A local recommended this place to us as a place they frequent. What a great tip! The chowder was great, and the bucket of butts (halibut) was the best! An interesting place.

My husband and I split an order of the halibut pieces. He doesn't even like fish and he liked them. The taste was very mild and the batter was so light it complimented the excellent fish. Our waitress told us it was locally caught, flash frozen and delivered to the restaurant the same day. Don't go for the atmosphere but go here for the halibut! Excellent!

My husband and I walked a very short walk to Thorn’s Showcase Lounge for lunch while we took a break from the Alaska SeaLife Center. The staff was very welcoming and service was fast. We of course had to order their famous “bucket of butts” (Halibut) along with French fries and fried onion rings. Everything was hot and delicious. We loved the retro décor and sat in one of their double red vinyl seats that was comfy. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. We really enjoyed our meal there and highly recommend.

Even though I knew I was walking into a place with character from the reviews, it definitely was with the decanters througtout and red leather studded seating, with TV's all around. No doubt a lounge, and the halibut butts were delicious: light, crispy, not over cooked with good side choices and add ons. Reasonably priced as were the other choices. The waitress was a bit slow considering there weren't many customers since it was early, but overall a good choice in Seward.

Retro decor and a great collection of fancy booze bottles. Several TVs with sports, terrific juke box, friendly staff and good bar food at reasonable (for Alaska) prices.
