You might have heard, Juneau seafood is to die for — salmon, halibut, and crab make up the Alaskan seafood trifecta. Don’t forget about regionally caught scallops, spot prawns, and Dungeness crab! Don’t forget to take home a gift of smoked salmon.
If you’re looking for more than seafood, Juneau offers a variety of delicious options. Eat locally foraged fare prepared by an award-winning chef. Enjoy handcrafted hamburgers and satisfying pub food. Tempt your taste buds with pizza, or grab a panini. The choices are practically endless, and all are within walking distance of your ship or downtown hotel.
What’s more satisfying than a warm, fresh-brewed coffee on a damp Juneau day? Juneau has two local roasteries and prides itself on selections of sustainably grown and Fair Trade Certified beans. You’ll find a family-owned and operated coffee shop or kiosk on almost every block and at several drive-through locations. And don’t forget the fresh baked goods!
Local Craft Brews and Spirits
Drinks in the capital city are as unique as wild as the terrain they're sourced from. Billed as one of America’s most decorated breweries, Alaskan Brewing Company is a Juneau institution and a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Juneau is also home to its first distillery - Amalga Distillery. Harvesting local, fresh ingredients, these spirits are uniquely Alaskan, uniquely Juneau.
You don’t have to be downtown to get great food. Head out to the Valley, Auke Bay, or over to Douglas Island for some of the tastiest food in Alaska. For a large selection of Juneau restaurants, check out our dining guide.
