“Great crab”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

Took an Alaskan cruise with Holland America with 11 family members. We decided to leave our cruise ship and visit port, and buy food. Some people would not buy a meal when there's good food on the boat - but the food here was spectacular. It was worth the fresh caught crab - we loved it. Only minus was the tables were a bit dirty.

“Outstanding crab!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

What can I say that other's haven't already? Yes, it is a bit pricey, but your taste buds are in for a real treat with the excellent, complex flavors of everything served here. My husband had a crab cake roll, I had the bisque; both were absolutely fantastic! Independent travelers: be aware that opening hours depend on cruise ships anchored in port.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We had a beautiful sunny day and stopped for dinner before heading back to the ship. They are adding on another section but we managed to find a seat at one of the picnic tables. We had the crab combo. Crab legs, crab cakes, bisque and buns. It was delivered quickly and everything was fresh and very tasty. Try the bisque on rice. A little pricey, but worth the splurge.

“The Best Crab ever”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

Had the best crab. It is outdoors but there was cover from the rain. I went for lunch and would of gone back for dinner but the rain and the cold made me stay closer to the ship. 10 stars!

“Best food I had all week!”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

A bit pricey (hence 4-stars) but this was the best food and crab I had while in AK! It is definitely a shack with outside seating only - don't expect anything fancy. We went here on the recommendation of a fellow cruiser and it was well worth it! We shared the crab bisque, crab cakes, and crab cocktail. I thought the crab cocktail would be like your regular shrimp cocktail - but it was way better. All you get is a big bowl of crab! I opted to get this instead of the crab legs since I think you get more crab with none of the work! Yum! All of this cost $44 with a beer and a tea. This was plenty to share. Beer was a bit warm but the view was fantastic!
