Not the best on atmosphere, but a very welcoming place and the 'bucket of buts' is the best halibut I've had in a while. Really lightly breaded, seasoned chunks with cole slaw, etc. Quick service also.

A local suggested we go here and try the bucket of butt which were cubes of Halibutt with fries. The fish was nicely prepared but overcooked (which actually seemed common in Alaska). The decor was retro, comfy red seats and lounges and it was a...More

Great atmosphere.Great Halibut. The seafood chowder is best ever. An old fashioned place for adults and kids.

We (five adults) ordered a whole bunch of 'deep fried' favorites; halibut, fries, onion rings, and sweet potato fries. All the food was perfectly fried. Service was fast, friendly, and efficient. It's a little pricey but good and we will return.

You must slide in for a fast one here. The decor is a step back into the 1960s...in a good way. Very clean and bright! An amazing collection of liquor decanters. The waitress was friendly. A great beer selection. And the bucket of ‘but is...More

Local restaurant away from the dock, with bar atmosphere but good food. Highly recommend the the “bucket of butts” (halibut). It’s not your ordinary battered fish but rather very lightly dusted with seasoning that is brown & crisp... Yum and then some!!

Really good halibut fish and chips! We will come back again before we leave Seward. Atmosphere was a throwback to the 50’s or 60’s. Interesting place. Alaska Amber beer and yummy fresh halibut.

Our bus driver recommended this place as being the best place for Hallibut and as being frequented by locals. What she didn't tell us was how 'novel' the decor is. I won't describe it as everyone should visit and see for themselves. The food was...More
