I really enjoyed my meal. Smoked trout-tip sandwich.... emerald IPA to wash it all down with! Oh and don't forget to upgrade your fries to cheese and garlic fries. Amazing!! Good times. Good food. Will be back.

We had a great date here. Our server Caleb did a great job. Food came out really fast. My pulled pork sandwich was very good. The beer batter chicken straps were good. You can tell they were made in house. The cheese and garlic fries were delicious but be forewarned the garlic is strong. Overall, this was a great place... More

good ol' southern peanuts on the floor bar with great people serving and good food! 101 was closed, so an unplanned stop in Fortuna meant we had to find a place to stay and a recommend for eating. Great beer and great food in a friendly atmosphere - worth a detour!!

We were staying in Ferndale and could not find a good place for dinner until a recommendation to go to nearby Fortuna. Glad we did. Great fish and chips and local beer. Noisy with little ambience, but not a problem. It's a pub.

I had the Ragin' Cajun burger. My wife had a lunch plate. Both of us had the fires with garlic. The fires were somewhat of a buzz kill. Fires were good, but the garlic was just minced and in globs. It was a hit and miss sort fo thing, either garlic overload or none at all. Burgers were dry and... More

Easy walk from nearby hotels. Unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere. Beer is organic and quite good. Non-alcoholic beer available. Menu is long with lots of options. Good selection for vegetarians as well as meat lovers. Nice homey find on a long trip far from home.
