Can't beat the view

They got a new chef this year, so that's good. I was very surprised with the elk meatloaf. Yep, you read that right. Try it. You won't be disappointed, and I'm not a meatloaf fan. Why order meatloaf when they have halibut and filet mignon on the menu? In Homer, you can get halibut and beef... read more

The view is wonderful, but the food was disappointing. The exception was the Oyster Rockefeller appetizer, which was spectacular, with fresh Kachemak Bay oysters. They were to die for, but the dinner that followed, was "average at best", to quote my husband. He had the burger & Mac n cheese; I had the Halibut Iliamna. We'll go there for a... More

On a recent visit, we had dinner there twice. The first night we had clam chowder and a Caesar salad. We shared a large salad and had plenty. The next time we ate there I had the clam, artichoke crusted halibut. It was really taste. The portion was huge. It was served with fresh steamed veggies and red potatoes. My... More

The view is spectacular but the food is the opposite and over priced. The service in the restraunt is fine but the service in the bar/holding area is the worst. The restraunt and bar is poorly managed and under staffed so expect an unplesant experence if you choose to eat here. The attitude of the wait staff in the bar... More

My husband and I took an out of town guest to the Chart Room for dinner, and were shocked at how bad everything seemed to be. First, I understand seating all of the guests along the window to see the view, but it was a nightmare for the one waitress who was working (I saw another one at one time,... More

Have gone to Homer many years to fish and enjoy Alaska. The Chart Room is a wonderful restaurant. Very good chowder. The atmosphere has beautiful bay and mountain views. Service is very good. One of my favorite places to eat in Homer.

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.

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 disappointed with the food and upset at... More

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. :)
