Tracy Labarge

Best legs in town: What started off as a joke between Tracy and her friends 15 years ago is now not only a reality, it’s a statement this crab shack owner takes seriously. Five restaurants later, Tracy’s King Crab Shack is the top spot to grab a bucket of legs in Juneau.

For the love of crab: After crabbing for her first time in 1996, she was hooked. “It’s fascinating! The pulling of the pots, the cleaning of the crab, the scenery and, of course, the taste — it’s all amazing!”

Navigating rough waters: Tracy believes every cloud has a silver lining. Tracy contributes her success to her friends, family, community and customers who have helped her along the way.
