Salty fisherman, quirky locals all found at this bar. Beer selection is good and cocktails are mixed great. Food is classic Alaska americana. Seafood, burgers and appetizers.

The room was crazy wild with every imaginable decorator bottle of Jim Beam. It was cool to see the collection and recognize some from my granny's personal collectibles. The Halibut was awesome and the Ice Tea was perfect.

From the outside it looks like the local bar. Go inside and you'll see the red vinyl upholstery and the whiskey decanters in cases on the walls. The people are nice and the food is good. We shared the large bowl (14 chunks) of delicious halibut dipped in a light beer batter and deep fried. We liked it well enough to go back the next night for more and this time my husband bought one of their t-shirts. If you get to Seward try it out - you won't be sorry.

We went there for lunch on a Monday, late September, after the "busy tourist season" had ended. Dimly lit, bar atmosphere. Few customers were there. Appeared to be one waiter working. After 10 minutes waiting for a menu, we left. Do not plan to eat there in the future.

The captain on our boat trip recommended Thorns as the best place in Seward for a basket of butts. He was spot on. The fish was tender, hot and tasty. Service was good. Thorns is a bar with a small dining area and the day we visited them for lunch there were more people in the dining area than at the bar. It was a fun nostalgic place with red vinyl chairs and the walls were lined with an incredible collection of liquor bottles. Its right in the heart of downtown Seward with easy access and plenty of parking. Definitely one of a kind!
