“Great tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

This is a great little casual fish joint right next to the cruise terminal. I had the salmon tacos and they were delicious.I would say that they were a little on the pricey side but worth it if you a looking for some FRESH seafood!

“Best salmon I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Buy the grilled salmon sandwich. You won't regret it. It was honestly the best fish I've ever had. Unbelievably fresh and perfectly cooked.

“Excellent fish in a fun atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stopped here recently and was craving some fish & chips. I ended up selecting the halibut fish and it was fantastic!! This is a great little casual place with a fun inside and picnic tables outside. My wife had some very tasty fish tacos. If you are looking for a true Alaska experience with some very high quality seafood, this is the place!

“Fried Halibut Great. Fries are Not!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

A local kettle corn stand guy recommended we go here. The building & atmosphere is fun since it's right on the dock. We got Halibut Fish and Chips. The Halibut was good but not the best I had during our AK trip. The fries on the other hand have a weird BBQ type dry seasoning on them that totally botched the taste and ruined the quality of the meal.

Another reviewer also mentioned the tables were sticky. We had the same issue & apparently the restaurant is looking into resurfacing the tables. The staff here were nice & again the overall experience was cool. Stick with the tacos or try something else without fries. Be prepared to pay a good amount since it's AK; but it's an option with a great view in this cool town.

“Fish & chips by lumberjack show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Long line outside this fish place so we decided to eat after the lumberjack show and walked right up. We had the fish and chips. The batter in the fish was different than we had had before. It was more like panko bread crumbs. The coleslaw I didn't care for but I'm used to southern type of slaw with mayo. It was good but not the best we had on our trip. The building is quaint and near water so the views out the window were nice.
