We try to visit Seward at least once a year since moving to Alaska 8 years ago, but we had never tried Chinooks until now. We were pleasantly surprised! It is the beginning of the tourist season, but we were seated immediately and had wonderful service. We were with our 2 year old daughter, and it was kid friendly. I would call the atmosphere upscale casual. We got a table right at the window and our daughter enjoyed watching an otter swimming around just outside the window. They have great wine and beer selections. We had the pecan crusted cod and veggie mac and cheese, and we loved our dishes! We also had the southwest ceasar salad, and it was very good. We shared a very delicious goat cheesecake for dessert. We had a wonderful time and a wonderful meal, and would highly recommend Chinooks.
