Funky older Homer restaurant

There are some good specials and the fried chicken basket is good. The ambiance is okay, hard to beat the views. This place has been around for years.

I am a Homer local and eat here ofte. Service and food quality are always dependable and consistent. Now they have a sushi bar(added this winter) that is very good.

This place is a complete ripoff. I went there late night last week and ordered the beef yakisoba and some soups. When I got home to eat I found the food to be tasteless and seemed to have been microwaved and definitely not freshly cooked. It was disgusting. Not to mention the prices are RIDICULOUS. Paid almost 50$ for everything.... More

Arriving on the Homer Spit in the off season limited our offerings of places to eat. We enjoyed the fish and chips meal.

This place has a new sushi chef, and is under new management! It's about 1,000,000,000 times better than last time! In fact, I dare say the sushi was AMAZING! Give her a go again! We'll be eating here all winter long!

Food was tasteless and portions were small. We had fish & chips, the fish looked like cheap frozen fish and tasted about the same. Clam chowder had lots of clams but no taste. Nice view though

The food was great and a nice change from all of the fish that we had been eating at the other places. I thought the decor needed some updating but the people were very friendly and the food was good.

My hubby & I could not decide where to eat lunch while out on the spit, but we finally chose Happy Face Restaurant. Couldn't really tell what kind of place it was as you had to walk up a very steep ramp to get to the second story we the restaurant was located. We walked in and were seated right... More
