2 Best Restaurants in Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park, The Kenai Peninsula and Southcentral Alaska

The Saltry Restaurant

$$$ Fodor's choice

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. 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, which requires you return the same way in which you came unless you've secured lodging on the Cove.
