If you're heading down the Kenai Peninsula to Homer, check out these great restaurants:

Lands End - and tell Jon if you have a bad meal - he'll make it right
Fat Olives - great Mediterranean food - tell Lisa and Tiny we sent you
The Homestead - super steaks and seafood - Sharlene and Rick will take care of you
Cafe Cups - excellent food in a casual environment
Cosmic Kitchen - a locals favorite, great food
Two Sisters - great food, overlooking the Bay

And, if you want a fantastic seafood meal, take the Danny J, an old wooden boat, to Halibut Cove, and dine at The Saltry - fantastic scenery, great food, fresh from the Bay

The list could go on, but you get the idea.

Had a great breakfast in Homer, forgot the name of the place, but somewhere along the way to the spit. Out on the spit was standard tourist fare. Also had a great breakfast in Girdwood, again, don't remember the name of the place!

Had breakfast in Hyder once and when asked how things were I replied, "The coffee was too thin, the grits were too thick, but, the gravy was just right! One out of three ain't bad, I guess!"

In addition to the great list posted by sdennislee, I'd add the following in Anchorage:

Marx Brothers Cafe
Glacier Brew Pub
Southside Bistro

And, for a huge, old fashioned breakfast (and other meals), try Gwennie's Old Alaska Restaurant in Spenard. You'll get LOTS for your money!

I would have included Gwennies but I always get bad coffee when I go. The reindeer sausage is great though and you do get a ton of food.

Forgot about the Glacier Brew Pub.

I'll have to agree on the coffee at Gwennie's...could be better. But the reindeer sausage sorta makes up for it.

We're sitting in Destruction Bay in the Yukon Territory. Tomorrow we head for Haines. Then to Skagway and the road home (thru Banff and Jasper).

Alaska, my friends, exceeded all of my expectations (except the food at about 1/3 of the restaurants we stopped at). We cooked a lot of our own.

An ordinary person cannot find the words to describe the beauty of Alaska. Over every hill and around every curve is a new vista to marvel at. The clouds and rain sometimes get in the way for short periods of time, but oh my gosh, what beauty. Five weeks in Alaska was not enough to see and do everything, but we saw a lot and did a lot. Memories to treasure.

Seems that my OP touched a sore spot with some folks. I innocently offered an opinion and several had to put me in my place. No, I do not expect perfection. I know that the raw materials cost a lot in Alaska. I simply was surprised that there could be such a high percentage of poor restaurant cooks in one state. I could have been unlucky in my choices, but I've not experienced this high percentage in any of the 50 states. So sorry if your toe got stepped on, but snide remarks to posters seem to be the norm nowadays. Some of you offered good restaurants to visit and I appreciate your suggestions. I just picked the wrong ones to eat at and should have kept my thoughts to myself.

All this talk and no mention of Finn's Pizza in Homer? Love the food, love the place!
We use Yelp.com and if nothing sounds good, we eat at home. We never eat at McDonalds. We've found that the locals are glad to tell where they like to eat!

Roadhouse (famous for pancakes, community tables), Talkeetna (3 meals)
Snow City (very popular, crowded breakfast joint), Anchorage
Two Sisters (great coffee, sticky buns), Homer
Jewell Gardens (organic from gorgeous organic garden), Skagway
Gustavus Inn (as close to 5 star that we've experienced), Gustavus. Won Robert Beard award in 2010 and has lived up to its reputation, we think.
DW's home cooking in our Reyo and out on our grill can't be beat!

Ok fish and chips several places. Decided halibut cheeks are way over rated and over priced. Red Dog in Juneau a disappointment. Simon's & Seaport in Anchorage too expensive for what it delivers. $100 for two, including a beer and a glass of wine. Skipped desert.

I've spent a lot of time in Alaska over the years-- worked out in Dutch for a bit, up north of Anchorage, lots and lots of stops in ANC when I was flying. I never had any problem with the food.

But we just drove across the US of A, and damn near starved trying to cross Indiana! Couldn't find one restaurant that was worth the time spent parking the coach and walking into the building and sitting at a table to try to order something worth eating even if blah.. blah.. blah.. yada... yada... yada..........

Shows your driving a 40'. DP. Hundreds of Walmarts in Indiana. Looks like maybe you could of bought something & fixed in that 40' coach. Although I live in Indiana and if you saw me for sure I'm not starving!!!

Never had such problems.
At meal time, if we choose to eat out, we look for the busiest place. Easy-peasy!
Now there are apps like Yelp.
The food in Indiana and everywhere else (49 states so far) has been nothing short of grand, as long as we do a bit of research.

Shipshawanna, IN has great eats, and also Elkhart.

Sorry to Challenger, CampDaven, and any others...... I had noticed that the OP of this thread is from Indiana, and my intent was to turn the tables with a bit of sarcasm. Apparently too subtle. I actually like just about everything about Indiana, except their fuel prices, and have had many enjoyable meals there.
