your order at the counter and they call you when it is ready. One crab leg is about $25 or you can get a larger order for about $40. Most of the seating is outside but it was a clear... More
