“Fourth of July with Jim at the Yukon!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Normally, when we go to this part of Seward on the other 364 days of the year, it's like a forest of drunks. They're all out on the sidewalk, trying to smoke, and figure out the next bar to go raise cain in. But since Hobo Jim was here for two hours, thought we'd give it a try. Cash only, decent selection of beer, and wall to wall people. If you're down here on the Fourth, stop in and say hi to Jim, have a drink, and dance!
Or head to the side door of the bar, look in, and yell "hey Jim!"

“Old time Alaska bar”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

It's a fun place where the locals and tourist go. There are some real Alaskan characters in there. The bar tender pours a very good Jack and Coke.

“Cool local place”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stopped in for a drink and they had a good beer selection, cool atmosphere, and interesting people. Only downfall is that it is a smoking bar...

“I agree !!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

As soon as I saw the Yukon I knew it was what we were looking for. A local's place to have drink. Nice selection of Alaskan brews on tap. Good luck finding a spot to add your dollar to all those adorning the walls & ceiling.

“Seward's finest "Dive Bar"”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

What can I say about the Yukon that hasn't already been said. If your looking for a seedy dive bar with loads of personality this is it. Please realize the clientele is 97% "out of state people". Most work the tourist season. So it really isn't a authentic trashy Alaskan dive bar.

I first came here back in late 80s while I was in college. The bar hasn't changed. its still as tacky as ever. Only the faces have changed. I still find my self visiting every time I'm in Seward to fish. They are famous for their "ice tea's". Word of warning, have a taxi on stand by! Only the brave go fishing the next morning!
