THC is no longer in business at this location (which all of us are very bummed out about!) but they did sell their recipes to The Best Western hotel restaurant called The Wheel House so we can still eat this TO DIE FOR FOOD there....More

I have never been a fish taco guy, the rock fish tacos at this place are ridiculously amazing. We stopped by at the end of the tourist season and were the only ones in the place and they cooked up some of the most delicious...More

Loved the sauces on both our Seafood and rice dish, and our Halibut in a lemon sauce. Delicious! Friendly and attentive restaurant staff. Thanks for the window table, courtesy of our early reservation!

The food is terrible and over-priced. The service was a small step above horrible. We loved the original Harbor Cafe...this place is NOT the same food under a different roof. Avoid!

The Harbor Cafe is closed. Luckily, they are now in the Off-the-Hook Grill in the Best Western restaurant! Yay! They have the same menu as well as an additional dinner menu as part of the new restaurant. Still great food.

Located on the marina frontage, it is well suited for a quick burger or sandwich. A family of rabbits lives under the deck so the kids will have fun watching them romp around while waiting for your food.

I eat at THC everytime I visit Valdez and it never disappoints. Their menu is large, the food is always delicious, and the service is always good.

The Burgers are awesomely delicious! all the locals go there! if you're there even for just a day and had to choose only one place to go I would highley recommend THC and even if you don't want a burger they have great salads.

I dont think they have website yet ,but i tell you its the best food in town by far. Best Burgers(about 16 different), Seafood(Halibut and Salmon), outstanding seafood chowder. Nice ambiance and alfresco dinning.The owners work it every day and the Peruvian touch to their recipes make it a real delight to eat there.
