“the crab bisque is amazing”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

So I first came here about 6 years ago before it got "big"- I was walking by and saw this shack and noticed traps hanging in the water on the side of the shack- I thought "now that stuff is fresh!" so even though I am not a huge crab fan and really only like blue crab, I grabbed a bisque- and am I glad I did! It was amazing and still to this day the best crab bisque I have ever had, the second to best crab dish(first is a huge family crab boil in MD-c'mon), and one of(if the not THE) best bisque in general ive had.

Bonus- for you cruisers-its right next to where most ships dock- so its easy to get to and quick-making it a must do! you get the best local cuisine righ on the dock! go here!

“Wow! Tracy's crab shack is amazing!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Well worth every penny. Eat outside or under a tent if it's raining but you won't be disappointed ! Ate here every time we've cruised to Alaska! It's a must for all crab leg lovers!

“A great, casual place to eat”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

My girlfriend and I along with our two daughters really liked Crab Bisque at Tracy’s Crab Shack. I was a bit disappointed that the price of a couple of legs of King Crab were so much, but I checked with other folks who live in Juneau and they assured me that King Crab is expensive no matter where you go and that Tracy’s was still the best deal. The Staff was very friendly and being as the eating area is a big tent it felt very rustic and adventurous and the Bisque and crab cakes warmed us right up.

“Amazing”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This was one of the scheduled stops on our cruise tour and this was one of our best choices along the way !

We had
CRAB SHACK COMBO
The favorites served w/garlic rolls & butter.
(Serves 1 to 2 people)
King Crab Leg (1)
Crab Cakes (4)
Bisque (8 oz)

We could have eaten twice this much if not three times but it was amazing !!! I am glad that i don't live there because I would be there every day that it is open.
