We stopped here after visiting Mendenhall glacier. You order as you enter through the front door. After we ordered, we looked for a table. We shared a table with an interesting older man. He was sitting and waiting for his wife to finish her shopping....More

Overall very good. A few mis-steps in service and took a bit of time to get started w ordering.Most of the food was both interesting and tasty. Ordered a pork entree and the meat was tough

Tracy's King Crab Shack was recommended to us by friends who had been to Juneau. We went and the Shack did not disappoint. Yes, we had the king crab platter with a ginormous leg plus chowder. Yes, it was pricey but oh so good.

Gift shop had smoked salmon samples and novelty T-shirt’s that were affordable. Lunch menu is a good portioned meal that is adequately priced for a meal in Juneau

The food is hit and miss, the pricing is offensive. The service is excellent, but try dave's for value.

If you love crab legs then you will love Tracy’s. The price seemed high at first but when you see the size of the crab legs you will understand the price. This is probably the freshest seafood you can get short of catching it yourself....More

Definitely the best crab, soup and service we encountered during our stay. Love that you can see the crab coming off the boat straight to their door.

We stopped in here after visiting the Mendenhall Glacier. The restaurant was packed. It was hard to get a seat for all four of us. It was very difficult to hear each other. We ordered the crab shack combo which came with one king crab...More

Mostly king crab is a winter fishery so frozen at sea. However we do get some smaller fresh king from NOME in August usually. Great quality on all!

Every day is different. For a standard I would say, right when we open, between lunch & dinner and half hour before we close:)

Hello, We are located in Juneau. I am unsure of the best crab in Ketchikan. Probably the Alaskan Fish House.
