The Homestead Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
they advertised 2 for 1 appetizers and that is why we went. We tried this restaurant 4 yrs. ago and wasn't all that great then that is why we didn't come back. So we thought we would give it another try and it was still pretty much the same thing. Although I did get a hair in my appetizer which was off putting. They brought me another app but everyone was finished eating by the time it got there!! I was not overly impressed with the food and the decor has not changed at all since the last time we were there.
Our meal was outstanding, and this is a must-stop restaurant if you're in Homer. The seafood dishes are creative and cooked to perfection. The meat lover in our party was also impressed with his meal. Our server was also outstanding, knowledgable about the menu and also local sights. One of our best meals in Alaska!
Well worth the drive out of Homer to this quaint restaurant with a great view. The food and wine selections were excellent. They seemed short a waitress when we were there but the bartender and hostess pitched in to help and we were well taken care of. The calamari appetizer was the best ever. The seafood was cooked to perfection. The steak-eaters loved their meals. Dessert was shared around the table and there wasn't a bite left. We will definitely return. You should go here!
We found the food to be ok, but very pricey. The portions were very large. Three of us split an appetize and the king crab legs, and the bull was $105.
The shrimp app was just ok, it locked in spicing and flavor.
The king crab was very good, but they didn't even serve it with butter.
All in all, i would not go back.
A must-do for any visit to Homer! I can't say enough about the staff, the food, the view! Very personable but not overly attentive staff who were very knowledgable about the menu; excellent local food choices such as fresh seafood dishes; a wide variety of drinks available, including beer and wines that are made locally; decadent desserts. The best food that I've had in Homer. Beautiful view of Kachemak Bay as well.
Went specifically to have oysters. After way too long to get our orders, the waitress informed us they were out of oysters. The six of us then had to rearrange how we wanted the meal to go. Though service was not good, the food (especially the prime rib) was very good. It's amazing how a disappointment and poor service can ruin a relative great meal.
The staff was friendly and the food delicious and not overpriced. We enjoyed sitting at the window and having a great view. The ambience was okay, but could be a little bit cozier. There is a lot parking space, but no possibility to sit outside (we didn't see any). I would recommend that restaurant to friends for a nice dinner.
We had a wonderful evening at the Homestead on Thursday with a friend visiting Alaska for the first time. The food was prepared to perfection using local ingredients. The wine list was quite suitable as well. Our server, Melody, was delightful and helpful. The view was amazing. We were not rushed and could enjoy our conversation. We will definitely be back with more guests.
We were in Homer for the umpteenth time. This place is about nine miles away from town and we hadn't ever noticed it. The service was perfect. We had a short wait for our table but we were ourselves late so it was not excessive. The bartender was friendly and there was none of the crowding and jostling that waits at some restaurants entail. The food was Serb. Mostly local ingredients and all obviously carefully prepared and plated. The portions were Alaska Size in spite being Fine dining top quality cooking. We will be back soon as we get to Homer again,
Our server was outstanding (Caroline???-blond). The filet mignon was superb as was the marrow of the bone. The prime rib was not very good. The drinks were smooth and strong. The dessert just melted in your mouth. It was about a 15 minute drive out of Homer, but worth it!
This is a real dining gem of the Kenai Peninsula. One of Homer's BEST KEPT dining secrets and only 8 miles out of town. We would walk there if we had to. The food, service and ambiance is superb and REAL Alaskan dining at it's finest. And Mr. Vern, the Bartender, is a real bartender.
Place was clean, but not high class like their prices. Paper over a white table cloth. Plain decor. No ambiance. Sky high prices. Good food, but not great. I would go again, maybe. For the price, the food should have been better prepared, and more plentiful portions. Here we are in Alaska, and the king crab legs prices are higher than they are on the east coast. I don't get it. Step up your game some and the prices you command might be worth it. 3 star restaurant at 5 star prices.
Good food, the smoked prime rib was outstanding, both is flavor and tenderness. The portions were big even for the 12 oz. cut, was all I could eat. Service was 150% spot on. Tables were arranged to give a very adequate amount of space. The scenery out the windows was exquisite. a reservation is recommended, then request a window if you can. Local upper end clients patronize this restaurant. Not the cheapest in town, then again what's cheap in Alaska in July. The drive from the downtown Homer, Alaska area was about 8.5 miles out of town. Would definitely go again having the opportunity.
We were recommended the Homestead Restaurant by our B&B owner (Homer Cottonwood Cabins...a treehouse no less!) upon our arrival to Homer. We've been to Homer several times, but never ventured down East-End Road. We had know idea the restaurant even existed! What an absolute delight to discover it. The hostess greeted us warmly and seated us at a table with an amazing view. Our waitress was immediately present and sold me on the White Wine Poached Salmon special instantly. My husband ordered the duck from the main menu and both items were BEYOND expectation. I am still dreaming of that salmon... The adult beverage list was quite impressive as well. Our entire evening was a success. Our sons (10 yo) even tried the foie gras!!! And, liked it. We will return!!
