Walking through the bustling Homer Harbor is fun in itself, but boarding the Danny J and meeting the crew got things really going. During the scenic trip to Halibut Cove we stopped whenever we saw Humpback Whales close by as well as puffins and other shore birds. As we entered into the protected waters of Halibut Cove we passed a... More

My husband and I went to the Saltry for our anniversary dinner and it was the most special evening. The Danny J Boat Ride out to Halibut Cove was beautiful, the Cove itself is phenomenally pretty and then dinner in the restaurant was 5* delicious. We had the most idyllic evening and couldn't have celebrated our anniversary any where more... More

If I could review the restaurant for atmosphere only, it would get a 5 star. But, the food really was disappointing. We arrived at the Saltry via the Danny J ferry. The dock is STEEP and frankly scary. I am an adult in relatively decent shape and I was worried that I would fall or break something just getting to... More

We visited on a warm sunny day and went for lunch. The boat ride over and back is pricey.. The lunch was good, the setting, being on a deck overlooking a beautiful cove on a sunny day was fantastic. Other than the restaurant, their isn't much to see and do on the island. Their are two buildings with work by... More

We visited the Saltry with a Homer resident, who recommended the restaurant. The ferry ride over was lovely but pricey, overpriced in our opinion. The menu was somewhat limited, maybe because it was somewhat near the end of the season. The location and surroundings are amazingly beautiful, we couldn't stop admiring our surroundings! The decks around halibut cove, connecting all... More

This was truly a fantastic evening and well worth our time and money to go! Halibut Cove is only accessible by private ferry (the Danny J). We boarded the Danny J around 5 pm for our 45 minute ride across to Halibut cove. The scenery was stunning and we saw two whales and many puffins along the way. Once we... More

My husband had heard about this restaurant and we were very excited to give it a try. As other reviewers have mentioned the boat ride is pleasant and beautiful and we had a gorgeous sunset on the way back to Homer. The service and the food? Not so good. Service was SLOW...and our server was not the least bit warm... More

Loved the boat ride but not so impressed with the restaurant service. When you are paying the prices they are asking I expect more dynamic , interested and enthusiastic service. The table wasn't laid and we just felt that the guy serving us really couldn't be bothered. Don't know if the normal chef was off our night but whoever prepared... More

We came here as a romantic night out on our honeymoon. The boat over and the surroundings of the harbor while you're eating are fantastic. We saw a bear, dolphins, and a sea otter while enjoying our meal, and many whales on the boat ride back! The service and the food left much to be desired. Their slogan is something... More
