We always go for dinner at least one night when in Homer at the Homestead. The food is excellent and the cocktails are out of this world. If Kachemak Bay oysters are in season order them, they are a real treat and worth the price

In 2003 I ate at the Homestead for the first time-the food was incredibly good, excellent service and reasonably priced that I talked about it frequently. Fast forward to August 2014 when 7 adults were traveling in Alaska. While in Homer I recommended that we eat at the Homestead. Reservations were made for 6:30 PM on Thursday August 7th. We... More

My husband had the best, freshest king crab he has ever tasted! It was extremely expensive but a real treat. The salad was also very fresh.

This happened to be the closest restaurant to where we were staying on East End Road. We didn't want to drive into the center of Homer or the spit after a long day of fishing. The Homestead was a pleasant surprise. From the outside you would never imaging that the food would be so upscale and delicious. I highly recommend... More

For a restaurant that bills itself as a seafood restaurant they have limited choices - they were out of King Crab, Filet Mignon and mussels. Tough brown tipped romaine leaves were the main ingredient of the $6.00 side salad and the $25.00 Southern Fried Chicken entree consisted of a wing drumette and 1/4 chicken breast, the rest of the plate...

While traveling in Alaska, we found this restaurant by recommendation from someone local. It was a real treat. The scallops were large and tender....never had a better one. The service was great and all of us enjoyed everything that was served. Very nice setting with a view of the water and nice flower beds with colorful assortments that really stood... More

My B n B recommended this and it was a great place to go. It's about 7 miles along the Eastend Road, through 2 miles of roadworks but well worth it. I was welcomed on arrival and had a good table, there are some great views of the bay . The menu is fairly concise and also had some specials.... More

It was nice to visit here again after an absence of a few years. A quiet, relaxed escape in the country, far from the crowds on the strip. Suprisingly, no salmon on the menu. The duck and the halibut special were both good, but not great. The wine list is pretty nice...the best around. Service was prompt and very helpful...for... More

We ate there two nights in a row. In general they do innovative preparations of fish and the local vegetables. However the attention to detail for the price could be better. The prime rib ordered rare was definitely medium if not well done and VERY fatty. Fat is lovely but too much is inedible. The halibut special seared with mustard... More

After a ride on the ferry from Valdez to Whittier, and a drive to Homer I arrived tired and hungry. The Homestead was recommended by our innkeeper, so we were eager to try it out. The menu choices were typical of the restaurants we have frequented in Alaska, and the prices were a bit higher than average. M selected the... More
