Great place for nachos and a beer while walking around Skagway. Easy walk from the cruise ship in the middle of Skagway which is tiny to start off with. People dressed in period costumes, brothel tour available for $10.

Very friendly waitresses, great food and service. Skagway was one of our port stops on our cruise. Love the town and people! We stopped at Red Onion Saloon on our way back to the ship. Glad we did!

Good place to eat. Nachos are pretty darn good. The servers costumes are fun and seem closer to historical than touristy. Fun spot.

Enjoyed the ambiance of this place. The pizza menu is big. Service was fast and friendly. Beer selection could be bigger but there is enough to give the discerning beer drinker something to enjoy.

The Red Onion Saloon was the last stop on our excursion in Skagway. The tour of "upstairs" was very informative and entertaining.

We had lunch here when in port on a cruise. What a great place! Something to be seen while in port. Very short walk from the pier. Sawdust on the floors, and Great Fish & Chips.

I was looking for an authentic Alaskan saloon and was told that the Red Onion was the place that locals went. It's a pretty small place with a brothel museum on the second floor. We just stopped for beers so I can't comment on the...More

You have to have a Duck Fart, just to say you did. It is like going to Canada ad not having a Tim Horton's coffee. Or Coney Island and not having a hotdog. It won;t break the bank, but it will make you grin.

Enjoyed the Mooses Drool beer! Friendly staff and great atmosphere. They do food too. Well worth a visit and not too far to walk from the cruise terminal.

Yes! It's about a 2-10 minute walk, depending which dock you are at. Also, the local SMART shuttle runs continuously and offers rides for a couple bucks.

Hello, no you do not need to be on tour to experience the Red Onion Saloon as we are a full bar and restaurant downstairs. You can also opt to take a day-of "Quickie" tour of our brothel museum when you come in. Tour times... More

Hello! The Red Onion is very centrally located and is a 10 minute walk (tops!) from any of the docks. There is also the S.M.A.R.T. bus that provides shuttles from the various docks for a small fee. Have a great trip!
