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!

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....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!

Dinner menu looks great. We are considering eating here for dinner, but we will be traveling with our young son. Is dinner time family friendly?

In our experience, it was not kid friendly. Take a look through the the reviews and see if the items mentioned sound like some thing your kiddo would eat. Also the place is tiny - definitely no room for a high chair and... More

At Little Mermaid, we handcraft our food daily, using the best in fresh local fish, meats, and produce. Our professional staff is extremely knowledgable about the ingredients, final preparation, wine and beer offerings.
