A Unique Place To Eat...Fat Olives!

Fat Olives is a great place to eat in Homer and you can tell by the wait time if you go of an evening or during lunch rush. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Salad and if you like pizza they make it right there on the spot and it is good. This is not a fast food place, you may... read more

Great service and delicious food whether you order pizza, sandwich or salad. We go for lunch and it's a 1 hour trip one way from home. But that's not a problem as the drive is along Cook inlet and the views are spectacular.

We have ate here several times and the one consistent aspect has been the rude wait staff to visitors. The food is decent but way overpriced. I suggest going to La Baleine 1 block past the Salty Dawg on the Spit if you want delicious food that's reasonably priced & friendly wait staff. La Baleine serves breakfast & lunch. You... More

I have ate at this restaurant a couple times with my wife. I won't eat here again. The wait staff is very stuck up with their noses in the air. The waiting area is an awkward place to wait for your table. If you choose to eat here I give you one challenge. Look at the bar when you come... More

People we had met at breakfast driving from Seward had recommended Fat Olives. I had the appetizer meatballs with flatbread and my husband had a calzone both were very good.

We had a pizza. Hand thrown and delicious. Sandwich portions are almost more than you can eat at one sitting. The servers and hostess were friendly and courteous. They have a full bar and wine selection. Get in and out quickly or stay and enjoy the show in the kitchen.

Yes the pizza looked and smelt great. I have never seen a 37" pizza before. But we weren't there to eat pizza. I just want to eat fresh Alaskan seafood and was so glad we ate here. My salmon was possibly the best I have ever eaten anywhere in the world. It was perfectly cooked. Yes it was cooked medium,... More

We were hungry for pizza and happened into the Fat Olive. We were surprised by the decor and delicious smell we noticed as soon as we walked in. The Pizza was AMAZING and CREATIVE - possibly some of the best ever. The waitress was friendly and the (owner?) nice woman noticed we were tourists and came over and gave us... More

Yummy food, recommended by locals! Nice atmosphere and great service too. Loved their house calzone that comes with a tasty caesar saiad, and the halibut skewers were also delicious!
