“Great seafood and views of Cook Inlet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We stopped here for lunch and both had the grilled halibut sandwich. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. Nice soft bun, fresh tomatoes, homemade cole slaw and nice crisp French fries. Everything was delicious and would highly recommend is place. Wonderful views of the Cook Inlet and snow covered mountains in the distance. Our server was attentive and friendly.

“Beautiful day, awesome view and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Having lived in Seattle area we love fresh seafood but we currently live in TN so we don't get it nearly often enough. Captain Patties was perfect...on Homer Spit, mid August on a nice & sunny day. Wish they had outside seating! I had grilled seafood platter with cup of chowder and he had fried seafood platter so we shared the prawns, scallops, halibut and salmon. Bit pricey for lunch but normal for Alaska. Such a treat!

“Raw fish. Bad service. Dont go end of season.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Delivered grilled sea platter with raw salmon on dish, admitted to it being undercooked and did nothing. Once we complained server only took off $5 from check.
Salads ving. Dressing super thick lke jam and did not taste good at all.
Server said they were closing in a week and you could sure tell by the food. YUCK. Pretty view though.

“Pricey, but plentiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

A real nice place on the Spit - if you are hungrey and want fresh seafood done right - then don't roll the dice. Pay the extra money and enjoy a great meal in an elegant setting. Service matched the food - terrific. As the saying goes - "You get what you pay for!" We were more than satisfied! Yummy local beers too!

“Busy, busy, busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

As this restaurant is on the Spit, it is very busy. There are other places to get your seafood fix, but this place is the most visited. Honestly, there are other options, and you will likely need to seek them out--reservations are hard to come by.

Pretty good, but not "the" place to go by any means. It gets a lot of references because of being on the Spit and having a great view of the Bay. However, there are other places that have a nice view and also serve the same caliber of seafood.

It is a nice option for those that are looking for a place to eat with tablecloths, and who want to eat on the Spit.
