“Good Food and Drinks”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Chinooks looks like just a seafood restaurant outside but has a pretty large bar area. The drinks were very good and food was amazing. There wasn't much variety especially if you didn't want seafood though so be prepared to have limited choices. Our choices were good though and food was cooked perfectly.

“Expected more.”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

The Halibut was a bit dry over a bed of rice...not special and was surprised by the lack of flavor. My husband's steak was good and it was served with a mac/cheese type dish that was very good. I recommend drinking there only - try the Ginger snap....delicious. But not the food. I think this is more of a tourist trap and wasn't worth the $120 for two people. Would recommend or go back.

Thank you for your recent visit to Chinooks and making the journey to Alaska. I am sorry your experience with us was not what you were expecting. We try to make sure that every customer leaves happy. If you let us know you didnt like your selection we are happy to either replace it with something else on the menu or refund your money all together. We only serve fresh fish and try not to drown the fish in sauces and seasonings. Halibut is by nature a little bland so we do use some seasoning but we dont want to cover up what it was you ordered. I hope if you are ever back up north you will give us another shot. Thank you

“Good choice In seward”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I rarely give 5 star reviews. This is a seafood restaurant right on the waterfront harbor. Fresh fish and they smoke their own salmon and scallops which are excellent. The scallop mac and cheese is also very good if you are a mac and cheese lover. Fast service but we were there for lunch when no cruise ships were in town. We thought food was fairly priced but we're from the expensive northeast.

“Food with a view.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

So glad we came here. Not only was the food fabulous the view is wonderful and the service was great. We got the King Crab and it was yummy. I did learn that i do not like sable fish too mushy.
