World Famous George Inlet Lodge Crab Feast

Enjoy a delicious Dungeness crab feast at the George Inlet Lodge. Many people consider this some of the best crab they've ever eaten and a favorite Ketchikan excursion.

The remote location just south of town will only add to your dining pleasure at the rustic, yet elegant, George Inlet Lodge. This historic building was built in the 1940s and once served as an old cannery bunkhouse. When the cannery closed in 1970, two local businessmen undertook the huge job of moving the lodge 90 miles up the George Inlet waterway to its present location at the site of an old gold mine. The lodge's warmth and charm create a relaxing experience that will be the highlight of your Alaskan journey.

Your meal features a salad in homemade Asian dressing to start, steaming hot Dungeness Crab, and a slice of rich, smooth cheesecake, smothered in Alaskan blueberries for dessert. You'll also receive one alcoholic drink and unlimited hot/cold beverages are included.

Last but not least, check out the gift shop for a special souvenir for your trip.

This was by far the best seafood I had on our trip. The staff was awesome and the owner is so nice! I would definitely go back.

Oct 2021 - Patricia D.

We really enjoyed this excursion. The crab was very good and plentiful. The ride to St George was very nice. Our driver stopped at a waterfall for pictures!

Sep 2019 - Roberta M.

They really went the extra mile to accommodate my family and I. We had a party of 7 but they only had room for 3. They were able to make extra room for my family and we had a wonderful time. Crab was wonderful, the atmosphere was great and the service was the best. Well worth the money. Thank you!

Only one word to describe this excursion: PERFECT

Jul 2019 - Dorrene S.

Great time! Staff was friendly and entertaining. I have a bad knee and they picked me up at the pier of our cruise ship. A van was available to get a lift to avoid the stairs to the restaurant. But the crab was the best! No butter needed even though it was provided. And I was full before they finished handing out more crab. Great time!

Jul 2019 - Virginia B.

Best excursion ever if you love crab! Delicious and lots of fun.

Jul 2019 - Jeannie W.

Delicious! friendly staff!

Jul 2019 - Kristie M.

Absolutely the best! Would love to return often if possible. Plenty of crab served. If you do not get your fill, you are not eating fast enough.

Jul 2019 - Ken K.

This was our second Crab Feast and it was just as delicious second time around. Again there were great personnel on the transportation over and at the restaurant. If you like crab this is a must do. Seeing all the Eagles along the way was a bonus.

Jun 2019 - JOSEPHINE P.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone! It truly was fantastic from start to finish. I love crab and I was able to eat as much as I wanted!! Great place, too, in a fabulous location. Staff super friendly. Could not have had a better experience. Thank you for a great memory!
