The City and Borough of Wrangell (Tlingit: Ḵaachx̱aana.áakʼw) is a borough in the U.S. state of Alaska. As of the 2010 census the population was 2,369. Incorporated as a Unified Home Rule Borough on May 30, 2008, Wrangell was previously a city in the Wrangell-Petersburg Census Area (afterwards renamed the Petersburg Census Area (the Petersburg Borough was formed from part of this census area)). Its Tlingit name is Ḵaachx̱aana.áakʼw (“Ḵaachx̱an’s Little Lake” with áa-kʼw ‘lake-diminutive’). The Tlingit people residing in the Wrangell area, who were there centuries before Europeans, call themselves the Shtaxʼhéen Ḵwáan after the nearby Stikine River. Alternately they use the autonym Shxʼát Ḵwáan, where the meaning of shxʼát is unknown.

We are a seasonal full service water front restaurant in Wrangell, Alaska open April to October. The Stikine Restaurant serves up local specialties with a lunch and dinner menu along with regular chef specials from 11am-8pm. The restaurant has an attached full service lounge serving Alaskan specialty beers, wines and has a full liquor and specialty drink menu. When weather permits, we have a waterfront patio that is open for dining.
Great outdoor seating! My husband enjoyed his chicken sandwich but was sorry they didn't offer more fish dishes. Vegan me had veggie stir fry which was good but could have used more broccoli. My noodles came with rice which was strange. Service is great. Prices are high.

If you like small town diners, you'll like this little place. The staff is super friendly and nice. We had good food for lunch there. There are not a lot of options for eating in Wrangell and, in our opinion, this is one of the better ones. We like small, cozy, friendly little diner-type restaurants, so this place was right up our alley.

We actually enjoyed this small restaurant twice for lunch and loved it both times. Excellent selection of very tasty hamburgers, great fries and thick shakes which brought back memories of 50 years ago at the local joint. There was a distinct difference in what we paid in the 60's after a ball game and what we paid this time but it was definitely worth it. Outside seating with good weather, small inside when inclement. Have fun!

I love Zak's Cafe! Their seafood chowder is to die for!! Actually, I've never been disappointed by anything on their menu. I have my tried and true favorites but their daily specials are always awesome. Everything is cooked to order so you know your food will be fresh and hot! Don't forget dessert, freshly made every day. Just made myself hungry thinking about Zak's!

We ate several meals at the Stikine restrauant during the week of August 25 -29 all of them were very good. Relaxed atmosphere, on the waterfront with terrific views from the outside seating area. Service was exceptional, very friendly. Good place for family meals acceptable to children with a limited children's menu. The portions are very large. The fish tacos were great, but they used rock bass in mine rather than the Ahi tuna, but still good.

The place doesn't look like much, but what it lacks in appearance is more than made up for in content. Six of us left happy and with leftovers
