Beautiful view, nice staff

I had pepper steak, my partner had the halibut special, both were good but not exceptional. The vegetables were nicely done, not over cooked. We purchased a weekend getaway package that includes dinner, so it didn't seem so bad. I think if I had just walked in for dinner I would have been... read more

We had a good lunch here today. The view can't be beat looking over the water and at the snow covered mountains...wow! The halibut and cod were wonderful...meals included veggies and bread. Lunch meal cost $15-$20...a bit pricey but good.

We went here one weekday during the "off season" for a late lunch. We were pleasantly surprised at the food variety that included some fried and some broiled seafood options. We tried the halibut both ways and both were fantastic. The mussels were just ok. They were a little on the bland side. The broth was more water and less... More

A little pricey but the quality and service was excellent. Would definitely go back again. I recommend anything crab or halibut of course. :)

The claim in the title of my review is a big one. We're Alaskans that rarely eat salmon we did not catch ourselves. The winter King salmon dish with linguine was perfection! Great service too!

IF you like sitting bayside looking out your window looking for killer whales, eagles or just gazing at the beautiful scenery. Grab a window seat at this restaurant and enjoy your food which has been great each time I eat there. The location is great and so is the food

It all looked delicious. I recommend the Land's End eggs Benedict or smoked salmon and goat cheese salad with a lemon vinegarette. I'm not normally AA goat cheese person but this had a wonderfully creamy, buttery flavor and texture.

Thank you for choosing our Chart Room restaurant and for taking the time to post. Our brunch menu has become very popular. The Land's End Benedict is my second favorite right behind the Vanilla-Rum French Toast and right in front of the Chorizo & Black Bean Migas. More

I swore off this place a few years ago. But limited dinner options in Jan in Homer had us there with company in from Canada. Blackened rockfish was dry and was cooked in way too much oil. It actually tasted like chicken. Over a bed of what looked and tasted like breakfast square potatoes. There was likely a sweet chili... More

If you don't expect much from the food or the service you will still enjoy the view. There are few places in the world where you can eat a sandwich and watch for otters.

Land's End has always been known for it's bar. The drinks are great and the wait staff-esp. Liz-terrific. Too bad the food doesn't measure up. Although the burgers are pretty good. In a place with so much abundance from the sea you can pretty much count on the fish being overcooked and the price you pay astronomical.
