Dining and Nightlife

Upscale casu­al restau­rant in Homer — part of Ocean Shores Resort — is a deli­cious des­ti­na­tion for lunch and din­ner and fea­tures amaz­ing views of shim­mer­ing Kachemak Bay and the moun­tains beyond.

Homer Brew­ing Com­pa­ny opened its doors in 1996 and has been a local fix­ture ever since. The brew­ery is open 7 days a week, until about 6pm (hours vary slight­ly, so it does­n’t hurt to call ahead). While there isn’t an offi­cial tour, you’re wel­come to look around while you enjoy your brew. 

The Salty Dawg Saloon was orig­i­nal­ly one of the first cab­ins built here in 1897, just after the town was estab­lished. Today, a vis­it to the his­toric Salty Dawg Saloon on the spit will enhance your vis­it and put you in touch with many locals. Much more than a saloon, the Dawg has reg­u­lar music per­for­mances and also serves light food.

Across the water from Homer and accessed by boat only, the Saltry serves up fresh seafood and sal­ads in the fairy-tale set­ting of Hal­ibut Cove. In a town that is con­nect­ed by board­walks, of course you’ll be eat­ing water­front. And of course, the hal­ibut and salmon is fresh. 

Sushi is the focus here, and you’ll find an exten­sive sushi menu as well as spe­cial­ty rolls. But that’s not all. Wasabi’s also does great seafood, steak, and duck entrees, all with fresh, local ingre­di­ents. There are also cre­ative drinks (and drink spe­cials), often made with infused liquors — look for the huge jar of straw­ber­ries soaked in vodka.

This fun, cool restau­rant serves up good piz­za and sand­wich­es, includ­ing a meat­ball sub that’s known through­out the Kenai Penin­su­la. Get a fill­ing, afford­able deal with the soup and sand­wich com­bos, order up a steak, and don’t miss the big, deli­cious desserts. Fat Olive’s is super pop­u­lar (make reser­va­tions) and can get loud, but the atmos­phere is great — funky, mod­ern archi­tec­ture, local art on the walls, piz­za dough thrown in an open kitchen.…  ...more

This break­fast and lunch place has a great deck that’s tai­lor made for a sun­ny day. Hang out at the espres­so bar, or dig into every­thing from French toast and huevos rancheros to fish tacos and a chick­en tik­ka pita with chutney.
