We are from Chicago, and we know great pizza. Fat Olives has great pizza. Crunchy crust and a good blend of ingredients. Other, main entrees that we tried on a separate visit were very good, but the pizza is what makes this place worth five stars. Oh, and the local Homer Brewing beer.....

I get it that this is a local favorite and that probably everyone is already used to the protocol, but for someone just walking into the restaurant things can be a bit confusing. We stepped in and appropriately waited at the “wait to be seated” sign. The host was scurrying around working on seating others. She took our name and... More

Came across this place by chance. Conveniently located, friendly staff and fantastic food. The spinach salad was amazing. The half size was more than generous and followed by the salmon cakes - I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. Prices were reasonable about $20 including tip. Definitely recommend.

We went because I read on TripAdvisor the prices were reasonable. My husband and I thought they were high. So we just ordered pizza and shared it. The pizza crust was hard I couldn't cut it with a knife ,the taste wasn't good ever. We wouldn't eat there again.

Fat Olives became our 'go to' place while in Homer. We went 3 times, ate once in the restaurant and got carryout salads and pizza the other two times. The salmon burger was very good and the mac 'n cheese is worth waiting for. Staff was very nice.

It was our first vist, but the waitress treated us like old friends and made perfect suggestions. Wow! It was an excellent pizza. And our dessert was smoooooth! We love the place -- wish we didn't live closer (4,587 miles is so far). But this place made Home a hit in our book.
