Very busy. Suggest reservations. The restaurant has a full menu, but focus on the fish. The restaurant sits on the waterfront and it is thrilling to watch the activity on the docks..

Resturant is well placed on waterfront, service was very good on a busy night. I had the standing rib roast, which they are noted for. It wa good but not outstanding. Medium rare order was closer to medium well. It was nice and tender. Others at my table were very happy with their order. Food is expensive in Alaska every... More

Great views across the marina and Resurrection Bay to the mountains beyond. I had the Gulf of Alaska Halibut grilled and served with mango salsa or garlic herb butter... cilantro lime rice and seasonal vegetable. My wife had the Captains Platter. We enjoyed our meals but average for Alaskan standards.

We ate here for dinner last week on one of our two days in the Seward area. We had a beer at the bar after our Fjords tour and then came back a bit later for dinner. It was a Thursday night and the wait for a table grew quickly around 6:30ish. We waited 10 minutes for a table and... More

LOVED this place! Views of the harbor were amazing--saw a fishing boat unload and boats dock in the harbor. We had the tuna and a caesar salad, which were excellent!

This one is difficult to review because some of the food was really good and the rest, not so much. The specials of the day, salmon tacos and the beer/sausage/broccoli/cheddar soup were fantastic. My daughter and I were envious of my husband's meal because that's just what he ordered. I had the salmon with garlic butter, and it was overcooked... More
