This is a very interesting restaurant. There are dollar bills all over the walls and ceiling encouraging you to return for a drink. There is free wifi as well. Didn’t notice many people eating but there were a lot of drinks on the table.

Bring cash..or they do have an ATM. A great hangout with very friendly staff. We visited both days we were on the Spit. Well worth the stop. Best gin and tonic in Alakska..

Part of this awesome bar is a very historic building on the Homer Spit. It is cozy and clean. The bar is covered in signed dollar bills which you really must do!

It is *the* place people stop in, and it shows when you're trying to get a drink at the bar and it takes twenty minutes. It's unique and worth a stop, but be prepared to order two drinks at a time so you don't have...More
