Went to Seward for a family getaway, this restaurant was right next door to our hotel. It has great views. Staff was ok. We had their Chinooks Poutine for an appetizer. It was pile of thick, tasteless cheese over soggy fries and smothered with overly salted gravy. My husband got their mac n cheese with scallops. It was super rich,... More

Visited during the off season. Was a chilly and windy day. We were seated at a table overlooking the harbor. Very charming and cool vibe/decor. Our table (thankfully) was right next to a gas fired "wood stove." The food and service were great. I had the Mac & cheese with seafood & bacon-- yum! The view from our table was... More

We walked in for mid-week lunch and were lucky to be seated despite the restaurant being really busy. Service was friendly and the food was amazing, a delicious halibut salad. It's a little pricey but worth it.

Very good food, took one star away as we had to wait a bit to get service from a non interested waiter. The back overlooks the docs and water. Nice atmosphere and to be honest there are not many other other options in Seward. Mountain views from the area. We would go again.

I have never had a bad meal here, always a good spot for a fish and chip basket. The salads are really good too. The cocktails are also good and a lot to choose from.

So happy we decided to come here for dinner. The dining room was busy but not packed, and we were quickly seated at a table overlooking the nearby marina. It was late afternoon and we got to watch the snow-capped mountains change colors from the setting sun. I had an incredible dish of smoked scallops with mac & cheese and... More

Chinooks is located right on Seward's waterfront. Serving a Fresh menu of Alasaka's best seafood. Also serving Steaks and options for vegetarians and gluten free options. A new Sushi bar has been placed upstairs near our huge picture windows to enjoy. We have 12 Alaskan brewed beers on tap with a full bar of premium hard to find spirits, and one of the best Scotch selections in Alaska. A worldly, yet well rounded wine selection is also available.
