Wild Alaska Seafood- catch it here!
Ketchikan features an enticing variety of restaurants and eateries, most of which feature our state’s famous Wild Alaska seafood bounty. Salmon, halibut, crab, shrimp, oysters and clams from the icy cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy our local favorites: creamy seafood chowders; crab and shrimp tossed into omelets, salads or sandwiches; salmon, cod or halibut smoked, sautéed, broiled, battered, baked in an elegant sauce- or in traditional fish and chips. Try a salmon burger or salmon jerky – deliciously different from the beef versions. Gather beach asparagus, berries, seaweed and Hudson’s Bay tea leaves – all traditional native foods.
Rest assured that your hometown favorites, from hearty steaks to pizza, fast foods and country-style breakfasts are also served. Your favorite beverages are available too, whether you crave a latte (locally roasted coffees are featured) or are interested in trying an Alaskan brand brew. Choose from casual or formal dining in local restaurants, cafes, snack bars and dining rooms in area resorts and lodges. Or, plan a picnic by stopping at a deli for a savory meal to go.
