We usually eat here when we over-night on our way to Oregon. It's convenient to the Super 8 Motel (just across the parking lot) and the food is fair to good. We've had burgers, sandwiches and soup, which have all been good, but the chili and the mac and cheese, not so great. It has a nice, relaxed atmosphere, with... More

My meal was less than satisfactory. The meat in my Reuben seemed to be spiced like a hot dog. My onion rings arrived cold. The chili tasted like the canned variety. My beer was cold and tasty.

Great food and beer. The twenty-one anniversary ale is too die for. For dinner we had a portabella sandwich with the works fries. A must try.

yes, awesome, busy and loud. Had the pulled pork sandwich for the first time and it was amazingly good. Can't remember what my wife ordered but she also was very pleased, and that is sometimes hard to do.

We were 3 People eating together. One Got cold ribs, had to send it back. No excuse were given. When the ribs came second time it was cold again. And still No excuse, then we left. One of us very hungry, the other two not at all happy with the food they had.

We were in Fortuna for four days and enjoyed the Eel River Brewing Company for a beer tasting and lunch as well as dinner another night. Stormy was our server both times. She is friendly and very efficient. The beer sample was large as are the meal portions. The sampler was fun to taste and we enjoyed our meals both... More

The place was packed and I had no reservation. I was told the wait would be 20 minutes, but was seated in ten. Service was prompt. I ordered a Reuben sandwich; it was tasty, but sandwich was plated upside down, so sauerkraut made the bread soggy and the sandwich hard to eat. I assume this was not normal, but it... More

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
