So much history when you walk in. Make sure you bring a dollar bill to hang on the wall with your message. We put one up 2 years ago, and its still there! Great drinks and atmosphere.

On the famous Homer Spit this bar is fantastic to hang out with local fishermen and tourists too...listen to their famous fishing stories (Including the local residents of Time Bandit) and leave a dollar on the celing or walls with literally thousands of others....the money over time is donated. And don't forget to buy one of their hoodies or tshirts... More

A friend and I toured Homer for my birthday. We stopped in at the Salty Dawg for a celebratory drink. One was enough. It's a rough crowd of local fishermen when you are there out of season, and crowded to the gills with tourists around when you are there in season. We did the drink and bought obligatory souvenirs. It's... More

We were looking for a cold one and happen upon this place. When you walk in all you see are dollar bills stapled to the wall. Thousands of them. The seating was limited but we found a few available. There was a guy and girl singing old sailing songs making it feel like a real sailors bar. Which late on... More

this was a really unique place to visit they had dollar bills stapled all over the inside. walls-ceiling doors etc. The place was very busy, the service extremely slow. The bar maid seemed more interested in visiting with the locals then even serving the tourist. Glad we stopped-just for the experience.

It was the end of the season so I'm sure that is why it was a nice quiet bar. Relaxed bartenders, a mix of local and tourist.

We had read about the dollar bills on the walls but had no idea just how many, My goodness what an experience..dollar bills everywhere! Since there is no food served, we had a beer, bought a t-shirt and left. It was worth the stop. Very nice bartender as well.

This place is not for everyone. But it is definitely part of the fishing/charter culture of Homer. It is a rough and rugged place for sailors and fishermen. And we felt right at home. it is a real local hangout - not a tourist place. Come in quiet and get to know some locals. Stay awhile and meet some new... More
