We went in a Princess Cruises, we wait to go after lunch because the line was long so we prefered to look around the town to come back later and was a good strategy. After lunch hour the line was shorter so we wait like 15min. We order the combo and was amazing, If you have a big appetite like... More

Tracy has a great story about how she built up the business but what speaks volumes is the crab she serves. My mother has had king crab at the midnight Japanese markets. My husband was a fisherman, he has had it off the net. I have had it all over Alaska. We ALL agree her source is beyond a doubt... More

I understand why it was always so busy. With the tourist boats still coming in this place was busy all the time. We decided to eat early and beat the crowd. The bisque was very good, the crab cakes were done just right and of course the king crab leg was cooked to perfection. Not cheap but worth every penny.... More

Got the king crab because you've got to! Very pricey, though. It was very good. Also, the Alaskan beer on tap was cheap. Overall, the meal was enjoyable. What I didn't care for too much was the ambiente, imo nothing special. But the food was good!

We read about Tracy's online and didn't think we'd have time to get there after our excursion and before we had to re-board our cruise ship. We are so glad we were able to make it! So many great choices. The view is amazing, the staff is friendly and the food is simple, fresh, and completely delicious. Enormous crab legs,... More

We knew when we came to Juneau on our cruise that this would be part of our stop. We arranged our excursion early enough to leave time to stop here and eat. We read (on Trip Advisor!) some people talking about the cost being high, so we were sure to budget this in. The food was excellent and it was... More

Me and my family came to Tracy's because Juneau was one of the destination ports for our cruise ship. I've heard people raving about this place that it became on of the reasons why we flew 7000 miles to Alaska. Alaskan king crab was good, like really really good. I swore to myself that I won't eat crab if it's... More
