Looking for lunch in Seward, we found this place close to the Sea Life Center and one street over from the main drag. Heads up - they are closed between lunch and dinner. (At least that’s the case in March). I had the bacon cheeseburger...More

I was in Seward for about 4 months, and went to the Cookery 4 times. The food was great everytime. Unique prep of local seafood. Amazing breads and desserts. You won’t be disappointed.

Atmosphere: fun, beautiful, simple decoration. Comfortable seating. Open dining area with a very cool old fashioned, restored bar. Menu: small menu gives them the ability to focus on QUALITY. Don't let the limited menu stop you from trying their food. Anything you order will be...More

Absolutely amazing food and atmosphere. Chef Lane and his band of merry misfits created delicious food time and time again. I strongly suggest their wild mushroom toast and their cheesecake ice cream with bacon and balsamic soaked strawberries. By far one of the best places...More

Ate here twice, the first time was incredible and the second was very good. The place opens for dinner at 5pm and gets quite busy so either make reservations (I don't know if possible) or arrive early. Great food of high quality and very special...More

Wow, wow, what a great place! We all had specials--all four entrees were excellent! And the Chocolate Charcuterie was fabulous!! Don't miss this place in the downtown area--small, unpretentious, on 5th Avenue. They don't make reservations, but you can put your name on the list...More
