“Salty Dawg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

A trip to Homer would not be complete without stopping in for a drink at the Salty Dawg! It is fun to read the notes on all the dollars filling the walls!

“Neat and Novel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The place is pretty cool - dollar bills pinned to all the walls. It was fun to visit and they served great drinks. It was a fun visit. Even at 6pm, it was pretty busy.

“Rude staff and very un-clean.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Expensive beer, poor service, and rude staff. The place reeks of urine and there is water damage evident ever where. It is unique but surely the amount of tourism has jaded the people who work there. It also has a theft problem and expect to get ripped off by the bar tenders. Most of these review that are saying it is great are coming from out of towners. I live and Homer and I can assure there are better bars with nicer people.

“Check your attitude at the door.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This place has no pretentions of grandeur. It's a hole- in -the -wall fisherman's/tourist bar with a storied history. Like it or not, the Dawg is THE spot on The Spit. First threw back a shot there in 1981 after two friends and I drove to Alaska from RI. and always make it a point to stop in and raise a glass to friends gone but not forgotten.

“Look out for the NZ $1 bill hanging from the shelf behind the bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Nothing can describe how cute this place is! Decor - $1 bills with notes of wisdom...plus or minus a few jokes! Staff - helpful and friendly, locals - a breed of their humorous own and location perfect. A truly iconic place!
