We went after being told by a friend we had to stop here. You have to go to the bar to order your drinks. The bar maid just picks up the empties. You can't use a credit card here. They gladly point you to the ATM machine. Wish they served food in here but they don't. We came here several... More

The staff are super friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is buzzing and the place is an iconic landmark (both inside and out) in Homer Spit.

This place will never change & I don't ever want it to! It's a must stop for every trip to Homer. I still didn't get a hoodie though!

Touristy but still fun. Very crowded with about 10,000 dollar bills and other crazy things hanging everywhere. They don't take credits cards and I don't think they have draft beer. The older female bartender was kind of rude but that strangely went ok with the atmosphere! There are surprisingly very few bars on the Spit so slim pickings. Good to... More

We where exploring the Homer Spit and we stopped in the Salty Dawg Saloon just to check it out. It is not fancy but something to see if you are there just to say you stopped In. Dollar bills pasted everywhere inside and not a very big place. I didn't get the welcome feeling and we didn't stay long. When... More

I have to say we were disappointed with our visit. Amazing location, and a quirky building that evoked atmosphere. However, once inside the atmosphere never developed. Cannot believe that with such a good quality brewery in Homer, this place does not do draught beer. Were not particularly made welcomed, and in fact while at the bar, another tourist was complaining... More

Had heard from friends, you have to,have a beer at the Salty Dog. Well we,had several,on more than one visit while in town for 3 days. Looks sort of like the bar in Chicken, Ak. All of the dollars on the walls, ceilings etc. need a few snacks, and maybe start taking credit cards, when on vacation, which most folks... More

We loved this shop, next to the Exotic Eye Tattoos place, it was the most fun on the spit. We found lots of treasures to take home with us.

The inside of this bar is crazy, every inch is covered in dollar bills. There is a bear foot hanging above the bar, human skull on the wall, bras hanging from the cealing and free condoms in the toilet! Both locals and tourists use the bar, giving it a great atmosphere. The guy behind the bar was chatty and up... More
