We loved this restaurant- had smoked salmon chowder and halibut all round. It was excellent-tasty and so fresh. While we were eating a fisherman brought back a halibut for the fish house- you can't get fresher fish than here. We ate at the outside tables. This is a must stop in Ketchikan.

Downtown fish and chips (crab too). On the water, overlooking cruise ships. Fish is fresh, chips seasoned and Guinness on tap. Life is good!

Wonderful fish and chips, but the smoked salmon chowder was out of this world! Definitely recommend getting a bowl. The large chunks of salmon and roasted corn along with the fresh creamy base make it absolute heaven.

Best meal we had on shore. The halibut was the best I've ever had including our favorite fish and chip location.A treat which should not be missed.

We were nervous when our fishing charter captain dropped us off at this restaurant in the middle of tourist area but the food was really good and the atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend

Halibut fish tacos, smoked salmon chowder, salmon burger and cole slaw. Yum! Order your food and sit in the dining area with views of the harbor. The locals recommend and we could taste why.

This restaurant was a lot of fun with great food. There are separate areas for the bar and food, and food is ordered at the counter and later delivered to your table. The tables have a waterfront view and their is outdoor seating in front. We ate halibut and chips and King crabs legs and they were quite good.

We ate lunch while touring the city during a cruise because of Trip Advisor recommendation. We ordered fish and chips combo. The fish was very fresh and good. This place had a line and was crowded. Be prepared to share a table inside especially if it's raining. Would revisit if in the area again.
