When we docked Ketchikan it was foggy at 8 AM but the fog burned off and the day turned into a sunny, beautiful day. The "Ketchikan Fish Shack" was the "Alaskan Surf Fish & Chips". We may have been spoiled by other fresh seafood establishments...More

Excellent choice if you are wanting to experience " Alaskan" fish & chips. Located right on the pier along the cruise ships - you can't miss it. Both the halibut & cod are excellent!

Have always liked Halibut, but had never tried a Halibut Burger. The freshest, lightest, yummiest fish burger ever!

When our ship stopped at Ketchikan eating at the Alaskan Surf was on our to do list, based on the reviews we read. We were not disappointed. The fish and chips were tasty, not heavy (we even received an extra piece because we mentioned TripAdvisor)....More

The little food shack is located right on the dock. We ordered a large clam chowder (which was the highlight of the meal) and halibut and chips. The halibut was fine but the fries were lack luster. Check out the pics to see prices and...More

Alaskan Surf fans, bad news good news. Bad news we will not be on the cruise ship dock this year. We finally out grew it. Good news is the number #1 destination food choice is relocating to the inside of Bar Harbor Restaurant. there we will have an extended menu adding such things as crab,fish tacos and grilled fish. We will also be serving beer and wine. easily reach by walking,at Berth 4 by the cruise ships. looking forward to seeing my friends this year.
