Fodor's Alaska 2014
Saltry Restaurant Review
On a hill overlooking Halibut Cove, this is a wonderful place to soak up a summer afternoon. Local seafood is the main attraction, prepared as everything from curries and pastas to sushi. They also serve fresh-baked bread, and their salads are made of freshly harvested greens from their gardens. The restaurant is small, and although the tables aren't exactly crowded together, it's definitely intimate. When weather permits, get a table on the deck. Dinner seatings are at 6 and 7:30; before or after dinner you can stroll around the boardwalks at Halibut Cove and visit the art galleries or just relax on the dock. Sea otters often play just offshore. Reservations are essential for the ferry ($30 round-trip), which leaves Homer Spit at 5 pm. A noon ferry ($50) will take you to the Saltry for lunch (¢–$), stopping along the way for wildlife-viewing.
