Good place to get halibut or salmon. Very small operation and a bit unusual but the food is fairly good.

“Wonderful quick lunch with delicious chowdah and great fresh halibut and chips.”

What a great little open air place on Creek Street. Service was warm and friendly. We loved having lunch here as we watched the tide come in. Delicious hot food for a group of hungry folks.

“Great Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We were on an Alaskan cruise and I was craving fish and chips. I'd would actually walk casually through restaurants looking at the food served and most fish and chips restaurants were NOT serving fish and chips... bad indication of their fish and chips.

I remembered a little place at the end of Creek Street and decided to try the Halibut Hole. We just ordered one order of cod and chips to share (I wasn't that trusting as if was panko crumb crust) and she split it into 2 dishes
I was wrong. Fish and Chips were very very good! I would highly recommend this little outdoor covered patio restaurant on the edge of creek street 'creek'. Wonderful location. We watched seals swimming by as we ate. Very friendly manager. Good memories of Ketchikan.
It's located on the end of creek street near the little tram ($2.00) that goes up to Cape Fox Resort.

Fun to explore Ketchikan.

“Yummy Clam Chowder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Again, rainy Tuesday, Great location..yummy chowder, comfort food for sure, and if we could have paired it with the beer bread from O'Brien's down the way..It would have been glorious:) Great service, beautiful view while your eating, smell of fryer could get alittle intense but over all yummy warm lunch:)

“fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is one of the last places in town to get real hand-made fish and chips. Most all the other establishments serve a pre-made frozen product. Can't beat the real thing.
