“Pizza mediocre quality and pricey, service (a)pathetic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

With better service, Starvin' Marvin's in Homer, Alaska would rate an average. Pizza is okay (some in my party liked the butter crust), but the service was a let down. In the middle of the afternoon, with only our party in the place, it took an hour to get two pizzas. Cooks must be operating at the same level of enthusiasm as the waitress. Expected a far better experience based on the online reviews I've read.

“Starvin Marvin's Monday Special is a hit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Starvin Marvin's Monday Night special is a great value. ($9 buck per XL pie between 7 and * PM). Decor is old and a bit tired, but location on the spit base is great. Service was a bit frazzled and not very prompt, but it was fine for people not in a hurry Taste of pizza was good for Alaska standards.

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

When you want a relatively quick dinner or lunch and pizza sounds good, Starvin Marvin's is a good choice on the Spit. Our pizza was good and we would go there again.

“hmmmmmmmmmmmm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

I made the mistake of getting here late evening on a Saturday to order my pizza,but then when you say the place extremely busy it can only be a good sign!
I had to wait about 30 mins for my pick up but it was well worth it! Returned after 7 days in the back country and headed straight here for a pizza to reacquante myself with civilisation and only waited 10 mins on this occassion and received the same excellent pizza!

“Loved It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Truly loved this fabulous family run restaurant. By the way their salads are wonderful. I was amazed at the wonderful greens and vegetables found in Alaska. The view is quite nice.
