“Disappointing crab and slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We stopped here on our cruise hoping for some delicious king crab. The pound of legs was over cooked and therefore a little dry. The service was super slow and the waiter forgot to take off our %10. He had already rung the card through.

That said, the view was nice and the clam chowder was quite tasty.

I would not return since there are so many other options.

“Pirates and Fish”

If you want a well rounded menu, then hit this place up! What a great atmosphere and delicious food. The deco is awesome, they have many photo's of older fishing vessels too..

“Unfortunately didn't get to try food...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped in and the views of the cruise ships and water were great, waitress sat us but after 15 minutes and a move to the counter we still hadn't gotten service we hungry and left. Felt bad our 'waitress' was the only one who appeared to be working while a bunch of other young people stood around. It was slow though since cruises were loading up might be better when it's busier.

“great halibut and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

We didn't want to leave Alaska without having fresh halibut and, as our cruise ship did not have it on the menu, we opted to have fish and chips here. The crisp coating and fresh fish made us glad we did, as did the option of having home-made chips rather than fries. Good selection of beers. Friendly, informal service. Decor is more beer parlour than restaurant.

“Enjoyed the crab and entertainment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

We stopped on the way back to Vancouver. My daughter and I went there for lunch. I had the crab which was delish!!!!! What they served with it was not the bread was hard and rice boring.
There was a gentleman singing and playing the guitar........very enjoyable. I would go back next time we are there but will try something else.
My daughter liked her burger but nothing to write home about. Our waiter did not have any personality at all and we asked to move. That didnt work he followed us to the new table.
