We came here hoping for an oysters Alaskan king crab feast, and boy they nailed it. Burger was a little funky and the service was "relaxed", but what an excellent place to soak in the view and chow down on seafood.

Food was average at best and overpriced. Our service was poor and the server was very rude. Did not go back during our time in Seward.

Casual but not inexpensive. Probably average for Seward during the tourist season. Our waiter was very helpful and fast with the service. Gets 5 stars for quality of food. Make reservations and ask for a table overlooking the harbor.
