Alaska produces more seafood than any other state. No matter what you're looking for in Alaskan waters, you'll find it. From crab to halibut to salmon, you'll find it all. The state is also home to many fantastic seafood restaurants. Our favorites are listed below. 

Alaska Fish House 

With its gorgeous views and fresh fish, Alaska Fish House isn't your typical seafood restaurant on the water. The process involves going from boat to grill to plate. Alaska Fish House offers you the option of catching and preparing your meal. For a relaxing meal, try their Dungeness crab chowder or get a bowl of chowder.

Baranof was conceived on Slate Island while AJ and Chuck Slagle stayed there overnight in the year 2000. Being enthusiasts of the variety of wilderness experiences available in Southeast Alaska and having grown up hunting and fishing there, they thought a family seeking an authentic Alaskan experience should learn more about not just sport fishing. Although they offered simple pleasures such as Alaskan seafood, beachcombing, and campfires on remote Alaskan beaches, they enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. According to the Slagle's, it takes more than a box of fish to show you the Southeast Alaska lifestyle.

When Tracy first moved to Juneau in 1996, she had the idea of opening a seafood restaurant. Her first time out crabbing was with some friends. It was love at first sight for her! Crabs were fascinating to her. The crab pots were pulled perfectly, and the crab was cleaned, the crab was cooked, the scenery, the company, and the crab tasted fantastic!
