Chose this excursion in Ketchikan. Loved taking the boat out to pull up a crab pot! Saw eagles in their nest. Then finished with an all you can eat crab leg buffet. The waiter and waitress were very fast and friendly while serving such a...large group!! Ira did a fantastic job on showing us how to properly crack crab legs!! We inhaled the crab legs and they were gracious to offer us more after everyone else had finished. The cheesecake was very creamy and surprisingly tasty!!More

We visited this as an excursion from an Alaskan cruise in late September First, there is a boat ride out to the crab pots and then back to the restaurant where the mysteries of how to eat crab is told by the delightful hosts. Then...the crab arrives, with a cold beer or a glass of wine. As much as you can eat. It takes time and know how to eat crab efficiently,but on this tour all the novices learned very quickly and the shell plates were quickly filled. Everyone came away having had as much crab as they could eat A great experience fo all ages. Just be careful not to crack the shells with teeth. Ther’s no dentist nearby.More

They kept the crab legs coming and they were all nice and hot. The only complaint was it was very crowded but we also had a large group. I would go back again.

We visited here on our Alaskan cruise in September. After a brief tutorial on how to eat crab: translation (A way to keep you from eating more crabs) they brought out the first batch of crabs and the feeding frenzy began. You are given approximately...1/2 a crab each time you ask for more and it takes a little while to pick all that gorgeous white yummieness from each nook and cranny. You are also given unlimited soft drinks or a glass of wine with your meal. Here is a tip, if anyone at the table don't want wine they can give it to you! After you've had your fill of crab (or until the allotted time expires) you have your cheese cake which was also very good. If you love crab, it's something you have to do, but be warned! After eating all of that crab and desert, you'll have to walk back up the 80 some-odd steps back to where the parking is. Bad side, it's a hike! Good side is you get to burn off some of that fabulous meal you just had. The cost to do this was approximately $100 a person including the transportation from the pier to the restaurant and back again. Gratuities for the restaurant and driver are not included in that amount, but it's one of those once-in-a-lifetime things to do! Go ahead, you know you want to, just wear loose clothing that day!!More

Crabs and beer at 10 AM! What more could you ask for? Our tour began with a bus ride to the George Inlet Lodge where we boarded a boat for the inlet tour. We did see a bald eagle nest, and crabs in the crab...pot! The boat tour was very informative. We enjoyed the story of how the lodge was moved to its current location and the complications involved. The crab feast was AMAZING! The crew gave us a quick lesson on how to crack open the crab for the plump and juicy meat inside. The crabs were delicious and the Alaskan beer was perfect for washing down the crab. Totally worth the visit if you have the time.More

We enjoyed the beautiful float plane ride to get us to the George Inlet Lodge for our Crab feast excursion. We were greeted at the door by "Mady". She was our hostess and made us feel welcome immediately. We had a quick tour and demonstration...on cracking the crabs. (Not that we needed it) but still was cool. The Crabs were the best ever and we will definitely be back to enjoy asap. Maybe I will save some room for the Cheese cake which I heard was great. They do not give you unlimited hours to be here so make the best of it. The Alaskan IPA and Amber beers were awesome.More

I was part of a large bus tour in Ketchikan that traveled to the crab feast after a show. First - their location is absolutely gorgeous, right along the water. The young ladies running the feast were just in their 20s (Abby & Samantha?) but...they did a great job with the crowd of 45 in the dining room. The crabs were out of this world. We came to Alaska to sample King crab legs, but these Dungeness crabs were the sweetest we've ever had in 40+ years. They were cooked to perfection -the shells were easy to open with our bare hands, and the amount of meat was incredible. We already plan to order crabs to be delivered to NYC area this winter (perhaps over the Christmas holidays). If you are in Ketchikan and want awesome crabs, you must stop here.More

All very basic but staff are pleasant and just keep on giving you more crabs legs (plus, to me, a silly competition on how high your pile of crabs gets - of course people use beer glasses to heighten their piles!!). First drink - wine,...beer etc. - is free. We ate as much as we could and then had a piece of cheesecake which was a welcome change - personally I'd have liked some bread and butter, or vegetables or something else with the crab but clearly the aim here is to fill you up with crab until you cannot eat any more. The timings were good and we were ready for a boat ride back to Ketchikan and our shipMore

It was a rainy day in Ketchikan and I'm so glad we had booked this excursion. We were picked up at the cruise ship and taken by motorcoach to the restaurant on the waterfront. It was about a 20 minute ride and the driver narrated...the trip. But the best part by far was the friendliness of the staff and the unlimited (!) crab legs. Our servers (sisters) made a great team. They taught us how to get to the delicious crab meat and kept the food flowing. The meal also included salad, one alcoholic drink, and cheesecake for a dessert. This was a wonderful experience! I left very, very full.More

If you do not eat crab, it really is not worth going. They did have chicken and I think ravioli. They take you on short boat ride to the lodge. The crab was amazing!!! Not worth the price if you don’t eat crab.
