Restaurant
“Located in Old town Kenai it’s the best burger in town by far! Served out of an eccentric school bus this low-key place has been serving up spectacular summertime burgers for 20+ years. Seating is limited to a few picnic tables and check the hours or call before you go but its well worth it!”

Bar
$$
“Full service bar with great on tap beers. Roomier than The Back Door and does live music and dancing plus has a full room dedicated to darts and 2 pool tables. Everything I have ever had here was really well done and was a great value (check out the buffalo chicken dip and the pork street tacos). Note: Main Street Bar & Grill is fully non-smoking but there is a very nice outdoor smoking section that you can dine and drink in if you’re so inclined.”

Restaurant
“A Kenai institution that’s been in business longer than I have been alive. Their menu runs everything from Greek (the best) to Seafood, American, Mexican or Italian. Everything they do, they do well. Hands down it’s also the best pizza in Kenai as well. The bar provides full service drinks and they also deliver.”

Bagel Shop

“Nice atmosphere. Rumor has it they have K-Bay coffee. This is my favorite all time coffee roasted in Homer AK. If they make it right, you'll probably order a second cup before you leave the premises.”
