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

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.

We had lunch and dinner here, and all our choices were delicious. I loved the beet salad and the coconut shrimp. Lunch was a bit expensive but dinner prices a good value for the quality

Having dinner at the Chart Room Restaurant was a great way to spend our last night in Homer. We had a delicious dinner and dessert, whilst sitting beside the window and enjoying the views. The prices were a little on the expensive side, but we were thoroughly pleased with the meals, service and ambiance. I would definitely eat here again.

We had breakfast here during our stay. Had the crab Benedict which was great. Tried the "house made" reindeer sausage - my opinion, don't waste your money on it! Could not tell anything about the contents of the sausage - could have been pork just as easily. The rest of the meal was fine.

Stayed at Land's End Resort and had breakfast in The Chart Room Restaurant. Ordered Crab Cake & Crab/Artichoke Benedict that was served with almost hard cooked eggs (waitress took back and brought proper eggs). Reindeer sausage casing was tough. Would not recommend this place.
