Hoped for a good seafood lunch. Clam chowder was like water, clams were minced from a can. Not good at all, sent it back. Fish and chips, Halibut under cooked, chips were ok, some under cooked. Would tell anyone to find someplace else.

Now the food is average, at best. The portions are small. The prices are high for the quality and quantity. Find somewhere else for breakfast.

A strange restaurant where the waitresses wore blue disposable gloves and a man stood behind a counter and watched the patrons the entire time. Not sure if he was at a sushi bar, a cook, a manager…just strange. The food is pricey for what they serve and did not taste good. They advertise oriental and american food but lean more... More

While they have seafood, this is a place to take a break from all that. Philadelphia sandwich on sour dough bread and Chinese food were both good. Still can't get lunch for two for less than $40 anywhere on the Spit. It's expensive everywhere.

You can enjoy the wonderful variety of dishes and watch the chief as he makes the sushi. He does a fine job and you may wish to ask him to make up a special dish for you. He is a fine photographer and if you plan on eating here on a second day ash him to bring in his photo... More

I was really looking forward to getting some sushi here as lots of Homer locals state it's great; however, I was not overly impressed and the overall feel of the restaurant was kind of tight and dark (we were there on a beautiful sunny day.) If you're looking for some Asian style cuisine this may be your only bet on... More

Food excellent. We had a variety of rolls and they were all good. The server was decent not overly friendly but not rude. Food came out quick and was yummy.

Affordable dining with many great tasting options. Got more food than I could eat and the prices were very reasonable.

Good food. Decent menu but a little pricey. Try and get there before 2:30 so you can take advantage of the lunch special. Our server was nice but not very informed on the menu. I would for sure recommend this place. Clean. Great view.

Your menus are vague and confusing. I asked our server what was in a Bento Box, or something like that, and she explained that it would come with rice, a salad, fried dumplings and a California roll and soup. The food I got was good but since I didn't get 2 of the 5 things that I thought I was... More
