    I just wrote a long answer to a similar question on one of the other Juneau threads. Also, There's a place called the Thane Oar House that seems touristy at first but they have the best Halibut and chips in town and it's actually a fun place, horseshoes out back, great for groups. It's out of town a couple miles but pile in a van cab- it's worth it!

      In Juneau, try the Twisted Fish or Hangar on the Wharf. IOf course all the hotels do seafood and everything is in season now. I'd try the Baranof or the Prospector. There are several sushi options but for a larger group, I'd go to the sushi bar at the Canton House. Its been way too long since I ate in Skagway to give you any really good recommendations there.

      Hope you have a good time.

        Is the Summit Restaurant still around? Someone said they thought it was a souvenir shop now?

          Alas, the Summit is no longer. I recall a day when my friend managed it and my husband waited tables just because he liked doing that. Ah, the meals we had!

        The sushi bar I saw in Skagway when I was there recently was small and casual- not where I'd bring a lage party.
