We stopped in and enjoyed listening to a group singing sea shanties. Bring a dollar bill or to leave tacked to the wall. A true original. Pool tables in the back. No beer on draft but a good selection of Alaskan brews alongside the usual Bud.

In Homer Spit this place is an icon open since 1957... just a little old lighthouse, small doors and two rooms one with a pool table. When entering into the "dark" you'll see nothing but walls and ceiling cover with thousands of dollar bills signed by clients from over the world. With an strange atmosphere that makes us appreciate a... More

Very cool place to visit. It is a must if you are in Homer. The folks who work there are super friendly and the beer is cold. It can get crowded, but we had a great time.

People stop here just to say they've been here! Friendly service the few times I've gone. Don't expect a classy, upscale wine bar; this place has underwear and bras hanging on the wall and graffiti written on the bathroom walls. They repaint once a year. You can also write on a dollar and place it on the walls, ceilings or... More

This is a must if you are in the vicinity. I found the bartender to be very welcoming from the minute I walked in the door. He was also very knowledgeable and willing to talk about local history. The place is covered with dollar bills signed with visitors names or comments. So, sit at the bar, grab a sharpie they... More

Located on the spit, this is a fun place to stop for a couple of drinks. Friendly patrons and staff. Be sure to leave a dollar bill behind - with a personalized note.

This is one of those places that you have to see even if you don't buy anything. The lady bartender was great, explained the history behind the thousands of dollar bills taped, stapled, nailed, thumbtacked and attached to almost every surface of the walls, ceilings, doors and other surfaces. Customers were the exact clones of characters you've met in every... More

You have to stop at this favorite spot, grab a beer, and leave a one dollar bill on the wall with your name on it! It's a fun place to visit. It's a must if you are visiting the Spit! Cheers

We heard about the dollar bills covering the walls, but we never expected SO MANY, taking up just about every available space of this small bar. About the only things not covered in dollar bills were the bar stools, benches, and tables, and from the looks of it, that'll happen soon too. It almost feels like the dollar bills are... More

This place has lots of character and is open all year. It is covered with dollar bills all over and at the end of the year they donate all the money to the employees favorite charity. The salty dog is a grapefruit and vodka with salt around the rim. Fun atmosphere.
