This place is a good place to watch any sports game while having a burger and beer. Other things on menu are fish, salads, and different sandwiches.

We stopped in for a light dinner. We had fish and chips, chowder and salad. Everything was good. Our waitress was very friendly and nice. Checked on us frequently. This would be a fun place to watch sports. They have inside and outside seating.

My wife and I ate there on our trip to Soldotna and Homer this summer. The food was great, the service was excellent. Has the feel of a nice family sports bar. The prime bites were fantastic.
