I actually live in Juneau, and Tracy's is one of the few seasonal eateries that myself and countless other Juneau residents are always excited to eat at. You won't find better crab anywhere. The staff is super friendly, and really fun.

Delicious fresh Alaskan crab. If you're in Alaska, why not do what the Alaskans do? Highly recommend.

We stopped by here during our cruise trip. The weather was rainy and cool, but our food was nice and warm. We shared a combo of a jumbo crab leg, mini crab cakes, crab bisque and garlic rolls. Everything was delicious and well prepared! Outdoor seating under a tent kept us nice and dry.

Chanced upon Tracy's when our cruiseship docked at Juneau, Alaska. After having gone on our shore excursion and frankly not enjoying the food too much, we looked for a place to eat before heading back to the ship. We tried Tracy's and man was that one of the best decisions we made in our Alaskan cruise. The King Crab legs... More

Great Alaskan King Crab legs, Crab bisque, and the Original Combo #1 is large enough for 2 people to split. My mouth is watering just remembering our lunch there. Their location is prefect, eating outside on a dock really adds to the experience!

We were docked in port on a cruise and they were right at the dock side, so thought this might be a tourist trap but nothing of that it was the best king (huge) crab legs we've ever eaten. Too bad Juneau is so far from where we live.

We pulled into port on a cruise and dismissed Tracy's as a tourist trap. Boy were we wrong! Even the locals pointed us to Tracy's. We probably had the best king crab leg we have ever encountered at Tracy's. Not to mention, eating on the deck was fun. The service is good, but low key. The crab cannot be better... More

We visited the rainy city of Juneau, AK in august of 2016. It was a very cold day, so we decided to warm up with some buttery crab. Words cannot describe how delicious the food was and how awesome Tracy's King Crab Shack is! The food took about 5 minutes to order(small line) and about 5 minutes to be delivered... More
