I stumbled on this place one Friday night and I sure am glad I did. This is a fun spot with board games you can play while enjoying a cold beer, pizza and some sports on TV! The wings and sandwiches also looked good, but pizza was on my mind. I ended up with a Fat Stan's Special Stromboli and... More

Well, we had already enjoyed a light snack on the trip so decided to just have... More

Nice place to stop for a drink and a little local color. Locals were intermixed with tourists, so the conversation was lively. Had some delicious homemade snacks.

After being on a cruise ship with bad pizza, I was hoping to get some good stuff. Although I wanted to try another pizza joint in town that had great reviews I went here because it was close. First off, we tried to order pizza around 3:00 or so and they told us they dont serve pizza till 4:30....very strange... More

Popped in with friends for a cold local brew before boarding our cruise ship. Friendly bartender and nice icy cold draft beer. Free internet with purchase and the net was fairly fast. Pizza looked and smelled very good but we did not try it.

A welcoming bar with Alaksan craft beer on tap, friendly owner and staff, good pizza, great for a lunch stop or evening drinks and a light meal. Highly recommend it.

Fat Stans is close to the cruise terminal. It is a lively friendly bar serving Alaska beer and food. We liked the music and meeting people from the Lumberjack show which is almost next door. Free wi fi was appreciated.

Stopped by this bar after a morning of fishing. The bar was recommended by one of the bartender's on our ship. Fat Stan's is known for their famous Bloody Mary's, however, we had a Moscow Mule. Bartender was very friendly. The place is small, friendly and clean. If you're in Ketchikan, I'd recommend heading to Fat Stan's for good drinks... More

Stopped with my wife for a quick lunch. We ordered a Fat Stan's pizza and beer. They serve the beer in plastic glasses and if you present them with a coupon, the bartender will initial it and you then take that coupon to the cashier and he will give you a new clean and wrapped glass. The pizza takes about... More
