Place was recommended and I found it quite good, even discounts for the 60+ if you are cheeky enough to ask. Thought the fish was very good, the chips could have been better. Alaskan Halibut House is a cross between a restaurant/cafe and a take away. Good for my needs

After a long day of hiking, stopped in for late lunch. The Halibut was excellent. The strive was very good and the portions were generous.

On a couple past trips to Valdez I overheard others raving about this place. I finally had to try it for myself. I have to admit it wasn't quite what I expected, more along the lines of a fast food restaurant. Order at the counter and find a seat. After seeing the size of my order I think the prices... More

My daughter who is 33 said she was not hungry but agreed to go here for fish and chips. The plan was I would eat the fish and she would eat the chips. We ordered the "catch of the day" which was so succulent and juicy I will swear it was caught just before we ate it. I asked her... More

Food was OK, but nothing special and ridiculously expensive for what you got. We wished we'd just gone to the grocery store and gotten a prepared salad or sandwich instead.

Easy to find on a main street; large parking lot. Place one's order at the counter, staff bring the food to you. The fish portions were large, fresh and crispy. Halibut was a little pricey for "fast food," but, it was good!

Fresh fish, decent menu includes more than fish. Choose from various sandwiches, chicken, salad bar and of course fish which is the specialty here. The food is very good, but expensive. The serving portions of fish could be more. A little skimpy considering price. Fish prices vary on the menu according to "market price"

The halibut house has a good sandwich and I love the calamari strips. But if you order the calamari, order it without fries because you will get more. The restaurant use to be much better but for some reason has gone down hill the last few years, maybe that's why it is up for sale. The halibut sandwich is good... More

Had the halibut special received 4 very small pieces of fish with fries. My wife had the cod and fries. She said hers was good.
