When we got back from our day at Kachemak Bay State Park, the usual Halibut and chips places were already filling up. A local businessman on the spit recommended Fresh Catch as an alternative. We were a little apprehensive since the place was nearly empy when we arrived, but soon filled to capacity. Obviously, the seafood in the recipies were... More

Definitely one of the freshest seafood meals of my lifetime! I had halibut and salmon seared over a king crab risotto for 38$. It was well with it for this incredible meal! Fish cooked to perfection, juicy with a light crunch on the crust. Delicate flavones all working together, food swoon!!

During our vacation in Homer we wanted to have dinner at the "spit". We made no reservation, so we ended up with long waiting time. We looked for an alternative and found the Fresh Catch Cafe only a few minutes away. What a positive surprise. Food was delicious. Basicly one of the best food on our whole three weeks trip.... More

Fresh Catch Cafe was a nice change to all of the other fresh halibut and salmon we had been eating on vacation. They put a modern twist on seafood, which was delicious and refreshing!

Great little restaurant in Homer with stunning views and friendly service. All dishes ordered were great, but the red fish curry was one of the best meals of the trip. Seafood sampler was the only disappointment. And no wait to eat during peak season.

So glad we chose this restaurant, it was recommended to us by the ladies in the Salty Girl shop. I had the dish with red curry, salmon & halibut, my serving was huge, therefore I could bring home my lunch for the next day. Served hot and perfectly seasoned with fresh ingredients. So good!

It was so delicious we went here twice. We had the king crab halibut risotto, the mussels with chili lime kafir coconut milk and black bean rockfish soup. The flavors were great without being overpowering. My dad had the ribeye with king crab legs and mentioned that the steak was good. I think what they are really doing the best... More

This is a classy place on the Homer Spit. I was pleasantly surprised by the huge portion sizes. My ceasar salad was classically made and the anchovies on top, super fresh but it was huge so good size for two people. I wanted something with a mix of all of the in season seafood and was thrilled with the seafood... More

Went for lunch and then went back for dinner. This chef knows how to prepare seafood - especially salmon and halibut. TheThai inspired preparations are out of this world - lots of fresh veggies and the sauces.....best mussels ever! The herb crusted salmon with mussels and clams in miso and the king crab risotto with halibut - perfection. Lovely ambiance... More

From what we've seen so far of Alaska cuisine this might be worth four stars on a relative scale. Good beers on tap (if you don't like hoppy beers the Homer Brewery lager is very good) and a handful of drinkable wines. At 7:30 they were out of the peel and eat shrimp but had most everything else. Salads were... More
