Arrived in Juneau aboard the Holland America and decided to stop for a drink and an appetizer before re-boarding the ship for dinner. The crab claws were so sweet and tender that we ordered a second round followed by an order of the crispy and tasty crab cakes followed by a big bowl of the crab bisque. I've eaten lobster bisque at 5-star restaurants and this crab bisque holds it own with all bisques at those 5-star restaurants. We ate so much and enjoyed our meal so much that we skipped the "free' dinner on the ship. Best dinner of the week even if it was enjoyed under a tent in the pouring rain. keep it up Tracy - your seafood is amazing!!

The best crab we have ever had and the chowder and coconut crab cakes had a good mix of spices and flavors that never overpowered the main ingredient.

This is the place to eat crab in Juneau. The crab bisque, hot buttered roles and crab were sensational. Oh, the crab cakes were hot, tasty and so very good. Ask about their specials. We happened to get a special that wasn't featured on the menu by asking the waitress what she recommended and it was great. Roll up your sleeves and dig in.

We went twice on our cruise to Alaska. We took a tour with a local guide and he told us that this is where he goes to eat crab. We had passed by before but it seemed like a tourist trap. Our cruise offered King Crab legs - but this place has the real deal.

The crab bisque is thick, creamy, full of crab and divine. If it is cold this is the perfect soup to cheer you up. I have never had better.

The King Crab is just as the name implies - huge. Also sweet, perfectly cooked, tasty and delicious. They come pre-cracked with everything you need to finish the job. I cannot find enough superlatives. If you go to Juneau - and think - tourist? price? - never mind - just order the King Crab and you'll know why this place is truly the BEST!!!
