Eaten here a few times, nothing great for sure. Food is average at best, service decent and decor is worn

Our family of 4 loved this restaurant. We were there for breakfast. The portions were huge and it was very reasonably priced. Our waitress was very friendly and patient with us as we asked many questions about more than just the menu. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The Caribou Family Restaurant is easy to find near downtown Homer, Alaska. It has a good selection of breakfasts, although not the biggest portions. Therefore, five sourdough pancakes are recommended.

First stop was for a take out breakfast. Waited for over 10 minutes before leaving since no one even provided a menu or stopped by to ask what I wanted to order. Second visit was to have lunch.

Soup/Salad bar excellent. Quantity of food is excellent. All food is prepared in house in small batches, giving it great flavor

Not high end cuisine but a 'Denny's" type home made food place. Service tends to be a little slow so don't be in a hurry,. But the portions are good and it has a great view and breakfast buffett.

I loved this place. Home style cooking.. One of the few places that offer soup and salad bar at no extra cost with the meal. Reasonable priced. Very friendly.
