We were recommended Thorn's for their halibut. Yummy I am so glad we went. The fish has a very thin batter. So it is mostly fish. Awesome. Definitely recommend to everyone.

Ah Thorn’s: home of sport-dedicated TVs, cool bartenders, late-night eats, locals escaping the tourist crowds, and walls of old liquor bottles enshrined in display cases (?!!). Yeah, that last part is a little strange, but Thorn’s unique choice in décor not only adds a bit...More

A little bit of a wait for our party of 7 but was highly recommended by my son who lives in Seward. Food and service was great.

Of all the restaurants in Seward, this one was not appealing to us from the street. It looked old, worn and cheesy with its Showcase Lounge signs and dated look. We decided to give a try anyway since it had good food reviews. Even inside...More

Finding a great restaurant in Seward is a real task. The showcase lounge is better than most but far from great. Halibut baskets are good but could be better if they were not overcooked. Locals seem to enjoy the Bar crowd and reasonable prices for...More

Thorns family restaurant has a very dated and very crowed table arrangement. The portions we had like the soup were quite small for the money. I saw some burgers and they looked like one third pounders. 2 wait staff at lunch were kept very busy...More
