On the recommendation of the city bus driver, my friends and I stopped in here to get some lunch before heading back to our ship. While the old newspaper menus and kitchy decor spelled tourist trap, I was very pleasantly surprised once the waiter listed out their selection of Alaska brewing beer. He pointed out their salmon chowder as one of the specialties, and he was right.
I should have just gotten an entire bowl of that chowder, it was truly unique and memorable. The salmon that I got for my entree was overcooked and over buttered, though that was partly my fault for getting it pan-fried (I should have gone with grilled or broiled).
The prices are probably a little high, but like most of the cruise ship destinations, they are striking while the iron is hot in the summer, and it's hard to fault them for that.
We did have to wait a little while to get some attention from our waiter, but from that point on he was great. He even gave us free refills on their delicious bread as an apology for the delay (which usually costs a buck or two).
Bottom line, if you are looking for a good beer and a good lunch while you are here, Annabelle's is your place.
