We enjoyed dining here on the water. The service was very slow with just a few people there, but they were pleasant and the food was very good. You can dine inside or outside. They have a full bar.

This is a casual restaurant that is in an elegant setting on the waterfront with the marina and docks just beyond. You can sit inside or out on the deck and enjoy watching the boats go by, the bird fly overhead, or the harbor seals frolicking in the bay. They food is good, menu includes vegetarian choices and best in... More

Where to start. Situated on the ocean you would think that they would have some less than usual dishes and fish. Not the case. The place has zero atmosphere. The food was terrible. I ordered the fried oysters, this is the west coast, they have great oysters. Not at Café Marina. The oysters were small, thin and over-cooked. My wife... More

Went for an early dinner so the dining room was not very full. They offer a wide variety of salads, seafood, steak and pastas. We both had the Petrale Sole which was brought before we had a chance to eat our salads. However the meal was tasty with generous portions. We easily split a monstrous ice cream sundae. Great views... More

Fun, informal with all the basics. Lots of fish because this is a coastal and bay region. Full bar and lots of action. Food is diverse and healthy.

This restaurant is on an island perched right on the dock where fishing boats come in and go out. The approach is beautiful because of all the amazing trees surrounding the parking area. We chose to stay in since we weren't used to the drop in temperature from inland CA. But we had a dockside seat nevertheless. We did the... More

This is the best place to eat in Eureka. The food is delicious and the views are amazing. We eat here every time we come North and usually more than once. We've never had a bad meal or poor service. Love this place.
