The Chart Room Restau­rant has been a fix­ture at the end of the famous Homer Spit since 1958. Today, this full-ser­vice eatery and lounge fea­tures deli­cious cui­sine made with local ingre­di­ents, and all with an Alaskan twist. But the food isn’t the only star here: You’ll also find a unique nau­ti­cal décor and a jaw-drop­ping view. Big pic­ture win­dows reveal a stun­ning land­scape out over the shim­mer­ing waters of Kachemak Bay and the snow-capped  ...more

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.

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

Rafter’s, in the Kenai Princess Wilder­ness Lodge, is a laid-back bar with a deck over­look­ing the Kenai Riv­er that serves deli­cious drinks.

Big-screen tele­vi­sions for the game. It’s fun and loud when it’s busy and serves up stan­dard pub food. If you’re look­ing for a sports bar, this is the only one. If you’re look­ing for food along­side the game, get a burg­er. The menu is aver­age and can be hit or miss, but the burg­ers are con­sis­tent­ly big and juicy, and can be ordered with buf­fa­lo, elk or caribou.
