Art, Food, & Coastal Living in Halibut Cove!
TripAdvisor Review: “The best restaurant on the Kenai Peninsula. Period!”
“There is an easy way to say this: EAT HERE.
This restaurant is the best of everything you want if you are planning a trip to Alaska. Views? Check. Great, local food? Check. Good drink selection? Check. Great people? Check.
The seafood comes fresh every day, and is chosen carefully. The preparations are amazing, and you can’t go wrong with any Kachemak Bay staples like crab, salmon, halibut, oysters or mussels. There is nothing they do poorly here, and the small number of tables make for an intimate, special, wonderful eating experience.
Be sure to check in with the Danny J office for your ride across the bay. This special boat is the ferry service for Halibut Cove, and offers a lunch “tour” trip, and the direct dinner service. Reservations are required for The Saltry, but you can find your own way across the bay if you prefer to skip the Danny J’s services. However, the ride is worth it all in itself–the views are amazing, and the way Kachemak Bay looks from the water is amazing. If you think the view of the Kenai Range is nice when you come down the hill into Homer, wait to see what it looks like from your table at the Saltry!
This is a meal you should splurge on while you are here. Make it 3 courses, and you won’t be regretting any of it. The wait staff are all very knowledgeable, honest, and friendly. Wine or beer pairings are well made, and there is a small bar on site as well.
Overnight options exist, and some use the Danny J as their way to get to Halibut Cove and on to adventures in Kachemak Bay State Park.
Make this your destination when in Homer, AK. No trip to the End of the Road would be complete without it.”
