Thorn's is a favorite place for dinner in Seward. The Halibut is always great. Staff is helpful and fun.

Love me some good greasy burgers and tater tots with no up charge. Silly velour makes it super comfortable.

They have the best fried halibut in town. They also have a really good menu of other food to soothe you taste buds. They also have a really amazing and unique bottle collection.

I do recommend the Halibut in a bucket and the small portion of 7 one ounce pieces is enough. Service and beer good. Usual American establishment with multiple screens devoted to sports that nobody takes notice of. Seating bizarre as double seat with wrap around backs and not much room to eat in comfort. Empty chairs seem to block the... More

This bar was built and never changed. It is a dimly lit, cranberry leather covered marvel. There are literally 100s of liquor bottles showcased in the restaurant. The food was average and the prices were reasonable considering the area. The waitstaff were friendly and prompt.

We were directed to this restaurant to get the local flavor. Most others in the restaurant appeared to be tourist like us; however, tourists probably did outnumber locals. Decor was retro 1960's cocktail lounge. The "showcase" refers to the hundred's of decorative Jim Beam bottles that were encased on the walls. Meal was reasonably good - not memorable. My one...

Going here was like a trip back to the 60s. Old decor with a huge bottle collection, friendly fast service and interesting people. The food was so so, but the experience was fun.

My wife and I spent a couple of days in Seward as part of our 16 days touring Alaska. We went down to the Small Boat Harbor area where they have several restaurants. We browsed for a bit and came across Thorn's Showcase’s chalk board of the day’s specials. They had a lunch special: Bacon Cheeseburger & soup (Yankee Pot... More

We wound up eating here two nights in a row. The halibut nuggets are fantastic. The service was a little off, probably because they were so busy because of the Stanley Cup, but the food more than made up for the tempo.
