Because of its ideal location between the base of Mount Juneau and the Gastineau Channel, the Southeastern Alaskan city of Juneau has been the home of Native American fisherman, European fur traders, and American gold prospectors. Now a free-spirited state capital, Juneau is the perfect base for a journey into the gorgeous Alaskan wilderness, whether it's for fishing, kayaking, and dog sledding in the National Parks, whale-watching at Icy Strait, or glacier hiking at the Juneau Icefield.

Wild, salmon, halibut and rockfish taco truck. Locally owned and operated by a former commercial fisherman.
Deckhand Dave’s Fish Tacos is an easy walk from the cruise ship terminal. You couldn’t get fish much fresher. We tried the sampler and it was great. Very casual seating. Order at the counter. Reasonably priced and tastes awesome!

We went to the Crepe Escape for Lunch at around 1:00 on a Saturday. It's located in a small grouping of food trucks next to the Public Library. There's a few picnic tables outside so likely you will be sharing the table with others. We split the Chicken Alfredo Crepe. The crepe was perfectly cooked and stuffed with Chicken, Cheese and Spinach. It filled us up but we aren't big eaters. If you are then I'd recommend splitting a Savory and then one of the Dessert crepes. The Apple Pie crepe looked delicious!

Faster depending on selection. Locally owned by Tracy, a resident of Alaska for 20 years! We strive to offer the best crab experience at the best prices in Southeast Alaska. Thanks for stopping by!
We sat shoulder to shoulder in the open dining area. Its amazing how many guests don't know how to close the door behind them. Closers on the doors would be a nice touch. The crab legs were outstanding. Service was quick and efficient. Order at the counter and someone brings your order after a short wait.
Crab legs were huge and steamed to perfection. That being said I could order a similar meal in any big U.S. city and pay the same price or less.

Directly across Juneau on Douglas Island the Island Pub offers vistas of Juneau and an interesting selection of Gourmet Pizzas. We had "The Don" marinara, fresh mozzarella, Italian sausage, pepperoni, shaved garlic, sun dried tomato, crimini mushrooms, parmesan and fresh basil. Only one size of pizza is available. The pizza was good though the sauce was too sparse. The Greek salad was could only be considered inspired by a Greek salad. We were surprised that dessert was an option and found the lemon cheesecake and chocolate cake tasty. All in all, we considered this good not great and enjoyed the break from the tourist eateries.

Had dinner here on a weeknight in October 2017. We were a group of 12 and were seated at a long table in the middle of the dining room.
The abbreviated menu features some standouts, as was easy to tell by what some of my friends ordered (it was my first time eating here). The burger was quite popular, impaled by a large knife stuck in the middle of the bun. Another friend tried the Korean fried chicken and loved it. I opted for the ramen.
The dish was served in a large bowl. It was quite fragrant, with all manner of ingredients. I did detect some kimchi, the roasted corn was an interesting touch along with the poached egg. The broth was wonderfully spicy and savory. I really enjoyed it.
The noodles, advertised as fresh, were probably imported from the nearby sister restaurant, In Bocca Al Lupo, because they looked a lot like vermicelli. A little unexpected in a bowl of ramen, but hey, this is a fusion place! So they fit right in.
I will come back to this place and try other items. We all left happy and full.

Famous for our Local Halibut Fish & Chips and our homemade Clam Chowder.
Discovered this restaurant when looking for a place for a small light lunch. We decided to get fish & chips. The halibut and fries were wold class. Fresh, well prepared, tasty food and served with a smile. Expensive but worth it. Would definitely recommend.

We came here for our dinner in Juneau, and we had a great experience. Service was excellent, the waitress was very attentive to our 3 year old, my salmon was among the best I ever had, wife's dish was good, liked it so much I...MoreI'm very glad that you enjoyed your meal and service. However, I'm terribly sorry you were dismissed and rushed to leave. That should not have happened. Please send us an email so we can learn more about this incident. Thank you for the feedback.
