It really depends upon your taste in seafood. The city's whole downtown area is imminently walkable and quite safe, and I have yet to eat in a restaurant in the whole downtown district to which I'm not very eager to return. The best advice is to wander the streets, which offer plenty of choices, until you find a place that suits your tastes.
BTW, the downtown area of Anchorage is very easy to navigate. Streets are in a grid, numbered consecutively one way and lettered consecutively the other. The main railroad station is on First Street, right at the edge of the downtown area. Unfortunately, back in the 1960's, a major earthquake formed a cliff between Second Street and Third Street, severing most of the lettered streets on that block. IIRC, it's only A Street and L Street, at the respective ends of town, that are still entact. The real downtown is now on top of the cliff, roughly between Third Street and Eighth Street and between C Street and K Street. And the natives say that the best feature of Anchorage is that it's so close to Alaska.
Have a great cruise and a great stay in Anchorage!
