The Seafood Chowder rates as one of the best tasted in three weeks of travelling in the US and Canada. The service was friendly and attentive. Top marks. Not one complaint across the mix of starters, salads and mains in our group. Well done and worth another visit.

Part of Seward is the fresh seafood. Chinooks might be more touristy, but it's a great restaurant regardless. Plenty of room, plenty of choices on the beer and wine menu. The prices for seafood were market price, which is what you can expect, but the quality was excellent. I had a grilled salmon dish that was excellent. I was a... More

We had lunch there on August 12, 2016. The food was awesome. The drinks were also great. Our waiter was very attentive. We were seated quickly and received our drinks quickly. The chowder was out of this world! The fish and chips were the best I have ever had. The price was fair and the service was outstanding. I would... More

Limite option for those who don't eat seafood, but that is to be expected in Seward. We had the Scallop Mac and Cheese, the Veggie Mac and Cheese, Halibut and Fish and Chips. All were very good. Portions could have been a bit bigger.

We came here for lunch and had an incredible experience. I sometimes find seafood places in such towns to be overly touristy but this was not the case. We enjoyed a flight of Alaska beer tasting, and the halibut dish was amazing! All the halibut we had in Alaska was tasty but Chinook's was my favorite. My husband got a... More

This place is really beautiful- views of the boats, water & mountains from the second floor are wonderful. You'll have to take a picture. We all ordered seafood of some kind. The oysters were HUGE! Food was really good!

The food in Chinook's was really very good. It was almost all seafood, and I tried something that I hadn't had in many, many years; crabs legs. I ordered a full pound of crabs legs, which were a bit on the expensive side, but so be it. I should have ordered a pound and a half, as they were a... More

We ordered the salmon and the scallops. Beautifully cooked, sauced, and seasoned. Lots of great local craft beer on tap! Food was good, but the price for two entrees and two beers ended up being almost $90. It was good, but not that pricey good. It's odd because it's priced like fine dining, but the dress and the atmosphere was... More
