“Fat Olives Food was Delicious"”
Reviewed September 24, 2010

Our first night in Homer we ate at Fat Olives. The restaurant is a pizzaria/italian restaurant. The night we were there the restaurant was so crowed there was an hour wait for dinner, so we ate at the bar. It had a nice atmosphere. One wall of the bar is opened to the brick oven, so the room was really warm. I had a shrimp and pasta dish and my husband had the salmon special and both of them were very good. With drinks/tip, our bill was approxmately $70.00, which seemed to be on par with most of the other "nice" restaurants in Homer.

“Slooooooooooooow.”
Reviewed September 19, 2010

The food was great but you could go do your laundry while waiting to get served. Calling in for carryout might be the way to go.

“Terrible, Terrible, Terrible!”
Reviewed September 11, 2010

We thought we were going to have a great dinner at Fat Olives, but we were very WRONG! We showed up about 8:30 and had a very small wait. We proceeded to sit down, it took about 5-7 minutes to just get our waters. And when they did arrive we thought the lady was our waitress and we asked if she could tell us the specials. She proceeded to tell us that she was not our waitress and that she would be her in a few minutes to tell us the specials. I am not quite sure why she couldn't have just told us the specials...? Our waitress came after about another 5-7 minutes and then gave us the specials. As with other travelers that you will read, we were told specifically that pizzas take a very long time and if we truly truly want one, they included one menu for us to share. We placed our order and never saw our waitress at our table again until the bill. A few other bigger tables sat down and she proceeded to concentrate on these tables and not ours. I am thinking because they were ordering bottles of wine and were her money table for a bigger tip. I was extremely disappointed in this restaurant. It seemed to treat tourists very bad, but yet we are making their business strive. I would for sure skip this restaurant if I travel back to Homer. The attitude and atmosphere is not worth it at all. Someone needs to teach those ladies some manners!!!!

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed September 8, 2010

Best pizza around. Great place, with great service. Fills up fast, so get there early. Had to sit at the bar due to the crowds, but it would've been worth the wait.

This is very good pizza. Just try to go at off hours unless you don't mind a long wait.
