As locals we consider Annabelle's one of 4 or 5 restaurants to choose from when we are taking guests to dinner. There is a warm atmosphere year round with the dark wood walls and the menu always contains a choice of tempting seafoods or steak along with other offerings such as their signature chowder. In the past we have found the food ranging from mediocre to excellent. Last night it scored at the top of the scale for us. After an appetizer of coconut prawns we ordered the prime rib, petite cut, and it came cooked a perfect medium rare as ordered. We found the "petite" cut generously thick and nearly too large for one person to eat. A bonus on this evening was a special $15 a bottle selection of wines, and a good wine certainly enhances a fine prime rib. The service was good, the company was enjoyable, and it was a very pleasant evening out.

Ketchikan was the only town I had trouble finding a place that offered gluten-free substitutes. We decided to eat here and it was standard pub fare. Old, traditional looking pub; waitress was nice but had no idea what gluten-free was and still seemed lost even with the explanation. Typical, average pub food. Luckily, my son likes burgers and will eat them without the bun. Wish I had researched better dining options in Ketchikan.

Annabelle's is full of dark shiny timber and a bit of well-dressed age. There's a long bar that serves a stack of different beers and much else, and you can eat at the bar if you wish. There's a sectioned-off area with round tables and upholstered benches where you can have a meal and enjoy the beers and wines too. The menu includes the ubiquitous fresh wild salmon and halibut, chowder and burgers and many other staples. What we had was fresh and delicious and we much enjoyed the busy and friendly atmosphere. You get the feeling it will be much the same place even when the tourists have gone and the colder winds of Autumn set in - it's a local favourite.

Their homemade chowder makes Boston Clam chowder look like canned soup. You've got to try this place!

Annabelle's Chowder House in Ketchikan, AK has the best smoked salmon chowder. My husband and I ate there in September. We had previously eaten there 11 years ago and it was as good as I remember. The chowder is very flavorful and it is the perfect lunch for those wet and rainy Alaskan days. The cannery bread is the perfect side for the soup. The atmosphere is also good. The prices are reasonable.
