The food at this tiny restaurant was great as was the service.However the noise level is very high.We couldnt hear the wait staff or each other ,which made our meal less than perfect.

We came to Homer to get the boat ready for fishing season. Went to Cups on Saturday night and was not disappointed. The specials were all very good, a stuffed pork chop, fresh rockfish and cod, and a clam & prawn pasta dish. Loved it all. Oh and did I mention the oysters? They had a baked one that we... More

We eat at Cups quite often, and have yet to be disappointed. The wines are delicious, the food is always fresh and perfectly prepared. Occasionally we'll bring the kids, but it gets spends for a family affair. And though the prices aren't cheap, they are fair. I'd say you definitely get what you pay for, and that is great atmosphere,... More

Cups is a great restaurant with great specials and local seafood made into creative dishes. I always go for 1 of their specials, either seafood or a meat dish. Always happy with their food.

We have eaten at the Cups many times over the years and are always unhappy with the food, service and noise. When we go to Homer during the off season there are few restraunts open and we seem to be forced to eat at the Cups because we forget from year to year how bad it is. The menue is... More

We enjoy Cups Cafe for our birthday dinners. We li e that their verbal menu is longer than their printed menu. Their halibut tacos are a simple delicious treat. Any of their seafood dishes are flavorful. Our all time favorite special that they had was the teriyaki seared scallops with caramelized onion ice cream. You must make reservations, especially in...

Great food. The menu has something for everyone. The staff was working non-stop. This is a busy little place. You know it's good when the locals frequent the place.

There are no wrong choices on this menu. Fresh caught seafood, local beef and farmers market vegetables make it all worth the price. Don't miss Cafe Cups, reservations recommended.

I had some local king Salmon and Cod. It was delicious. I love how they have local seafood on their menu, so fresh. Very Friendly staff too.

My first time here, though my wife has been before and was excited to show me this place. I can see why--tremendous dining experience. I rarely give full star ratings, but this place deserves it on the explosion of flavors alone. But then add to that, a small and homey atmosphere. The appetizer of prawns with a this chorizo mixture... More
