The fish and chips here was among the best I've had anywhere. Our server, Amy, was delightful. Only four stars as their hours seem to shift around the cruise ships coming in and out so we missed a second visit once the rest of our...family go to town. Would highly recommend you try to get here, though!More

We ordered halibut fish and chips, salmon burger, crab cocktail and corn fritters. All was very good, except the salmon burger. They were a little skimpy on the salmon. Everything else was fresh, well prepared and tasty. Easy access from the main cruise terminal.

Nice restaurant at the port where our cruise ship docked. My wife and I decided to have a light lunch while we were off the ship and decided to check it out. We both had the chowder and thought it was very good. Service was...pretty good but they were also packed.More

No need to go into town when the ship docks. Head right to Halibut Point. New building is big, has plenty of seats and bar. We sat at the bar. Had the clam chowder, best I have ever had! Dungeness Crab was super fresh, and...the Halibut Fish and chips where perfectly cooked.More

We ate here while being in port in Sitka. It's very conveniently located right at the port terminal in Sitka. We got a combo, which was King crab leg, a whole dungeness crab, chowder, and corn cakes. I also had a beer. It was plenty...for three people to sample and enjoy.More

We came in today via the Holland Cruise ship and noticed this place right on the dock. We went into town and did some exploring and afterwards we returned here to eat. The Dungess Crab was very fresh, sweet and delicious. The Clam Chowder was...out if this world. To top it off they have the coldest beer we have had on over a week with chilled glasses which topped off a great meal. LOVED IT!!More

We visited Halibut Point Crab and Chowder yesterday while on Radiance of the Seas. It used to be a tent, but the new facility is gorgeous. It was a limited menu on opening day but lots of delicious Alaskan beers on tap. We shared a...halibut and chips order and it was the best meal of our cruise so far. Service was super friendly and welcoming and they had a good selection of hoodies, tees, etc. Highly recommend.More

I am not sure how you’d go here if you weren’t on a ship as it’s located ON the cruise ship dock. I had a half a steamed dungeness crab with melted butter and hot hush puppies and I was pretty happy. The quality made...up for the expense and they were very friendly.More

We always stop by the Halibut Crab & Chowder for lunch after a morning of touring Sitka. We are there once a year. Tis is the first time that I am not giving them a five(5). This 4 is due to we ordered clam chowder...in a bread bowl only to be disappointed when we were told they didn't have bread bowls. The service is excellent and the price is competitive. Yes, we will be back next year. Hopefully we can give them another 5.More

My fiancé and I stopped here for lunch, ( going back tomorrow 8/28) we went looking for this tent! Unless your getting off a cruise ship or a local it was a bit harder to find from justnthe sign on th road..... But was so...worth the circle we made tomfind it! We both had the king crab, and it was so fresh and hot! Cooked perfectly, steamed. When we walked in we saw the chef (or so I assumed was the chef) at a table actually cracking the king crab open and pulling the meat out for an older couple. It was very kind of her to do,it all for them. Tomorrow I plan on having the fresh live Dungeness crab for lunch. The price is market price so it’s really average for AK and worth the very buttery sweet cent! I also got myself a baseball cap, I will probably get a sweatshirt this next time. No matter how you visit Sitka this is a defiant must! The chef brought our king crab to us and showed us how to “crack” them, allthough she didn’t know she was teaching seasoned professionals 😂😂 it was obviously something helpful to slot of people and we happily watched. We shared a regular size clam chowder, it was warm with big meaty pieces of clams. With all ththe crab you get it was more then enough of the warm briny chowder to prepare us for the sweet warm and buttery crab. I had a small draft of an Alaskan beer I was disappointed in so I forgot the name and my fiancé had two glasses of lemons he said was really good. I forgot,to take pics when I was there last time, I’m taking some tomorrow and will,add ,y opinion on the dungys.... so far to me king is the king, but we will see how fresh live dumbness is........More

Wasn’t hungry and was intimidated by the pricing, but ordered the full Dungeness Crab. And boy, was that the right decision! Tender, sweet and unbelievably flavorful. Yes, it’s expensive and yes, it’s a fair amount of work. But, you’re unlikely to be able to top...it anywhere. So, if you love Crab, you owe it to yourself to go for it. Nuff said.More

A pop up tent serving great grab dishes. I came back fro town and was a little early to board my cruise. So I had a fresh crab entree. Very good!! It was expensive for what i got but was well worth it.

This restaurant is located in a tent next to the cruise terminal about 15 minutes shuttle ride from Sitka. Friendly service and compared with some other restaurants I saw in Alaska, it was quite reasonable. My wife had the Dungenss crab and it was very...good as well.More

First stop on the cruise was Sitka and we visited a few animal places and on the way back I popped into the Halibut Point tent. Imagine a festival and the food tent, it is like that. However, they have fresh crab, Dungeness and King,...as well as Halibut and Chowder etc. They also had Spruce Tip beer from Sitka. What a great combination. You can't miss them getting off the boat.
