Long a favorite among locals and visitors alike, the Chart Room Restaurant occupies one of the most spectacular waterfront locations in Alaska. We feature local seafood and individually prepared meals in a full-service, fine dining yet family
oriented atmosphere. Enjoy the unmatched beauty of Kachemak Bay from the dining room windows; take in the awe-inspiring array of marine life and waterfowl from our outdoor deck, watch the local fleet as they round the spit and head out to sea. “Where Smiles and the Ocean Greet You at the Door!”

Gorgeous views of the bay!

The views from the restaurant of Kachemak Bay & the mountains, sea birds, bald eagles, otters, and fishing boats are unsurpassed. The breakfast hash, clam chowder, and fish & chips were quite good. The kitchen can be very slow so be prepared to wait quite some time for your food. The wait staff is... read more

the restaurant offers grand views of the bay, snow capped mountains, ocean birds and animals, glaciers, and colorful boats entering and exiting the harbor. The coffee first served was from a box (condensed coffee syrup added to warm water). My egg plate (eggs, toast, bacon) was cold. Tasty but cold. Wait staff was excellent, friendly, and wishing to serve (that's... More

The breaded rock fish and mixed berry pie were excellent as well as the service. We also enjoyed the spotlights lighting the beach. A perfect evening in Homer.

Did lunch here; the view can not be beat. They had live music; we requested a table away from that, and they cheerfully complied. Fish this fresh can't be beat; service was decent, prices were fair... no real complaints. RECOMMENDED!

Overall the the food is average and a little overpriced. The views are incredible but the service and food quality were just average. There are better options with the short drive into town (that we found the following day)

So far this is the best food we have found in Homer. We are local and have been searching for a restaurant where we won't leave feeling like we have waisted our money on the food!
