Pricey but decent.

Good food. Decent menu but a little pricey. Try and get there before 2:30 so you can take advantage of the lunch special. Our server was nice but not very informed on the menu. I would for sure recommend this place. Clean. Great view.

Affordable dining with many great tasting options. Got more food than I could eat and the prices were very reasonable.

Your menus are vague and confusing. I asked our server what was in a Bento Box, or something like that, and she explained that it would come with rice, a salad, fried dumplings and a California roll and soup. The food I got was good but since I didn't get 2 of the 5 things that I thought I was... More

We stopped in while we waited for a boat ride out of the harbor. I had the fish and chips which were delicious. My boyfriend had the sashimi salad. It was mediocre. The place is a little dirty (utensils and plates as well as the carpet and such.) A bit pricy.

I've been to Happy Face once before, and have been going back ever since. I love their food! My favorite is the Sweet and Sour Chicken. Out of the three places in Homer that offer this. (Safeway, Happy Face, and Young's) Yours has always been my favorite. They also serve American, which I have yet to try. Now the pricing... More

The food was so overpriced and not good quality. I will never go back. Felt we were taken advantage of and was not happy.

So excited to welcome these folks to Happy Face in Homer. Fresh, delicious, beautiful. Friendly service. Not cheap, but this is Alaska and the ingredients are excellent. The steamed pot stickers where light and flavorful. We will be back.

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.

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.
