Overlooking the Gastineau Channel, above Taku Smokeries, with high ceilings and an wall of windows on the water, lots of local harwoods and a beach rock fireplace, Twisted fish is a wild place for wild fish! Called "Juneau's premier dining experience", they feature wild Alaskan seafood with a waterfront view.

Great location next to Mount Roberts Tramway in the Taku Smokeries Building at 550 South Franklin Street, the Twisted Fish Co. features local seafood like sauteed Alaskan Rockfish and Gingered Ahi in addition to local salmon and halibut.
