The Little Mermaid was totally worth the wait for reservations. The food was fresh, flavorful and thoughtfully prepared. A delicious meal to end our enjoyable stay in Homer. I highly recommend you get a reservation when visiting!

Food was amazing and creative. Service was fast and friendly. The menu had something for everyone in our family. We liked it so much that we tried to go back, but it's a small place and we couldn't get in. Make a reservation at least a few weeks in advance, if you have a bigger group

We visited Homer at the end of the season and we didn't find much open. We were glad we found Little Mermaid. Great sliders and poutine. Small, cozy place with good service!

We visited Homer on a Holland America Cruise. From reading the other reviews, I guess we were lucky to get a table when we just walked in without a reservation. My husband and I both had the hot dog and fries, with the pickled onions. It was amazing! One of the best meals we had on our trip!! They also... More

It's incredible to have such a great fine dinning spot in little Homer. Right on the water on the spit, the views are also incredible. The stone bowl was full of delish items and the Thai prawn appetizer was huge and abounding in flavor. Make reservations and head on in! Also when they have them the Raw oysters had a... More

By far the best food on the homer spit. The best value is the sliders and the basket of fries. The rice bowl and the fish tacos are great as well. Actually everything is great, they make pizza too. Be sure and make a reservation or plan on waiting half an hour to a hour or more to be seated.

My wife and I always consult TripAdvisor anywhere we go before deciding on where to eat for lunch and dinner. Little Mermaid was also recommended to us by our host in Homer. It's a small restaurant. We made reservations 1 day ahead but were still booked for 8.15pm a day later. The small building stands on the Homer Spit above... More

Best food on the spit but you need reservations to get in. Small and quaint right near the harbor and good shopping.

We enjoyed our visit to Little Mermaid. The Caesar Salad with rockfish was wonderful. The establishment states they serve food made from fresh ingredients... it's true! We witnessed a local farmer bringing in fresh produce. I would definitely recommend!
