“gotta love king crab”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

if you are in alaska you have to have king crab. so we did. tracy's is reached thru their gift shop.
not at all like i expected. the restaurant is mainly outside. first stop the ordering shack. we ordered one leg, chowder and crab cakes. a little taste of everything. next stop was the beverage shack. can't beat a nice alaskan brew. the amount of food was perfect for the two of us. didn't want to spoil dinner on the ship. the chowder was excellent and the crab cakes very good. the king crab was very good but i felt that it was a little watery. the place was packed. you had to wander around to find a table, shared of course. the servers will find you. they yell out your first name and city. always nice to see a business busy. would i go back, in a minute, if it were only closer.

“A yummy treat after a bad day. :)”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Setup: 2 parents and 4 kids aged 22, sixteen and two 15 year olds. We had a very expensive and disappointing day. Our midday excursion cost a fortune without any benefit. It was cold and rainy. We didn't get a real sense of Juneau. We felt we wasted an entire day of our lives the one and only time we'd be in Juneau. We headed back to our cruise ship and considered stopping at a restaurant and eating crabs but couldn't bear to spend even MORE $ and be MORE disappointed.

We took a chance and glad we did. Tracy's was right next to our ship. It was an outdoor "shack". There was a covered tent with lights. It didn't feel freezing. We sat on benches. We ordered six small bowls of Crab Bisque and it was $50. Yikes! I mean Yummo!

You order at the counter, pay, sit down and they deliver to your bench. Small paper cup with plastic spoon. Each cup came with a crusty roll in a paper boat.

This was the best crab bisque EVER, we all agreed. Worth every penny. Be careful, it's so hot and you're going to want to eat it ASAP. Don't burn your tongue or you'll ruin the whole thing.

“Delicious Crab Lunch”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

My wife and I were on an Alaska cruise and decided to check out Tracy's for an off-ship bite to eat. The restaurant is located in tourist-trap row but don't let that put you off, it's worth it. We timed it just right and it was not too busy at all. It has a separate order and eating area that is exposed to the elements (on the sides). It is right on the water the the ambiance gives a nice, Alaskan authentic feel. There is indoor seating available as well. We ordered the king crab leg, bisque and crab cakes each. While it was not "value-priced", the crab was delivered quickly and cooked & cut perfectly. It was a very enjoyable meal and would certainly recommend it as a delicious food stop while off the ship or visiting the Juneau area in general.

“King Crabs as you would expect from Alaska”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

We had a flying visit here as we had to dash back to our cruise ship but was well worth the visit. I was a little concerned at first as it is off the main street at the back of some stores but it is safe and well lit.
