We had a quick bite here after hiking around Exit Glacier. The food was good and quick, my son especially loved the Reuben!

HOLY SMOKES, SMOKE SHACK!!! Easily my favorite place for breakfast in Seward. I just tried the breakfast sandwich for the first time and it was INCREDIBLE! How did they make it sooooo good? I don't know... I thought for a moment about putting it down...to look inside and examine what was giving it so much awesome flavor, but I couldn't stop shoveling it down my gullet. I've also had their B&G, Burritos, and my all time favorite, Carmelitas, which are breakfasty nachos. Lunch is also great! Spicy pork is my go to. Can't say enough about this local favorite! -ClayMore

We came here for lunch after a couple days of backpacking and not eating much but cliff bars and ramen. It HIT THE SPOT. The coffee was delicious and kept on coming. I had the spicy pork sandwich, which was my favorite of the three...meals we ordered, a perfectly sweet-spicy mix that came with some top notch cole slaw. Not huge, but I wouldn't have wanted more. My brother's burrito, on the other hand, was enormous and came smothered in two types of chili sauce (his choice). He managed to eat the whole thing and said he felt like a brand new person. My dad's halibut taco was flavorful and his favorite of the three, though I thought it was a bit too juicy to really hold together. Most people come here for breakfast and the breakfast menu looks delicious, but if you can get here before 2:00pm the lunch also comes highly recommended. Cozy and unique atmosphere is a bonus.More

Lovely little breakfast spot in an old Alaskan train wagon. It’s a small, comfy place run by lovely people. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. I had the Snow Crab Benedict which I would definitely recommend. 🤤 The Carmelitas looked class as well. 👌🏼😊

Small place and they do it well! We had breakfast on 3 days and every time it was great. The Veggie Eggs Benedict was my favorite. Excellent service!

All around awesome. Not a whole lot else to say. Cool atmosphere in an old dining car. Incredible food. Great service. My biggest mistake is that I left Alaska without buying a Smoke Shack camo hat. I regretted it the moment I left Seward.

We had breakfast and it was served hot and the server was very customer oriented by discussing recommendations and helping us. We ordered the Hollandaise poached eggs, ham on toast and the other was cheese omelette with potatoes

The food at this place was amazing. We had to wait a bit to get in because it is a small train car and seating is very limited, but it was SO worth it. The wait staff was very friendly, the coffee and hot chocolate...were wonderful, and the food was fresh and delicious. Do not pass through Seward without eating here!More

The place is really cute and the people who run it are cool people. I personally had the snow crab eggs benedict which I've never had before and it was REALLY good. I don't know where else I could get something like that so I...would come back for it again. Their fries were also really good. Overall, just a really great experience.More
