Although we were seated right away on the deck, we had to wait quite awhile for our server to take our order. Then we waited a long time for our food and drinks. The food was tasty and the view was spectacular

Thank you for choosing our Chart Room restaurant and I am delighted that you enjoyed your meal and the experience of dining on the shores of Kachemak Bay. Our management team is currently discussing alternative methods for assisting our service staff out on the deck. The dining on the deck has become quite popular, yet it remains an open seating...

A must stop here sit and watch the otters and whale's go buy. The food was in line cost and very good . For being on the spit it's reasonable to stop and eat.

The service took over half an hour to get our orders (the restraunt wasn't half full) and then we waited while other tables got their food before us. The final straw was the fish was left under heat lamps top long, the veggies were steamed for maybe two seconds and hard, and the potatoes weren't even cooked.

We got in late and realized that the outside patio was closed. They opened it up for the 9 of us and treated us like royalty. This is the second year in a row that I have been there in July and will plan to go back next year. The fish and chips are wonderful, the service was great and... More

The view is spectacular - we spotted whales, seals, as well as boats coming into harbor. The service, on the other hand, was excruciatingly slow, which is especially difficult with two small children. We were seated approximately 15 minutes before our server greeted us, and no bread was provided at the table (although I saw it elsewhere). Although our children's... More

We ate dinner here twice and I can't say enough about the delicious fresh seafood and steak, as well as the unbelievable view! You can see otters floating by and whales jumping in Kachemak Bay! Fantastic mountains surrounding the bay are the icing on the cake! Can't wait to come back!

Good food, service, and view next to the patio (which, of course, has a good view). Food similar to the Two Sisters, but you get a view and more modern surroundings. We liked it.

We ate here for dinner, drinks,both breakfasts, and once for desert during our stay at lands end. Loved having a restaurant in our hotel. Good food and good service. Occasionally a little slow with service but they were decently busy so understandable. They were always pleasant and staff was very friendly. The view out the water definitely helped pass the...

Wait staff was delayed in getting to us and this pushed the time past their traditional 11am cutoff for breakfast but they made an exception. Very grateful for them talking to the cooks.

Spent time in Homer Spit. Super area, food at Chart Room was good, view was better. Menu was extensive, staff super and food was good. If you dare to drive this far finish it wit the Chart Room.

Description
Long a favorite among locals and visitors alike, the Chart Room Restaurant occupies one of the most spectacular waterfront locations in Alaska. We feature local seafood and individually prepared meals in a full-service, fine dining yet family
oriented atmosphere. Enjoy the unmatched beauty of Kachemak Bay from the dining room windows; take in the awe-inspiring array of marine life and waterfowl from our outdoor deck, watch the local fleet as they round the spit and head out to sea. “Where Smiles and the Ocean Greet You at the Door!”
