Really a funky kind of place, but they serve the best deep-fried halibut in Juneau. Also incredible nachos. The restaurant entrance is in the back of the building so you don't have to go to a bar to get great halibut. Also no need to dress up for this place. Nice.

Heard about this place from some other tourists that stumbled across it. As mentioned by others here, it's the classic dive with excellent food. The halibut fish and chips were lightly breaded to perfection, and made just right. The young ladies behind the counter were nice, and took time to explain the options (halibut and salmon and chips combo sounded... More

We had heard they had the best fish and chips, but it was only good, not amazing. It is a little bit off the beaten trail and a very local place. We have had better on Vancouver Island.

If you're looking for great fried Halibut take the 15 minute trip away from downtown and enjoy. Fries are perfect. Split in two with a bar it's a great place to eat and watch a game or play pool.

Fresh Halibut and Fresh Coho Salmon!!! It was served with fries and cold slaw. The server was Mary and she was delightful and had excellent recommendations. This was her part-time job on Sunday. The Sand Bar is out of Juneau a few miles But totally worth it!!!

Our hotel desk clerk recommended this restaurant. Both the outside and the inside scream "dive" but the fish was excellent. We visited after a long hike and were quite hungry; the small fish-and-chips was enough for two. The fish was big chunks of halibut fried in a beer batter and was excellent. The chips were so-so - some were overdone... More

Though I was staying in a hotel by the tourist area, I was told to visit this place by a coworker who had been to Juneau before. I am SO glad he did! While the fish is good down on the docks, it is more expensive since they cater to the cruise ship crowd who don't typically have transportation to... More

We went there after the place was recommended to us by a our hiking guide. The restaurant is very bare bones, but they serve generous portions of halibut fish & chips.

This place is the real deal for fish & chips, made with large chunks of halibut, not cod and not some pressed fish patty like some other places in Juneau. The fries are even crispy. You pay for the food, not the atmosphere. The large order of fish & chips can easily serve two. The clam chowder is awesome as... More
