What to Eat in Juneau

If Juneau is nothing more than a quick port stop, you may not have much time to experience the city's dining scene. But you should capitalize on this opportunity to enjoy a fresh meal off your cruise ship. Thanks to Juneau's location, fresh seafood and game meat are on the menus of most local eateries. Tracy's King Crab Shack is favorite for residents and visitors. As you might've guessed from the name, its menu is mostly devoted to locally caught Alaskan crab, so if you're hoping to sample a wider selection of local seafood and produce, head to SALT. Both the atmosphere and dishes here are upscale (think filet mignon, Alaskan halibut, scallop pasta), something recent diners appreciated. The Rookery Café is another Juneau eatery that prides itself on using local ingredients with a menu that changes three to four times each week.

For a comprehensive crash course in Juneau's food scene, consider signing up for a Juneau Food Tour. The 2 ½-hour walking tour is guided by a local and includes samples at some of the city's best restaurants (including SALT and Tracy's King Crab Shack). During the tour, you'll have the chance to nosh on local favorites like Alaskan king crab, smoked salmon dip and Alaskan cod tacos.
