The Best Seafood Dives in Alaska
The Bamboo Room Restaurant
The juicy, ultrafresh halibut fish-and-chips in this homey small-town diner are the best we've had. Wash it down with a beer from the Alaskan Brewing Company; 907-766-2800, bamboopioneer.net.
Hangar on the Wharf
Overlooking Juneau's seaplane harbor, The Hangar has an extensive menu, from king crab hand rolls to halibut tacos. Bonus: the 100 available beers—20 on tap; 907-766-2800, hangaronthewharf.com.
Auke Bay, Alaska
Since 1983, Southeast Alaskans have headed here for juicy buffalo burgers and halibut cheek sandwiches with cusabi (cucumber-and-wasabi dressing). A few miles north of downtown Juneau, the café's small pink building lies beyond the cruise-ship crowds; 907-790-2483, https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Hot-Bite.
