Equally known as the best steakhouse AND seafood place in town, if you make the trip out and place an order, you're almost guaranteed satisfaction. The steaks are world-famous, and the seafood satisfies even the pickiest local. This restaurant also offers a FREE SHUTTLE, which is a bonus if you are here rental car-less, or just feel like letting someone else drive for the night.
Favorite Dish: Once you've dug into the best salad bar in town, it is hard to stop, but remember: save room for the main course!

I like the atmosphere of this place--it's small, so you do sit rather close to the people next to you, but it's a place where locals hang out, everyone is very friendly and the decor is victorian. It's also not at all expensive (for breakfast and lunch--I haven't had dinner here) and they have some great things on the menu. Swedish pancakes, belgian waffles, biscuits and gravy (for breakfast)
The have good sandwiches, fresh fish, pastas and crab louie for lunch and dinner.
Favorite Dish: The waffles are good and I've had a few sandwiches. I don't know how you can go wrong w/ these things...

The food is excellent here...and it's nice because get the choice of either the dining room (which has more real dinners and is more of an expense) or the lounge which also has a full menu, but more sandwiches and appetizers. It's located on an upper floor of the Westmark Shee Atika Hotel in the middle of town, so either place you choose to dine, you're offered a spectacular view of Sitka, the water and the mountains. The service is good, the food is fresh, the alcohol keeps coming:) I took my father here when he was visiting and he still talks about the food he got, saying it was the best steak he had in a long time...pretty good for a little island in Alaska!
Favorite Dish: Like I said, everything is good...I don' t know of anyone being unhappy here. They are known for their chowder, but I know the Cajun Halibut Salad is wonderful, as is the steak salad and the shrimp scampi.

I swear, people fly into Sitka's airport and come off the plane asking where the restaurant is. If they only took 30 seconds, they would find it since the airport is about the size of my garage. But, the pilots must promote this place because they are known for their pie...coconut cream, is the one that sticks in my mind. They have a great variety of sandwiches, entrees, soups, seafood, great breakfast food and other stuff too...alcohol as well. We used to meet at the airport for lunch faily often (free parking at the airport!) and people gather there all the time. It's a good place...
Favorite Dish: The desserts are what's known throughout the Alaska Airlines circuit...

Sitka definitely isn't lacking when it comes to coffee shops. You can get specialty coffee drinks anywhere...the grocery stores, downtown, McDonalds (the serve GOOD coffee--"Seattle's Best") but I like the atmosphere of the Mojo cafe and the Backdoor. I'm just writing one tip about the 2 because they are literally 2 doors away from each other. The Backdoor cafe is located in the back of Old Harbor Books and the easiest way to get there is to go right through the bookstore. The Mojo is a couple doors down. Both have good food, they make soups,sandwiches, dessert and have other daily specials. The Mojo has little things to play with too--like magic 8 balls:) I find that the Backdoor Cafe gets a little more crowded than the Mojo but the Mojo does have live music sometimes.
Favorite Dish: I had a good roasted vegetable sandwich from the Mojo and only have had coffee from the Backdoor...but I know the soups are also good.

Everyone is Sitka will tell you this place is wonderful. You must make a reservation and it's a little expensive, but definitely worth it. They change their menu constantly, too. Most people don't know about this place if they are visiting b/c the majority of people come on cruise ships.
Favorite Dish: Mmmm...everything is good. The lemon custard was wonderful, the rockfish was great...good drinks, too.

This is a nice little store front bistro is located on Katlain Street where all the fisherman and packing houses are located. I can't say that we ate here, but this appeared to be a very nice place and it was packed when we walked by the window. Being within walking distance and near the Pioneer Bar, this would be a good alternative to the shuttle out to The Channel Club for a seafood dinner. The prices were more reasonable and the food looked very good. Next time in Sitka this will be one of the first places we try. Rustic Mediterranean fare specializing in Alaskan seafood - fresh - and hand-crafted specialty foods and baked bread. Reservations recommended. Cocktails served. Credit cards accepted handicap accessible.
Summer hours: Tuesday through Friday lunch 12:00p-3:00p, Tuesday through Saturday 5:00p-10:00p Dinner. Winter hours: Tuesday through Saturday 5:00p-10:00p.

Off the lobby of the Sitka Hotel, Victoria's is a fine choice for breakfast or lunch. They had a fairly extensive breakfast menu. The portions were large and the prices reasonable. The servers were lighthearted and very nice. The lunch menu also looked decent. During the summer they also feature a full dinner menu.
Favorite Dish: Victoria's Special Breakfast. Sliced grilled steak with onions and peppers served with eggs and cheese. The portions are large and the food is tasty. This one sticks to the ribs.

After many seafood dinners, we could not supress our craving for Mexican food while in Sitka. After asking directions, we walked from Sheldon Jackson Museum to Sitka National Historic Park. There we took the left entrance of the Totem Trail. (From the front of the visitor's center) We paused at Indian Creek bridge to watch the salmon run, and continued our walk across the bridge to Sawmill Road. We walked another quarter mile to the right on Sawmill Road past a beautiful Russian Orthodox roadside memorial and the restaurant was on the left. It is located in an old blue gas station. It was well worth the long walk.
The restaurant itself is in a funky old gas station, though inside it was pleasent enough. The food was as authentic and quite tasty. We also had Mexican while in Juneau and this little joint cost less and had better food. Of course it came with free chips and tasty homemade salsa, and a local Mexican family in the kitchen.
Favorite Dish: I highly recommend the chile relleno, enchilada, tamale combination.
