For being a small town, Seward has some great dining options. We often recommend Ray's Waterfront, Chinooks, The Cookery, Zudy's, and the Seward Brewing Company.
Both Ray's Waterfront and Chinooks are conveniently located within walking distance of the Harbor 360 and Breeze Inn in the Small Boat Harbor. Known for its delicious seafood and steaks, as well as harbor and mountain views, Ray's Waterfront is popular with visitors and locals alike. You can't go wrong with their crab cake appetizer.
Chinooks is just a few steps down the street from Ray's. The name says it all: Chinook is another name for king salmon. The menu is chock full of Alaskan seafood dishes, from fresh halibut, to salmon, shrimp, and rockfish. Their seasonal lunch and dinner menus are always changing based on what's fresh and available that day. They also whip up some delicious cocktails.
The Cookery is located just over a mile from the harbor in downtown Seward. The atmosphere is inviting, and the fresh Alaskan oysters quite delicious. If oysters aren't your thing, they have a full menu of innovative dishes that keep in line with their farm to table values.
Although its a popular breakfast and lunch spot, Zudy's is best known for its decadent cheesecakes and pies. Delicious daily offerings are on display in a corner fridge. Zudy's is located on the bank of Resurrection Bay in a historic train depot.
The Seward Brewing Company is a great place to grab lunch, dinner, and a few beers. Near to the Alaska SeaLife Center in the heart of downtown, the Seward Brewing Company has a friendly vibe, a rotating selection of craft and Alaskan beers, and innovative pub food. Their fried cauliflower bites go especially well with a pint.
