This Greek restaurant is a mainstay in Winnipeg. The food is quite good and the service is always very friendly. Be sure to try the Flaming Saganaki! The Lamb dishes are my favorite.

I phoned in an order for 6 take-out dinners. We picked it up and was still warm by the time we got home. The chicken souvlaki, lemon potatoes, greek salad and tzatziki sauce were excellent. Would definitely do this again. The price was very reasonable. And we even had leftovers.

When we arrived a table had been set up in an area where everyone could be accommodated and allowed conversations to take place. The dining room was bright and the service was excellent. The restaurant specializes in a good selection of Greek dishes. The dishes well presented. Everyone left well satisfied with their experience.

I have been eating here since 1982 and Homer's is only getting better. And the lunch time value is amazing. They treat you like a king. Food is delicious.

I was there for dinner and ordered Pork Medallions off their menu. I was told "you can't have that because it is not on our lunch menu". I said it is 6 PM and I am here for dinner. She then said she would go and see if they can make it. I ordered it with rice and it came... More

I took a family of 4 and a friend there for dinner last night. The waitress was prompt and engaging, catering appropriately to the interests of the 8 year old boy who loved the home made rolls so much he asked his mother to buy them for him every day. They are indeed excellent. The range of Greek food and... More

Homer's Restaurant at 520 Ellice Avenue, Winnipeg, is an older iconic restaurant, named the city's best Greek restaurant. My wife and I recently stopped in for an early dinner, just beating a very large crowd that arrived shortly after. As expected, the food is delicious Greek fare, pleasantly presented and served by a very attentive and knowledgeable sever, who ensured... More

Average at best, rack of lamb was not flavorful, not dressed with herbs, chicken was dry and potatoes were dull. Soup was very good and salad had lots of flavor.

Had supper at Homer's recently while visiting Winnipeg. Having heard that this was a wonderful restaurant with great Greek food I have to say we expected much better. I ordered the Chicken a la Greque which was severely overcooked. I ordered rice with it and was given lemon roasted potatoes. I pointed this out, they returned 'eventually' with some rice... More
