This place is awesome with both a friendly and casual atmosphere. The line moved quickly and the crab was the best I have ever eaten. Order "The Bucket" so you don't leave hungry. Tracy's is worth a trip back to Juneau for another meal!

Judging by its location and the prices one would think this place was simply a tourist trap aimed at all the cruise ship visitors. However, having eaten there I can safely say the food is really good. I had the bisque on rice and it...More

Sadly, Tracy's has morphed from being a fun and funky restaurant into a very structured feeling experience. The single crab leg that you get in an expensive standard meal was very good. The soup and mini-crab cakes were average fare. The rolls were pasty. Tracy's...More

A funky place...They call your name/state when they deliver your food. King Crab legs were luscious, meaty and served by a fun and hard-working staff. Good bisque and crab cakes as well. A little pricey but the total experience is worth it...

The crab legs are large, the State is large, and when we first went in, our appetite was large. A bucket of crab legs later and everything was fine. We really enjoyed our experience. There was a rustic atmosphere to the restaurant which added to...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.
