The Red Onion provides a good local feeling along with good food. Tables are a bit crowded together but that just adds to the fun. There is a wide selection of beverages and food choices. Suggest you try one of their Alaska Brewing Company beers...More

This used to be a brothel and waitresses are dressed as they might have been in the gold rush days. We were lucky not to have to wait long as it was packed with cruise ship guests. Had cup of chili which was okay but...More

They were busy which is to be expected. We wanted to eat lunch, but our party of 12 would have to wait 45 minutes or more for seating. Decorated like an old saloon was everywhere and the folks inside were having a great time.

Excellent very informative and interesting they have started to rebuild the alleyways back to what they may have been during the gold rush.

The place is a hoot even though it is clearly a tourist trap. I didn't care. The beer was good, not pricey and the staff was fun. Go.....knowing that it is a staged show but a lot of fun.

Response from RedOnionSaloon | Property representative |
Hello! The Red Onion is very centrally located and is a 10 minute walk (tops!) from any of the docks. There is also the S.M.A.R.T. bus that provides shuttles from the various docks for a small fee. Have a great trip!
