Alaska Cruise May 24, ports of call Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway would like to find a nice restaurant in one of these port for a nice seafood dinner. Any help would be appreciated. Juneau I'm doing the Whale Watch, that's all we have plan so far...Thanks
I would think almost any port would have a good seafood restaurant, may-be google each port and pick and choose. You will find that while on the cruise, you will find many evenings where fresh seafood is offered as well...
I just posted this in another spot, but in Juneau check out Tracy's Crab shack.(and no I don't work for her) I used to work on cruise ships and stopped their almost every week. It is a small shack behind the library that sells ENORMOUS Alaskan King Crab legs. It's not a "nice seafood place" but the pictures and the stories will be worth it.
In Juneau we went on a whale watching tour then followed up at a Salmon dinner at a special club on an isolated island. The food was fantastic.
So, try one of these salmon dinner tours. I think they will be far better than anything in town.
Paul, I have to agree. We did the 5 Glacier Float Plane tour which did a landing on the Taku River right next to a glacier and there is a lodge where they cooked fresh caught salmon and chicken on an alder (?) wood grill and there was a buffet of sides set up. The bears like to visit in the summer, but we were too early in the season to see any. I still think about that food! It is our favorite tour of all time! Spectacular scenery and the food was out of this world.
I have to agree with Cruiseshipmuso. Tracy's King Crab Shack is dang good. It is fresh and delicious. The crab bisque is also very good. I dropped $40 there and ate until I couldn't eat no more. One leg was almost as long as my arm.
It is just what it says: A crab shack. You will eat outside, on paper plates and plastic cups and utensils, but it's worth it. Crab prices fluctuate and based on what I've seen here at home I would say that their prices are also going to be a bit on the high side but you do get your money's worth.
There are also a number of salmon bake excursions that are quite good. I have never been a big salmon fan but I found the excursion we went on to have some pretty good salmon. Some ship mates we met went on a private salmon bake and were very happy that Halibut was also offered. I would have loved that one.
