I Break My Fast at Tracy’s King Crab Shack

After last night’s uber-indulgent meal at the Murano aboard the Celebrity Century, I felt it was important to take care of my physical well-being and fast (you know, not eat for an extended period of time). My fast lasted until I got ashore and found Tracy’s King Crab Shack in Juneau, Alaska.

True story, once I was ashore I started looking for somewhere to eat; the first jewelry store (it seems the only kind of store in Juneau are jewelry stores) I walked into I asked the pretty girl where one can get a good meal in Juneau and she replied, “All the restaurants in Juneau are pure crap. The only place worth eating is at Tracy’s King Crab Shack.

Well, with a recommendation like that, where else is a fella supposed to go? Off to Tracy’s I headed.

Tracy’s is a tiny little food-truck like operation on the shore in the shadow of the docked cruise ships.


I decided that I had to try the King Crab legs, the crab bisque, the crab cakes and the Alaskan Brewing Company Rootbeer. And I did.

The big-time Boston Bruins fans standing over the crab pot dished me up a plate of King Crab legs. And I started to eat.


Crab cakes? Delicious. Truly delicious. Tender little morsels packed perfectly with crab, breaded and golden-fried. A quick dip into the spicy side sauce…mmmmm.

Then I ate my crab bisque. Exquisite is the word. Ecstasy…one of those foodie moments. Unbelievable.








If perchance you find yourself in Juneau, Alaska, forget about the whale watching tours and kayaking trips. Get yourself down to Tracy’s King Crab Shack for a unforgettable lunch.

    Nice. I had the Bisque at Tracy’s in 2008 and can still remember it. Best I ever had.
