Best place for Fish & Chips

There are many posts that indicate these salmon have the highest amount of omega-3 fatty acids giving them their “rich, moist and delicious flavor”.

 

I think this is what helps this fish to command the retail price that it does.  There are many who believe that Omega-3 Fatty Acids reduce the risk of Cancer or Cardiovascular Disease.  According to Wikipedia, there is no high quality evidence that supports that theory.  But, if it tastes good and may, indeed, be good for one, why not spend the money to buy the fish?

We learned about the Sandbar on CC before our 2019 cruise. We parked around back where there is an entrance to the dining area. There was a group of locals having lunch and talking local town issues. There was a commercial fisherman who got a phone call and left saying that this was his last warm meal for a month on his way to the boat. It really was a taste of local Juneau and the fish and chips were great.

 

Did you rent a car to get there?   A cab ride is about $25 from the cruise dock to Sandbar.

We rented a car for the day in Juneau. We went to Mendenhall before the tour buses got there, the shrine of Sainte Therese, Eagle Beach, Douglas Island etc.

Where did you rent your car?  Thinking about doing that while we’re there

We rented from Avis from their office on Mill Street near the AJ Dock. According to other posters, Avis is not going to have that office open this year.

Look at Junea Car Rental company on Industrial Blvd, almost across the street from the Sand Bar and great halibut. No airport fee, cars tend to be more used, but the prices reflect it. Affectionately called "Juneau Beaters" by the locals. If you rent for a day or more drive out to the 'end of the road', Cowee Creek. You won't get lost, only one road. If you have four or five hours, hike out the trail at Point Bridget State Park. Best views in SEAK. Stop at the Shrine of St. Terese. Limited time? Take in Gastineau Hatchery. Best tourist stop in town for the buck. You might have to get a cab to the car rental.Split it with another couple. Montana Creek road, drive to end, park and walk the trail/old road up the creek. Should be full of salmon now, beautiful level walk.

Hopefully, this thread can return to the original topic; "Best Place for Fish and Chips".

Does anyone know of one in Icy Strait or Prince Rupert?

There are several small restaurants near the Welcome Center.  I don't know the name of any nor did I patronize any of them.

A short walk to the main tourist area will give you the chance to sample the offerings of the Crab Station.

The first time in my life (age 31 at the time) where I enjoyed fish and chips was at the Red Dog Saloon in Juneau. I really don't eat seafood but figured I better try a bite of my wife's plate.... and ended up eating half her order!

The Crab Station does not have fish and chips.

We only saw three restaurants near the welcome center when there at the end of June. The Crab Shack (no fish and chips), a smokehouse type place (no fish and chips) and a third that was closed (menu had fish and chips...but they were closed).

Yup... pretty much a physical impossibility, especially halibut, but it sounds pretty "Alaskan". Guys have gone to jail for selling halibut from a sport boat to a 'fish and chips' slopshoot. Halibut longliners go out for days, if not weeks at a time. The vast majority of halibut sold to tourists has been frozen. Locals, and some visitors can taste the difference.
