Captain Patties, located so close to the sea you can almost taste it! A favorite of locals for their scallops, prawns, steak and delicious side dishes. At Captain Patties you will feel right at home while dining on some of the best seafood in the state. In the summer it is best to call ahead for reservations.

Nothing too special to write about. You could make the same quality of food at home and save a couple of hundred bucks.

We happened in there one afternoon on the first leg of our land tour. They had a special of "All you can eat" fish and chips. It was AWESOME. The fish was very fresh and favorable. Wanted the Salmon dip, but too full to eat so took it to go and had for dinner.

We were fortunate enough to visit Captain Patties near the end of their season. They were offering "All You Can Eat" specials during the last two weeks of business before they close for the winter. I got to enjoy some awesome fried shrimp while my friend had some world famous Halibut caught by the Homer fishermen. In addition to our... More

The locals recommended this for seafood and they where correct - typical at the coast décor, the staff seemed experienced and the food was good. Excellent Chowder, Crab & Halibut. Was out on the wharf in tourist land but a very good experience.

Ate there on recommendations of locals. Was not disappointed. Had the seafood sampler. A real feast for flat landers from the low48. Halibut Capitol of the world, that's what the sign said. Would go back.

Husband and I went to Captain Patties twice during our 4 days in Homer this past August. It was recommended by local couple who told us "You can't go wrong with Captain Patties. Just go in!" They were right. The seafood sampler was so good, I had it both nights. I never do anything like that. We would recommend going... More

You just cannot go to Homer, Alaska and not have halibut for at least one meal. Captain Patties is located on the spit and really doesn't look like much. They are crowded and not as noisy as one would expect. The food is exceptional and the very is great as well. The menu is reasonably priced. Don't know if they... More
