The food is great (try the reindeer sausage); the portions are large (better be hungry); the prices are reasonable!

Thank you and thanks for your review on TripAdvisor. Another recent comment via email "Gwin's and Alaska were incredible! We had a blast and appreciate the excellent accommodations and bookings. We will be back but have to rest up a bit first. "

It was Fourth of July and many of the other restaurants were closed by the evening time. We stumbled upon Gwen's and it was wonderful! We all enjoyed our food...good portions and reasonable prices! Very casual but comfortable.....highly recommend! Great service!

Delicious warm pie and very friendly wait staff. We had huckleberry, marion berry and blueberry. The chowder was good too.

Stopped here on a rainy Sunday on our way from Anchorage to Homer. Had read about their salmon chowder, and planned this stop as our lunch break. Glad we did - service was friendly (thanks, Amelia), and the chowder was the perfect tonic to a damp, chilly day. This was the weekend before Memorial Day, and we were disappointed to find that it wasn't open when we left Homer for Seward a couple of days later. Probably open every day in season. We would highly recommend stopping

Thanks! Yes we are open 7 days a week now. 9A-9P and starting 6/10/17 from 8A-10P. Try our famous CARROT CAKE next time also! We will be having our NEW adjacent kitchen open for "fast food" and packed lunches soon, located to the right of Gwin's.

We really liked this place. We met a retired fishing guide (can't remember his name) who gave us some advice about hikes nearby as well as fishing. The burger was really good!
