Besides these restaurants, see the Best Western Landing, Narrows Inn, Cape Fox Lodge, and New York Hotel, all above, for other choices that are among the best in town.

There are several good stops for light meals or snacks. The Smith family's Alaskan Surf Fish and Chips booth comes back to the dock every summer, to the delight of locals and cruise-ship crew members who line up at lunchtime. The fish is halibut with beer batter, and they also serve shrimp and great clam chowder. Picnic tables are handy for seating on a sunny day. Halibut Hole, 7 Creek St., on the deck of the Eagles Club (tel. 907/225-5162), serves some of the best fried fish in town, including halibut, salmon, clams, and shrimp in crispy batter, with fries and hush puppies. It's open daily 11am to 4pm in the summer and accepts cash only.
