I was unimpressed by my burger. The patty is clearly pre-frozen and just not quite the way I remember the burgers at Hot Bite. For the price, I expect a beefier burger. The flavor was good but that is due to the blue cheese and bacon and not so much the burger and the bun did not hold together at... More

Very small restaurant at the Auke Bay harbor. Best milkshakes in town, without a doubt. Some of their burgers are excellent. During the summer season, they also sell live dungeness crab. You buy 'em, you butcher 'em, you eat 'em! Yum!!

We stopped in here for dinner on an evening in Juneau. We ordered at the counter and then sat down to wait for our number to be called. The service was fairly slow; we waited about 15 minutes for burgers, fries, and shakes. Once we got the food, we did enjoy it. The shakes were great (hard to choose which... More

Burgers are basic and small by comparison to those across the street inside the Squires Rest. Think of basic burger from the 50s with no frills but premium price. I liked outside seating but theirs is roped off parking spaces with cheap seats and benches, not the most comfortable. The probably have the best malts in town but again, hight... More

Disappointed. We are locals and up until this last visit we always looked forward to Summer and a visit to Hot Bite. The good - milkshakes. Still wonderful. The bad - loooooooong wait time... For a burger?? Plus it then comes out cold? The Ugly - its the opposite if the saying "You get what you pay for." No you... More

We were taken here by our cousin on a beautiful, sunny day in Juneau. This is a small place and you stand in line to place your order. They have a huge menu of milk shakes that are very popular. We all had the fish and chips and sat at a table outside. The fish was nicely battered and fried... More

We decided to grab a bite there after a whale watch as Hot Bite is right at the harbor. It's a good place for a filling, easy meal and there aren't that many options in Junaeu if you want to avoid downtown.

Was given a local tip to go to Hot Bite. Perfect location for a fish shack in Auke Bay, Junaeu. Expected good fish, but got overpriced, overly fried small fish sticks. Fries were prefrozen and nothing great. It was expensive, but I wouldn't get it again regardless of price. Fish tacos were the same fried things, just added to a... More

This place is known for its hamburgers, and for good reason! Three of us had a delicious lunch here while stopping by on our way back from the Shrine. It has a friendly casual vibe and great food and views!

Burgers are very good and worth the ride of you're lactose intolerant, but if not, do yourself a favor and get a milkshake.... Any milkshake will do, they are delicious.
