Sad to say, all the food from trip advisor has been spot on... so we went. AK fish tacos, salmon chowder, cod fish and chips. The chowder was ok, the tacos had the cheap hard formed taco shells, meat was good but everything else detracted...More

I'm glad you enjoyed the chowder, but want to apologize for not meeting your expectations with our fish tacos and cole slaw. Our shells are made in-house every day, but it is true that our menu no longer includes the soft-shelled variety. Ocean View is...More

This place was recommended by a local chef. In our opinion it was the best chowder we had while on our trip to San Francisco and Alaska. Put it in a sourdough bread roll and watch out Fisherman's Wharf

We had the Salmon Burger and the fish and chips, both were fantastic. I also really enjoyed the great section of local beer. The place was also a little off the beaten path and felt more local than the other places.

Hard to beat the quality of the fresh seafood. Nice selection of ice cold draft beer. Good view of the harbor. Highly recommended!

The fish house can do grilled salmon or halibut on a salad for a gluten free dish but the restaurant cannot be certified as gluten free if you have a severe case.

The Alaska Fish House is easily Ketchikan's first choice for fresh Alaskan seafood. Visit us at the end of Main Street, just a short walk from the cruise ship docks. Enjoy gourmet seafood dining next to the most historic fishing fleet in Ketchikan. Try a complimentary sample of our delicious smoked salmon corn bread while ordering from our menu featuring alder-grilled salmon, halibut & chips, crab, and our famous smoked salmon chowder. Ship home the same smoked salmon that we feature on our menu.
