The best dish were the mussels, tasty, well cooked, delicious. The raw otesters were too tiny, but good. The soups, though, very disappointing....More

Came to this place a year ago and was thoroughly impressed. What a difference a year makes! The staff and service was slow and disorganized. Some of our food was cold, and one table got it so late they almost had to eat on the...More

Rode over on the Danny J and shared a seafood tray as an appetizer, then had black cod and halibut cheeks. For dessert we shared a decadent chocolate cheesecake!

Had never heard about Halibut Cove until our stay in Soldotna, AK in June of 2015. (Trip Advisor's calendar does not go that far back.) The owners of the home we were renting said it was a must, since I was wanting to go see...More

We loved our day visiting the Homer spit, taking the Danny J Ferry to Gull Island to see wildlife and then to Halibut Cove to hike and have lunch at the Saltry. Highly recommended.

You can only get to the Saltry by boat. Our hosts arranged for the boat ride through friends who live in Homer and own a boat. The boat ride to the restaurant was the highlight of the day. The atmosphere, the location of the restaurant,...More
