Description: Chinooks is located right on Seward's waterfront. Serving a Fresh menu of Alasaka's best seafood. Also serving Steaks and options for vegetarians and gluten free options. A new Sushi bar has been placed upstairs near our huge picture windows to enjoy. We have 12 Alaskan brewed beers on tap with a full bar of premium hard to find spirits, and one of the best Scotch selections in Alaska. A worldly, yet well rounded wine selection is also available.

This eatery is located in "New Seward" by the docks. Nice views can be had here. There is a small bar here for socializing or waiting for a table.

The menu is Americana and rich in tastes. The food is heavy and the portion sizes are too large. While the environment tries to make an upscale brew pub impression the menu doesn't make it interesting enough.

The staff was friendly and courteous.

The location is lovely, right on the water at the dock. The food is not as superb as one would hope, but "very good". If you have time to spare, then it's worth it to ask for a seat by the window.

We were seated upstairs beside a large party. The waitress was kind enough to say that if we ordered quickly that she would get our order in before that party. Nice. Drawback to that was she never shared that there were specials, and though she knew my husband doesn't eat seafood didn't tell us that there was a bar menu we could have ordered from. Lesson learned...always ask for the bar menu.

I had the Pan Roasted Halibut. It was good but not outstanding. My husband ordered the Grilled Ribeye Steak. Though the meat was good at least 1/2 of the steak was fat, ugh. He would have preferred a leaner cut but unless there is one on the bar menu he was stuck.

Half way through our dinner a waiter serving the table beside our spilled soup everywhere, including my chair, leg, pants, etc. He was extremely apologetic, no problem. However if it had been my restaurant I would have brought a complimentary drink over.

Makes me wonder if they see tourists coming...

We had to opportunity to eat supper here one evening! The staff was very friendly and personable. The fish and chips were the best I've ever tasted. Our table overlooked the marina which was wonderful!!
