If it's on-site (it isn't always) and open (same story), Big Al's offers some of the best fish and chips we'vew ever had. Because the fish is locally-caught, the selection varies in type of fish and portion size, but the salmon fish and chips we...More

We had amazing food from this little unassuming food trailer. Extremely fresh salmon and halibut. The rockfish sandwich is a rock star. The service and cleanliness was top notch. We ate here several times in a few days. Don't pass this place up.

We were recommended Al's Salmon shack from our RV park, and unfortunately it was closed that night. We had some for lunch the next day, and although not cheap, it was really good. It seems to be only open for lunch at the moment.

THE fish and chips place in Haines. And the shrimp basket is to die for. Quick service, outdoor seating or take it home. Great for families.

The best fish and chips in town, by far. We eat there often during the summer. The fish is fresh, the service is fast, and the meal is excellent and reasonably priced.
