Good food, ok prices, dated interior

The food was good, the staff was friendly. We had breakfast and it was tasty. The interior is very dated, the water kinda tasted like that iron-rich water you drank at your grandparents house.

The waitress was wonderful, yet the food was terrible. The portions are very small and the cook couldn't even season our food with salt or pepper. While I waited an hour for our simple chicken strips and omelet, we saw, another customer complain about their food and yet another one walk out because service (the cook) was so painfully slow....

LITERALLY created a Trip Advisor account to write a review on this Restaurant. My girlfriend and I are generally big fans of mom and pop, greasy spoon type local restaurants when we visit a new place however if you ever get the chance to visit Homer, do yourself a favor and SKIP this place! Overall the food wasn't terrible but... More

This is a old dirty room in the bowling ally in Homer. The few times we were there the place was dirty and the service was poor. We will never return because of the condition of the carpet and the room itself. The food was ok and not over priced.

Food that sticks to your ribs is their flavor. Lots of it at a decent price. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Either location in Homer, or Soldotna are easy to find and a comfortable place to eat.

Food was average, menu had a lot of variety. This is a nice regular, run of the mill place to eat and you can always get a table. It is also open late!

We wanted a hot lunch at a sit down restaurant. We came across the Carbou. We both had a fish burger and fries. The sandwich left a lot to be desired. I guess this is a local spot, but would not recommend it to anyone.

Don't do it. Unless you're desperate and nothing else is open, as was the case for us. The server was very nice but the food was just terrible. When we returned to our B&B our hostess told us it was the worst place in town. But it was late, it was there and we were exhausted and hungry. My advice... More

Alaska Diner type food. Old, typical frozen in time AK restaurant. Good service. Nothing special, although you can get a decent meal.
