Ate breakfast several days. Folks who were there early were wonderful -- laid back, friendly, provided great service without acting s if they were doing it. Food was great. Appeared to be popular with Homer local folks.

good food, moderately priced, although $3.50 for a muffin seemed high. I expected bread to come with my breakfast at least toast. service was quick, place was clean

Had breakfast here and the food was very average. Would not return. Service was ok, but the food was lacking in flavor.

Good food at good prices. The owner chatted with us for a while which added to our enjoyment of the restaurant. I had the homemade soup and a pancake. My husband had veggie burger which he enjoyed a lot. We would go again for sure.

Saw they made the MSN list of top diner in Alaska so had to try it while in Homer having done diners and dives all over the country. Could have been a Texas Roadhouse based upon setup, music (Stevie Ray, Gregg Allman, Jimmy Buffett) and friendly folk working there - really enjoyed. Food was OK but not great. Felt sort... More

Ate here twice during a week long Homer fishing trip. Great service, coffee and food. Try the corned beef hash breakfast and you won't need a lunch. The reindeer sausage looked good too. Wish we had a breakfast place like this in Virginia.

My husband and I decided to check this place out a few weeks ago after seeing it listed as one of Alaska's best diners. Duncan House fits the bill completely- it is unpretentious and cozy. We were greeted with a smile at the door and seated after a short wait on a busy Saturday morning. Our server was friendly and... More

Ok I know the six of us can be overwhelming fun .... It took a bit for our waiter to warm up to us ...but when he did, he was awesome. We have found that Alaskans tend to be standoffish until they learn you really don't want anything from them! Such as the case. Food was delicious and hot! Thanks... More

Met friends for breakfast and found a good place to eat. Menu was plenty big and all food tried was very good. Service was fast and very nice. Coffee refills did not have to be asked for. Price was decent and good value
