Alaska Fish House Ketchikan Reviews
A net gain in Ketchikan Jun 30, 2012
Conveniently located right by the docks, the Fish House proved a sensible place to grab lunch in Ketchikan. Prices are salty in comparison to most places, but when stacked up against nearby competitors in this land of cruise tourists, you make due. Better yet, the glut of humanity meant most other places were jammed and even though there was a line, this joint is set up to ‘get ‘em in and get ‘em out’. You place your order at the front counter, pay and take a seat in anticipation of baskets being delivered to your table.
The dining area sits by the dock, so even though the décor is nothing special (basically a lot of wood), the views are pleasant and the service is terrific! Our order came out quickly and the waitress was efficient and fun. I subsequently thought of something I forgot to ask for (tabasaco, of course) and flagged down another waitress with identical results.
The selection centers on various “fish burgers” (e.g., halibut burger, blackened salmon burger) and other seafood items like Alaskan King Crab legs and really yummy smoked salmon chowder, but regular hamburgers, fish & chips and a selection of seafood tacos are also available. Even though we paid a pretty penny for our fare and it was served in paper plates and bowls, the meal was satisfying and the atmosphere ebullient. Not a destination, but a reasonable choice if you need eats in tourist town.
