The Chart Room is our go-to "fancy" dining in Homer. Located at the end of the spit, this restaurant offers amazing views, delicious food, and great service. Choose anything on their menu - everything is delicious! There are GF options - just ask!

Elk Meat Loaf is a huge hit, but everything is done to perfection. From breakfast, to soups, salads, and dinner, everything is very good.

We enjoyed the view and the food was good. The prices are 5 star. The waiter was so unfriendly he seemed rude. He quickly delivered our food and without so much as a smile went away. If we requested something he gave a grunt of acknowledgement and delivered what we requested, promptly. We wondered if we had offended him in... More

The fries tasted good,not spectacular but good. The Halibut was okay. I did not care for the Asian cole slaw cabbage shreds that was on the plate but I figure it was on the plate mostly for decoration anyway. The tartar sauce did not do much for me. I can't describe what the problem was it just wasn't to my... More

We were a party of 5 for lunch at the Chart Room two days before Christmas. The first thing you notice is the view out the large windows. I can only imagine how eating on the outside deck in the summer would be! First, the Bloody Mary's are excellent! My wife liked the Mermaid Punch. We definitely recommend the crab... More

As a local I want to rate this restaurant higher but I can't. The three stars are for the views. The food lacks any culinary wow factor. And some servers can be obnoxiously friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Though I am pleased that you appreciated the view, I regret that you didn't enjoy your meal, or the service. I believe that the lack of "wow factor" is not our norm. I see that you are a local, if you don't have plans for New Year's Eve, I would... More

This breakfast and lunch menu is fabulous and affordable. I loved the smoked salmon and goat cheese salad while the husband loved the kalbi chicken wings. The ocean view is so calming and the waiter is friendly and very professional. The evening meal service is average and the food quality is not quite worth the price you pay. The ambiance... More

We both got the clam chowders it was delish but pretty creamy and heavy so maybe get the cup not bowl if you aren't starving. My friend got the beef teriyaki special, I did not try it but he said it wasn't bad. Liked what I ordered more though -- the elk meatloaf which was incredible! It's on top of... More

Thank you for choosing our Chart Room restaurant. I am thrilled that you enjoyed the Elk Meatloaf which is a fan favorite. When our Chef introduced that item, I thought he was crazy!

Had read the previous reviews so decided to try. We were the only patrons there initially so was a little worried about the food. But since we were already there decided to give it a try. Glad we did. The food was amazing. Had the Halibut Iliamna which melted in my mouth. The halibut was flaky. Vegetables were cooked perfectly.... More

Bouillabaisse was very good. Had the lunch portion that the waitress said was half the dinner size and was more than enough. Prices were a little high but in line with the quality of food. Service was very good and the view was fantastic.

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!”
