Fodor's Review

It's hard to say which is better at The Saltry, the setting or the cuisine. At the top of the dock overlooking Halibut Cove, this is one of Southcentral's most beautiful places to sit and soak up the pleasures of a summer afternoon. Locally caught seafood, the restaurant's specialty, is prepared with finesse, and the dish for vegetarians is always a mouthwatering delight. Dinner seatings are at 6 and 7:30. Before or after dinner you can stroll Halibut Cove's boardwalks and visit the two art galleries, or just relax on the dock. Reservations are essential for the ferry ($38 round-trip), which leaves Homer Spit at 5 pm. A noon ferry ($58) will whisk you to The Saltry for lunch, with stops along the way for wildlife viewing.
