Doris is alive and well at the Homestead. She may have passed on but her food, the elegance and beauty of the Homestead still remain. And the chicken is out of this world! A good time is waiting for you.- drewmcgoo
On a recent visit (last night in fact) I went to dinner at the Alki Homestead Restaurant and boy, wow, surprise! The food was great...more gourmet than what I heard in the past. Ah Hah! New owner, NEW chef (as of Dec 2006) and an upgraded menu with a full wine list that was hand picked by the new chef (and general manager) himself! This guy knows what he's doing alright. The ambiance is a wonderful setting that welcomes you as soon as you enter the doors. For those of you who haven't made a return visit in a while, you have to give it another try. Congratulations Homestead...think you'll be seeing more and more customers. Hope you can handle the business.
Would recommend this restaurant for being unique. Food mediocre--NY steak was a poor piece of meat------mashed potatoes are watery----veggies are canned or overcooked frozen. Appetizer--artichoke/spinach dip is very good--so is the chicken. Our server was very good.
cocktails are good but pricey. Dessert looked good. Almost $150.00 4 people with tip. Both steaks ordered were poor cuts and the restaurant did deduct one from the bill we told her not to deduct both.
Chicken dinner is the best bet family style but Poppye's Chicken is just as good & biscuits are better.
There have been some subtle upgrades (fresh vegetables!) to this historic restaurant recently, but the 100-year-old log structure is an experience in itself. Widely known for the best friend chicken in the city, the Homestead does in fact make it better than grandma.
Best fried chicken you can get anywhere, with good mashed potatos and gravy. The rest of the dinner (i.e., soup, salad, vegetables, biscuits) are mediocre though I think the jam is homemade. They serve steaks and other entrees, but I would only recommend the chicken.
The ambience is romantic and delightful in a log cabin filled with antiques, white tablecloths and candlelight.
The service is pleasant and unrushed.
Not for dieters, but they give you enough chicken to have for lunch the next day!
The fried chicken is the best you can buy at a restaurant. When you go, get the all-you-can-eat chicken dinner (only $13.50) and you will not be disappointed. The setting is an incredible log house completed in 1904 with many of the original furnishings. The giant rhododendron trees surrounding the building are also amazing. Plus, you have the most fantastic beach (Alki Beach) just across the road. What more could you ask for in dining?
