We ate here at the recommendation of the folks at the B&B. Food was quite good. Nice beer selection. Right near where the fish are cleaned and processed, so it is easy to kill time while waiting for a table.

Like Ray's, very busy. Suggest reservations. On the waterfront exciting to watch the activity on the docks. Full menu, but try the fish.

I you are in the Seward Marina area, you can't go wrong eating here. Nice selection of local seafood at reasonable prices. Go beer selection but of Alaskan craft beers. And most of the seating has you overlooking the marina. I'd go back in a heart beat. The halibut chowder was extremely good.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at this excellent restaurant. The seafood chowder was full of shellfish and flavor. The crab cakes are tender and tasty. Our server was very helpful! Definitely a repeat!!

Chinooks has an A+ location! Ask for a window table and you can watch all the harbor action while you eat. The food got mixed reviews with our group - great chowder and Alaskan crab cakes, pretty good halibut cheeks and fish & chips (also halibut), terrible salmon - the fish itself was probably good, however it was prepared poorly...

We were really looking forward to eating here. They ran out of the smoked salmon board, were slow to serve and the sushi was not what we expected. My husband had the halibut- which was fantastic. Oysters were good but the gremelata was a bit sweet for our tastes. The chowder was full of seafood but was really thick.

Good food, but gets chaotic if they get busy. Service then really gets slow. Best to sit upstairs & not bar if you want any sort of setvice. Fish seemed fresh & was quite nice. Hit or miss on the service.

The halibut with basmati rice is oh so delicious. Lightly seared with a delicately crisp crust, and the flavor is subtle yet bold...didn't know that was possible until I had it. I ordered an extra piece of halibut on the side.

This is suppose to be one of the high end restaurants in town. We wanted a light meal. We ordered seafood chowder, dinner salads and calamari for an appetizer. There were no condiments at the table. Only our table. The chowder was cold when served and had very little flavor. The "house made" dressings were some ones idea of good... More
