Excellent seafood and service at this restaurant. We dined here two nights of our three night stay. Right on the water overlooking the marina and the occasional sea otter and eagle you may see from the windows. Highly recommend this restaurant if you're in Seward.

We had to wait quite a while to get in but found both the food and the view were worth the wait. The staff was Alaska friendly and the food cooked well although they had already run out of some of their specials.

Bored wait staff, worn out seating, and dull presentation of famous Alaskan Halibut made us think poorly of this local Seward restaurant. High prices and sloppy service. Avoid it for the restaurant next door.

While this restaurant has great views of the harbor the quality of the food is average and a little pricey. The seafood linguine was OK but the halibut was tasteless even though it was cooked well and the flesh was moist. The highlight of the...More
