Awesome food, staff, views, ambience, beer selection. The fries are the best...shoe string batter fried! We will definitely eat there every time we are in Seward.

Three of us ate here and everything we had was amazing. I'm not a huge seafood person but their chowder is to die for! The crab legs were delicious! The staff was very friendly and informative. And you can't get a better view in the whole town. It's a must stop on your trip.

The food and service were great! The crab legs were the biggest I've ever seen. The beer sampler was delicious and I was able to try several.

I enjoyed my lunch of fish and chips, which watching the harbour activity. The service was reasonable but not exceptional.

The food was pretty good, great views. Service was pretty good as well- our server was fairly attentive. The fresh oysters were amazing. It was a nice meal overall, would highly recommend it.

I ordered the Halibut BLT. I wanted the Fish & Chips but at $25.00 that's a little too pricy for me for lunch. My sandwich was so-so. They put some slimy grilled onions on my sandwich. That definitely needs to go. The fries were fantastic. I should have got the Fish & Chips.

Well the outside was better than the inside. The inside was dated at best. Restrooms were not clean. We sat with view of harbor. Food was average at best it really depended on what you ordered some was good some was not. Floors were dirty and not well kept. Tables and chairs were old and dated matching the rest of... More

Excellent seafood. Had fried Halibut, very tender, the view from the table is amazing! The staff here is very friendly, but most importantly the locals love to chat with visitors! We had a blast eating here and loved the decorations! Affordable as well!

People screaming over each other to be heard. Nice view, but distracted with the noise. Very pricey. Had the salmon. Was supposed to be pan seared. I would say it was match seared. Just a little to raw for my taste. Vegetables and rice were tasty. On a happy note, several GF options

This is a waterfront restaurant with good view. Food here were average and expensive. The service was ok. Sometimes hard to find parking. Be aware you might need to pay if you do not park on their parking spots.
