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

We make a point to travel to the Homestead whenever we visit Alaska. Bar none the best King Crab ever! The claws are the size of a toddler's hand and the legs are so big they hang over the plate like someone dangling their legs off a dock. And then there are the shaker margaritas... Oh my. Every visit offers... More

Very nice Restaurant, a little bit out of town. The food was very good - we went there two times in a row, because we liked it so much. One evening I had the Alaskan King Crab Legs - they were the biggest ones I had ever seen. Very fresh and great taste. The second evening fresh salmon - which... More

We try to avoid going there as much as possible since we are locals. But we have some family members who insist only because it is close enough to their house that they think the Troopers won't catch them on the way home after a couple glasses of wine.. We usually eat before we go there since the plate loads... More

Everything at Homestead was excellent - the food, the service, the atmosphere, and the view. If you're in Homer, don't miss the opportunity to eat here!

We found this reastaurant on Trip Advisor before we left home. We called and made a reservation from our hotel. They are quite a ways out of town, but we got to see more of Homer, so the ride was interesting. We had a bottle wine and tthe salmon special. Service was very good, wait time was fine and meal...

We had dinner here and the view was gorgeous, the food was excellent but the service was poor. We did not order any wine and I felt like the waitress was more interested in serving those who ordered wine because she would be getting a better tip. Our bill was still $109.00 with only water to drink. It was a... More

We had read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor so we decided to try it. It is 8.5 miles from town and it takes about 15 minutes to drive out there from the middle of town. It is worth the drive. We arrived without a reservation but were able to be seated without any trouble. They specialize in Alaska products such... More

Lacy curtains, a fine view of the Kachemak Bay, a surprising wine list, and excellent cuisine combine to make the 20 minute drive from downtown Homer worth it. The service was excellent, and the cioppino,and the fish cakes were both delicious. Save room for homemade desserts. Chocolate decadence was…decadent.
