A class gourmet restaurant that locals love! Eat where the locals go and you'll find good food! Here the freshest of local seafood and the best Prime Rib. Excellent bar also

The best date night restaurant in Homer for probably 50 years. It's still just as good as it was in the '80's.

Best part was it was on a gift card, and only cost us $2.00 including the tip. Waitress was excellent, as was the food and atmosphere, as always.

Travel a little off the beaten tourist path and find this place. We read good reviews and went looking. If you think you're in the middle of nowhere, you are; just keep going! We went Wednesday night which we discovered was 2 for 1 appetizer night. Calamari that was melt in your mouth good with a zesty sauce on the... More

I was so happy that I finally tried this restaurant during my visit to Homer since it was one of our best meals. Everything was perfect! My crab legs were some of the best I had in Alaska and the prime rib was cooked to perfection! Service was outstanding as well. I will be sure to come back on my... More

A little hard to find but once we did finally turn the right way what a treat! Megan's bright smile and sunny disposition took great care of us at the table and the chef, Gary, cooked up amazing dishes that were well seasoned and succulent. The drinks from the bar were worthy as well. A definite place to hit on... More

We drove by earlier in the day and decided to give it a try for dinner. We were not disappointed. Very friendly, very clean, very attentive service. Good wine selection and our server was knowledgeable about the wines. Meals were served in a timely manner and all of our meals were very good, prepared well and fresh ingredients. The atmosphere...

This was recommended to us. I'm afraid it's just an average older family style restaurant. Simple food competently cooked but that's all. Expensive for what you get. From the cafe curtains to a music choice of mixed middle of the road you get a feeling that time has passed the restaurant by. The wait staff bustled around but atmosphere was... More
